Baby sleep torture.

My baby is cute. Adorable. Everyone tells him so. Strangers on the street, in the supermarket, the hospital, Kohls, Walmart, etc etc. Even I think he is absurdly cute... almost always.

These days, the time when his cuteness wears thin is between about 10pm and 7am, when he uses a special form of torture he has developed especially for me. It's called, Wake Mom Up Every Hour torture. Seriously, I am tired deep down inside my soul these days. Ok, it's not as bad as it was the first 12 weeks of his life, but still, after living for a few months of pretty good sleep, the last 5 weeks have just beaten me down. I am a broken woman.

Anyway - he's still pretty darn cute.

7 months old today!

I cannot believe our little baby boy is 7 months old today!!!!!! He is changing every single day and it's amazing to witness. He's a little personality and I can't wait to continue to get to know who our little Owen is.

This isn't his 7 month picture, but one Grandma Connie took last week. He'll have to have a 7 month + 1 day photo as Mom forgot to take one today (busy day) and baby is now asleep. Owen had SUCH a great time with Grandma Connie, Uncle Michael, Friend Chris and Dad in the past 10 days! He was overwhelmed by all the love and cuddles. It was very sad saying goodbye - especially to Dad last night - but he can't wait to see everyone again.

Owen is loving the pool these days. Check this hysterical video out of him going crazy splashing everywhere. Adorable!!!!! Jason and I were cracking up!

In the meantime, we'll be hanging out in NJ spending as much time with Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Gwen, Cousin Matthew and everyone here! We don't get to see Grandma as much as we want as she is in the hospital again and it's not a very baby-friendly place to be in. Please everyone keep Grandma in your prayers!

First 4th of July

Non eventful - that's how Owen's first 4th of July was! We went to see Grandma in the rehab center and went into the pool with Grandpa. Now I'm eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to celebrate our nation's birthday. Haha - maybe next year we can go to a bbq??? I am just hoping the big party next door and the evening's fireworks don't wake up our little man! Fingers crossed!

We are excited to see our other Grandma and Uncle Michael tomorrow! And then... Dad next weekend!!!!!

Happy 4th of July everyone!
