My little goof

As Owen grows up his goofiness is coming out more and more and I just love it. Every new stage brings new challenges but it just seems to be getting more and more fun. He keeps me laughing constantly throughout the day. I thought I'd share a little of his humor and sweetness in some pictures. Here he is :)

He has started a great love for coloring- and playing with the crayons in general. He asks at least once a day to get up on the table to color. He does pretty good about keeping it on the paper and will really concentrate for a good amount of time. He just loves it.

His new favorite thing to do while I do laundry is to sit on our bed and play with the fan. It works out great for both of us- and I think he is just so silly sitting there laughing as he turns it on and off and he gets blown in the face.
He loves, loves, loves to read. I will ask him to get a book and he will just about pull every book off the shelf and hand them to me one by one. He loves to cuddle up as close as he can next to me. He can't hardly sit on my lap comfortably but he loves tucking himself in right under my arm. He is turning into a very sweet cuddle bug.
I purposely have chosen to avoid the spoon and bowl thing mainly because I didn't want to have to clean up a bowl full of yogurt or applesauce off the floor when he decided to throw it. However, he stayed with our neighbors and when we went to pick him up he was happily eating yogurt with spoon and bowl- so I decided we should begin that too. Here's a little snippet of our time :).

So this year for Halloween we took Owen trick or treating at the Town Square. All the businesses give out candy from like 4-7 pm and the place was pretty packed. It seems like it is just the town thing to do- and I mean, why not? We didn't have to worry really about the candy being bad or anything. Owen was a turtle and I dressed up as pregnant and Matt well, was Matt. We met Tiffany there and a couple from church with their 20 month old daughter and had a lot of fun! Matt dressed up the day before as a flamingo for work. It was the funniest thing and I was so proud of him for proudly sporting the flamingo. The theme for his work was "Jackson wildlife" so we thought the flamingo worked because of all the yard flamingos you see everywhere :). Yes, he really wore that outfit ALL day! I'm just so proud!!

Owen was really proud of his daddy too!
