Months Fly By

This is Baby Owen. Ten months ago, I first saw his ten little fingers and ten little toes. In this picture, he looks like a baby, sweetly snoozing with his blanky grasped firmly; however, that word "baby" is starting to fade. It's amazing how much he has grown in the past 10 months - heck, the past two weeks! He's crawling with lightning speed, eating every grown-up food we offer, and pulling up (gasp!) on everything from the coffee table to the crib. He understands me even though he can't talk, and he loves his family deeply. It seems my smallest is only a toddle away from a new category of youth.

Although it's bittersweet to watch your babies grow, I'm excited. I'm anxious to hear Owen's first words, let go as he takes his first steps, and spy on the adventures he and Nathan create. I want to know his favorite things and find out if he'll be as mischievous as he seems.

That being said, I'm in no rush. For as long as I can, I'll keep handing him his blanky, pulling him into my lap, and singing, straight into those dark brown eyes. Happy ten months to Baby Owen and happy Tuesday to you!
