Owen: Age 5

{Yes, I left his blankie in the shot on purpose.}

My little buddy is a whole hand today.

It's been five years since Owen took his sweet, sweet time to make a pretty wild entrance into the world. It's been five years of sneaking into our bedroom and snuggling as close as his body allows. Five years of defending ourselves from his constant energy {and sword/gun/light saber attacks}. Five years of urgently demanding chocolate milk, watching his brother's every move, and trying to hold back tears when he's overcome with any emotion.

Owen was delivered in a flash in the middle of the night and turned our world upside down with his first brown-eyed blink. He is sharp as a tack, he is sensitive, and he is a mess. But he's mine and I love him to pieces. I can't believe he's five years old. Also, I can't believe he stopped long enough to answer the following 20 questions. In honor of Owen's special day, read on for the Age Five version of his annual birthday interview:
