You know you have a boy when....

OK so Owen does not crawl yet, but hey who cares, I got one that is better..he will fart on command! I was cracking up today..I had him on the floor and I was rolling him around. I then looked at him and said go ummmmm and pooot (of course I was making noises not saying um and poot). He would look at me and push and fart. It was so funny I tried it again..he looked at me pushed and farted again..we both squealed in delight..ha!! Then I thought, maybe this is not real and it is coincidence??? Let me try this one more goes. "Owen go ummmmm and poot!" I said. He looked at me smiled really shy like and pushed and farted. I picked him up and hugged him and told him he was such a great boy...

I am slacking

I am seriously slacking on this thing. My hard drive on my computer took a I am working on a borrowed hard drive so I can not download my photos on it. Soooo...I am patiently awaiting a new hard drive to come in the mail.

Anyway, What has been going on in our lives. Owen is sick and on an antibiotic. He has a sinus infection. Poor little guy. Wes and I have also been snotty and sick. So were not going to visit my grandma once again. I hope she does not think we are blowing her off because I am not. It just seems like every visit we plan something comes up with baby.

Owen is going to stay at Tara's house until he gets into Growing Kids. Where we are currently on the pending list. It looks like it will be a nice place to put him. I am looking forward to it. I think he will have fun. More than likely be exhausted when we get him home. It will give me a place to take him on Fridays if I need a break and want to take a nice hot!!!! What is a nice hot bath????? What is a good book???? What is a life that does not revolve around paying bills, cleaning up after the dog, cleaning the house, doing laundry and caring for the baby????? Not that I am complaining though I do love every minute of it!!!! Especially the caring for baby. Unbelievable that he is 7 months already. Wow!! He is pulling himself up using my shirt. Still no desire to crawl or even attempt to. He really likes to roll. He is so quick to laugh and smile at people. And people just love him and can not keep their hands off him. Today a big biker guy was talking all baby talk to him. It was so cute.

I have been pretty tired lately. It was nice to nap with Owen today. We cuddled up for both the morning and afternoon naps. He is such a little love bug.

Will post more pictures when I get my hard drive.

Whats New??

Owen kept a beat last week at music class. It was so cute. He hit the drum three times in a row after the music teacher stopped singing. And he did that three times in a row.

He is starting to clap his hands together.
Then last Sat. we went to Yoga class. It was so much fun. We also ran into Lisa and Marcus from our prenatal classes. We went and had a coffee with them. I am going to email her this week to chit chat for a while. Lucas her little one is one day younger than Owen.

Also last Friday we went and got some Indian food and it was SOOOOO good!!

So far my week has been ok. Today it was decided that Owen will not go to Tara's any more. So starting next week we will be taking him to Goshen to Heather and Nates. GO HEATHER for real. She is volunteering to watch Owen and she has Max who was born on the same day as Owen. WOW!!! You go girl!! I asked her over and over and over if she was sure. I think he will have a lot of fun rolling around with Max. We will have double the drive though..boy oh boy..lots of getting use to the car. I will miss my mornings with Owen, since daddy will be the one to drop him off so I can get to work by 7 am. But it should all work out, it always does. It will be short term until we can get him in a daycare. I am kinda hoping to get him into La Petite in South Bend. At least he would be close and I could go and hang out with him. Or Growing Kids here off of Bristol St. would be super nice too. Even if I do get a transfer, which I really hope I will be getting. Perhaps if not then I can trade Maggie at work and go down to three days a week.

I have to admit I have been pretty stressed about Owen going somewhere new. Just trying to find a place..OMG!!! Everywhere I called there are waiting lists. I am not done making calls though. I am bound and determined to find something. (Note I think it will be great for him to be with Heather, but she is clear on the other side of Goshen..once again lots of driving. But I am very thankful that she is going to help me out until I can find something thanks again Heather..if you read this...LOL). I can tell Owen is feeling my stress too because he kept jerking awake from his sleep when I put him down tonight..and the last time he did that was when I fell and was completely freaked out all day about it. He is a very sensitive boy!!! But that is what makes him so sweet too.

I have a nasty cold sore and can not wait for it to go away. It is a small one right in the crack of my lip..and it hurts like CRAZY. Not to mention I do not like having them because I have to resist giving my baby boy lots of hooo...and I know he needs them..what baby doesn't.

Also found out that Sara Smith is moving back to this area with her new hubby sometime next summer..wooo hooo. I am so excited about that. I seriously thought I was gonna pee my pants..hahahaa. Now she just needs to have some

OK enough I have to get up early and drag myself around, still getting use to being back on early shift.

Sick Boy AGAIN!!

Well we just get Owen started on some solid foods and he gets sick and refuses to do anything but nurse. Poor baby boy. He has got the snot nose and cough back. Stacy says Kevin has it too and so does Maddi. It seems to be circling around again.

Well I am putting in for a hardship move to Elkhart office. I know that they are not going to think my excuses are a hardship (they mostly pertain to Owen) but at least it will be on paper in the HR department that I want to move to the Elkhart office. That way if there is an opening then hopefully they will consider me first. It truly would make my life a whole lot easier. I know it was my choice to move to Elkhart and my choice to have a baby...but it is truly sad that our government does not hold our children high on priority lists. A mother should be close to her child even if she can not be with them all the time. The bottom line is, if I have to choose between Owen and working there I will start looking for another job. One that is closer to home. Or I will see if I can go down to three days a week. It is silly that they would not transfer me though..since there is someone in Elkhart who wants to come here. Babysteps I just need to remember that.

Tara said Owen has said ma ma. I have not heard it but Wes has sorta heard it. How cute. I wish I was the one who got to hear it first...but that is what happens when your at miss things. He is still just rolling over like crazy. He is not ready to crawl yet. One day he will just realize that is what those knees are for and off he will go like a rocket..I can see it now.

Not too much else going on.

More later..I will try to get better at this too!!
