New Cousin

Dear Owen,

You have a new cousin Abby born in February.  She got baptised on Sunday and Mama and Dada are her Godparents.  You got to go and see her get baptised and have a party after.  It was a great day for our family.  

Love,

Mama

Easter 2018

Dear Owen,

You guys had a great Easter!  The day before Easter we went to Lincoln Way to the annual bunny breakfast and egg hunt that they have every year. We got to eat breakfast, see the Easter Bunny, and do egg hunts.  Your favorite part was when you saw the Easter Bunny and afterward he gave you Mario Happy Meal toys which is something that you have been wanting.

On Easter we woke up and went downstairs and you guys found your eggs and your baskets from the Easter Bunny. You got a lot of monster trucks and different toys inside. Then we went to church with Papa and Gigi and then we went to T T and Uncle Colin’s house because they were hosting Easter. We ate lunch and then we got Easter baskets from Papa and Gigi!  We had a great Easter. 

Love,

 Mama

Monster Jam

Dear Owen,

We recently went to Monster Jam for the first time because you and Blake are very into monster trucks.  When we got there we stopped at the little shop and got you a monster truck car.  You wanted the legend of Grave Digger but they didn’t have that so you said okay I’ll take Soldier Fortune.  Then we went to our seats and we had to bring headphones to cover your ears because it was so loud. At first you didn’t want to wear them but then when the trucks came out you quickly learned that you should keep them on your ears. It was so cool to see all the cars come out and do different types of competitions and earn points and at the end there was one big winner.  We had so much fun and now ever since we’ve been you ask me every night if we are going to Monster Jam tomorrow.  We will go again buddy I promise.  

Love,

Mama

Potty training

Dear Owen,

We are officially potty training you!  You are doing really well and catching on. You have had a couple of accidents but you have also gone many times on the potty. Today was the first day that you went poo poo on the potty! I’m so proud of you that you did that. We will keep working on it and you will keep getting even better.

Love,

Mama

Halloween

Dear Owen,

This year on Halloween I ask you what you wanted to be and you said a garbage truck (just like Blake).  You even pointed to the picture online, so I bought you a costume but you wouldn’t be it.  You refused to wear it.  But you still had a good time going trick or treating and getting lots of candy!  Every time someone gave you candy, you wanted to eat it right away and take it out of your bucket.  You loved Halloween!

Love,

Mama

Big boy bed!

Dear Owen,

You started climbing out of your crib recently so we decided to switch your crib to a big boy bed!  You have been doing pretty well staying in your bed.  Sometimes you get up and come in our room and say “in Mama’s bed” but then we take you back to bed.  You are growing up so fast!

Love,

Mama
