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

Christmas 2017

Dear Owen,

You got to go see Santa this year and we wrote a letter to him asking what you wanted…monster trucks!  You had a great Christmas and got tons of monster trucks and garbage trucks.  We had a great time with family!

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

2 years old!

Dear Owen,

You turned two years old, and I can’t believe how fast you are growing up!  We spent the day by going to get dunkin donuts and then the ball factory and Olive Garden for lunch.  Then we had cake and presents.  

You also had a combined birthday with Blake a few weeks ago.  We had a lot of people here to celebrate you both and we even had a bounce house!  

We love you very much,

Mama

Disney!

Dear Owen,

 We just got back from an awesome vacation to Disney World!  This is the first time you have been there. We drove with Papa and Gigi just like I used to do when I was a little girl.  We brought a lot of things in the car for you to play with like DVD players and of course a Magna doodle.  We also brought walkie talkies so that we can talk to Papa and Gigi in the other car.

First we went to Jacksonville Beach to Auntie Christine and Uncle Bryan’s house.  We stayed there for a day and when in the pool and the beach and then we all drove to Disney World together.  We stayed at Port Orleans Riverside which is our favorite place to stay.  One day TT and Uncle Colin came and surprised Auntie Christine and Uncle Bryan and they got to see Rory for the first time. We went in all of the parks and you enjoyed all the rides.  I think your favorite was the Dumbo ride since you love Dumbo!  It was so fun to show you all of the things that we do when we go to Disney and to see you enjoy it as well.  I cannot wait to take you back again someday!

Love,

Mama

New cousin!

Dear Owen,

A few days ago you got a new cousin!  Cousin Rory Joseph, born to TT and Uncle Colin.  On Easter you got to meet him for the first time.  You had just woken up from a nap and were being a bit shy but I know you will have so much fun with him in the near future!  I can’t wait for you and Blake to grow up with a cousin and play with him and have him as your friend!  It will be so fun to watch you all be together!  It was such a great moment!

Love,

Mama
