Dear Owen,

We are on the way to Wisconsin Dells!  This is my first time going and yours too.  You and Blake are playing in the back seat and having fun.  We will be there soon and we’re going to a water park and indoor theme park!  

It’s been a while since I wrote to you ,but you are doing so many tho he now it’s hard to keep track of.  You can say so many words now and are even talking in short sentences.  You know almost all your shapes and colors and can even recognize and say a good amount of letters and numbers.  You can go up and down stairs by yourself.  You are really growing up so fast and changing so much.  I love you and can’t wait to have fun on our trip!

Love,

Mama

Our New House

Dear Owen,

We are finally moved in!  We have a new house!  It’s been a crazy couple of days but we did it!  We moved in before Christmas and even hosted Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!  I am so happy to see you love your new house and to see you so happy when you got all your toys back from the boxes.   

Love,

Mama

New house

Dear Owen,

In one week we will be in our new house!  It feels like forever we have been waiting for this.  Only a few days left.  We have been out of our old house since April and have been building a new house.  Finally, the day is coming soon!  You will have your old crib back and all your toys.  We have been driving by almost every day to look at it and see what new thing they have done to it.  I can’t wait to move in, in a few days and start our life in our new, forever home.  This will be the house that you will grow up in and I can assure you, we are never moving again!  I can’t wait to show you our brand new house and all the wonderful things that you will discover there!

Love,

Mama

17 months

Dear Owen,

Today you are 17 months!  You now love watching this show called Peppa Pig.  Blake discovered it and now you both love to watch it.  When it comes on you make the oinking noise like Peppa!  Dadda also taught you all the animal noises, so you can say the cow sound, the owl sound, the chicken sound, the pig sound, and others.

I can’t wait to see what you can do next!

Love,

Mama

16 months

Dear Owen,

You are 16 months old and you are able to do so many things!  You can say so many words now, every day I feel like you are learning and saying a new word!  You can say over 20 words and every day are learning a new one!  You can also point to and recognize many other words if we say them.  Yesterday you even put together your first small sentence.  We walked up the stairs where there always are shoes sitting and I had put them away and you noticed they were gone and you pointed and said “Shoes done!”  Such a smarty pants!

We also celebrated Halloween yesterday and you made the cutest Mickey Mouse!  It was so cute watching you walk around outside with your little Mickey Mouse ears flapping in the wind.  Adorable.

Love,

Mama

Mini vacation

Dear Owen,

This summer we went on a mini vacation to lake geneva and stayed at a place called timber ridge.  There was a water park inside the hotel!  It was such a fun place to spend as a family!   There was an arcade and a theater room where there was also crafts and bingo during the day.   We swam a lot and you were going down the kiddie slides on our laps and even with Blake! It was a perfect place to take you! 

Love, 

Mama

Walking!

Dear Owen,

You are officially walking!  You started a while back taking a few steps and then grabbing on to something but the other day you started officially walking on your own!  I’m so proud of you and it’s so cute to see how hard you try and you get so happy when you make it to where you are going.  I love you very much!

Love,

Mama
