Lub Lub Da Baby Chubb!

Sweet baby Owen, *sigh*, I just LOVE this boy!  Owen had his 4 month checkup the other day, and MY, how this boy is growing!  He clocked in at 15 pounds 7 oz and 26 and 3/4 inches long, BIG boy!  That's 75th percentile for weight and 97th percentile for height!!  Quite the change from his 2 month checkup where he was 50th percentile for height (still 75th for weight).  And I can't get over how FAST this time has gone by.  The other night I bought his first box of rice cereal!  We will be giving him his first trial run tonight for our FHE activity :)

Just look at those chubby little cheekers, so cute!
 Hey smiley guy!
 His happiness is infectious, I can't stay upset for long when he flashes me a big grin.
 Busted!  Sucking his thumb....well, any fingers he can find really.
 Chillin at the park with mom and big sister.
 Mornings are my favorite...most of the time.  Owen has been getting up sooo early these last few days.  6am or so.  Mostly because it's light at around 5:30 or so, and he thinks the day is ready to begin!
 One day I will forget how tiny his feet were, so I snapped a bunch of photo's the other day, to remember.
 Love these little feet.
We love our little guy so much!  It's been wonderful to watch him grow, I had forgotten how much joy it brings to watch your infant reach new milestones, such happines to know you were able to create life and now you help to nourish such a small spirit.

I loved having a thumb-sucker. Scotty was able to self-comfort. And he gave it up when he turned around four, so no teeth-ruining.

With Emily, she was always "hooked up" when she needed comfort. Honestly, it was easier in spite of the time I spent nursing. (ha ha, TMI!!!)
