Owen: Weeks 43 & 44

At the end of your 42nd week (9 and 1/2 months) we had a special mothers day! We went to Grandma Barbs house where all of her kids and grandkids got together. It was a hot day and a beautiful one. We dressed you up in western wear and you and Cody were (still are) the cutest cowboys in the world! We were able to take some beautiful pictures of you boys. Grandpa Norm has old tractors and buildings and made nice settings for the pictures. Shortly after the nice visit and weekend Daddy had to get ready to go to work. Funny thing is that mommy was actually going to go to work early and daddy was going to be a stay at home dad! But that must have scared him because he decided to go to work instead. No, as it turned out it made more sense for him to go. Sad to see him go though and he was very sad to leave. He spent so much time with Cody outside, and the early mornings with you so mommy could sleep in. You get up early!!! I know daddy can't wait for you to be old enough to go out to the shop and dig in the tools too! We have gotten to a point that we know we can't take you on long drives! You just do not do well. The 2 hour drive there, followed later by the 2 hour drive home was just too much on mothers day. You cried all the way home and it made for a very long drive. We decided that it is certainly time to turn your car seat around to face forward. We think the fact that you can't see us or really anything is what makes riding in that seat so crappy for you. In fact, I think it was the day after that we were driving to the lake lot and Daddy had enough. He pulled over and switched your seat around! You were much happier. And the seat has stayed that way ever since.
