Owen: Weeks 44 & 45
Now that you can sit up so well on your own, mommy can sit you safely on the hard floor and not worry so much that you will bang your head. I have a rummage cupboard for you to play in that I had made for Cody when he was small. That way you stay out of the other cupboards! It's working for now but I am sure that as soon as you start to crawl or walk it won't interest you to just stay in that cupboard. You like to pull everything out, bang things together and open and close the doors. It's fascinating work! You are accepting bigger lumps in your food now and Mommy is also able to give you finger foods that you gum around in your mouth! It's very funny to watch and you are learning quickly to eat pancakes, fruit, cheerios, rice, carrots, peas etc in bigger pieces. Mommy will be very happy when we can all eat the same foods and baby food isn't such a task. The weather has warmed up enough that we had the opportunity to plant a small garden. Beacause you two are so little yet, I can't plant a big garden. With all the weeds it is just too time consuming and difficult with you guys. Next year might work better and I hope to plant a garden closer to the house anyway. Really at this point you are really only just able to sit in the wagon and watch. But you are happy doing that. Cody has his own shovel and he helped with the digging for the potatoes. He also covered Max the dog in dirt. During the end of your 44th week, we celebrated your 10 month birthday! You have changed in size, shape and abilities so much. You are a smiley one so it's usually very easy to get a smile for the pictures. You are a happy little guy. You are working on your fifth tooth and I think the sixth is coming too. You are drooling like a tap! Poor little guy. You also have your first ear infection. Sito first noticed that you were not feeling good, and before long your ear was very sore. This is the first one I have had to deal with too. I took you to the doctor, and within a few days you were feeling much better! Your 45th week is your last week at home full time with Mommy. After this you and Cody will be going to the daycare. Mommy is nervous. But I am sure you will be just fine. It's sad too that the time has gone by so fast. I enjoyed my time at home much more this time around. Must be because it is so active around here, and we did so much together. You have been such a good good baby.
