Owen Henry — 10 Months Old (posted 2 weeks late!)
Owen is such a sweet–natured, loveable boy. He is still cheeky and loves cuddles.
Owen has found his voice. He calls out, squeals and babbles. In underground car park, he hollers back and forth with Eva to hear his voice echo and loves to hear his hoots magnified through the microphone on Eva’s toy piano.
Eva and Owen’s relationship is growing. It’s so rewarding to watch. While Eva isn’t the maternal, dotting older sister, she treats him like a playmate—someone to chase her, blow raspberries at each other, and get admonished with together. They have already teamed up against Johnny and me erupting into giggles when the “get in trouble”.
He also now says “da da da da” for Johnny.
He is still a daddy’s boy and tries to stall Johnny in the mornings as he leaves for work—reaching, pointing, demanding extra cuddles and crawling into his lap as he ties his shoes.
He will crawl into our lap to read a book. He will request certain books over again by pointing or simply throwing any new book you try to read aside. His current favourite is Moo, Baa, La La La. He will now repeat and imitate some of the sounds.
Owen is also such a social little boy. He waves at “strangers” and is constantly smiling. He loves going to his baby stories and rhyme time at our local library and interacting with the other babies.
He is such a strong little boy — stronger than Eva was at the same age. He can now pull up, stand up, walk around furniture, walk while holding his hands. Although, he still prefers to crawl, and we’re in no hurry to force him.
Knowing from experience, they grow up so fast, and I am just trying to enjoy every minute that I can.

Poor little guy. Owen had been fighting a high fever over the past weekend and then a rash appeared all over his trunk yesterday — tell tale signs of Roseola. This morning it has cleared up and he’s back to his normal active self — ripping up toilet paper, pushing and throwing things off his highchair tray, and trying to drink my cup of coffee!
A big thank you to all those who purchased items from our little Goodsie store — http://evaandowen.goodsie.com/ Although it was hard letting go of some favourites, it’s nice to know they have gone to good home! Ha! :)
There were obviously some super popular items as I had a number of emails regarding sold out pieces, as well as some disappointment that I didn’t provide international shipping. Honestly, I would have loved to have, but it’s just too expensive. Even offering $9 flat rate shipping within Australia, I lost money. The average package I sent cost $13.40, a few a little more and some a little less. But, it’s part of the deal and I was willing to eat the money.
At this point, the store will only be open for 3 more days and there are still some lovely clothes and accessories left. Therefore, I’m having a stock clearance sale — Free Shipping (Australia Only, Min. Purchase $20) using to PROMO CODE: HOORAY
HAPPINESS IS EVA
