Owen is such a happy baby. Despite cutting two new teeth, jet lag and adjusting to a new time zone, this is what Owen looks like most of the time. I love that he’s such a smiley little boy!

Lately

Christmas is just around the corner and things are getting busy. We’re preparing for our trip to the States — packing, packing, packing. And have been trying to do a little Christmas shopping before we leave. 

Last week we celebrated the kids’ “half-birthdays”. With birthdays a day apart we will forever be celebrating them together. We bought both Eva and Owen little gifts — a lovely bamboo dinner set, a new favourite red skirt and a book. It was just another day for Owen, but Eva of course took delight in telling everyone who would listen that she is now three-and-a-half. That half is a big deal. 

Just a Trim

A couple of days ago, Eva had her first hair cut. Ever. For three and a half years Eva had never had her hair cut or even trimmed.

After much talk and preparation I convinced Eva come with me to the salon. We had our hair cut together, although Eva’s was more like about a half-inch trim. Little steps. 

Owen Henry — 6 Months Old

Owen seems so much more agile and stronger than Eva was at the same age. He reaches out for us to be picked up. And if he sees something he really wants, he launches himself at it. He can mostly stay sitting up on his own, with the occasional tumble. He is trying to crawl. Trying like anything to crawl. He will get up on his hands and knees and rock back and forth. I think he will be tearing around the floors by Christmas.

More than anything, I can’t quite convey just how sweet this little boy is — he’s constantly smiling. He has the most beautiful, sweet and somewhat adventuresome temperament. We just love him so. 

Favourite toys: Music box with two spinning wibble-wobble bees, anything he can chew on (but particularly Bullseye from Toy Story).

Favourite foods: He has two teeth now—the lower ones—and he loves to use them. His favourites so far are apple, rock melon, roasted pumpkin, peach.

Loves: his sister, baths, peekaboo, being sung to and danced with, being included and involved.

Hates: the carseat, putting on shirts
