Owen Henry — 9 Months Old
Five words to describe Owen — happy, cuddly, active, loving, curious.
Owen is at what I call the puppy dog stage, and Eva is taking full advantage. She calls out his name and he chases her around the room. She rolls a ball across the room for him to fetch. She even pats his head occasionally. I think Eva really needs a pet.
Owen loves to be a part of things. If he hears voices in a different part of the house, he has to be there too. He is so curious about everything, but especially about how things work and move. He loves his locks puzzle and anything with a hinge. He started playing with chunky wooden puzzles and worked out how to correctly match the pieces!
He has discovered books and will crawl in our laps to be read to. His favourites are Dear Zoo, Baby Loves Peekaboo, and Where’s Baby’s Belly Button.
Another favourite pastime is standing under the dining room table and moving from chair to chair. The poor little guy has banged his head so many times on the underside of the table that he now understands “Watch your head” and will duck if we say it.
He is becoming much more communicative and interactive. He has started shaking his head for “no”—although it is really move a whole upper body shake than a head shake. He has also started clapping and waving.
He loves music and dancing. Right now his favourites are Jinja Safari’s “Errol Flynn” and Vance Joy’s “Riptide”.
Owen loves being outside, exploring the grass, putting leaves in his mouth, He is fascinating by any animal. He is not scared of dogs and squirms in our arms whenever he sees one until we take him in for a closer look.
Now, at 9 and a half months old, Owen is just a hop, skip and a jump away from his first birthday!
It’s that time again! I’m in the process of putting together a Goodsie store to sell a bunch of Eva and Owen’s used clothes. Since we’re not planning on having any more children, I thought it was time to spring clean their closets. There are many beautiful pieces and quality brands — Country Road, Seed Heritage, Gap, Mini-Boden, Crew Cuts (J.Crew), Zara, Janie and Jack, Saltwater Sandals, and a gorgeous pair of unused Freshly Picked moccasins!
At this stage, I’m hoping to have the site up and ready tomorrow night!
Four years later.
A couple of days ago, this little blog of mine turned four years old. It’s crazy to think that I’ve been blogging for that amount of time and also that this little page on the internet has been such a big part of my life. And although it has evolved over this time, some months I have more time and creative energy to invest and other times I’ve struggled to share and write posts, but what has always remained the central focus of this blog has been to document and capture those little moments and memories of my children’s childhood. This is their modern day baby book.
HAPPINESS IS EVA
