My little man
We got together on Monday for my good friend Sarah’s 30th birthday. It was just Sarah, my sisters and I, Melissa and Mari. Altogether 14 kids and me and Melissa are both pregnant and not everyone came so there would have been more kids.
Just 6 years ago there was no kids around and now we all have these amazing little people. I love it and I love that there’s still more kids to come.
Sarah took this picture of Owen, why does he look like he’s 5 years old!
He looks like such a big guy, which makes me a little sad cause I want him to stay my baby forever. But it’s also exciting seeing my baby grow into his new role as big brother.
You can grow up Owen, just please still give Mommy random nose kisses and grab me by my neck squeezing me saying “I love you Mommy” , ok

Dinosaur sandwiches is how we do it here, he always bites the heads off first.
I have to say again, I love our little place! All the natural light we get now is awesome, plus we have our own washer and dryer again. Having to use a laundry room kinda sucks, especially when you cloth diaper.
I’m also so happy that Owen really loves the place to. He keeps saying randomly, ” I like new house” and when we went to the old apartment last night to clean. He was seriously crying and screaming as soon as we pulled up, Nooooo go new house, go new house!
I had to explain to him that we just had to clean, then we could go home.
God has blessed us and I am grateful.
I feel like I’ve been non stop since Friday, cleaning and packing and unpacking and rearranging. Mixed in with birthday celebrations, mine and family and friends. Today is our first day with no real plans. Of course there is still two boxes left to unpack. Then I need to find a place for everything that’s unpacked already but still isn’t put away and then comes the decorating.
I really love our new house! It’s not huge but it’s cute and just right for us and it is bigger then our apartment was.
So now I’m going to relax a bit longer and then back to getting this house in order.
I love looking back at old photos.
Me and my long haired little O on a boat in the Newport Harbor.
Today is all about packing and cleaning. Owen woke up this morning, went straight to the pile of boxes in our living room and said ” Ok Mommy, lets do this!
I told him how about we get you some breakfast first, then you can help Mommy.
He’s such a god little helper, now I need to get off the computer so we can start packing.
I’m 29 weeks now, he’s almost here!!
We still have allot to do and still need to get some stuff.
We have made some purchases for stuff we need, but my favorites are the random stuff we bought that maybe we didn’t really need.
I bought this in September, before he was even here. But I had to have it and maybe I somehow knew we would be having another boy.
This bib, cause it was just cute.
We’re using prefolds for the first few months and we already bought simple, cheaper covers. But this was cute, and it can be used with the GroVia system or as just a cover for prefolds and I got it for half off. So I didn’t really need it but it was justified.
The latest purchase just for him
So we have a name.
I know I said we couldn’t decide but we have, we did, it’s done.
I found this vintage book page just shortly after we decided. They also had an O so I had to get them.
His name will start with an E, it’s lovely I think and that’s all you get for now.
It would be kinda cool if you vote for us
Me and O have this game we play, where he tells me everything he like’s.
I’ll say hmm lets see what do you like, How about….
and he’ll say, how bout…. snake’s, how bout pirates, how bout yo gabba.
The game goes on and on and he comes up with everything, today we were going to the beach so he kept bringing the beach up. Then somewhere in there he randomly said, How bout Coffee! I started busting up, because um, you’re 2 Owen, you like coffee?! Though he does sneak a few sips every once in a while. So of course he kept saying it and busting up and I would laugh along with him. `
So anyways, today we went to the beach.
The kid loves the water, like really loves it!
He played in the water
Tried to make sand castles with Dad, but really just kept knocking it down
We buried him in the sand
My feet have almost disappeared
We searched for “pirate treasure”, but really sea shells and beach glass
That was our day, it was fun.
