|theotherhand||10:28 pm - Owen Update|
Owen's birthday was the 9th of September and I *finally* got the pictures back!
(pictures behind the cut, breast one may bot be work friendly)
You can't tell in the picture, but that's an orange filled with orange sorbet that I made from the inspiration in my mother-in-laws cookbook. Owen had tried oranges earlier in the day, but the sorbet went down a bit better (and actually not as messy)
Owen now has 6 teeth, his eyes are greenish blue depending on when and how you look at them, and we haven't quite figured out the hair yet but it seems between my husband and mine. He weighed 22 pounds, 9 ounces just before his birthday, and we measured him with a tape measurer and he came to just over 29 inches each time which really surprised me (he has never been measured by the health vistor).
He's running around and getting into everything, loves doing stairs (we don't have stairs in our place, but he found them at his grandparents and now wants to climb them EVERYWHERE) and really enjoys his new playgroup. He also loves swimming and running around the library.
The only word he says is 'Yeah', though he once screamed 'DADDDDEEEEEE' when my husband turned off the radio. It was quite cute, funny, and surprising. He says mamemamemame at me sometimes which is quite cute. He also seems to say 'Huh?' but we're not sure if he is saying the actual word, or making a confused sound effect that sounds like it.
He loves the bath, and HATES having nappies and clothes taken on or off with a passion. Anything that stops the chaos I guess, hehe.
He's enjoyed pretty much any food we have given him, barring bell peppers and mushy bananas. His current love is grapes and had a brief love affair with blackberries but after the mess he made all over himself (somehow he got pretty much all over him, including his bits, covered in blackberry juice), we have confined those to meal times (along with plenty of wipes). He loves pasta bolognese, adores my homebaked goodies, and enjoys eating peaches almost whole.
We loves cups, and wont drink with a beaker cup, but he has been pretty good so far as long as he is kept a close eye on (though he also likes using them as toys).
That's it for now.

Really late reply, I know... :)
Hooooooray! I'm so glad to see another mama still nursing!
My son turned 1 on September 8th. He's like Owen - loooooves to eat. :)
Re: Really late reply, I know... :)
It's alright, late replies are still good ^_^
Owen *loves* food...I'm not allowed to close the fridge door without bringing him a piece of fruit or I get shrieks from the baby gate. And woa be to us if we have a meal with him still awake as he must have everything.
