Fun Moments October 22, 2013

I figured since yesterday’s blog was a bit on the serious side, I would post a little lighter hearted one today.  Owen is officially two weeks old today, so as you can imagine we’re still tackling a lot of “firsts”. This last week, Owen had his first bath in the big tub. He didn’t enjoy the experience, but the funny thing was to see how our dog, Toby, reacted to Owen in the tub. Because Owen was upset, Toby started to bark at us like were attacking his baby. It was sweet to see how Toby is already protective of our little man.

Last Friday, Jeremy and I carved pumpkins. It’s a long standing tradition in our home and one that I love.  Jeremy always gags while cleaning out the inside of the pumpkin and to me, that’s my favorite part of the carving experience. I really enjoy the squishy insides between my fingers. Weird, I know. I’m not the best pumpkin carver to begin with, but I did wonder if it was smart to give the sleep deprived woman a knife. No worries, I still have my fingers! Jeremy carved a pumpkin for Owen, so this year we have three pumpkins sitting outside instead of two.

Three Pumpkins!

On Saturday, my grandma came down to meet Owen. She has been nicknamed GG by my family up north because she is a great-grandma. It was great to spend some time with her. Owen was so content and warm in her arms that I know she didn’t want to give him up when it was time for us to go.

Owen made it to his first official church service on Sunday. He slept through the whole thing like a champ. The interesting part was trying to get from the sanctuary through the foyer to our office. It took us over a half hour with all the stops from our congregation members to admire him. Again, I am so blessed to be surrounded by the sweetest community. Owen has a great Bethel family cheering him on.

Jeremy and I are loving these many firsts and milestones. Another great milestone has only happened once, but one night Owen slept 4 hours! I can tell a huge difference between 3 hours and 4 hours. It was glorious! In fact, he has slept 3.5 hours a couple times now and that also feels really good! I’m sure we’ll have many more milestones and fun moments to share in the near future!
