Update on both kids

Right now my life revolves around my kids.  With Kaylee at 2 years old and Owen at 6 months old, time is flying by.

Kaylee is now potty trained.  It is so nice to be done with diapers for one child.  She is talking and putting 2-3 words together to make sentences.  Just today she said, “Car all wet.”  It rained out today and her Cozy Coupe Car that was outside was all wet.  Yesterday I took her along with me while I went shopping and I asked her if she wanted to go.  So she told Paul, “shopping.”  Then the whole way there, that’s all she said over and over again, “shopping, shopping, shopping.”

Owen is sitting up.  He loves to put things in his mouth.  He is not rolling over.  I try to do as much tummy time as I can but within 30 seconds of him on the floor on his tummy he is screaming bloody murder.  So we try several times a day.  Owen is eating like crazy.  He eats baby food and cereal and nurses.  After eating 4 tablespoons of baby food and 4 tablespoons of cereal and nursing about 5 ounces, then he seems to be full.  I can only imagine what our food bill will be as he gets older and eats table food…


Owen was born

Since we are updating our website I thought I would update about Owen being born.  It was fun to look back and see when Kaylee came into the world and when I would have been induced.  Owen was due on November 5, 2010 and decided to enter the world on October 31, 2011.  He weighed 8 pounds 12 ounces and was 19 1/2 inches long.  This labor was considerably shorter than the labor I had with Kaylee.  It was amazing how quickly everything went since Kaylee was 10 days late and I labored for 33 hours.  My water broke at 5:30pm and Owen was born at 8:30am the next morning.  Some similarities are neat to think about.  With both kids, my water broke on a Saturday evening around 4-5pm.
