Today is Owen's 2ND birthday! I can't believe it's been 2 years since he stole our hearts! I remember waking up the day he was scheduled to be born.... I was so excited, but so scared because I had no clue what to expect. We went into the hospital at 6am and were admitted into the surgery recovery room. We waited there while the nurses took my vitals and Owen's vitals. At about 7:45am I walked into the operating room... the anesthesiologist did his work and I was prepped and ready for surgery at 8am. Derek didn't walk in until Owen was just about to be born... Owen made his appearance at 8:06 am, weighing a whopping 9 pounds 5 ounces and measuring 19 1/4 inches long. He was everything we hoped for and dreamed of and he exceeds everything we could have imagined still!!!
Owen has always been ahead of the game... I'm not saying it because he's my son, but he's one smart cookie! He was rolling around the house at 4 months, crawling at 6 months, cruising at 7 months and walking at 8 1/2 months! I thought he would be late talker because he excelled in the physical development, but no! He has been talking like crazy for over a year now... he says shorter sentences and is soaking in everything his little mind can! He loves to go on walks, go fishing at the river, ride his bike, play basketball, and watch "shows" (Backyardigans, My Friends Tigger & Pooh, Finding Nemo, Madagascar and his new favorite Cars) I love watching him learn and grow each day and I can't wait to see what is to come for my little dude!!!
We love you so much Owen!!!
Love, Daddy and Mommy
