My boys.

I love my boys....so much!


This little man is walking everywhere & at times practically running...keeping us on our toes!
 We've had a couple of "little" snows in the last month. Owen wasn't quite sure what to make of the snow, so he decided to see if it was edible!

 Owen has finally adapted to sitting in the "big tub" for his baths. We kept him in the baby tub for so long because he only wanted to stand up when we put him outside of it. He loves "big boy baths" now.
 Owen has new "big boy" shoes. He's looking pretty sharp!
 Owen loves mommy's stethoscope...practicing to be a nurse already!
 Love my little man!
 Owen's favorite thing to do-read! He carries books all around the house & hands them to me saying "booook, reeee" (book, read). We read so much & I love how he enjoys reading.

Valentine treats.

I took some time to make some fun Valentine treats last week, all Pinterest inspired.
I took no pictures of my treats, so had to share these pictures instead...

Valentine cards for Grammy & Grampy and Grandma & Papa...I wrote "Blowing Kisses your Way on this Valentine's Day" on the inside of the handprint.

Strawberry Valentine wafers for my wonderful co-workers

And, "I'm hooked on you" Goldfish Valentine's for Owen's classmates at school.

Yesterday was Valentine's Day. I counted that it was the 11th Valentine's Day I've celebrated with Chris.

Unfortunately, he was not feeling well & Owen wasn't either so it was not a typical Valentine's Day. However, I am so thankful that I feel loved everyday not just on this one day of the year.

I have been thinking so much this week about the love of Christ. I am so thankful for the ultimate example of love that Christ showed to each of us & for the character of his love that...
What amazing love!

1 year stats.

It's been a very hectic few weeks around here with Chris being sick 2 times in 3 weeks & Owen now having an ear infection. So, I'm just getting around to posting the run-down from Owen's 1 year check-up.

Height: 31 inches (75%)
Weight: 22 lbs. & 5 oz. (60%)

Dr. Rauth was impressed by all of Owen's words/sounds & his mobility. He could hardly stop moving around the room long enough for her to examine him!

So thankful for a happy, healthy little man!
