Ramblings on a Friday Night

We are watching the Jazz/Nuggets game. Well, I'm not really watching. I'm blogging instead.
We just put Owen to bed and I'm fighting the urge to go get him and snuggle him while he sleeps. Instead, I'll just think about him and share a little bit about him.
He is super SMILEY. I love his smiles and I am dying to hear him giggle!
He is happiest in the morning (definitely doesn't get this from his dad, lol).
He is sleeping through the night! It's fabulous and gives me a new appreciation for sleep.
When the kid gets hungry he has very little patience...he wants his milk NOW
He's already a mama's boy and I LOVE it.
He burps, passes gas, and poops like a champ! He's such a boy.
Likes to hear his dad whistle (the Denneys are whistlers)
He's real good at spitting up all over me
He doesn't like laying on his tummy
He likes sucking on his fist or hand...they're starting to replace the Binky
He gets fixated on lights.
He's been to church twice and was surprisingly reverent.
He enjoys car rides, but only for about 10 minutes before he want to get out.
His hair is actually growing. We might be able to do some "styling" soon.
Likes to do tricks with his dad (aka balancing acts)
He's figured out the "fake cry"
But gets tears now when it's real.
Loves his swing.
Still loves bath time.
Did I mention he likes to smile??? I can't get enough of these...
I LOVE being a mom and I am SO glad I've decided to stay at home with Owen. I was considering going back to work part-time. But when it came down to it, I couldn't imagine leaving my lil' guy. I miss people though. I'm such a people person. It's kind of an adjustment from being around people all day every day to being at home alone, talking to a baby all day. (Just to be clear, I absolutely LOVE Owen, love talking to him, cooing and babbling with him) Please tell me some of you mothers understand?
Most of the time, I read while Owen is napping. The Denney's would be proud. When Brett and I were dating, I wasn't familiar with the book Marvin K Mooney Will You Please Go Now! by Dr. Seuss, so they assumed I didn't read as a child, or as an adult (but I really do)! I'm trying to develop some other hobbies/talents too. Any suggestions? Any book suggestions too?
I look forward to evenings and weekends when we can all 3 be together. I wait anxiously for Brett to get home from work. And weekends are the best because we get two whole days of Brett, it's so great!! Now all we need is some warm, sunny weather so we can play outside.
Well I guess that's enough rambling for one night.
I love my baby boy. I love my husband. I love being a mom. Life is good.

Officially a Graduate

Brett's officially a College Grad
Both of our parents were in town to celebrate! (also here for Owen's baby blessing)Matt and Bailey Bauman with Brett and Owen.
Our college days are officially over. Even though I graduated 4 years ago (yikes that makes me feel old--and for those wondering, I'm only 6 months older than Brett!) I've felt like I've still been living "college life" since Brett's still been in school. But those days are officially over. I guess that means we are grown ups. Oh, and we have a kid now so I guess that makes us grown ups too.

Owen has discovered his tongue and is obsessed!
My dad came to visit for a quick weekend trip to finally meet Owen!!!

And Owen finally got to meet Great Grandma Denney

Owen will be 2 months old this week. He's getting too big too fast!

You Gotta Try These...

I usually try to avoid the candy isle at the grocery store...otherwise I buy a big bag of Peanut Butter M&M's and eat them ALL in just a couple of days! Basically I have to avoid it because I have no self control! But today at the store, I gave in. I walked down that isle. I'm so glad I did though because I discovered these special edition Strawberried Peanut Butter M&M's. They are super yummy. Go get yourself a bag!

Owen's First Photo Shoot

One of my best friends, Tami Judd, is in town for the week. She is a great photographer so I had to have her snap some pics of little Owen. Go here for a preview of the shoot! I love them!

Thanks Tami!
