Owyn is getting so big... not by size or weight really, but just turning into a big girl. There is no newborn left in her, she is all baby, if that makes sense. She even gets looks on her face sometimes and I feel like I'm catching a glimpse of her toddler years to come.
She still only rolls from back to belly. She can roll the other way, but prefers not to. She really likes being on her belly. She can push herself all the way up with her arms. She'll do what looks like push ups on the floor forever!
She is also very social. She loves when we are around groups of people and goes to anyone that wants to play with her. She is all smiles for everyone! She gets very distracted though, which has made nursing anywhere but home a pain in the butt... even sometimes at home if we have company. She has to be in everyone's business! I cannot have a conversation while nursing her and usually have to end up going to a room by ourselves to get her to nurse.
We took her camping for the first time last weekend. It was just overnight. And it was really hot, so we waited until the sun started to go down before we even left, so she wouldn't get too hot. She loved it! All the distractions made it hard for her to go to sleep. And she did get sweaty, so I stripped her down to her diaper and that's how she ended up sleeping all night. I was hoping she'd let me put her to sleep in the camper and then I'd be able to go back out by the fire with our friends, but once she fell asleep I was stuck inside with her. She wouldn't let me leave her side. It was okay, though, she didn't pass out until after 11 anyway, which is wayyy late for her.
I'm getting a little nervous. I'm attending a musical with some women in the family in a few weeks. I'm leaving Owyn at home with DH and I'll probably be gone around 7 hours. That's the longest she has stayed at home with Daddy. I've been having him do more for her the last few weeks just so they both are ready for it. He has given her a couple of bottles, which she has trouble with. He ended up taking the nipple off and just feeding it to her that way. I've also had him put her to sleep a few times so she's used to it.
The show is kind of a test run for me. My family has a tradition of taking a weekend trip to Branson in November to do Christmas shopping at the outlets there. No babies, kids, or husbands allowed. I haven't decided if I'll be able to leave her for the weekend. Gonna see how the musical night goes and go from there. DH is a little nervous at the thought of taking care of her by himself all weekend.
