Wow! What a lovely welcome...thank you!
Chasmyn: I actually spent a couple of hours reading your journey and life with Quinn the other night when I first found this thread...I was very moved by your story, and needless to say extremely sad...I just sat on my couch as tears streamed down my face. The picture of you and Quinn as you held him is so lovely and heartbreaking at the same time...I loved looking at Quinn's pictures...he was a very happy little guy...
I didn't get a chance to check out your blog, but will get to it one of these days as Owen allows...and it would be great to meet!!!
Skana, Tova sounds adorable! Owen never scooted on his toosh, even though I would push him around that way! I thought it would be a hoot! But, alas, he did not listen to his mama!
Owen didn't crawl till late really, (I can't remember exactly) and just now is walking. I try really hard not to compare him to other children, but I don't always succeed, as I notice that he is slower than his playmates...I hate that I notice those things...I just know he is developing well, at his pace. Sigh...(I don't mean to suggest that you are comparing BTW...just "venting" my own unhelpful internal thoughts!!!
EStreetmama...WHAT? Another Owen??? I thought we were so original with his name...
(J/K) I look forward to meeting you when we move down to Portland!
Hi New Mama! I'm sorry about the house...sending you good vibes...and hoping things still work out!!! We have found a house I LOVE, but being that we haven't even put our home on the market, it seems a bit unrealistic to even think we are going to get it...We did though contact the owner about a possible lease till our home sells, paying them full price, as we know that he is paying two mortgages...so who knows..maybe, maybe...although the thought of us over-extending ourselves financially doesn't appeal...and I know there are other houses...Maybe I just shouldn't look until I'm ready to buy??? Right!
Hi Fridgeart! I love the "yah!"...if Owen ever does anything like that he'd be eaten immediately!!!
Hi Kittie! Amalie is what my mom calls me!
I love the imitating too..it's really cute! That's how he started with kiss...super cute! I sing the few songs I know, (which is really a limited list...) to Owen, but he doesn't seem too interested...maybe my singing is REALLY bad!!!
OK...off to take Owen outside and watch DH work...Have a great weekend everyone, and thanks again for your welcome. I'm glad I found you.
