Owen Chatting.....

Owen has really been talking up a storm lately!! He is really starting to put 3 and 4 words together and form sentences!! Wow! Here are some of his latest sayings.

The other day when I laid him down for his nap…well he was carrying on up there for over 30 minutes having a complete party in his bed… he was saying mommy, mommy, look…..finally I went up there to see what in the world he was doing and I found him doing a handstand in his bed to which he replied “there you are silly” haha!

At night he really carries on…. Mommy wash clothes, mommy wash blanket, froggy blanket.....which turns into singing OOO (song from preschool), Owen loves KK and her Sissy (preschool friends), Daddy Belk escalators (rides escalators at Belk) , Petco Maggie treats I throw (picks treats out for my dad's dog and throws them to him) . Percy Owen Carroll (he has named all his trains_____ Owen Carroll…too funny) then he will start jumping on his bed….he says “no bump your head”…haha! He sings, recites everything that he was done that day, and then he is OUT! WOW! We listen to him over the monitor and just crack up!

In Target today, a lady told him he was so cute he replied “why, thank you”…and blew her a kiss!

If you ask him something he says ‘sure' …..we are trying to get him to say yes m'am but for now everything is either sure or no…ha! Too cute!

If you are in the car riding you get a complete tour of your surroundings as you are in route….tree, big tree, tree fall, boat gone sold (a boat that was sitting on a corner 5 months ago is still there in his mind….doesn’t forget a thing), church, Frosty, Target, Kohls, Walmart, Chick-fil-a, up hill, down hill, fast fast, turn, park, white, yellow, orange…etc car……he talks nonstop in the car….and waves at everybody when we stop…even if they can’t see him!!! sometimes it can be a bit exhausting! Funny and cute nevertheless.

I just LOVE this age! He is hilarious! You never know what is going to come out of his mouth…he is so funny…it amazes me that he knows and remembers so much! It just seems like this week he is talking so much more!!! I have always been told that once they start talking they don’t stop and there is so much truth to that! We love him so much and are having the time of our life raising him!
Owen LOVES the reese cup eggs....just like me! Yum!!
Loves to talk to his daddy everyday while he is at work!!! he tells him what he and mommy have done and what he wants to do when he gets home...he ends with love you...and kisses the phone! Love it!

I HEART This Weather!!!

Don't you just love the beautiful weather that we have had over the last several days? Owen and I have been outside constantly, taking advantage of it completely. He has a new, well new to him, motorized fire truck and it is the coolest thing ever!!! It has a real hose and you can actually fill it up with water and squirt it like firemen do. It has sirens, a ladder, lights, CB radio, is like a real mini fire truck! He loves it so much and it makes me so happy to see him (and me) enjoy it. I can't wait to look back on these pics as he gets older...I am sure he will get a kick out of mommy driving his fire truck and daddy riding his bike!! What a fun family evening we had!
My sweet little side kick! LOVE HIM!

Whoever said adults can't have fun....I think these pics say it all!

This pic cracks me was seconds before both of our hats flew off! ha! What fun we had....I sure hope the neighbors don't think I'm nuts! ha!

Wordless Wednesday

Hide and Seek

One of Owen's all time favorite games is Hide and Seek! He loves it and cracks himself up with this game. He loves to run up to me and announce that he is "going to hide" and takes off....if I don't come right away to find him he yells "mommy mommy" and peaks around the cute and funny! This is his latest favorite place to hide....sneaky little thing! I guess he thought I would never find him....of course, I do a lot of pretending that I don't see him in this cute and fun game!

Owen has cleared everything out of the basket to make room for....Owen!

In I go!

Popped up when he didn't see me....but to his surprise, I had the camera! ha! Looks like he is a bit surprised!

Random February Shots!

Wow! Where did February go? It has been a busy, sick, and fun month (if it is possible to combine all three)! It started off with our entire family getting a sore throat/cold and two weeks after that, we all ended up with a terrible stomach bug, which we hope and pray doesn't come back in our house for a long time! We have become quite obsessed with hand sanitizer, wipes, vitamins, and pediasure in hopes not to get sick again…or for at least a while. Poor Owen lost 4lbs since his Nov checkup b/c of all the sickness!! He is doing much better thanks to pediasure, peanut butter, avocados, whole milk….etc….we hope he can gain it all back and more :)

I don’t know about you but we are ready for springtime!!! We can’t wait to get outside more, fire up the grill, and enjoy the beautiful flowers and all of the blooming that takes place in the spring! Time to dust off the camera and take some more pics…February was just not a Kodak moment for us! Here are a few random pictures taken throughout the month! Happy March ya’ll!

Owen loves the computer...loves to check out his blog as well as his friends.
Our little fire chief

My snuggle bug, we did lots of snuggling this month. When Owen is under the weather he becomes a super snuggler...not that we enjoy spreading all the germs, but it's something that mama's just have to do! Ha

Reading his favorite...Thomas!!! He knows all the trains...however, Thomas, Percy, and Toby still remain to be his favorites!

Owen helps me make a banana pudding...his version!

He got so tickled!!! He is so funny!!
