A Librarian He is Not . . .

Yesterday, Owen hit 13 months, and it took me aback for a moment.  Was his birthday really only a month ago? Because it feels like months have passed since that day.  I'm always surprised at how quickly a little one changes once that first birthday hits.  It is kind of like a switch gets flipped, one day baby, the next ornery little boy.
Things he has done in the last month . . .
Well, for starters he's pretty good at feeding himself. ;o)
~
Walks around with a phone at his ear "talking"
~
Brushes his teeth and spits in the sink
~
When I ask the kids "What are you thankful for tonight?" he immediately folds his hands to pray
~
Points remotes at the TV, pushing buttons
~
Strings toilet paper all over the bathroom and adjoining rooms
~
Learned how to go down the stairs
~
Climbs. Everything.
~
Knows where all of our eyes are located . . . and our belly buttons too (the beep-beep)
~
Lots and lots of changes . . . He makes us giggle constantly with all the ways he mimics us, convinced I believe, that he is much older than he actually is. (Except he is still nursing . . . it's mainly a comfort thing, ummmm probably for both of us . . . because I still know he's my baby then). ;o)

Among other news we're home from church this morning.  Owen's nose, still gunky. Isabella went in to the dr. on Friday, ear infection.  And Jackson, up sobbing most of the night with ear pain, we'll be taking him in this afternoon--hopefully in the early part of the afternoon, because today is the day of the Joshua Bell concert and I'm really hoping Josh will provide chauffeur service, dropping the girls and I off right in front of the Lied (and picking us up too!).  That would be awesome.  In a perfect world I believe all my children would get ear infections on EXACTLY the same day--that would be awesome too . . . in a multitasking sort of way. ;o)  Hope everyone is staying safe and warm on this snowy and cold day.
