Owens Blessing!

We blessed Owen on January 22, 2012. It was a great day. We all wondered if he was going to be one of those babies that cried durring the blessing but he didn't he did a great job. When Ryan held him up at the end his blue eyes were looking around and he was so excited. Eveyone oohed and Awed.

Since our apartment isn't big enough we had a picnic after church. A bunch of food family and fun.

Girl or Boy??

While visiting family last weekend I woke up at like 7:30 to feed Owen. Grandma Pett says I'm up I'll feed him. So I went back to sleep for a little bit longer. I come down an hour later with some clothes for him to wear and this is what I find.

Grandma Dressed me up as a Girl :(

She had a baby girl outfit with no one to give it to. I think she just wants a granddaughter. Not for a couple years sorry.


Ryan this summer decided he wanted to run in the PF Changs Rock N Roll Marathon in Phoenix AZ. He did a half marathon last year and wanted to do a full one this year. Owen was due a month before the marathon so he figured that would give him time to re-adjust. He was training and his goal was to run it in 4 hours. He was on his way all set to achieve his goal then I had Owen. Since Owens birth on November 30 he hasn't run farther than 6 miles and before that the farthest he had run was 12 miles which is a half marathon. Since we weren't getting enough sleep and I wasn't making a big enough breakfast for him he couldn't run as far as he wanted durring his last month of training. About a week before the marathon I asked, knowing what you know now about having a baby would you still have signed up to run the marathon. He respond I would of done the half marathon. The day came and his new goal was to break 4 and 1/2 hours. He did just that with a time of 4 hours 26 minutes.

Tummy Time

I was doing Tummy Time with Owen when he was 34 days old and he rolled over. When I put him back on his Tummy he rolled over again. I have been recording him ever since trying to get to roll over again but I haven't got him to roll over again. When he did roll over he was propped up on his arms and legs and rocking back and forth so he might have just fell over. I still count it though. I hope to get him on video rolling over sometime soon.

Here is one of the videos I have taken since.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. This was Owens first Christmas. On Christmas eve he was babysat by Grandma and Grandpa Pett so his Mom and Dad could take a break and go see a movie. When we were done Owen got to sit on Santa's Lap for the first time. Can you tell who Santa is???

Yep thats Grandpa Smith.

Owens First trip to Church was on Christmas he was dressed as an elf and got to hear Grandma Pett give a talk all though he slept through the whole thing.

Later on Christmas we went to my Grandma Smith's house and had a family picture. Owen got to be Santa that time.
