Owen's words

Tomorrow Owen is one week shy of 11 months. He's got several words he uses that we can decipher and probably a hundred more in his own little Owen language that we can't understand! As for English words, as of today Owen says:

kitty cat
tow/toe (we think this might mean "truck")
Mama (usually only when whining for something)
yes (new as of yesterday)
turtle (mimicked before, but said with purpose tonight when he picked up a toy turtle)

There have been a few words he's said after we said them: cable, Carrie (!), and breeze (said to Nona outside in the backyard!).

People who have seen Owen lately, am I missing any?

playing outside

Owen loves to be outside but doesn't love the grass. Perfect for picking up sticks!

This is the one part of our fixer-upper that doesn't have to be fixed up. I love it.

2 more for the list!

9. Owen loves looking out the windows at the yard and trees and birds.

8. The fire alarm doesn't go off when we cook! (Went off all the time in the apt.)
