Our childcare provider's daughter is home from school over the summer. She's 8 years old (I think) and has really taken to Owen. Look at the adorable art she and Owen made together! 

Rainy evening

We could play outside only for a little bit tonight before it started raining. So - we played with stickers!

I was trying to take his picture in his sun hat and he kept saying, "ch!"  (The noise the iPhone makes when it takes a picture.) Silly!

More Owen-isms of late

This morning at drop off at our childcare provider, I sat down on the mini sofa to read a couple books to Owen before I left. He came over and sat on my lap. Baby Henry got interested in what we were doing, so he crawled over and pulled up to standing by holding onto my knee. Owen looked at Henry, displeased, and said firmly: "Not your mommy, Henry."  !!!!!

Driving home this afternoon after pick up, Owen sneezed twice in the backseat. I said "Bless you!" each time. Then he goes, "It's a bless-you! [fake sneezing sound] It's a bless-you! [another fake sneeze]"

Some quickies:
"The sky is rolling!" (Beautiful blue sky with puffy white clouds blowing by, so it was a really nice description.)

"Wanna picnic dinner!" (I love that he asked for this! We've been bringing dinner to the park and eating at the picnic table, so I'm glad he likes it!)

"Wanna fish fry." (We haven't been to a fish fry in over a year so there's no way he could remember - teachers must have been talking about it during the day. But he's right - we need to do that! Maybe when Nona comes to visit?)

"Oh Lucy!!! Where aaaarrre you? There it is!! I'm chasing the LuLu." (Self-explanatory)

Being a toddler

Tonight Owen laid down on the floor and said, "I'm hungry. Wanna eat." And I said, "Oh, you're hungry?" And he says "No." I just burst out laughing and so did he!

Things Dave has discovered Owen doing recently in his crib when he's supposed to be going to sleep:

- Doing a headstand
- Jumping up and down with a blanket on his head. 

I wish we had a video monitor!
