Owen’s Stats:
Weight: 28 lbs. (50th percentile)
Height: 35 1/4 in. (75th percentile)
Head Circumference: 19 3/4 in. (75th percentile)

January 17, 2009: He did really well when he got his flu shot. And even better when they took a blood sample. He sat on my lap and I distracted him by talking about the Pinocchio poster in the hallway. We got home and he said “band aide” when I took it off his leg. That was a first. He has some dry patches we’ve been putting ointment on and we’ll have to watch this winter when everything is so dry. Owen is a healthy boy and developing right on pace.

Wednesday night we had dinner with friends (my beet cake was a hit) and Alex taught Owen how to catch a football. We were so excited! He normally lets the ball bounce off his chest. Owen glowed every time he caught the ball; he was so proud. Vittoria looked fantastic and I can’t wait for that little girl to get here (probably not as ready as she is 🙂 )

We are going to start potting training in ernest. I think he’s ready. Dr. Barto said to bite the bullet in next couple of weeks and put him in underwear. Peeing in your pants doesn’t feel nice and is very motivating. That makes sense to me. Owen and I picked up “big boy underpants” at Target. Guess what he picked out? Lightning Mcqueen and Elmo. No surprise there.

Love to our two favorite “Gammas,”
The Marks.
