Hair Doodles was booked so I ended up taking him to Sports Clips b/c several of our friends go there. They did a pretty good job concidering he wouldn't keep his head still...
I gave him a sucker and told him if he wanted to keep it, he had to sit in the chair.
Josh couldn't get off work to go so it was just me and Owen with him. I was nervous that there would be a melt down, but surprisingly, it went pretty smoothly. I promised him a "pwize" if he did good so we went to Target afterwards and he picked out a "twactor". YAY for Target's dollar section! He had no idea that he got a cheap toy and I didn't have to spend a fortune!! :) Santa's coming soon, ya know!
Patiently waiting for his turn while reading the sports mags!
Trying to sit still!
The End Result!
(I think he was about to dig for treasure!)

I am thankful for everything I have experienced in this life of mine
I am thankful for all the tears I have cried
Through my tears I have come to know his Holy Spirit in my life
I am thankful for the storms I have encountered, knowing that a rainbow is at the end Realization that they are only temporal, that with time all will mend
I have learned that I don’t need to be strong, for Yahshua supplies the strength for me
I am thankful for all the relationships, for the good and for the bad
My most valuable relationship is that with Yahweh, my Father
I am thankful for the pain I have known, it has given a compassion for the suffering
I understand the greatness of Yahshuas love and the pain he suffered for me
I am thankful for the hunger and thirst that I have had to go through
He has given himself as my food and drink to make sure that I was fed
Most of all, I am thankful for His Grace, for the provisions that it brings

He no longer sits in his high chair! (I have been keeping him in that high chair b/c the clean up is so much easier!)

I know this is going to be very difficult for me because having to clean up pee-pee from everything is going to make me insane, but I am hoping he'll get the hang of it fast so accidents will be minimal.

In the meantime, Betsy and I met up with our friends Jessie and Jeff and guess who we got to see? YEP!! The 8 time gold medalist, himself, Michael Phelps!! He was like 30 yards from us. It doesn't take much to get me excited!! I called Josh and this was how our conversations went:
Me: "OHMIGOODNESS! I AM LOOKING AT MICHAEL PHELPS! HE'S HERE AND IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF US AT THE GAME! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?"
His Response: "So?"
Sometimes we just don't get each other.....

He is the best baby I've ever known. He loves sleeping, smiling and laughing!! Rarely does he cry! He is such a sweet blessing in my life.
They say you can't have 2 good babies in a row, but I am a testament that this is not true. Price was a good baby and Owen is even better. Hopefully this trend will continue.....not getting my hopes up though!
We went for his 4 month check up and he weighs 17lbs and was 27 inches long. He was in the 90% for weight and 95% for height (WHOO-HOO!!) and his head circumference was off the charts, which is funny because I thought Price's head was much bigger then Owens and his was only in the 55th percentile. I guess it's big for that large brain that is going to help him do great things! :)
Dr. Dodds said that we could try baby food now so this morning I put him in his high chair for the first time and attempted to give him some applesauce. He wasn't into it at all...he just kept pushing it out of his mouth with a disgusted look on his face! (Funny, b/c Price probably would have eaten real food straight from the womb) Oh Well....we'll try again another time!!

On Wednsday we had two very special births!
And on Sunday Owen was dedicated at church. We had most of our family their to celebrate and it was a very special occasion for us. Owen was an angel during the dedication but spit up all over Josh's suit as soon as we got finished!! :) You can see his dedication via the FBC worship cast here.
All in all, this was a great week!! Glad things are going to calm down for a little while (at least until Thanksgiving)!
