Happy Birthday Owen!

Shocking that Owen is 1 year old already!  It’s been a quick year but I can’t imagine our lives without him.

Owen, there is so much I love about you.  I love your persistence, your silly toothy smile, you’re strength, your laugh, hearing you say “Dada”, your unending appetite and desire to eat rocks, and your courage to try to climb everything even when it puts you in great danger.  It seems you have no fear of anything which is both endearing and a little scary.  You really show a great love for people and want everyone to hold you (even Tom Lips!)

When you were born last year I couldn’t have imagined how much personality such a little being had inside.  I can’t wait to see how that continues to grow in the next year.  But seriously, enough of the trying to eat rocks.  🙂
