Owen has started this new thing with his tongue where he sticks it out & sucks his upper lip. It is so cute & it seems like everytime I turn around, his tongue is sticking out.

It seems like he starts something new everyday.

Yesterday we were on the fun all day long. It started out with a soccer game in the morning, home for lunch, went to Sam's for some chicken, Target for some items, & finally to Kroger's for some ice cream. Tony went out last night & Owen and I just stayed at home. It seems like Tony goes out all the time, when in fact, he doesn't. It's just the two of us never get to go out together & it makes me sad.

This week we don't have a lot going on. I hope it will go by quickly & the weekend will be here before I know it. I love being home with Owen & playing with him. Next Sunday he will be 5 months old.

Well, I am going to go get ready to go to my parent's house.

♥ BoTh WaYs ♥

It's official, Owen is rolling over both ways now. Wednesday night Tony & I went out for the first time since Owen arrived. We were over his mother's house and Owen was on the quilt on the floor playing. She said..."he just rolled back on to his stomach" So, I watched him and sure enough he is rolling over both ways.

Owen is starting to make the sweetest sounds. The other morning I heard him in his crib saying "DaDa" and he is also saying "BaBa" Wow! He is growing up so fast & I don't really like it. Owen is really starting to talk and make all kinds of funny little sounds. It seems like there is something new everyday with him.

I believe he is starting to get ready to cut teeth. His hands are ALWAYS in his mouth, drooling, runny nose, & some other things. Not to mention the daycare said something to me about it. I guess only time will tell. Today I am home with him b/c he is not feeling so well.

Next Sunday Owen will be 5 months old. Oh how time flies! Only one more month until he will starting eating some kinds of food. That is going to be really fun! One more month & will are going to have his 6 month pics made. I am SO excited about that one.

Last weekend we bought Owen an exersaucer & it's so cute to see him play in it. There are all these really neat toys attached to it & he loves putting them in his mouth. Our house has become filled with baby toys & it's only going to get worse. :)

Well, I am off to wash bottles, pacies, & pumping items. I will update with pics this weekend. Until next time...

Where does the time go?

It seems just like yesterday I was pregnant with Owen & loving every minute of it. Today he is getting close to 5 months old & I wish I could freeze time. However, we are moving right along and he is getting sweeter by the day. I absolutely love being a Mother & I can't wait till I have a house full of children.

Some new things Owen is doing:

Grabbing his feet
Sucking his toes
Rolling over like crazy
Making all kinds of gooing sounds
Holding his head up so well
Sleeping is his crib for naps

As you can see, Owen is doing new things everyday. I will post some pics on here tomorrow, the camera is dead. He is the love of my life and I am so thankful God has blessed me with such a wonderful baby.

Work is getting better, I just wished I was lucky enough to be a SAHM. However, I am stuck working...for now. I wouldn't even mind if Tony could stay home, that's not an option right now either. Speaking of work, I believe I am going to go back to school in Jan. to start working on my Ph.D. in education. For some reason I feel like I need to get this last degree & my career will be complete. It's not so much being called Dr. Lankford, it's wanting to go as far as I can.

Well, I need to go do some planning for this week. I will update later in the week with some pics.

Until next time...

♥ Things I hate...♥

I have been doing a lot of thinking here these days and there are some things I hate:

  • liars
  • cheaters
  • butt kissers
  • people who are fake
  • those that dont pull their weight
  • not being home with Owen
  • people who dont understand me, my family, & the chioces I make
  • cleaning
  • bugs
  • being sick
  • cancer
  • lack of sleep

The list could go on and on. I feel I am so distanced from some of my friends right now & I need to change that. I have so much going, home, Owen, life, and other things. I feel I can never catch up on things. Work is stressing me out & I hope that will end really soon.

Well, I thought I would update since it's been a while. I don't think there are many if any that read this. Those who do...hope all is well.
