Movin' and Groovin'

Well we have about two weeks left before Eli is a full on crawl. He has the army crawl down and can get around quite proficiently. He loves wires and electrical sockets, luckily the sockets are already child proof from Owen. He also know has figured out how to sit back up after he topples over - or when Owen "lays" him down. The first time he did it was Friday night and I thought, oh man i need to lower the crib. Well I didn't get it down before he went to bed and at 4:30 am he was crying and I walked in and there he was sitting up in his crib. The first thought was "Please don't decide to project yourself out of the crib today", you see Andy and I were headed to Atlanta and I didn't have time to lower the crib at 4:30 in the morning. Well I did lower the crib and realized it isn't low enough, he can pull himself up and it is at his waist, so tonight I am going to lower it again. My baby is growing up too fast!

Owen the leper

Yesterday I had the first little heartbreak for Owen. We went to Chick-fil-a to enjoy the free chicken sandwiches and to let Owen play on the play ground. Owen was so excited to play it was a challenge to get him to finish his sandwich. We he was finally done he ran into the play room and Eli and I followed. Owen was having a blast climbing and coming down the slide. Then these two kids (girl and boy about 6 and 4 respectively) came down the slide and said "Hurry hide he is coming", I was curious who the were running from..oh yeah my son, Owen. I was kinda hurt by that and wondered what he had done. He was seeming to be in a good mood and was just chasing him, so I chalked it up to him being 3 and they were "to cool" for him. Then the little boy left and the girl found a new friend about the same age and they continued to hide from Owen. Soon Owen comes down and comes to me and says "I pooped". First I am shocked because we haven't had a poop accident in a long time and Secondly it crosses my mind, were they running from the stinky three year old? Hmm.. the debate is there and for his sake I hope they were running from the stinky boy and not the 3-year old.
