Blog Neglect

So, yeah-it has been a mere 2 weeks since I last posted. I am a slacker, I know. You'll be relieved to know, all the missing posts are listed and follow. I intended to post more but, it just didn't happen. Things are way harder as a single parent. It gives me a whole new respect for parents who go it alone. Plus, as I warned him I would...my new brother in law, Jason was talking to me about Owen and I said "I thought you read my blogs" and he said "well, I do-but there are just so many words...." He's been marked off my Christmas list-well, unless the knives are ordered-then I may reconsider :-> evil cackle...

Anyway, everything is good and we are very excited to get "daddy" back tomorrow. I'm catching up since being out of town and working like 5 days straight between PC and the hospital before leaving town (planned in order to make up for the time off and out of town).

Owen will be 9 months old tomorrow and have his check up. I can't wait to update on his growth and progress. As a sneak peek, I will share our biggest new news...

Owen is CRAWLING!!!! Ok, kinda. The PT says it a modified army crawl. Which makes me laugh because the "army crawl" is a modified regular crawl babies do before they can "officially" crawl hands and knees. None the less-I think it's awesome that my "would-be" 7 month old is getting where he wants to go with rolling, creeping forward and even sliding backwards on his back-that's a hoot. I wish I could figure out how to upload "movies" as you would all get to see his hilarious antics. His crawl looks like he's an Olympic swimmer-but on carpet. The PT credits our time in WI where Owen spent more time than usual on his belly on a smooth surface as my mom has wood floors and Owen was a real mover an shaker on them. He could spin 180 degrees on his belly in a blink. It was so cute! He was so overstimulated by that floor, but go figure...it propelled him to come home with new-found abilities that traveled back home with him! I'm so proud of him! He's been such a trooper!

Yeah Owen! Army crawls are much manlier than those wussy regular crawls. Keep it up tough guy! Congrats to you and your family on the wedding! I've really enjoyed reading about it. We need to talk soon!
