This is going to be 99.9% Owen updates so be warned! He is 6 weeks old already and we have been loving every second of having him in our lives. I have taken a picture every week and used photoshop to write how old he is and it is so crazy to see how much he has changed in such a short time!


He used to be a tiny squishy baby and now he is a chunky monkey!



4 Weeks

5 Weeks

6 Weeks

I forgot to take his socks of for 6 weeks, but he has started smiling a lot and it is the cutest thing EVER!


Dan gave him his first bath in the tub and he seriously loved it. He loves the tub and I think he would stay in there for hours!


My mom gave me this awesome Solly Baby wrap for my birthday and I have been using it a lot! It’s basically the same as a Moby wrap and it’s a huge long piece of fabric that you wrap around your body then put your baby in it. I have gotten the hang of it and now I leave Owen’s legs out. He really likes it when he is tired or upset and he falls right to sleep in it! I love it and think it’s super cute and I’m excited to use it when we go out more often. I don’t keep him in it all the time, but I love cuddling with him and he is so cozy in it!


Dustin and Kaley came to visit when Owen was only about 2 weeks old. Their little Reese is 2 months older than Owen but they are almost the same size! She is definitely longer than him but he is a big kid. She is a doll and it is so fun to have our good friends have a new baby at the same time as us! We are already planning the wedding!


We got TONS of snow over the past few weeks and it was piled at the end of our driveway. We probably had about 3 feet on the ground at one point. It was nuts and so pretty to see. I especially loved not having to drive to work in it!


Dan finally got his truck! He has been talking and dreaming about getting a truck for years and after looking for over a year, we finally did it! He loves it and I’m going to love having something to use to pick up furniture, haul dirt and plants, and to use for any other projects that don’t fit in our Honda!

We drove to Logan to get the truck and it was the first time we had been out of the house for more than an hour or two with Owen (except at parent’s houses). It was an adventure to change and feed him in random places, but he was a trooper and did great! Luckily we had the truck which made it much easier to change him!


Owen and I bundled up on a warm day last week and went for a nice walk together. I ended up taking off my coat and gloves because it was so warm! I loved it and can’t wait for it to warm up more so I can get out more with this baby!

I absolutely love the stroller we ended up with, thanks to my awesome girlfriends’ suggestions. We just got a snap and go stroller frame that our car seat can snap into. It is super light and small and very convenient. I have already taken it to the store a few times by myself and I can’t imagine having to haul something bigger around and put it in and out of the car. We will need to get a “real” stroller eventually but the snap and go is only about $60 so we will probably look for a jogger stroller in the next few months.

Cutest picture ever!

So cute! I'd really love to get together sometime, especially now that the snow isn't as constant. Email me if you'd like to get together one day since we're both home for now. :)

Oh, it is the best when they start smiling huh?
I love how newborns legs are always squished up against their body's, like little frog legs. Those week by weeks are fun to see as his smiles come out and his legs start relaxing. He's adorable.

He is so cute! I love the snap-and-go, and that is what I tell everyone to get now!!!

Kaley and Dustin said...

Holy crap he is cute! We want to see him again!

Fun fun, I wish I would have gotten a snap stroller, instead I got a double stroller, it's a huge monster. He is so cute!
