Ow-Doggie – 10 months

IMG_3091*the photo to the right is a test shot from Owens session. The flash is set wrong – hence a shadow – but this photo was the only one I got of him standing , since while I adjusted camera settings, Owen decided to fall over – so then any standing photos I attempted he refused. So despite the shadow, I had to post this picture – because he looks like hes posing with his hand on his hip!*

Ok… to the post :)

Owen has become Owster…
now at 10 mo. his new nick name lately is “Ow-Doggie”
Even the Burger is calling him this.

Its pretty cute :) – esp. when Owen gets hurt and Taite comes running saying “owww… owww doggie, its ok”

So, what is the Ow-doggie up to these days.

Well he has 4 teeth
2 more top teeth popping through this week – they look painful!
He eats anything we eat, really – anything.
He is a shover – which means, you have to break food up for him into pieces, and feed it to him in moderation, otherwise he shoves his entire plate of food into his mouth – resulting in a less than happy Owster.

Owen is crawling with full force, pulling up in places he shouldn’t – a few head bonks as a result.
Owen walks holding onto furniture, letting go in hopes he will stand for just a moment.

Owen says a few things now.


and a bunch of crazy unknowns. His form of singing I call it.

Owen also is learning some sign already.
We are teaching him to sign milk – and as of now, when we say milk he will sign it.
Its pretty cute once they start to communicate with you in this way.

He still wears size 3 disposables
He also is still in the largest size setting on his cloth diapers (this will prob be the case throughout his diaper days – once they get to the largest setting, they usually dont go back :-) – but you never know!)
He is wearing 12-24 month clothing.
Pants are at least 18 months and up.

He loves to play with his brothers. They keep him entertained A LOT.


Owen is a HUGE bath fan.
Loves nursery rhymes right now.
He will clap those little hands any time you begin to sing.

Hes getting a wee bit big for church now :( – ive kept him with me since he was born, but lately Ive noticed he is getting to be a distraction – since he likes to make noises now. So the days of nursery for him will start soon… although im dreading it – not that I dont like nursery… I just love having him with me, that when its time to pass him over to a nursery – its just evidence of him growing up – and way to fast.

We are unsure what Owen weighs right now or his height.
We missed his 9 month well baby apt… and honestly prob. wont take him in until he turns 1.
Because we don’t vaccinate until after 2 – we really dont feel the strong need to take him in for so many check ups. He seems to be developing just fine.

I will try to weigh him soon though just so I can have a personal record of it :)

Lets see… what else….

He’s cute? :-)


really… could he get any cuter?
His little pokey ears and that grin melts my heart daily.

We just love him!

    1. @Aliesha, He probably did! Hes still learning – but he will prob get pretty good with it by 15 months or so. We taught Caleb a ton of sign because he had such a hard time talking (you wouldnt know that now haha) – he used it til about age 2 1/2!

    1. @Sarah, Its seamless photography paper, I just taped it to our living room wall for the session and used a “fake” piece of molding strip to make it look like it was a wall :)
