time flies...

When I was off on maternity leave I had time during "nap time" to update a website with Owen's pictures, call friends and family and keep my photographs in order. In fact, I had time to create a scrapbook in Owen's honor.

Now, back at work - I have little time to keep up with my TV programs, book club and laundry - let a lone make long phone calls and ensure that all the stories about Owen's progress and photos to boot are passed along.

So I will try my hand at a blog. Since I appear to be "online" occassionally! While I hope my family and friends will appreciate hearing about Owen's latest adventures - my true goal is to keep an accurate account of his toddlerhood so that I can share it with him when he grows up.

Favourite toys: Blocks, cars, choo-choo trains, anything he can push around the floor and make noise. But the ultimate toy is a $3 Dirt Devil broom. He helps out by sweeping the house, and when we have the mop and bucket out - he dips his dirt devil in the bucket and helps with the mopping.

Least favourite toys: Probably Bouncing Tigger. If you squeeze Tigger's hand (paw?) it bounces and sings. Owen hits it over.

Favourite food: Cheese, Apple Juice, Peas. He also loves fruit, whatever is in season. Currently - Mandarin oranges.

Favourite Activities: Dancing (Ring around the rosie - "we all fall down" is very enjoyable" - over and over and over again). Singing (basically making interesting sounds - loudly), talking on the phone (hi nana, bye nana), and of course sweeping.

Favourite words: "Bob the builder" "choo-choo" " nana" - banana "mommy" "daddy" "cheese" "apple juice" "ball"

so...here is my new years resolution. To write in this blog for Owen once or twice a week. You can't say I am not goal oriented...

I think this is really good because we don't see Owen much. Hard for you though. I hope you are able to meet your objective.

SUCH a cutie...as usual.....but does this mean he's really calling me a banana?????

No Hannah - he calls you Nana - he also calls his "Nana" the same thing.

This is my second time on a blog and I won't promise to be a good one (blogger, that is) but it is a terrific way to disseminate information and keep in touch. I love the colour of Owen's room - that very saturated blue is connected to rest, royalty, quiet...and with the colourful furniture he will grow up with a good sense of colour being a stimulant or a quieting factor. Kids need colour!! no doubt about it. How do I keep in touch with this blog without you reminding me? Help.
