Owen Brown

Owen is growing up. Like for real.  He is not a little boy anymore, he is a big boy.  He is changing in his looks, the way he walks, talks, everything!  He likes video games and guns. He is becoming more and more like his father every day.  It is crazy! I tend to post more pictures of the girls and talk about them more, because he is just like every other guy...hates pictures, wants nothing to do with "girly" things and is just fine doing his own thing. I love that boy so much and am so proud of the big boy he is becoming.  Owen is so tenderhearted and always thinks of others. He wants to please and never wants to hurt anyone.  

On Thanksgiving, Shane pulled my last set of pumpkin pies out of the oven, had me check them to make sure they were done and then I went back to finish getting ready.  Owen was standing there and "his finger fell into one of the pies". Shane and Owen both panicked because they knew I would not be happy with a hole in my pie. They left it and hoped I would not see it. After I was ready, I went to the kitchen and quiclky and sternly asked "Who poked a hole in my pie?!". Shane quickly said he accidentally did it. I moved on after rolling my eyes. Well, Owen was so stressed and telling his daddy that they could not lie to me so he came in and told me the truth :).

Owen is also the funniest kid I know.

One evening, Claire was gone to a sleepover and we loaded up the other two kids to go grab dinner, eat in the car and run a few errands.  The kids did not even put shoes on. It was cold, so Owen grabbed his new robe from aunt Tara and put it on. Well we decided to stop by Shane's office and get out. As we were getting out, I noticed Owen was shedding the robe. I told him he did not have to and he said "but people will laugh at me!" I said they wouldn't and he followed up with "Well they will think I am Jesus in this robe!" :)

He calls Shane his "pro" as in "Hey pro!".  He means bro :).

I love that kid. He casts a spell on all of us :).  Here he is at his "Kindergarten Rodeo". He had a special part - he signed Jesus Loves Me :)...

I am a blessed mama to have another little Shane in my life :)

Okay so I love all of your kids, but seriously, your little boy tugs at my heart strings something fierce! I want him! I think because he looks so much like my brother when he was little, or something. I don't know. I just know that I love his little face and he has the sweetest eyes.

I'm officially creepy. I swear I'm normal.

I will repeat the same sentiment "I swear I'm not creepy"

...BUT I love your kids. And this post has tears pricking my eyes. Why? I don't know.

Owen is so very special.
