One week old! WOW!

It's really hard for me to believe that Owen is one week old today. Where did one whole week go? How did seven days pass by already with this little baby in our lives? It doesn't seem possible.

Yesterday Owen had a rough day. This top picture shows how he spent most of the day. I'm not really sure why, but he wasn't a happy camper. I brought him to a La Leche League meeting in the morning, and all was well. Spent some time outside in the afternoon, and all was well. But come 6 PM and it all went downhill. He must have cried from 6 to midnight, off and on.
Samantha was able to calm him down though so that was nice, gave me a little break. Whenever I hold him, and he's cranky, he just wants to nurse.

The next 3 pictures were taken today. I love how I caught the little smirks on his face!! He "smiles" a lot but they're very quick. And then he usually makes what I like to call his "mad face" where he scrunches down his eyebrows and looks at you with these little eyes. And then smiles again. It's very cute!!

Today he has spent most of the day sleeping, go figure. I'm hoping that doesn't mean he will be
up all night, but what can I do? I'm not going to make him stay awake.

Today Mommy and Daddy took Owen to 2 stores and he did really well. Slept most of the time in fact. It was really nice to get out, for me at least!

Art is back to working 3-11:30. Thankfully tonight I got Lisa to bring Samantha to Girl Scouts, and I got my mother to bring the boys to tae kwon do. I just hate the thought of them missing so much. And I still can't drive. Not to mention, I really don't want to bring Owen out
where until I HAVE to.

The weather is beautiful today, and Owen and I took our first real walk! I went by myself, with my music, because he was asleep. Not to mention, I wasn't sure if he would like it because last time I tried he just cried. But this time he just slept. Until I got to my friend Regina's house... when she came out to meet him, he let out a really big wet toot and filled his diaper. That's a great first impression!! She loved him anyway!

Uh-- there he is making noise, so I better go get him. Have a great day!!
