Hungover baby?

"I had too much to drink last night and I think I'm going to puke all over my cheerios"
-- what Owen might very well be thinking


I had never stumbled across wet cement, ripe for the picking, in my life .... until last week when I was walking with Owen to the playground. How could anyone resist? Well, I couldn't. Despite the orange cones hanging yellow "stay out" tape around the cement, I got in there and wrote boyo's name in big letters with a stick:

Then we went to the playground, swang on the swings and slid down the slides, and saw a couple of construction guys pouring more cement. Luckily, there were not onto us. But, it seems that they noticed our little act of vandalism and tried to sandblast it away. Unfortunately for them all that did was to make the OWEN in the ground stand out more! (as Owen's shadow noticed a few days later:)

As anyone who knows me knows, I am not one to go against the grain and commit random acts of vandalism! (And as anyone who really knows me knows, that last sentence is a load of crap). But I am super pleased with myself for carving boyo's name in the ground in a place that we hang out a lot and in a way that should stick around for a few years at least. Take that, mr man!

More pics from Owen's photo shoot

Here are more pictures of Owen from the Bruz Wear photo shoot:

These are the original shoots (ie no cropping or photoshopping!). I have to say, Owen is quite a cutie! And he LOVES trucks!

Owen: a model child?

Even as a fetus, Owen has always been quite photogenic (see his "Blue Steel" impression from August 7, 2007). So, when a local clothing company ( needed models for their catalog, I signed Owen up.

The shoot was on July 2nd. We met at a nearby playground. Sean was already in Seattle and Owen and I were headed to the airport after the shoot. Unfortunately, Owen decided to get up quite early (5am!) that morning so by 9, he was quite cranky. But the photographer was wonderful and she was able to capture a few good shots of the little guy...

For those of your with small children, I HIGHLY recommend Bruz Wear pants! Not only do they have cool patterns, but they are super durable and practical. The patches on the knees are actually knee pads! Owen's first pair of Bruz Wear pants (as seen in many of the pics below), are hand-me-downs of hand-me-downs. That's how long they last!

Ok, enough of this commercial break. We now return you to our regular scheduled blogging.... :)
