Chickadee Number 2

Owen James was my happy little man from the time he was born.   He was a startling contrast to his older, more subdued sister.  Since then, his life has been full of dramatic highs and lows.  Most of the time, he is so incredibly joyful that it is contagious.  However, when he is not happy, there is no way that anyone around him can be happy.   

Here is one of his very first smiles.  He couldn't have been more than a few weeks old.  I've heard people say that babies don't really smile - it's just gas.  I don't see how anyone could look at this face and not see the smile.

Another thing about Owen is that he is a constant ball of energy.  Constant.  He stops to sleep and to refuel (EAT).   The amounts of food this little guy ate seemed nearly impossible.   3 or 4 bananas at one setting, entire sweet potatoes, stacks of graham crackers.   It was (and continues to be) very impressive.

When he was a baby, I fondly referred to him as "kissy boy!"   He had nothing but love for his mama!!!  It amazes me how such a rough and tumble kid can stop in mid-air to tell his mother that he loves her or to give her a kiss.   

I can't believe how quickly my little man is growing up.  

Owen is always looking for a new adventure.
And, never be fooled - Owen loves having 3 sisters!!!
