| What life has come to »
Welcome to life as a little brother, Owen my friend.
Owen clocked in at 10 lbs 1 oz yesterday, up 22 ounces in 11 days. It seems that my one real skill in life is lactating.

You forgot producing beautiful children and taking very good care of your ever-growing family! :-)
Krush | February 27, 2008 8:17 AM
Awww! He doesn't look very happy in the second photo.
Owen: The bright side is Mia didn't put a dress on you.
Maria | February 27, 2008 8:24 AM
You have a very beautiful family. Congratulations on Owen's birth.
Kim | February 27, 2008 8:28 AM
Owen looks less than thrilled about the pink hat!
Reminds me of the way I used to torture my younger brother by putting my dresses on him and barettes in his hair. Wonder if my mom still has those pics?
Lisa | February 27, 2008 8:38 AM
Yay! Owen Wednesdays!!
My guess is that in about six months he'll be working that pink hat like a pro!
Susan | February 27, 2008 8:55 AM
You have many skillz, lactating is just one!!! The picture 3rd from the top just kills me of Owen's face. Its like he is taking a major dump or he just really sick of the pink hat already! LOL! Very cute! Mia seems to still be enjoying the little brother.

Lactating rulez! ;)
Leah | February 27, 2008 9:03 AM
I used to dress my little brother in my dresses too...
suze | February 27, 2008 9:10 AM
Wow... tortured already... guess he has to be toughened up somehow.
He does not look like a happy kid.
WTG on being Super Lactator!
Karen | February 27, 2008 9:17 AM
Take your skills where you can get them!
Sorry Owen, that is probably just the first dress up of many.
diane | February 27, 2008 9:20 AM
Lactating is your super power!
Also, Owen seems none too pleased with the hat.
Sparkle Pants | February 27, 2008 9:31 AM
His face ... in that second picture ... hee. Priceless.
Fraulein N | February 27, 2008 9:46 AM
Adorable! He'll grow up to be sensitive and unafraid to embrace his feminine side.
Shelly | February 27, 2008 9:48 AM
Hooray for Owen Wednesdays!!!
And hooray for a good eater and sleeper! Big babies tend to be good sleepers. Nine more ounces and he'll be up to my birth weight!
Sandy | February 27, 2008 10:26 AM
He looks completely dismayed in that second photo; it's too funny.
claire | February 27, 2008 10:52 AM
He doesn't seem too pleased. At least you know he'll never be a cross-dresser :) Not that there's anything worng with that.
Mom On The Run | February 27, 2008 10:54 AM
oh yes...it'll never get better for him. wait until he's wearing the princess dresses ;)
ali | February 27, 2008 11:09 AM
Owen is already making dad's funny faces. How cute is that! :)
oakley | February 27, 2008 11:10 AM
Ha. He's not lovin' it. Sorry bud, sisters are like that. :) They're also a lot of fun, and pretty sweet and kind.
Oh and HEY! You have nice teeth and your smile is even better when you show them!
Brad | February 27, 2008 11:28 AM
So cute! (But I just don't think pink is his color!)
RC | February 27, 2008 11:41 AM
You know, sounds like your dairy factory is a really good one. Perhaps the baby factory sent you such a bruiser because he knew that Mia would be his constant playmate! LOL
Hey Beth, you look super!
Maribeth | February 27, 2008 11:48 AM
Good growing Owen! Looks like he'll be a tolerant little brother!
My Owen gained 2 pounds in his first 2 weeks of life! That prompted my pediatrician to ask if I was producing buttermilk!
Love the cheeks, so cute!
Katie | February 27, 2008 12:29 PM
Oh, that little pouty face is adorable!
jen | February 27, 2008 12:37 PM
He looks thrilled!
And you're looking great, too.
Dianna | February 27, 2008 1:16 PM
Oh, that hat is hilarious! Eli has encountered many such torture sessions from HIS big sis, but I'm sure he'll exact revenge later, so I don't sweat it.
Also: we share the same life skill. My son was gaining weight at exactly that rate the first four months or so. He has FINALLY begun to slow down a bit, thank heavens, or I'd be toting around the World's Largest Six Month Old by now. Don't you love all the leg rolls, though?
Sarah | February 27, 2008 1:17 PM
He looks thrilled. :)
Pammer | February 27, 2008 1:22 PM
Hi Beth! It's been forever since I commented here, so if you've forgotten who I am, ask The Cactus. Owen is SO adorable. I wanted to tell you that that's my little brother's name, so I'm going to personally tell everyone I know that he's named after my brother. Because that is how much I am in love with your family.
And congratulations. I may be shit with commenting, but I have been kept up to date by Sparkle Pants, and I am so happy for you guys. And impressed by Mia. I don't remember if I was that nice to my own Owen when he was born. He's almost exactly two years younger than I am. And then there was an accident three years later, so be prepared for that. And name it Sionnan. :)

Heh, I hear ya about the one real skill in life is lactating... that is so me too!!!
Christina | February 27, 2008 4:22 PM
University Politico has wonky internets, so she asked me to ask you to delete her redundant comment.
Sparkle Pants | February 27, 2008 4:24 PM
Owen Wednesday! Love it!
The face is totally Do.Not.Want!
Michelle | February 27, 2008 4:26 PM
that apparently has always been my best skill as well.
also, at least he will grow up comfortable with his feminine side ;)
sweethomealagirl | February 27, 2008 4:34 PM
Typical boy! You can tell Owen doesn't care for the pink cowgirl hat!
coolchick | February 27, 2008 7:54 PM
Seems by his face he can already tell the hat is pink. :) What a cute big sister Mia is!
Dana | February 27, 2008 9:21 PM
His face is precious in the middle photos. You and Chris sure produce cute kids. :)
Allison | February 28, 2008 12:46 AM
He does NOT look happy...
Is Mia going to be the kind of big sister who dresses up her brother like he's her doll? Look out, Owen!
Allison | February 28, 2008 1:45 AM
Haha poor Owen! ;-) He looks super cute though. And how beautiful and glowy do you look?! Especially in that first pic.
