Random Owen Pictures

Owen is almost 4 months old, and he is getting to be a really huge kid... much bigger than Jaxon was at this age. He is getting to be really interactive with people and faces and toys. Here are a bunch of random shots of Owen over the last few weeks.

Here is Owen on Jaxon's Spiderman couch getting to know a little bit more about Trevor.

  Owen wiggled his way under the Christmas tree the other day to get a better look at the ornaments.

We've tried to give Owen a soother, but all he wants is to suck on his thumb.

Owen chilling out on Jaxon's Spiderman couch.

Owen trying out his saucer for the first time. You can see Jaxon in the back in the Old Navy shirt just waiting for his turn in the saucer.

Owen dressed up in his Rudolph pajamas getting ready for Christmas

Owen making his attempt at crawling. He can get his head up, but still needs to work on getting his arms and legs moving.

We put Owen in his high chair for the first time this week too. He looks a little dwarfed by the massive chair, but he seemed to enjoy it quite a bit.

Jaxon's Letter From Santa

Everyday when I get the mail, Jaxon always asks if there is any messages for him... and he is always disappointed when I tell them that there isn't. But today, there was mail for him. He wrote a letter to Santa last week and today he got his reply letter in the mail. Look how excited he was to open mail for Jaxon!

Such an excited face!

Jaxon loves tearing paper, and had a lot of fun opening the letter from Santa.

So Excited

Last night we decorated the Christmas Tree! We put on Amanda's Favorite Christmas CD Jingle Bell Jazz and Amanda and Owen danced... Owen loved it. If Amanda would stop he would hold up his hands to hear and grin... like he was asking for more!

Jaxon cant wait to get at the tree!

Something New

Jaxon has learned to play on the computer all by himself. We made a shortcut to the games on and now he can come up and get his games going with out any help from Mommy and Daddy... there are pros and cons to that !

Owen loves toys now... He can grab at things you give him and instantly pulls them to his mouth!

Our Visit to Santa

We took Jaxon to see Santa for Family Home Evening on Monday night. His face lit up when he say Santa's Village (I must say it was beyond INCREDIBLE... this santa's village was AMAZING!) He was running all the way through it and then he turned a corner and came face to face with Santa... and Jaxon come to a dead stop... and refused to even look at Santa. We tried to coax him and even bribe him to see Santa but it wasnt working, so we stepped aside and let Jaxon watch other kids get there picture taken first. It took about 30 mins but we finally got him to sit next to Santa... I think the picture turned out great... besides Jaxons crazy short Hiked up pants.

What Jaxon Sees

Jaxon got his very first camera the other day! He loves it and takes pictures all the time. We thought we'd share some of his great shots!

Jaxon and Owen are already best buddies! Owen just lights up when Jaxon is around and Jaxon can't wait for Owen to grow so they can play together. Jaxon is always talking to Owen and holding his hand and giving him hugs and smooches. So when Amanda saw these shirts she just had to get them!

Happy Boy

Owen has got to be the happiest baby ever! He has been sleeping through the night for about 2 weeks now. He goes to bed at 9pm and wakes up at 6:30am. Its pretty sweet. And he is always full of smiles and loves talking to people. We are pretty lucky and we love him lots!

Owen is Born!

This morning at 6:37, Amanda and I welcomed our second son, Owen Kristoffer Pisko, into the world. He is 7lbs 12.5 oz, and 20.5" long. He has a full head of hair just like Jaxon did when he was born. I think he looks a lot more like me than Jaxon did, but everyone says he looks a lot like Jaxon when he was born. Speaking of Jaxon, here is a picture of Jaxon holding his new baby brother and just brimming with pride at the hospital. I think Jax is going to be a great big brother.

Amanda had a short labour (4 hours start to finish), but it was intense. Luckily she was able to get an early discharge from the hospital, and we were able to bring Owen home tonight. I personally think Amanda will be able to get more rest here at home than at the hospital. She was in a shared room with another mother and baby, so either Owen or the other baby would be up every few hours to feed, not to mention the nurses coming in every few hours, and just the general noise of the hospital. At least here at home I'm around and grandma is around to help out with things around the house and with Jaxon.

One thing we did with Jaxon was that we gave him a stuffed animal the day he was born, that has been his best friend throughout his life. Trevor is the name of the monkey we gave Jaxon. For Owen, we gave him a stuffed Elephant that Amanda has named Jasper. (Amanda has taken to naming all of the stuffed animals in the house. I can never remember which animal has with name, but Amanda and Jaxon seem to remember.) So here is Owen getting to know his new best friend Elephant

Owen snuggling up to his mom after filling his belly with formula. I saw a onsie at the mall the other day with a saying on it that said, "I drink 'till I pass out"... seems to fit really well with newborn babies.

I have some time off work to help out with the baby, and will try to post more pictures of Owen soon.

Preparing for baby

We really want Jaxon to be excited about having a new little brother so Amanda has been really trying to keep him involved in the whole preparing process. So she went and bought him a onsie to decorating with fabric markers to give to the new baby. He had so much fun!

Here is the finished product.

Jaxon's Jungle Room

So here is the start of Jaxon's Jungle Room. It's going to be Blue and Green and filled with animals because Jaxon is an animal himself. There is a monkey growth chart on the wall and safari animals on his closet. Amanda is still looking for some really Cute animal prints to frame and hang above his bed.
