Owen and Markers...

I really should learn...dont turn my back on Owen. He is the sneakiest kid I have ever known! He never stops amazing me. So here is the story. The boys go these super cool Thomas the Train coloring pads. They just love them. So one rainy day we pulled them out and they sat at the counter coloring away. (Owen will do anything that Jaxon wants to do!) 
Look how nice they are coloring together!

Jaxon has been working hard at holding a marker the correct way. he always really tries to stay in the lines now. He is so grown up!
So to continue the story... I was sitting with Owen supervising the marker coloring time. I have not forgotten what he did to my kitchen table. Owen was doing great. He colored on the counter once but I caught him and he seemed really upset by the mistake. So he was back on the paper doing great. Staying on the paper, even putting the lids back on the markers... So I had a thought... yeah I know bad move... I decided Id leave owen to color with Jaxon and Id walk the whole 5 feet to the sink and do some dishes. I made a point of turning around and checking up on him every time I washed a dish. he was still sitting there coloring the paper... after about 6 dishes I realized something... he was still using the same colored marker.That is really rare! Just has I realized that Jaxon goes "OWEN WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!?!" Owen acts all surprised and I look closer... he was colored all over the barstool and his leg... awesome. Apparently he was watching me and would color on everything but the paper while my back was turned and then continue coloring the paper when I turned... nice eh? What kind of 2 yr old does that!?!?!

Oh so proud isnt he?!

At least the barstools are dark colored... I think I got all the marker off... at least all that shows!

Welcome to the Terrible Twos!

 Owen had his birthday a little while ago... ok almost a month a go... I figured it was time I blog about it. In case I havent mentioned it before; Owen loves trains, particularly Thomas the Train. So it was only natural that we have a Thomas the Train party. It was so fun! Since Mama and Papa werent going to be able to make it to Owens party they gave Owen his present early.
He worked so hard on getting it open

It's a big stuffed Thomas! Owen was thrilled. He is always wanting to take his trains to bed with him and now he can! The extra bonus it has a huge tag! (another one of owens loves) so now he snuggles beside thomas everynight and plays with the tag. Good Times!

I just did a simple cake for Owens party... but he did get two new trains out of the deal. Ferdenand is the blue one and Victor is the Red one

I sure do love my two year old!!! where has the time gone???

Transition time

The last few weeks Owen has been trying really hard to not nap. So at first I thought he was ready to give up napping... but then at 5:00 pm when I was cooking dinner Id always find him snoozing somewhere. Awesome... then since he naps so late it makes it a late night... boooo... I now have two options I can either not make dinner at 5:00 so I can keep grouchy pants awake... or I need to really enforce 2 pm nap time! I really hate this transition time, not only because it makes for some unpleasent evenings but also because it means that soon my 2 yr old will not be napping at all.... hooray.  Im sure come winter time when he is no longer outside running around and soaking up the sunshine that he will be completely done napping....

Good thing this kid is so darn cute!

Owen can sleep anywhere at 5pm is seems.... I had folded up his little napping couch so that he wouldnt have a place to crash.... but he made it work anyways...
