The World According to Owen

Owen is a demonstrative child. At 2 1/2 months, he shows many of the characteristics that he did in utero. He kicks, punches, and squirms. As such, we have learned that we shouldn't try to confine Owen, not to a car seat or a swaddled blanket or in general anywhere he isn't getting attention.

Wide-eyed is the normal mode of operation for him. He stays up during the day while brother sleeps and makes sure Mom stays up with him. He is dramatic with his outbursts, but he is becoming more predictable in his remedies. Usually a pacifier calms him down, and sometimes relaxes him to sleep. If not, holding him is often a fix. And when all else fails, get him outside for a walk around the block with Tucker -- a guarantee to calm him down.

Alert little Owen. This picture sums him up at this stage.
