I honestly wasn't quite prepared this year - usually have cute outfits and such but Owen has thrown us for a loop quite honestly. We waited until the last minute and then scoured our closets for something decent to wear and here it is, folks! This is as good as it gets at this point!
They had the CUTEST setup for new babies. Don't you just love it?
Had to get a pic of all the grandsons together. Joseph was tickled that Owen held his finger!
I tried to get a nice picture with Owen Reid. He would not wake up! Well, until he did. You can see how well little boy cooperated! He was not cool with it.
They also had a new setup with a huge ruler. It was fun to measure them all!
And of course Grandma and Grandpa bought everybody a pumpkin. Here they are with their special chosen pumpkins! They were out of teeny pumpkins so Owen had to settle for a teeny acorn squash. Ha!
So I haven't even blogged his birth yet, but just had to make a quick note so I don't forget his big day. Little man slept in his crib the whole night last night! Yay! He was on Neocate for the first night and slept like a perfect little angel. Such a relief!! Of course today he was difficult, but I'll just focus on the positive. :)
He also cooed today for the first time. Such a sweet, sweet voice he has. He normally just grunts, gurgles from reflux, and cries, so it was so thrilling to hear his precious voice. On top of that he noticed the mobile on the swing for the first time today. As soon as I put him in the swing he looked up at it so I turned it on and he was mesmerized. And to top it all off he had his first visit to the pumpkin patch! Don't know how we ever lived without this little guy as part of our lives!

Wyatt is always there to help me with this little guy. He is the best at holding him during times when he's crying to be held and I'm trying to get stuff ready to get out the door on time. How on earth could I manage this without the older boys to help me?
Noah is absolutely head over heels for his littlest brother! He adores spending time with him on the floor when he's awake. He lays there and has tons of conversations with him and Owen just soaks it up! Noah J has been such a tremendous help to me these last few weeks - fetching stuff, helping with the other kids, doing housework, and keeping this little guy calm when I can't tend to him right away. So, so thankful for both my precious boys!

I think these pics pretty much sum up our first week home! I'm so thankful Owen really loves some Daddy snuggle time in the evenings! And even more thankful Joshua is the type to soak it up, no matter how exhausted he is. Little boy sleeps like this for hours every night! He's a top notch snuggle bug!

The girls were all so cute with their little dolls! They each got to pick their own drink for their teapot and then they brought out trays full of delectable delights just right for a tea party.
Annie of course chose hot chocolate for her teapot! And she was an expert at pouring it from all the practice parties at Grandma's house! Some of the girls ate actual food - cucumber sandwiches, teensy hamburgers, pigs in blanket, fruit kabobs, etc. But my dear girl ate sweets, sweets, and more sweets!
How could you say no to all this cuteness? And to top it all off they brought out some little iced heart-shaped brownies with candles to help her celebrate. We all sang and they got to enjoy a final dose of sugar before exploring the store.
Not surprisingly she says this was her favorite part - looking at all the doll stuff! I think she made a list a mile long!
We had so much fun starting the birthday celebration today! Hard to imagine this little muffin is going to be 4 this weekend! She had a hayday running through the store with her friends saying "come look at this!" Can't wait to finish up the celebration with gifts and dinner with the family this weekend!
