Owen, Owen, Owen, you are getting so big, talking a ton, and listening to everything the people around you are saying. We’ve realized a few weeks ago that Owen is really good at repeating what he hears. We now need to be really careful what we say around him. He is also hitting when he gets frustrated or tired. We need to work on that as well.
Owen has now had 4 ear infections, and this last one was really bad – his ear was oozing out. I felt so bad when we went to the doctors and he said it was a really bad one. He has been on medication for it, and it had seemed to clear up, but this evening he said that his ear hurt again. Unfortunately this seems to be a trend every few months and we will need to go for a follow up and make sure it has been cleared up. We’ll have to see what our next steps are.
Friday was Owen’s last day at Little Dreamers Big Believers (his old daycare). We picked him up while he was still napping to leave town for a trip to Pittsburgh. I felt bad that he couldn’t really say bye to his friends, but we got a few numbers for playdates. His friends made him an adorable dog book, and his teachers put together all of his pictures and they made him a going away sign. It was hard to leave on Friday, and we’ll miss the teachers.
Yesterday was Owen’s first day at the new daycare, and he seems to be doing well with it. He was very cautious walking in and started to play, but once Tony left Owen started to cry. When I picked him up his teachers said that he was doing well, and that he was participating too. I think we were more nervous than he was on Monday morning. Now that it is Tuesday I am feeling a little relief, and I think we made the right choice.
If you are looking for a sweet healthy snack I made oatmeal raisin peanut butter bites last week and they are nice to have on hand to satisfy your sweet tooth.
