is different and new for us. We keep thinking we will get the hang of this parenting thing then another day comes along when I eat breakfast at noon and shower closer to bedtime. But one thing hasn't changed. We love our little man. He has changed our lives for the better. We still love to take pictures of him and since he started smiling that has become our goal in life. Sadly Barrett is ahead if it were ever to become a race. His little boy lights up when he is around!
Owen is starting to look more grown up, especially with his recent hair loss:) He is starting to look more like Grandpa Ball every day!! He is sporting the comb over but he is lucky to have a little new hair under the super long stuff!

This isn't something we get to see very often but it sure is nice when it happens!!

Here are some new pictures of our little man. We tried many times to get some pictures taken of him when he was tiny. We waited because we were lazy and he was hairy. He was about a month old when we finally took the time to get them done. I have an awesome talented friend and we just headed over to her studio and played. We had fun but I'm not sure Little Owen loved it. I only posted the happy ones here. Freak outs saved for blackmail.

My little brother has some super cute kid pictures with a small stuffed animal. That's what we were going for in this one.

Yeah he hates me right now....

What are you looking at?

Check out that baby double chin

This is our cute little bear. Minus the hair:)

He already has to taste everything. I don't think we will have a hard time feeding this one.

Thanks for looking at our cute little guy. We'll keep posting way cute pictures because for some reason I can't stop taking them!!

Owen's Blessing Day

Wow, what a crazy good day!! We decided to bless Owen in spite of many disturbances to our plans. We had a wonderful day and we missed those who weren't able to be with us. The little man was so good during the blessing he didn't even sqeak or grunt which he is getting good at. Barrett gave him a wonderful blessing and we were all emotional for the rest of the day. I'm always emotional but this was a new one for Barrett. We had a delicious meal with some real Texas brisket and I might be dreaming about it for awhile. When we tried to get pictures of the little guy he was sound asleep and we all agreed after the fact that they looked like casket pictures!! I'm not quite sure how that happened!! He sure is a cute guy and we wouldn't trade him for anything.

The Ball family in action. We are so glad that everyone could make it and enjoy our day with us!!
