We are BANANAS for Owen!

I don't know where the last two years have gone, but my baby boy...Owen Isaac Ruley turned TWO on Sunday. It is WAY too much for me to think that I no longer have a "baby" in the house. So...I will most likely be referring to him as my "baby" for the rest of his life. Poor guy.
Owen was serenaded by big brother and sisters in his crib and then the festivities began. The best part of all was watching how excited Will, Abby & Ella were to celebrate their baby brother's big day! The above pic is of Will & Abby reading their homemade cards to Owen

Will could NOT wait to give Owen a size 3 Soccer Ball he picked out (and paid for himself - soooo sweet!)

There's Daddy on the T.V.! (You'll see later why I type this, LOL!)

We had a Curious George Party

Just a few of the things Momma Loves Most about You, My Baby Boy:

How you say "no!" when you actually mean "yes"

How much you love food (hmmm...not sure where you get that one!)

Your groovy dancing

The relationship you have with Will...priceless

Your deep, husky voice

How you look like a little boy version of Abby

Your blonde hair that I was sure was going to be a big brown bushel of curls!

Your adoration for any sport involving a Ball

Your big, kissy lips...oh, and those kisses...I can't get enough!

You are a MOST LOVED boy

...a heritage from the Lord, a gift from God (Psalm 127:3)

OMG!! His party looked like a great time...Monkey's I should've guessed! I can't believe out Owie is 2!! He is sooo big and I just love his hugs and kisses! You're right is a male version of Abby! Love you!


P.S. Can you e-mail me the picture of Owie and I?!

Happy, happy, birthday Owie!! He's so gosh darn cute!! Of course, would we expect anything less from the beautiful family??

PS I will always call my kids my babies. In fact, I argue over that with them frequently :)

I just can't get over the MAN IN THE YELLOW HAT. Tee Hee.
Owen is growing up. Seems like time left me behind or something!
By the way, BOO. Check it out on my blog. :)

Wow! How totally perfect down to your darling yellow striped shirt! Looks like another wonderfully done party, my friend! And what an absolutely precious little boy.
