Grandson Owen

This is Owen sitting in my lap listenig to my heartbeat.
Do you notice the dreamy look on his face?
That is because he is just like his cousin Aden was and he will fall asleep if I lay him on my chest/belly with an ear to my heart. I hope he doesn't outgrow it as fast as she did though.  She caught on quick that laying on Grandpa's chest = nap.

But then my stomach rumbled !

And here he is looking over Grandma's shoulder

This little guy isn't always serious, but it sure is difficult to get a good picture of him smiling, they always end up a little out of focus because he is a little wiggle worm. Of course the fact that my dead camera decided to come back to life with a zombie like existance and only takes about 1 out of 20 good pictures doesn't exactly help much either.

Some of his first solid food...rice cereal.

And more today.

Waiting for the next spoonful,  I think he likes it.

After his cereal I was showing him some of the photos I had taken of him and we were picking out a few for this blog.

He wasn't too happy with some of my choices, especially the almost nude ones with just his diaper on!

So, I let him pick out the ones he wanted to show you.

He was much happier then, and didn't even put up a fuss when Grandma took him for a nap.
Yup, Grandkids ARE the reward for letting your children live.

That first picture is a prize winner. What a handsome boy!
What is it about your family and cameras?? Sheesh. :-)
It sounds like Owen has got a super soft spot for his Grandpa. I like that. :-)

Love it! Love the pics, love the kiddo, love the post. All except that last line...surely you're only referring to Eric Ryan. ;)

Danni: Well, although I am not sure what to say about our luck with cameras, My family does raise some mighty fine looking babys.
And Hey, what's not to love about grandpa? He may be a pretty rough character on the outside, but kids know who has a good heart.

Ang: Well... let's just say that the one with the "PENIS" was NOT the only one of my kids who caused my hair to turn grey and fall out. I think you all conspired against me on that one. You ALL had your hand in it to one degree or another. And that's My story, and I am sticking to it !!!

Awwww, he just keeps getting cuter and cuter! And wow, he sure has grown! Why do they do that so quickly that first year??!

You are one terrific Grandpa as it's plain to see that your Grandkids adore you!
