2010! What a Year!
We announced to the world that O'Baby O'Brien was on his or her way!
I had a super 28th b-day.
Ryker ate his dog house that Joe just finished..blah.
The Groundhog saw blue - O'Boy O'Baby O'Brien made his presence know, and the elusive quest for a name began!
It snowed glorious, beautiful snow!
We made a quick 11-hr road trip to NM to say goodbye to Joe's Grandpa O'Brien. He was a wonderful father and grandpa, and we miss him very much.
I got to take a trip to Palestine to see my buds, Lydia and Caleb and finally get to see the blooming Dogwoods.
My sister and I enjoyed all the beautiful flowers at the Dallas Arboretum!
Not much to report in this month...just making it through pregnancy and taking pictures of the cutest dog ever.
Enjoyed another month, but so tired of being pregnant.
Had a beautiful shower with family and friends to celebrate still unnamed O'Baby!
Finished the nursery with the help of neighbors and Joe's wonderful mom -- complete with custom dresser that was NOT from Pottery Barn!
Read some books, celebrated Jennifer's bday, and did some other wonderfully interesting stuff that I can't quite seem to recall!
I had a fight with the vaccum cleaner, and at 9 months pregnant, that's NOT what you want.
We found out that O'Baby was a wee bit on the large side, and we decided to schedule and induction.
Owen Daniel O'Brien (who's name was decided when we saw him) was born June 15th at 3:05 p.m. after a hard delivery.
We then went through a little health scare with Owie and he hung out a bit in the NICU.
Joe's Grandpa Williams passed away after a long health battle, but not before getting to see a video and pictures of his first great-grandson, and gave a great smile.
The rest of the month, was a blur...
Owen grew and changed so much in one month
On July 4th, he celebrated his first holiday!
We began to adjust to a family of 4...yes, I count Ryker.
Ryker turned 3
We celebrated our brothers-in-law's birthdays
We watched Owen grow!
My dear friend Lydia welcomed her second son, James Elliot, into the world. (and all our hearts grew 3 sizes that day!)
Owen learned to flip over - something he doesn't like to do anymore
I confessed to the world that I ran into a van while trying to read and ride a bike
My friends, Hillary and Jeremy, took some beautiful photos of our family, which I will forever cherish that we got back this month!
We visited the pumpkin patch with the O'Bear and the Colvins.
Owen got cuter and fell in love with jumping in his bouncer
We celebrated Thanksgiving with the O'Brien Family
Owen turned 6 months
We prayed for Sweet Baby James and his family as he underwent heart surgery
We celebrated Christmas in Kingwood with the O'Bear
We celebrated Christmas #2 and New Years in Coppell with the O'Briens
We fell more in love with our son!
Here's to a new year and new adventures! Cheers!
