We decided Owen had his BEST WEEKEND EVER. He was super happy, smiling, and giggling all weekend long. He's wiggling all over, reaching for toys, and rolling onto his tummy to get closer to things. Even though he had terrible naps on Sunday, we couldn't get over how happy our kiddo was.Recently, Owen has decided that he loves, loves, loves being anywhere near the dog. He will contort his neck to keep Hudson in view while eating or just moving from room to room. And if the dog is moving around, oh man! Owen gets all giggly and starts flapping his arms and stomping his feet. Unfortunately, Hudson is pretty afraid of Owen and will only approach him for a fly by licking on his own terms. We're working with Hudson to increase his comfort level. Scott keeps telling him that Owen is here to stay and will soon be chasing him all over the house - poor dog.
Pure bliss - the dog got close enough to touch.
On other pet news: Owen got into his first fight with the cat last week - the cat won. Owen was grabbing Cisco all over, and the cat finally had enough and stuck a claw in Owen's scalp. Not a happy incident. At least Scott and I were both in the room, so we shared equal guilt in letting it happen. Although our cats are both extremely tolerant, we have no illusions that these were Owen's last scratches. Such is life with living pets.
