Over the last couple weeks, Owen has taken a pretty impressive interest in occupying himself. In fact, last weekend, we had one of those "too quiet" moments and we found Owen in the living room doing this:
Sure, I still spend most of my day responding to "Mommy, Lesso!" (what sounds like a Spanish command is really just toddler-speak for "Let's Go!), but we've had several recent occasions where Scott and I find ourselves reading the paper, cooking, or puttering around the house without our 2'6" shadow. Owen's also had two (2!) naps, where he doesn't sleep a wink and just spends 45+ minutes happily hanging out in his crib. Taking a nap is still much preferred (and he did zonk out in the car later in the afternoon), but the self entertainment gives me hope that I might be able to feed Baby #2 in semi-peace when the time comes.
