a view through a lens.

42 1/4″ tall.  Hard to believe, but Owen is five years old today. A wonderful little boy who’s slipped on the role of big brother like a comfortable jacket.  This year was the year of being brave.  With the weight of alway being the first to try things on his shoulders, Owen took on several challenges over the year with bravery.  Whether it was riding his big boy bike, going on rides at Mall of America, or just sleeping in his dark room, Owen took pride in being so brave while his mom and I stood and watched with pride.

Imagination kicked in as well.  Owen loves to build lego machines, draw pictures, and build forts.  He’s growing so independent and it’s fun to watch, but it’s also hard to see him pull away from us.  He’s now perfectly content playing with his toys and games in the evening, so I cherish evey chance we have to cuddle, every wrestling match, every walk to the park.

Owen, on your fifth birthday, I couldn’t be more proud of you.  You don’t know how much joy you bring to this family.  Happy Birthday buddy, enjoy it!

Enjoy some highlights of they year here:
