This precious soul made me a momma. I have learned so much from him and for him. This time five years ago I was laboring in the hospital. My water had broken at about 1:30am and he was born at about 3:31 pm. He was 7 lbs 9 oz and 21 inches long. He had no hair but he was the most beautiful baby boy.
Owen has always been a tenderhearted little man. He has been very teachable (minus naps & bedtimes - we had a few rough ones with that). Owen asked Jesus to come into his heart on October 29 of this past year. One of the sweetest moments is being able to be a part of your children's salvation. He was struggling with being a happy boy because he was quite tired from the day. I had asked what he needed to do (thinking he would apologize); he followed it up with "I need to ask Jesus into my heart". Tony and I dropped what we were doing and slowly (rushing) went over to him and asked a few questions to be sure he understood it. He bowed his head and Tony was able to help him ask Jesus into his heart. We had prayed for that since before he was born, and are so thankful God answered that prayer.
Here are a few photos from Owen's first 5 years of life. I am wishing it would slow down or that he would just stay 5 forever, but I know God has an amazing plan for this sweet boy. I pray we guide and teach him the best we can so someday he fulfills this plan. We love you little buddy. Thanks for being our best friend and the best son anyone could ask for. We pray we are our best for you and your baby sister. Owen is the sweetest big brother ever!!!!
PS: my photography career started as a result of Owen and wanted to capture his moments growing up, so no judgement on the first few years's photos. ha ha ha ha ha
