Owen is getting so big! + FO

My nephew, Owen, is getting so big.  I can't get over it!

I had a chance to babysit him in August and he was just adorable!

The dog, Dakota, was on clean up duty of Cheerios.

Owen loves to get kisses from the dog.

Owen had an ear infection so he wasn't feeling well later, but he liked to snuggle and watch baby einsteins.

My sister had some great photos for when he was 11 months in September!

I love this next one, I think he's adorable when he's crying.

There were also some great photos from August for when he was 10 months.

See the blanket? huh huh huh?  :-)  I love that blanket!

I can't believe he's going to be 1 year old in 6 days!  For his birthday, Aunt Sam made him a jacket.

You remember the Owen Hoodie I showed you last WIP Wednesday.  I finished it!

Putting in the zipper was fiddly, but actually not that bad.  I'd do it again.

Pattern: R&R Hoodie
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft in color Autumn Red
Needles:  US 4 - 3.5mm and US 5 - 3.75mm
Time: 2.5 months (I stopped working on it to make Baby Boy Stripes)
Ravelry:  R&R Hoodie for Owen

As soon as I can, I'll post a photo of Owen wearing his hoodie.  My sister actually just sent me a photo of Owen wearing the sweater I made him for his baptism.

He should be able to wear it all winter because it is still a little big on him!

My Boys Toby and Jimmy

I don't think I've told you lately just how cute my puppies are, I mean, seriously, look at them.

They cuddle each other.

Toby has a tendency to sleep upside down.

They are not morning puppies.  They like to sleep in.

Last week, I tried to get a new picture of them for the background on my phone.  It is very hard to get them to both look at me for a photo.

Who knew, that all it took was a whistle?  I will forever keep that in my back pocket!

I just think my pups are so stinking cute!

They snuggle with Dave all the time.  Jimmy has become Daddy's little boy.

We even got a family photo during our engagement photo session (I'll post photos of that later).

It's amazing how they can grab so much of your heart.  Do you have pets that just tug on your heartstrings?

Sam :-D

ETA: fixed last photo
