And The Time Has Flown So Quickly As To Be Unbelievable

Oh, it's a gloomy day and Mr. Moon and I are feeling every one of our years and everything just seems overwhelming BUT.

Today is Owen's birthday and just for fun, if you want, go back and read

this where you'll find Owen's birth announcement.

And then maybe


Where you'll find pictures of his first day on earth.

Like this one.

Which is just about my favorite picture on earth.

Well, except for this one.

Or, you know, you could go look 

here  where you'll find pictures like this one which, okay, maybe is my real favorite.

Oh hell. They're all my favorites. 

How can he have grown this much in four years? 

It is the way of it. In four short years he has grown to be such a big boy, is a loving big brother, can carry on a very real conversation, and along with Gibson, is the joy of my life. 

Lily just posted a picture of him on Facebook. Here it is.

Happy birthday, Owen The Strong, Owen The Funny, Owen The Beautiful.

You are loved.
