6: HOPES & DREAMS | MOMMY'S WISHES FOR ME | My baby, my son, my precious prince who was sent straight from Heaven and loved ever since. A gift from God to handle with care blessed with a heart of gold for you to share. A smile so big with such happiness and joy, the pride I have, to be blessed with such a good little boy. To love someone so much, I never knew I could. The things I do for you, for no one else I would I wish I could be with you every second of the day, but I can't be selfish, things just can't go my way. I wish I could protect you from anyone hurting your golden little heart. So many things I want to tell you, but don't know where to start. People will tell you a lot of things son, and only some of them will be true. Which ones you want to believe my boy, I know you will be smart enough to choose. So I'm going to do my best to make you strong my son, so you can choose right from wrong. I know it seems I'm going on and on, but these things I just don't want you to forget, Life is full of lessons baby never hold any regrets. Most importantly though, Mommy will always love you.
7: DADDY'S WISHES FOR ME | My son, Every day of my time with you, I have tried to live my life as an example of the man I hope you will be someday. Remember that a person's life is shaped by the little choices they make every day as much as it is by the big decisions like what you will do for a career or where you will live. The little choices that you make, the small and overlooked ones, such as what you'll have for lunch or how you treat your friend, will have a cumulative effect, one so powerful that it can limit or even eliminate your options in a big decision you want to make.. I wish that you will remember that relationships are what life is all about. If you have good ones, then even if everything else in your life goes bad, you will still be ok. I hope you find the people that are honest, loyal, gracious, patient and show compassion and wisdom.and make these people your closest friends. I wish for you a life filled with love and adventure, and never forget what truly matters in life. On the day you were born, I was the first to hold you after the doctor and nurses were done. I consider that a great honor. I know that I would move heaven and earth to protect you from harm. Just remember your Daddy loves you always.

22: SPECIAL MEMORIES | The first time you took a plane ride was to visit your great-grandparents in Illinois. Much to everyones surprise you did really well on the trip. At six weeks old, you were already a seasoned traveler! | At your first hockey game, we were worried the noise would be too loud for you. We were wrong. From the beginning of the game, you watched and have been watching ever since. | When you were about two months, we took you to a park to take family pictures. After having fun in the park, we went to the lake beach where you played in the sand and squished the sand all through your toes.
23: Grandpa Throndsen gave you a blessing when you were three months old. He blessed you with the strength and courage to do what is right and do well in life. | The Bumbo Chair! You loved sitting in this chair. When we would put you in this chair, anything within your reach would be swiped away.

32: SPECIAL MEMORIES | At Christmas, your Aunt Susie bought you a Santa outfit, however you did not want to wear it. You cried almost the entire time we had it on you. You were just too adorable with the beard and hat! | In December 2010, we had a couple of snow storms come through our town. This is the first time you had ever seen snow. It was so chilly outside so we bundled you with lots of coats and mittens and the monster hat. You loved knocking the snow off. our cars. | For the longest time, you did not like mommy and daddy taking your pictures, so you would make a mean face whenever you saw the camera, even if you were just laughing right before..
33: Grammy Pat sent up these reindeer ears for Christmas. To celebrate and have fun, daddy put the ears on you. Everyone got a kick out of how cute you were in them. | On most Friday nights we hang out with Uncle Cola and Aunt Lisa and little Savannah. Aunt Lisa and mommy were trying to get a picture of the two of you and miss Savvy fell over into your lap. You didn't know what to do.
34: You have grown so fast and learned to sit on your own by five months. From then there was no stopping you. | We knew it was time to start feeding you real food when you would grab at our forks and try to eat what we were eating.

36: SPECIAL MEMORIES | From birth you never liked baths. It was not until you could sit up good enough that you liked being in the bathtub. Once you learned how to splash, mommy and daddy would get soaked every night. | Mr. Grumpy Pants made an appearance every once in a while. This day he didn't want to have anything to do with anyone except your Grandpa Throndsen when we were up there visiting. | Whenever your cousin Corey comes around, he likes to take pictures of you. This day was one of the first warm days of spring. Corey took you outside and got a very cute picture.
37: Mommy and Daddy love taking you everywhere with them. We are always on the go with you right beside us. During winter, we had this cover to go on your carseat that we could zip you up in. On really cold days we would pull the cover over you and hide you from the wind. | Many meals and piano time were spent in your highchair. You loved being able to be at our level and see all that we were doing.

45: You were once very shy around the camera, however the more you grew up, the more you became a ham. ! At Easter, we had gotten you a little suit to wear, but the shirt was too small so we left it unbuttoned.. . You looked like a mini-Saturday Night Fever actor. In the beginning of May 2011, we went out to a field of flowers and had our pictures taken as a family. You were not too sure about being set in the weeds.
46: Instructions on How to Crawl by Jeffrey Silverburg: One weekend, we went over to Jeffrey's grandma's house. While we were there you and Jeffrey were sitting on the floor jabbering at each other. Little did we know at the time, he was telling you how to crawl. Not even two days after that visit, you decided to crawl. We haven't been able to keep up with you since.
49: Great-grandma Angela (G-g) came to visit you for the first time in May of 2011.

We knew you would love it. | G-g's Visit

71: So in honor of your Dinosaur Train birthday theme, Mommy and your cousin Alex made a Buddy the dinosaur cake for you. Even though you did not like the frosting too much, you still had lots of fun at the party.
72: As if by instinct you knew what to do with your presents. With help from Daddy, you opened every one. You got trucks, books, balls, and dinosaurs that talk to each other! And then you got two very special toys you like a lot....you got your first speed racer (Lightning McQueen and a little red wagon. When we pulled out the car, your little face lit up slowly until you finally realized what it was you had. A smile creeped up your face until you could think of no other thing to do but drive your own car. Then when you finally had a chance to try out the wagon, it took a long time to convince you to come back out, and it has been that way since.
73: You are loved by many people. Everyone came from near and far to celebrate this day with you. Even though you may not have liked the singing the first time, we want to say.... "Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Owen -- Happy Birthday to you"
