Owen turned 10 months on the 9th! The next day was a Saturday, and BYU had a basketball game, so of course he's wearing his new BYU hoodie (thanks to Becca!). He loves the Cougs. Doesn't he look so grown up?
10 Month info:
Weight: 18 lbs. 2 oz. (15th percentile)
Height: 29" (80th percentile)
He now pulls up on everything, and is also cruising. Last week on Sunday he climbed up ALL the stairs. He loves to brush his teeth. He especially loves his dad. He has 3 1/2 teeth, two bottom and one and a half top. Sadly, He only takes one nap now.
I can't believe he's only two months away from a year! Crazy.

We've been seeing a lot of this lately. Owen pulls himself up on EVERYTHING, and has also started to walk along the couch or the TV stand. In fact, two days ago he climbed the first step! This picture was actually his very first time to pull himself up, and I'm glad I captured it. He's growing up way too fast, but I'm really trying to cherish everyday. We sure do love him.
(This is also the last of the pictures I took on my camera before it died...so their may not be many posts for a while.)

Our costume was also thanks to Annie. She bought Owen the skeleton onesie and gave it to me before he was even born. At the time I didn't think Halloween would ever come, nor did I think I would ever have a baby that big...alas, Halloween has come, and he is indeed that big. So here we are, nurse and Dr. Pickett with our patient.

Also I finally bought batteries for my camera. Hooray!! In honor of that, I checked out a photography book from the library to learn how to maximize the quality of pictures from my point-and-shoot. Hopefully you'll see an improvement in my photography from here on out.
A classic Owen face.

Casey turned 25 a week ago (the 14th). A quarter of a century...pretty significant. :) To celebrate we had a carrot cake and went to see Aladdin at the 5th avenue theatre in Seattle. I sure do love this man. He's amazing, and here's why:

It started off at Ivar's for fish and chips. There's nothing like Seattle fish and chips.
We fed french fries to the seagulls. Here's a sweet action shot.
I feel like only in a big city like Seattle would you see zebra and argyle in the same outfit.
Next we went for a walk, heading for Pike Place market.
We took the stairs.
We found a great little gelato place that had pretty sweet flavors like rhubarb and chocolate orange chip. So good.
Then we ended the day at the gas works park. All in all a wonderful day. We love Seattle. Thanks Dad for showing us a good time.

A certain computer scientist has designed a remarkable machine which gives a correct answer to any yes no question typed into it via its keyboard. The machine answers by flashing a blue or a yellow light, one of the colors signifing "yes", the other "no". The machines come with no instructions nor are the lights labeled. Worse, a given machine in stores now has equal probability of having been manufactured in either China or Malaysia, and it is known that the two different countries have selected opposite conventions for which color means yes, but it is not at present known which country signified yes by blue, and which signified yes by yellow. You have just unpacked a machine, plugged it in, and turned it on. Each of the choices below is a separate question. In other words, in answering (d), assume you have not tried any of the questions appropriate for (a), (b), (c) - in other words, assume in each case you are going to ask only one specific question, and have asked no questions previously. (a) What one yes/no question could you ask the machine which would allow you to determine whether it was made in China or Malaysia? (b) Suppose instead of wanting to know which country your specific machine was manufactured in, you just want to know whether it was the Chinese or Malaysian machine that means "yes" by blue. What single yes/no question could you ask your machine to determine this? (c) Suppose all you want to know is, for your specific machine, which color means "yes" and which color means "no" (d) What yes/no question is such that the machine, no matter what country it is manufactured in, is bound to answer by flashing yellow?
