Turning ONE

Baby Brother turned one today...


It is hard to believe this was a year ago today...


Dr. Keller delivered Owen Patrick Murphree at 1:41 pm...and he stole our hearts that very instant!  He has his brother and sister wrapped around his finger {the feeling is mutual}!  I love how they are so close and protective of each other.

Owen quickly learned to roll with the flow...he had to being the youngest of the bunch.

He eats anything he is offered...

Garbage Disposal

...and if you are eating, you better be willing to share!

He sleeps when and where he can...


...last Friday afternoon he caught a quick cat nap in a chair in the den while Banks and Mary Reese were {loudly} playing the Wii.

Today he had his 1 year check up which included a lead test {since our house was built in 1924} and 3 shots.  He took the lead test like a champ but wasn't a huge fan of the shots.  All the nurses told me I was mean for making the appointment on his actual birthday.  Dr. Khouri even gave me the option of doing the shots on a different day.  But I was the mean, mean mommy who made him get them anyway!  His stats...

Weight - 24 pounds, 6 ounces
Length - 30 ¾ inches

{For comparison - Banks weighed 5 ounces less and was ¾ inches shorter at this point in his life.  Mary Reese was 4 pounds, 5 ounces smaller but measured the exact same.}

After his check-up, Nanny Nan treated him to...

Fred Flinstone Feet

...his first pair of shoes!  He has the same Fred Flinstone double-wide feet as Banks {perfect because shoe shopping for extra-wide feet is SO easy}!

Tonight after gymnastics, baseball practice and dinner at church I treated him to...

Big Cupcake

...a giant cupcake!  He dug in like a professional...

Digging in

After a few seconds we got smart and stripped him down to his diaper...

All for me?


Shoving it in

Loving it

He thought he was hysterical.  I think he could have won a cake eating contest for babies...seriously!

Couldn't you just eat this face up?

Cake Eater

After he devoured his cake, we headed straight to...

Hose Down

...the bath for a hose down, scrub down!

Happy 1st Birthday, Owie!

Happy (belated) Birthday, Owen! I wish I could have enjoyed that cake like you dug in like a champ! :)

Happy late bday, Owen! It cracks me up that he weighs 26 lbs; Carter weighs 29! Guess we better get to feeding that boy!

OOPS...that was a typo! He is only 24 pounds, 6 ounces!
