Christmas was great. We did a tone of driving but we managed to visit all the family. These are some pictures of Christmas with the Ohnheiser's. My dad, Dina, Grandma, Terri, Reed, Alexis, Tanner and of course Eric and Owen. He got that really big monkey pillow. He rolled off of the pillow a couple minutes after this picture was taken and bonked his little head. I think that it scared him more than anything but he was not happy about it.

One of his first Christmas gifts.

The little outfit that Mam-maw bought him.

Pap-paw and Mam-maw!!

Daddy and Owen big Ranger fans.

Owen's Great Grandma, she loves holding him.

This is the Christmas with the newly Malony family. We spent two days with my Nana (my mom), Gary, Terri, Reed, Alexis, and Tanner. My Momo and Popo came to visit us and baby Owen. He really loved sitting in Grandpa Gary's chair. He was a real big boy.

Happy Baby!!

Big happy family. Had a great Christmas!!

Nana bought a book that she recorded herself reading to Owen.
Christmas with the Barta's. This was the first time Owen traveled to Omi and Opi's house. Plus a bonus Uncle Alan was there. He hadn't had the privilege to meet Owen yet so it was nice for him to meet Owen. We had fun hanging out with Omi, Opi, and Uncle Alan. Owen received a lot of really great books. We have had fun reading them to him already.

Thank you to all our families for having us over and feeding us. We appreciate your hospitality and love. We had a great Christmas with all of you and hope to have many more.

December 28, 2010


What a crazy day. I do believe that Owen is teething. Very fussy, not sleeping, drooling everywhere, gnawing on hands, clothing, but not his chew toys. I had a rough day with him today. Called Eric around 4:00 pm with nothing left. Luckily I got him to fall asleep on my chest for about 30 minutes. I felt like I couldn't get anything done today because after about five minutes he wanted to be picked up or change areas. We tried out every toy he has, and every chair. He played in his crib, on the floor, in his chair, in the bumbo seat, in the swing, in the exersaucer, and on the sofa. I just didn't know what else to do. He just wanted to be held. That is how he ended up falling asleep on my chest.

Hey everyone I am just trying to catch up. Things are finally starting to slow down right in time for our little vacation. That will make things crazy again. Then we have Christmas. Then I start the preschool back up again. Crazy times in the Barta home. I have a couple of great pics of Owen.

December 2, 2010


Wonderful night!!! Owen ate about 8 oz last night from around 6:30 pm till 8:30 pm. Then he slept till 6:45 am this morning. I can't tell you how awesome that is. So this morning was a wonderful morning. Although he was starving this morning. Once I fed him he was the most happy alert baby. He has been laughing and talking all morning. We did tummy time, read a couple of books, floor play, and playing with his seat toy. He started getting tired so I fed him and put him in his seat. Then I accidentally dropped the remote on the floor and I got the evil eye. This kid is so darn cute. He does the funniest things. I don't know how he is sleeping after sleeping for so long last night. I am sure that he is growing. I put a onsie on him this morning and it is getting to short. He is still a little skinny fart but he is getting longer. His head is getting bigger also. This morning when we were doing tummy time he pushed himself up and held his head up. He is doing so great.

December 1, 2010


Well just trying to get back on track. Traveling during the holidays with a new baby is a little difficult and overwhelming. However, we all do it and we all survive. We had a great Thanksgiving with all the families.

Eric's parents came to visit us and I made my first Thanksgiving meal. I must say it turned out quite nice. They were great. They watched Owen while Eric and I went for a walk. It is nice to get a little break every once in a while. Eric's mother really helped me with the Thanksgiving meal. It was a great weekend. It was so nice to be able to be in our own home with all the things we are so used to having right at our finger tips. I will say that we have decided we really need to add on another bedroom downstairs. We need a guest room. Getting a quote tomorrow on closing our garage in and adding a bedroom and bathroom. We will see!!

Thanksgiving day was spent out at the farm with my dad, stepmother, grandmother, and my sisters family. We had a great time. Little Owen got to sit in the tractor with my dad. He will have so much fun at the farm as he gets older. A tree fell because of the high winds and all the boys got to go play with all the toys to clean up the tree. Eric is not much of a farm boy but I think he enjoys getting to go do all the farm stuff. He actually said he could see himself living out in a place like that.

Went from the farm to my mom and Gary's house last weekend. It was nice to see my momo and popo, and my sister and her family came to moms also. The guys played yard darts. I had never heard of that but it looked like fun. We also had a movie night of shriek 3 and monsters ink. Kid friendly fun.

Monday was recovery day. I came down with a clogged breast and have been trying to fight that. Yesterday we did Owens Christmas pictures which he wanted nothing to do with. He looked so annoyed at first, then he got hungry, then he needed his diaper changed and after all that he was to tired to go on. Go figure he just didn't want to strike a pose.
