The Kids Club
Dan and I both have a membership to 24 Hour Fitness, and one of the great things about it is their Kids Club. For $20 a month we get unlimited daycare (up to 2 hours per workout) for kids 6 months and older. The day Owen turned 6 months, I bought the KC membership and we’ve been going, well, not every day since, but enough for the attendants to know Owen and I by name now. We go to the Pearl location because, as Dan likes to put it “it feels like home there”. With the employees knowing us by name and seeing Owen and getting so excited to see him, it really does feel like home. I think Owen really likes it there too. He gets to play with other kids and really seems to like the attendants. We were waiting for the KC to open the other day, and Owen was super excited. He loves to watch all the people working out and looking at all the TVs lol.

Unrelated to Owen, that same day as we were leaving we saw a Bugatti! First time I’ve seen one in person!


Ever since Owen has started solids, he has always grabbed for the spoon and tried to “help”. Lately he seems really adamant to feed himself though! So after I fed him oatmeal the other morning, I washed the bowl and spoon and gave it to him to practice with.

He actually used them pretty well, even though he looked like the Beast in that one scene in Beauty and the Beast where he’s trying to use a spoon for the first time lol

Seriously, that’s what it would have looked like if there were oatmeal actually in the bowl 😉


I don’t know what you call this, but Owen started doing this yesterday. He gets on his hands and knees, then proceeds to get on his feet. He just stays in that position and rocks a little then gets back on his belly and does it over again. It’s crazy how one day he will all of a sudden start doing something (like this). He sure is a busy body and loves to scoot around, he seriously will not sit still, unless Dan’s holding him (he loves Daddy!!)…I’m just wondering what it’s going to be like once he starts walking. 😐
