Owen's Outfits

Owen had his four month doctor's appointment the other day, where we learned that at 19.3 pounds and 29.5 inches, he is in the 100th percentile for height and the 98th percentile for weight.  In other words, he is a fast-growing big galoot, and as such, he tends to outgrow his outfits quickly.  His grandfather commented that he seems to wear a different outfit in each picture he sees, and whereas that is not close to true, I do try to make a point of taking a picture when I put him in something new, in case the next time we put it on he is bursting at the seams.

So here is Owen looking like a little man in nice cords and a plaid shirt from Martha's husband Gordy's Aunt Lois.  Owen looks a lot like his cousin Henry in this picture!:

Here Owen is wearing a meta-monster outfit from Sean's cousin, Kyle and his family.  This outfit came complete with monster socks and bib, as you can see in the second picture below.

Apparently monsters cannot keep their feet still, so I wasn't able to get a good shot of the three monster toes on each feet, plus the fact that the socks say "Rawr!" on the bottom with treads:

Ever economical, Owen is here wearing a hand-me-down turtleneck from his cousin Henry:

And here he wears a lovely sweater outfit from Aunt Martha, which came complete with a matching hat that has bear ears!

He likes to wear his football shoes with this outfit.  They are comfy and go with everything!

Here is Owen with his giraffe, Sophie, and wearing a cute overall outfit that he received as a gift when his cousin Morgan visited.  Martha the anthropology major was able to figure out that Morgan is Owen's second cousin twice removed.  Or in layman's terms, she is the daughter of Sean's nephew.  Owen only gets to visit with Sophie on his changing table, since Dorothy has become obsessed with the giraffe, and it is not safe for Sophie to descend to a lower berm.

Sometimes Owen likes to hide from the paparazzi by wearing his Aunt Susan's sunglasses.  All of those flashing lights bother a handsome fellow's eyes:

Wearing a moose onesie!

Just another boy in a hoodie:

And here he is in an old favorite--his guitar footed onesie that zips instead of snaps, making it easy for quick diaper changes.

His granny and grandfather sent him a crab onesie which is also a favorite.  Owen looks good in navy blue and who doesn't like a crab motif?!  Here he is happy in the crabby suit:

Owen drools a lot these days due to some impending teeth.  We thought maybe a terry cloth outfit might soak up some of the excess fluids that tend to course down his front.  Here he is in a terry cloth raccoon onesie complete with raccoon on the tuckus and raccoons on the feet:

Chillin' in plaid.  An adorable outfit that is killer to put on, because it doesn't button all the way down, so really requires that the wearer have double jointed elbows to get the arms in the sleeves....  Owen does not have double jointed elbows.

And monkey feet!

Here Owen is sporting a green-cotton turtle outfit, that I believe his Aunt Martha sent him when he was still in utero.  Always thinking ahead!

And here is Owen in one I call his Band Camp outfit, and what some of my family members have pointed out is his Great Grandpa Ernie outfit (Ernie had a reputation for mixing stripes and plaids and spots.)  The vest is from Gordy's Aunt Lois and Uncle Harvey, but let it be said that they did not suggest I match it with stripes!

And the outfit gets even busier when you pan down to the feet.  Even Owen is horrified!:

And last but not least, getting an afternoon snooze in his plaid parka, which he has now worn once and will hopefully be able to wear again before it is too small.  Let it be noted that the zipper was already a little hard to zip up over the thunder thighs and ample belly.
