Thanksgiving 2011, or, Owain is 4 Months Old!

My Thanksgiving in Kalamazoo with my husband’s family was full of great food, late night board games, trips to such wonderful establishments as Chocolatea, Confections with Convictions, and the Kalamazoo Nature Center, but it was mostly full of THIS:

Yes folks, that is Owain, our smiling 4-month-old nephew! You’ll remember O from his 4-week-old photoshoot, and from his time on the inside with gorgeous mama Gwenn (here and here). O was definitely the star of Thanksgiving!

Things we know about Owain: he likes to wear stripes; he is very vocal; he eats a lot; he loves bath time; he likes looking out windows; he loves going for rides in his stroller; he is cute. AND he likes the dinosaur hat I knitted him!

O is a good sport and handles being dragged all over town very well. We all especially loved Chocolatea with their gorgeous walls of loose leaf teas, and their awesome tea car outside:

(This last one is Chocolatea again, plus a very scary pumpkin still surviving from Halloween.)

Owain also enjoyed a quick trot about the Kalamazoo Nature Center. We even found the Williams family brick!

One of the perks of being the first grandchild, nephew/niece, kid in general is, everyone wants a piece of you! This kid did not go hungry for attention:

It was a wonderful holiday, made all the better because of this little face:

(And Tyler, too, helping me test my light!)

I hope all of your holiday weekends were as good as mine!
