Thinking about Owen makes me smile. One of the things that made Owen happiest was making other people laugh and smile. He had such a sweet giggle-would double over laughing, his belly and cheeks shaking. Hearing him laughing was infectious...you couldn't help but be happy when you were around him.
One of the things I used to say to Owen was that if I had every single Owen in the whole world and every 4 1/2 year old in the whole world in the same room, he would still be my favorite one. One of the last videos I have of Owen awake and talking is one of my favorites...He was speaking slower, and taking longer to process what was being said to him. I asked him, "Owen, who is my favorite Owen in the whole world?" I was about ready to fill in the answer for him because I wasn't sure if he was going to or not, and he spoke up and said "me..." It made me so happy to hear that he still knew that he was my favorite Owen, as he always will be!!
Miss you, Frogger!
