All of my ROTM’s have been unique and distinct from each other but yet, maybe it’s time for something a little different. Something to break the monotony of all those…adults. I’ve always said this was a family blog and as though to back up my words, our ROTM for November doesn’t stop his new Mom from reading and commenting on J-Ball (although, she now does so at obscenely early hours), and as you know, these two activities are the very definition of ROTMititude. So it’s time to give him the credit he so richly deserves.

Yes, it’s adorable Baby Owen, son of Jan. Now, Jan never wanted to be ROTM but since we’re highlighting her progeny, I should say that Jan titled the plethora of photos she sent me with way more brilliant names than I could ever come up with, so I’m going to keep all of them. This one is called Binkie Face. Indeed.

This one, for instance, is called Smushyface1. That’s because it’s from the Smushyface series. It was a tough job choosing, but I think this one is stellar.

Anyway, more about Baby Owen. I haven’t met Owen yet, but I understand his favorite activities include eating all the time (just like Mom!), burping & throwing up (especially at Mommy & Me class), and peeing all over Mom & Dad during diaper changes. Mom & Dad are working on this issue and hope to have it resolved before Owen turns ten.

This picture speaks for itself, doesn’t it? I really thought of calling Children’s Services on the Jan Family after I saw this. The torture of putting a poor innocent child in this get-up!

To be fair, there was another picture where Baby Owen looks perfectly content in the same outfit, but you know, that’s for some other blog.

Lastly but not leastly, I think this is the kind of thing that made me phobic of dogs, personally. Oh, I kid, Bailey loves his new brother! Jan called this photo, “What is this thing?” I think that’s what the dog was thinking just before he inhaled Baby Owen.

Anyway, congrats Baby Owen, your cuteness was just too good not to share. And thanks for letting Jan keep on reading the J-Ball. You rule! Check back with me when you’re eating solid foods about that whole meal with Becca thing.

I kid you not, Jan says Baby Owen’s favorite song is:

    Owen is busy having a crying fit, but I’m sure he’ll check out the write-up once he stops screaming. Oh, and once he learns how to read.

    Very cute job πŸ™‚

  3. Soxy says:

    WIth all due respect to all of the former ROTMs, Baby Owen is by far the cutest in Jewball history.

  4. RN says:

    Soxy, I totally agree.

    Owen welcome to the club. See you in Milan at the ROTM reunion.

  5. Becca says:

    Oh! I forgot to mention the best thing about Baby Owen! He has the same birthday as me. See you in Milan, birthday-twin!

    Wait, the reunion is Milan? No one ever tells me anything.

  6. donniesgirlme says:

    What a sweetheart!
    dgm loves the babies πŸ™‚

    Congrats to the Jan family!

  7. Bailey says:

    Baby tastes surprisingly like chicken.

  8. CSIGirl says:

    Owen is adorable. Congrats again Jan, and congrats to Owen for being ROTM.

    I must agree with Soxy, Owen is by far the cutest ROTM so far.

  9. Alfa says:

    I’d pee on someone, too, if I had to wear that Red Sox get up.

  10. Becca says:

    Oh, Bailey.

  11. Sarpon says:

    I’m so confused. I could have sworn we agreed on naming the kid “Brady.”

  12. Jane says:

    His name was Brady until Jan found out that my boyfriend’s middle name is Owen and it’s the primary reason he grew up to be so hot and geniusy.

  13. culotte says:

    Owen has really cornered the market on that whole smushy face thing, huh?

  14. Becca says:

    Culotte, if you’d like to submit a smushyface picture, I’m happy to post it. The rest of you too.

  15. kay says:

    I love Smushyface! Congrats, Jan, and of course, Baby Owen.

  16. mb says:

    Awwww. He’s so cute.

    I almost got to hold him – GoAway hogged him. I did get to do arm exercises with him in the heavy carrier.

    Carry on, Jan. πŸ™‚

  17. Emeraldmph says:

    I am a huge fan of smushyface.

  18. Jan says:

    Bailey, when did you learn how to type?!

    Thanks, everyone πŸ™‚

  19. Cathy (suby) says:

    Baby Owen just may have exceeded the maximum cuteness allowed by law.

  20. KP says:

    I am proud to share ROTM status with such a cutie pie (not that Soxy and Nerd and the rest of the ROTM aren’t cute and all…). Give him big kisses for me MamaJan!

  21. Sarpon says:

    I came back to admire Owen again and I noticed that we seem to be lacking a full faced, eyes open shot of His Cuteness. Is it possible to get additional ROTM pictures?

  22. Becca says:

    Jan sent me 16 shots and actually, I don’t think any of them fit that description. Oh, Owen, you wacky baby!

  23. Steph says:

    Even though he is not wearing a big green hat and goofy glasses in any of those pictures, I have to agree that he’s the bestest ROTM evah!

  24. twenchi says:

    There is nothing wrong with that sweet baby’s outfit. What baby wouldn’t want to wear a Red Sox uniform.

  25. Becca says:

    This one, clearly.

  26. Seaspray says:

    Awwww. These are great pics– what a cutie.
