From the moment I met Matt, Kelly and Owen, which was 7 a.m., they were full of a lightness and ready to play. Well, maybe not so much Owen, but a few tickles and the introduction of tide pools and we were in happy land.
Owen is such an affectionate little guy. He started doing this gesture the family now calls “bonk” where he leans in and gently touches his head to yours and now it’s something he does on request and is quite adorable. You’ll see it in a few of the images.
Owen is paying attention at all times, very inquisitive and friendly, especially when it come to kitty cats. I had the serendipitous please of coffee with these guys the next morning when I swung by Tybean Art & Coffee Bar for my caffeine fix after my morning bike ride. Owen found Bean, the coffee shop mascot, in no time and was ready to be friends. Bean isn’t always in the mood to return the favor, so Owen stayed at an arm’s length.
The other thing was that Owen like to have an adult cup like the rest of us or does feel included. Matt filling one up with water and hands it to him. As Owen takes his first sip half the water spills off his chin and all down his shirt. Don’t worry Owen, I told him, I do that all the time and supposedly I’m an adult.
Thank you three for all your kindness and for allowing me the honor of sharing a bit go your time on Tybee!
