"i want owen self" is the way that owen tells us he wants to do something himself. he has been on a big "self" kick lately and by that i don't mean he kicks himself! everything he does first has to be attempted by...you guessed it, himself! this was his first attempt at putting his shoes on, and he got it on the first try! ok, i know i shouldn't get overly excited here, it is velcro...but he has been trying everything, even when he doesn't want to! i am proud of him, whether 1 velcro or not!!!
