Exactly three years ago, I wrote this:
Owen Gregory Cactus-Fish arrived at 3:55 the afternoon of February 10th. He was ushered into the world to the strains of You Can't Hurry Love performed by Phil Collins. Ironic since there isn't an artist Beth hates more. Owen weighed in at 9 pounds 3 ounces and is perfectly, wonderfully healthy. Beth is doing well. I am only slightly traumatized.
I have absolutely no idea how it happened but Owen is now three. And I am still slightly traumatized.
Over the last three years Owen has changed from a tiny, helpless infant into a superhero-loving, Lego-playing, Star Wars-obsessed little buy who tells completely nonsensical jokes and is capable of destroying anything merely by glancing at it. Owen is this little person, full of humor and life and love and I love him for it.
Happy Birthday, Owen. I love you, little dude.

Please tell Owen that he and I share a birthday. And it's the most awesome birthday ever!
Happy 3rd Birthday Owen!
Happy Birthday Owen! Personally, I think that 3 is much worse than 2, but I'm sure you'll make it was easier on your parents than my daughter is.
THREE!? That's not possible!
Happy Birthday, Big O! I don't believe you're already three, but your daddy's a smart man. He must be right about this!
OMG! I can't believe it! Happy Birthday Owen!!!
Where the hell did the last 3 years go?! Happy Birthday to one of the awesomest little dudes I "know!"
THOSE EYES. Happy Birthday, Owen!
Happy Birthday Owen! May the force be with you.
That picture of him with the purple tie is very cute and he is kinda giving the same look that you are in your profile picture to the right.
Happy Birthday Owen- cherish each one.
Happy Birthday 3 year old. Where does the time go?
Happy Birthday, Owen! All of the pics are sweet, but that one with the purple tie is to-die-for cute. Congrats to you too, Cactus!
Aw beautiful little boy! *ahem* handsome I mean! Happy birthday little man.
I remember either you or Beth wondering how you could possibly split all of the enormous love you had and have for Mia between two little people. In retrospect, look how easy that was!
What a beautiful little man he's turned in to.
Happy Birthday, Owen!
Happy 3rd birthday to Owen.
Happy Happy Birthday, Owen! Have a Super Awesome Day! ;-)
Happy Birthday Owen! I'm not sure where the time has gone, but reading about your adventures has made the time fly by!! I hope you have a Star Wars worthy day today!!
Wow. 3. I have been reading your blog since you announced Beth was pregnant with Baby #2 Cactus-Fish. Where in the heck has the time gone?
You've got yourself a beautiful, happy, healthy little boy there, Chris. And that? Is one of life's most precious gifts. Enjoy.
I CANNOT believe Owen is 3. I remember watching Beth's belly grow on a weekly basis during what seems like last year. Gosh. Happy (belated) Birthday to Sir Owen.
happy birthday, owen! i started reading this blog a day or two after he was born, so i honestly tell time by his birthdays :) :)
i really can't believe he's three already. time is a remarkable thing.
Three??!!?? Where does the time go?
And he just gets more handsome by the day.
Happy Birthday Owen
It's been fun watching the little guy grow. Amazing what can happen in 3 years.
Those baby blues are going to break a lot of hearts some day.
