Getting to know our readers' babies ...

Who: Owen Bradley Hamilton, son of joci2203. He was born April 3, 2009, and weighed in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces, and he was 21 1/2 inches long.

How long does he sleep at night? He goes to bed around 7 p.m. every night and has done this since he was 2 to 3 months old. He has been an amazing sleeper!

What makes him smile? He likes to be chased! We'll say, "I'm going to get you!" He'll laugh and then run away; it's the cutest thing ever!

How did you choose his name? My favorite book is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I wanted a name from a character in the book and Owen was the only name from that book my husband and I both agreed on. His middle name is after my stepdad who never got the chance to have his own children.

Any siblings? I have one older son who's 5 named Nolan.

What's Owen's latest milestone? Clapping and waving bye. He also is nodding his head yes or shaking his no to different foods I give him.

What's his fussiest time of day? Right before bed. He'll literally run around the house like a tornado, grabbing anything within his reach and throwing it around!

What will he do for a career? I think he'll be my free-spirited child. I could see him doing something outdoorsy. He'll be the type to work at a ski resort as a snowboard instructor. Who knows, it doesn't matter what he does as long as he's happy!
