Mid Week Update

Brown Family Mid Week Update:

Owen ate an entire BRAND NEW packet of gum in just 5 minutes of quietly shopping at Hobby Lobby. Mama was quite impressed on how good he was being, little did she know...I am not joking, he ate the ENTIRE package, 18 pieces.

If you remember from the Halloween post, Daddy had a pipe. Daddy thought it would be funny to actually smoke tobacco from the pipe. 4 days later, Owen finds the bag of tobacco in the office, higher than Daddy thought he could reach. Owen then finds no interest in it and gives bag to Cooper and Oscar...who then track it all over the dining room...the ENTIRE package.

Owen dumped an entire LARGE DIET COKE WITH LEMON on his sister this afternoon...no reason, just thought it was funny (stole it from me when I was I looked away). Claire...not so amused.

Lastly - Owen was following Mama around yesterday morning as she was getting ready, saying "Daddy" over and over again. Mama acknowledged and kept going as she was. When Mama stepped into a wet puddle on the carpet, she then realized in fact he was not saying "Daddy", he was saying "tee tee". Owen had removed his diaper (he was just wearing a shirt from bed) and had "tee tee-ed" all over the house, mostly in the bathroom floors. The best spot - all over the ottoman in the living room.

In dog related news - Cooper and Oscar are now sporting new fall collars...aren't they handsome??!!

Bad news - Took Cooper to the vet this week as he had some yucky stuff coming out of his eye. Cooper is a regular at the vet, there is nothing that is not wrong with him, they love him there...not sure if because he is such a sweetie or the dent in my checking account. We found out that our poor Pug is blind in his right eye =(. Vet said that it is just par for the course for Pugs, but we were sad for him. He does not seem bothered by it...still can take off with a cookie faster than Oscar =).

And finally Miss Claire...Claire mastered the pull over and flip on the high bar tonight (well not so high, but it's high when you are little) and is very proud. Claire is also so impressed this week that Mama could make "britos" (burritos)...
Claire: "Mama, how did you know that these "gredents" go together to make "britos"?"
Mama: " I just know, I am sure Nonna taught me."
Claire: "Mama, you are just AMAAAAAZING!"
New word to her vocab. Maybe I should cook more =)

Claire had pictures today at preschool - very furious with me that I did not allow her to wear her Mermaid costume =). Apparently, the cute long sweater with the belt and leggings I sent her in were "hideous". Here she is this week in her tutu courtesy of Aunt Nicole. She was not wanting her picture taken...but I couldn't resist. Sometimes these are cuter =).
Hope you are having a great week!!!

Claire is looking FIERCE in that tutu/uggs outfit! And I feel you on the whole gum thing. My two and three year old did that...but at least they shared a package. LOL!

Hugs to Cooper! Poor doggie! As long as you have one good eye, it's all ok right? :)
