Snips and Snails

You know that saying about boys...

What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails
That's what little boys are made of !"

What does that mean anyway?
Well, this little boy is much like a puppy these days. Mark and I have been referring to the boys as pups. They often are more like puppies than human beings... getting into things & "scrappin". Anyway, besides being very puppy-like he is completely cute!

Last night Owen picked out these new slippers...

I know, they are completely impractical and large and he has a funny walk when he wears them, but I have a soft spot in my heart for my second born (Yes, I am a middle child too!). He is the lucky receiver of quality hand-me-downs from his dearest older brother (who is mostly mean to him these days! when does that stop?) and his opportunities to receive something new are slim to none. So, when it was time for him to have a pair of slippers I decided I would interfere little in his choice (within reason). These were approved because of the price and that he could put them on himself.

I took this picture this morning just after he woke up. I had taken the tags off the slippers and set them in the living room for him. He was the first one up so we were able to enjoy a little "Lightning McQueen" worship together. Owen LOVES the "Cars" movie and most of the characters. He put on his slippers, stood up and said, "Mama, these look good." Can a 2 year old be vain? I don't think so...just cute (most of the time)!

Target was also the lovely starting place for the beginning of 4 hours of throwing up, Audrey style.
She seems ok this morning... really thirsty and having no trouble eating her toast.

I have been wondering about a milk allergy - since I weaned her and she has been on milk full time she has had REALLY messy diapers - and Mark shared his ice cream at dinner. But no fever. Thankfully she was done with the dry heaves by about 11pm and had a good night of sleep.

On a side note, this is mid-term week.
Please pray for Mark...
...that he will be able to focus and accomplish when it is time for focusing and accomplishing
...that he will be able to rest when it is time to rest

Owen has a kindred spirit in his "Cars" worship by the name of Cason. "Gitdo" (Lightning McQueen) is his new favorite word. My Gitdo, my Gitdo!!!! In fact we had a complete meltdown in the aisles of Target the other day over the very same pair of slippers. Don't be surprised if someone tries to commandere them on Thursday!
