They learn so fast...

I cannot believe how fast our Owen is growing! He was to tiny and fragile then and now he is so big and smart! I miss the days when he was so tiny and I could hold him on my chest, but having him tell me what he needs is wonderful too!
In fact just the other night Owen woke up in the middle of the night turned on his light, used the bathroom, turned back off the light, got back in his own bed and went back to sleep. That's progress!!!

Owen has been loving pre-school. He has a little "girlfriend" in his class named sophie. When I went to pick him up the other day his teacher told me that sophie had told him "im going to marry you one day Owen, are you Mormon?" I guess they start training them early in her family! He didn't say anything in response....didn't know what to say i suppose. Funny though!

Owen also has a favorite book at our house. The Haunted House. Its a Disney book, with mickey, Donald and Pluto in it. I guess we have read it to him enough because he knows every word on every page! He can literally read it to me at night. I will try to get a video of it before he stops. Pretty cool since he is only 3. I really love books so I hope he continues to them too!

I wasn't feeling very good this week, i had a terrible cold and sore throat. My awesome parents came and took Owen for the day so I could get some much needed rest. I still felt like a train hit me when I woke up from my nap so they ended up taking Owen to my brothers JV game in Payson. My dad was taking Owen to the bathroom at the very moment my brother scored a 50 yrd touchdown. So my dad missed it and my mom wasn't quick enough to get in on tape. I think I am on the bad list for a while with that one! But if a 3 yr old tells you he has to go!
The Varsity team also won the Homecoming game! It was awesome! At the ticket booth they gave everyone a balloon to let go at the first touchdown. It was sweet to see all those green and white balloons floating away! School spirit is the best!
Jeremy and I got tickets for Thriller! We are taking Owen for the first time and I cant wait! It is actually here in Provo for once and my entire family is going. It is one of the few traditions Jeremy and I have together so to finally include Owen is great! He loves everything Halloween and he cant stop thinking about it!

I taught the lesson in relief society last week. It was pure torture and I'm pretty sure my blood pressure has never been higher. I made it through and managed to use up all the time allotted to me. I don't think I did a good job, but my mother in law told me as long as you learn something from the lesson that's all that matters. Thanks Cathy!
