Today, daddy worked again, so it was just Sean and I all morning. We watched some TV together, and then we napped on the couch by the fireplace. I've been trying to sleep whenever he sleeps, but sometimes it's just not possible. Plus, I don't need to sleep 20 hours a day like Sean does.
This afternoon Jamie helped me give Sean a bath, and he didn't cry as much as the first bath, but he still kvetched a bit... afterwards, he looked soooo cute in his bath towel, I had to take some pictures:
And I had to snap a photo of his cute little feet in his Habs socks! You have to see how tiny these things are in real life. They fit on my thumb!
Here is a pic of me with Sean in his mirror in his bedroom. I love it. I think I'm going to start doing more of these self portraits of the two of us more often. Right now it's easy, because I can hold Sean literally with 1 finger (ok, just kidding, with one hand, since he's sooo light! But I know that won't last for long.)
So, I'm really frustrated right now, Sean won't sleep in his bassinet or crib. He only wants to be in our arms, and I cant hold him all day long and all night long, I'm seriously getting nothing done. I need to not only pump so that Sean has what to eat, I have to do other things as well, like allow time for myself to eat (I never have time in the morning to eat breakfast, especially when Jamie is at work, because I don't have two hands to even pour myself a bowl of cereal). Sean just doesn't ever want to be put down. I'm almost about to pull my hair out about it. And I can't stand for him to cry either when we do try to put him down. I let him for a few minutes, to show him that we won't run to him the second he cries (we don't want him to get used to the fact that if he cries we'll pick him up immediately), but I can't stand to have him crying either. So, it's like, what to do?
I finally got my sock blockers in the mail today! Now I just need a pair of socks to put on them!
So the Blue Moon site it up and running again and I paid for my club kit today. I can't wait to get my first package in the mail in February... I'm so excited for my very first skein of Socks that Rock! I'm a STR virgin, it's true. One of two Canadian retailers for STR is in Edmonton and somewhere else. In Edmonton, they carry it at River City Yarns. I know this because Barb just got some there. I am not sure where the second retailer is, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was in Toronto. Definitely it's not Montreal. I've never seen any at Mouline, Effiloche, La Tricoteuse, or The Wool Shop in the West Island.
So.... my Column of Leaves Scarf. I had re-started it. And then after the 8 rows of garter ridge to start, and after 2 pattern repeats....I notice a mistake. So, being overtired and frustrated today, I ripped it back to the end of the garter ridge start, and will re-start the pattern repeat tomorrow, if I have any time at all to knit. We'll see if time permits. Time, what's that? Especially knitting time. What's knitting? (LOL - Just kidding). I just hope that I don't make another mistake, I need to REALLY pay attention to what I'm doing while knitting this scarf.... One small mistake, and it's very frustrating! Maybe I'm just too much of a perfectionist...
This weekend is half laid back and half busy, I'll talk about that later on. I must go pump again. I feel like that's all I do these days.
