For size, here is my Staedtler eraser, which I don't even know why I have, because I don't even think I own a single pencil (I'm a pen girl! Or even marker - but not pencil!)
Today Sean finally realized that his hand works for grasping things. He actually watched his hand go onto the ring and then pull it. He has been holding onto things, but today was the first time he realized that he has full control over that! It was really amazing watching him do this - he's growing too fast - really - I wish it would slow down. I want him to stay this size forever - can he?? Please?! (Today Sean's in yellow ducks - yesterday it was green frogs - gosh I love Old Navy for babies! He's officially in 3-6 month size (12-17 lbs)... my gosh, he's growing!)
Last night when I put him down to sleep - I'd say around 11pm, he woke up at 5 am to eat. I think he got too much sleep during the day - so sleeping through the night was probably out of the question. Anyhow - he had scooched himself (that is the only word I can use to describe it about 20 inches forward or maybe even more - from where I left him earlier. So - that was my cue to take everything out of his crib that was in there.... this kid is going to be crawling before I know it. Better safe than sorry - right?
Tonight I showed up to my Pre/Post Natal Aqua class to learn that the entire pool was in lanes and reserved for some tryout. No one told me that the Aqua class had been cancelled. I was in my bathing suit down by the pool when I asked if the teacher was there, and was informed that she didn't come in due to the pool being closed. I'm very upset about this, because I'm paying for a membership, that I can't seem to use because there isn't any of these classes that I'm paying to use the membership for. Two weeks ago there was no class due to the Maccabi game tryouts. Last week she cancelled the class due to her hubby's birthday being on the same day. Today cancelled cuz someone reserved the pool. And the next 2 weeks are closed due to the pool being closed for painting - which coincides with Pesach (Jewish Holiday that lasts 8 days). I go to a Jewish YMWHA.
Tonight I stupidly watched the current episode of Prison Break on TV because there was nothing else on. I think the current season is at like episode 19 or 20. I've got to start episode 1 from this season. So now I know a few things that happen in the future, ugh! Why did I do that? And then I watched 24 on tv. I worked on my father-in-law's Irish Hiking Scarf.
I am NOT enjoying working with Acrylic. It's gross against my fingers. I apologize to acrylic lovers. Really - I am not liking the feeling of it. But - I know that I have to use it - because there is no way that my in-laws will remember to not put it into the washing machine and dryer. Acrylic is the best bet. And I thought by using Red Heart Soft Touch it would be softer than normal acrylic - but no. Yeah - I'm a Yarn Snob - what can I say? Acrylic just grosses me out.
Tomorrow night Jamie & I are going on a date for the first time since Sean's been born. He's being babysat by my parents, and we're off to the hockey game. I'm very excited to see the Habs play Boston. We won Saturday night's game against Toronto - in a shootout - and it was a very good game. I'm hoping for a win tomorrow. I'm decking out in Habs gear - and I'll make sure that Sean is wearing his habs jersey at home. (He actually has one!) I hope he'll be a good boy and stay up for a bit while my parents are here, but go to bed like a good boy too! I don't mind if they keep him up while they're here - that just means that he'll sleep good when I get home! LOL. Wow - our first time out together alone without Sean! I wonder how many times I'll call to check on him! Or will I be strong and not? I know 100% he'll be fine with my parents - but I'll still worry - of course!
Alright, I should get Sean awake so he eats now and then sleeps through til morning. I don't want him waking again at 5 am - I can't do it 2 nights in a row! Some nights he can sleep 7-8 hours straight, and others, just 6-7 hours at a time. And as of now, he's been sleeping since 8 pm. Time for a snack and back to bed, and to bed for me. I've got this WILD pain in my neck - not sure from what. Maybe from multi tasking while feeding Sean - I'm not too sure. If it doesn't go away, I must cash in that 30 minute massage I got as a gift when Sean was born! I totally forgot about that!
Alright.... I smell a diaper in need of changing! Good night and happy knitting.
