April 27 of 30

Simple Hooded Cardigan from Lion Brand - I want to make this sweater for Sean - it's just tooo cute. And it looks fairly easy. Not sure what yarn I'm going to use yet, or what color, but as soon as I finish Jamie's socks (by Father's Day), I am going to cast on this sweater for my baby boy!

For those of you asking or whom want to know, the awesome knit diva cards I got yesterday in the mail from Cynthia can be found here for sale in her Etsy shop.

I'm having a good day today, and I'm feeling great. I've lost 14 lbs since the beginning of March, and I'm only 1 lb more than what I was in 2005 when I started my lifestyle change (GI diet) to lose 25 lbs by my wedding day - which I did!) so I've got those 25 lbs to lose, plus the 1 that I'm up by, plus I want to lose an additional 5 to be 5 less than what I was at my wedding. I think I can do it. Actually, I KNOW I can do it! I have two shirts in my room that I want to fit into by my birthday. I CAN SO DO IT! My bday is in 50 days according to my blog sidebar!

This afternoon while Jamie & I caught up on last weekend's Sopranos & Entourage, I finished knitting the square above. Square number 9, which joined 2 other squares.

I then cast on square number 10. Square number 10 will get done tomorrow. I have faith in that. However, I think after that square, I am going to cast on Jamie's sock #2, as I want to get that done before Father's day. That will be his father's day present. I also need to evaluate all my WIPS.... I will do that sometime in the next week.

I got asked about my headband in last night's self portrait with Sean. I got them not too long ago, they were 5 for 10$ at a store called Ardene in Quebec (and possibly the rest of Canada?). They're kind of like a Claire's Boutique (which I know is in Canada and the USA). I love them. The top one is like the two after it, but has blue in it. I think the green background is washing out the blue colors.

Tonight, Sean modelled his new shoes for us. Turns out, he needed the 0-3 month size. Geez, are his feet small, or just this company makes big shoes for 0-3 size? I now own shoes for him in 0-3, 3-6, 6-9 and 9-12, and in 0-3 I have 3 of the 4 pairs, in 3-6 & 6-9 I have all 4 of the pairs, and in 9-12 I have 2 of the pairs. They were very inexpensive and too cute to pass up!

Who cares that he's not walking yet, mommy needed her shoe fix! Why, not, right??! I can't even get shoes at this price - I wish!

My friend Vera came over this evening to watch a movie with me and hang out with Sean. We started watching the movie Little Children, but then it froze somewhere after an hour of watching it, and people kept coming in the room to see Sean, so we kept having to pause it, and it was getting to be annoying, that we said screw it. I got her the movie on DVD-R (It was a download off torrentspy - so she could watch it at home later). I definitely plan on finishing watching it over the weekend. I need to know how it ends! It was actually not bad!

This evening before V and her boyfriend Shel left (Shel played poker with everyone), Shel fixed my computer so that I can now transfer files onto my MP3 player, which I couldn't get to work before. I can't wait to add files (new songs I've gotten and saved into a folder) onto my MP3 player I'm sooo darn excited!) And while Shel was helping me with my computer, V & Sean both fell asleep on the extra couch, which Jamie has NOT yet gotten rid of, which I stabbed my toe on the other day, causing me to possibly break a toe. (This was last Friday). It's still sore, my toe is turning colors (yikes!) and I'm still aching, but it's getting better.

I still have some stories I promised you yesterday, and some things I wanted to blog about, but yet again, they'll have to wait until tomorrow, I just do not have the energy to type them up tonight. So you'll have to wait one more day for that!

Tomorrow we have plans for dinner with Jamie's sister & our nephew at my in-law's place. They have not seen Sean since his Brit Milah when he was about 2 and a half weeks old (remember, it was delayed due to his lack of weight). So it's been almost 3 and a half months since they've seen Sean. BOY has he changed since then. They'll be shocked! I also can't wait to see my nephew, I have some stuff from Easter I got him.... it's hard with them being 3 and a half hours away.

Well, I'm going to go kiss my son on his forehead, and crawl into bed next to my hubby.... who are both fast asleep! Of course, as always, more tomorrow!

ps- I've also gotten inquiries about the Sheep Piggy Bank - it was 5$ at a store called Le Rouet here in Quebec. I don't see a website for them, I just googled their name. The fur on the sheep is actual eyelash yarn, it's kind of funny!

Sean's blankie is coming along great. I just love the 17 week picture of you and Sean. I like your headbands too. Great pictures of Sean wearing his shoes.
