June 27 of 30

I got some lovely stitch markers from Franney today in the mail. They were sent all the way from Surrey, England. Thank you Franney, I love them!

For the summer swap, I'm just missing two sets of stitch markers, one set from Sara, and one set from Celena, whom are both in my SP10 group. I can't wait to see what they send. And then, I'll get working on collecting sign ups for the fall exchange, which is taking sign ups now until August 31st. You can exchange with as many partners as you want, so if you want 1 or 5 or 10 partners, this swap is for you! (Providing you like to make stitch markers! Handmade only!)

Today Sean tried carrots for he first time ever. His doctor asked me to wait until he was 6 months old for carrots, potato, turnips and beets. (I won't be feeding him turnips or beets, why give him what I don't even eat? Unless someone can tell me any benefits of turnips or beets, Sean probably will never eat them.) He had a weird reaction to the carrots. I'm hoping it grows on him, because carrots are a huge hit in this house. Both myself & Jamie are huge carrot eaters.

Because he was making faces to the carrots, I gave him peaches, which he's been eating for a while now. Well, he was making faces to that too, which is weird, because he likes peaches. So I'm thinking, he was just doing it to be silly, or to get a reaction from me, or I just don't know why. So, we'll try again tomorrow with the carrots. However, this time, I think I'll put him naked (just in a diaper) and his solids bib (plastic bib), because today, we stained a bib and a onesie, and carrots make a huge mess. Especially with this kid. I mean, look at his face in both photos. Eating is just the messiest thing right now....

So we eat, and hop into a bath right after. A bath was welcomed due to this heat we're having. This is Sean's first time in the duck tub. He figured out, while sitting, how to scoot himself foward, so he can get closer to the duck's head. When did he learn to do that? I do not know.

He just absolutely loved the duck tub. And he fits into it so well. It's not too big, and he can't "go" anywhere in it. I'm very happy that I got this a while ago, I was just waiting until he could sit properly to use it.

Ruber ducky, you're the one.... rubber ducky, you're so much fun... rubber ducky, you make bath time so much fun... I don't know the rest of the words, or if I'm even getting it right, so I'll quit while I'm ahead!

Washer & Dryer were ordered today. Sears is delivering between 8 am and 6 pm on Saturday. (That's quite the block of time). I recall when I got my gaz stove from Sears, they said the same thing for time, and they showed up at 5:45 pm. I had to wait home all day for them. At least Jamie will be home if I should have to run out for anything.

Today I started going through my Sean photos and I put dates on all the backs. I want to put them in order in his photo album, and make prints (since Loblaws has photos on sale), and I'm almost done going through, and deciding which recent photos to print to add to his album. I don't want Sean to wonder why there are 100 photo albums of his nephew Merlyn, but 1 album of him as a baby... so I want to keep up before I get too behind on photo printing. Ok, I don't really have 100 photo albums of my nephew Merlyn, but for example, his first birthday I think is 2 or 3 albums.... I kid you not. I'll have to make sure to take a lot of Sean's first birthday! Don't forget, he was the first "baby" in the family (Jamie's sister's kid) and I was in photo school at the time, so I was snap happy... that's for sure.

Tomorrow, I plan on possibly going to the LYS near my parents to pick up something with my gift certificate that my cousin Jenn got me for my birthday. I know exactly 1 item I want to get with it, the rest, we'll see what I happen to see while there! I don't know if I'll make it out there though. I neglected a whole bunch of chores today since it was spiking hot, I just didn't want to get anything done, and Sean and I took a long nap in the morning, as well as a long nap in the afternoon (about 3 hours each nap!) (I love cuddling with him), and then I was going to walk over (Sean in stroller) to the shopping center around the corner from my house, but it was just too humid for Sean, so I packed him up in the car, and we drove over, and then we went to the pharmacy, and then to the grocery store to pick up a few things including dinner.

This evening Jamie & I watched Stranger Than Fiction. Finally! A good version. It was better than I was expecting, but it wasn't the greatest movie ever. It was cute though. And the scene that I saw on the corrupt version that the talking doesn't line up with the mouths ..... that scene wasn't even in the movie!?? So I have no idea what I was even watching.... Weird!

I just tried beets with Lani last night! I don't eat them, but because of her weight problems I thought that I should give them a try. She LOVED them! Michael says they are very sweet! Blah!

I love that ducky tub! I have seen a lot of blogger Mommies with it!

Duckie tub rocks! Too cute!
I love looking at all of your stitch markers...(and I love having the ones you made me, did I mention that?). I should join one of these exchanges - but I think I need to learn how to make some, first, LOL. Any favorite sites/stores for supplies? Where did you learn?

Sean is so adorable! I remember the kids did that too. Make funny face, blow raspberries in their mouth with food. It is so cute at first, then it gets frustrating!

Cute pictures of Sean in the ducky tub. He is getting so big.

ooh, the stitchmarkers you received are so cool!!! love the pics of sean in his duck's so cool! As for the carrots--and the peaches--maybe he made the weird face with the peaches because he had just had the carrots and still had the taste in his mouth. my niece isn't a fan of saw the pics! She can't have apple juice either.

I'm trying to remember my nephew's reaction t carrots the first time. I think, if they are used to eating sweet things (like the peaches), when they eat something not sweet they don't like it for that fact. I know he eventually ate the carrots though, so keep trying. It's probably because it was something new to him. He might have made the face with the peaches as well because he'd just had carrots and the peaches were sweeter...maybe seemed sour or something to him.

Well...if you try him with enought beets, his pee will be At least that's what someone told me before. They'd eaten a lot of beets and ended up peeing purple! LOL!

Sean looks so adorable in that tub and looks like he had so much fun (and it probably cooled him off a lot too). My mom used to bathe my nephew in the kitchen sink when he was small. It's a double sink so she'd use one side, and it was a good size for him.

And...just for you (taken from
