march eighteen :: 31 days :: day eighteen

Day Eighteen. Tackle it Tuesday.

This morning my mom went into the water with Sean because I didn't want to take the chance of getting even more sick. I am feeling better bronchitis wise, but now, I've got a nasty cold. Yummy. I'm hoping it goes away soon!

Remember I was talking about Sean making a face when he doesn't get what he wants? Well, above, is said "face".... It's like this devil face squish thing. Not really sure what to call it. But honestly, it makes me laugh every time he does do it!

Sean got a report card today at the end of class. He achieved everything this session and since he's not old enough to "move on" to the next level (He needs to be 2 years old), he'll be in the same session again, starting next week. It's so cute that he got a "report card". I'm putting it into his baby book.

I believe this is the last towel in the "Towel Collection". It's a cat towel. I hope you've enjoyed the towel collection series as much as I've enjoyed photographing them!

Upon finishing swimming I went to my mom's house with Sean. I did some sewing done while my mom took care of some things that she had to do, (I fixed a pair of Sean's pants as well as re-attached his mitten to the string he ripped it off of, so that we don't lose them). Upon leaving, I saw this beautiful gem just sitting on my mom's table, and she didn't know what to do with it. I was like "HELLO!" and I'm in love. Now I need somewhere to wear it to. Sean stayed at my parents house, so that I could go home and do work.

Upon getting home, there was some mail. First up, I received some leftover sock yarn love from Shelly. Thank you very much Shelly for passing on your leftovers. They will look great in Sean's Blankie and I will save some for Mackenzie's future blankie. (I do plan on making him one too!)

I also received samples of "Mini-skeins" from Perfect Day Yarns. I'm testing out her yarns with skeins that are just big enough for the blankies. (How perfect!) Sarah sells the mini-skeins in her shop.

And then I got started on my list of things to do. One of which, was to hang up Sean's first painting ever. Doesn't it just look BEAUTIFUL in our main floor hallway? It's in between 2 rooms, the dinning room and the living room/playroom. I'm just waiting for the first person to come over and ask me "Which Artist is that?" So that I can reply... "SEAN!" My little picasso! Mommy framed his first print. Mommy still has 2 more frames and will probably frame some more of his artwork! Why not! My upstairs hallway has nothing on the walls! I'm so fucking proud!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

This is my first time participating in Tackle It Tuesday. However I really had four million things to do today while Sean was at my parents house.

I had a STACK of papers (bills, invoices, you name it), piling up since - oh, I don't know, October/November 2007 maybe. If not before. I sorted through it all (above is not even half of the piles that were all over the floor while sorting, but only what I could fit into the picture!) and got to organizing my papers.

And the end results an hour later? A clean filing cabinet, and a bunch of shredding papers going out in recycling tomorrow morning. There was a TON of papers that I also no longer needed, and had no idea why I was still hanging onto, so they all went out into the shredding machine. (Oh, I love my shredder!)

I managed to check a LOT of things off my list today. Sean ended up coming home around 7pm tonight and I am soooooooooooooo proud of all the things I got done. It's so hard to do things with Sean around, he doesn't like to play alone, so entertaining him allows me to get nothing done. I still have a million things left on my "To-do" list... but those will have to get accomplished another day. There's always tomorrow.

I did manage to sort through my button collection and pick out buttons for the Baby Surprise Jacket. Now all I have to do is sew the top and add on the buttons. I'm hoping to get to the sewing/finishing tomorrow, but if not, by the weekend I hope to have it accomplished. What do you think of my button selection?

Well, my nose is running, so I better go catch it. (I just want the runny nose to stop!) I wish I could take Tylenol Cold, but no.... not when you're pregnant you can't. Feck! I have a nose redder than Rudolph's....

Day Eighteen. Spent no money. Didn't really leave the house besides to go to Sean's swimming class. I'm proud that I got rid of the last four boxes in my office, and now I still have a few more things to organize/put away in my office, but the last of the boxes are gone! Oh, I'm soo happy. Only took 4 months....! (We moved exactly 4 months ago yesterday).

Alright, I'm going to go read a few pages and hit the sack. We have music tomorrow morning, providing I'm feeling 100% up to it. (I don't see why not.. unless my nose really does start to fall off).

OMG that blue gem necklace - no fair why do u get it?? You know me and blues!! We will have to SHARE!!!

For ur nose, go to pharmaprix and by Vitamine C pills - take 3 a day and then reducde to 2 a day when u get back. I did it over Xmas time when I was sick and it helps so much faster! And i dont see that being harmful to my nephew!! xox

Sean giving the "evil eye" is so cute!

Bertha said...

I secretly want to get my nose pierced too! But Matt said he'd divorce me if I did! I'm pretty sure he was kidding, but I don't think he'd appreciate it. Boo!

adrienne said...

Sean is as cute as ever :-)

Your mom - I thought it was your sister - she looks too young to be your mom!

dawn said...

Your mom looks soo young. The pictures of her with sean in the water are to cute. I love the faces he makes...too funny!

Barb said...

Victoria said...

Hope you feel better soon! Cute pictures of the pool. :)

Snarsh said...

i'm also told I look like my mom, I always denied it, but these days i'm starting to see the resemblance more and more. I try not to let my hair get to a certain length and style cause it just doesn't help the resemblance at all.

Shelley said...

Your mom doesn't look old enough to have a daughter your age! And you look like her too.

Those pics of Sean are so cute. I love that little scrunched up nose face he's making!

Congrats on doing so well with swimming, Sean!!

Lindsey said...

ok the cat towel is by far my favorite! so cute! sean is such a cutie...that face is priceless. i am glad you captured it on film! adorable!

Robin said...

You and your mom look a lot alike! The report card is really cute.

Jennifer said...

the buttons are a great choice - can't wait to see it on baby mack!

ps - i have my nose pierced and have for i think four years now. just a tiny pink stud, enough to give a lil sparkle to my face. lots of people don't even notice it, but i've gotten plenty of compliments over the years about how pretty and small it is. and it didn't hurt! i say go get it done after you have the baby!

g-girl said...

teehee--i was thinking the same thing as everyone else--your mom looks so young! i had to do a double take! I hadn't noticed how much you and your mom look alike. :) that is so cute that sean got a report card from swim class. i love that you've framed his first piece of art too. :) and that pendant/jewel you found @ your mom's is gorgeous!

Tara said...

Nice devil face! Is it accompanied by a devil squeal as well? Maxime screeches like a banshee when he doesn't get what he wants!
