april four :: 66 weeks

Sean is now 66 weeks old. He can brush his teeth on his own, well, actually prefers to do it on his own, but I double check his work once he's done. He's still got only his front 8 teeth (top 4, buttom 4) and has cut 1 molar, but it's not really sticking out yet. Though, when you go to feel it, it's sharp (and he bites!)

We had music this morning and I left EARLY to be there EARLY and just my luck.... there was a truck pulling some sort of U-turn at the exit of the highway at the entrance to the overpass to get to the other side of the highway, and that caused traffic exiting there to back up. It was a NASTY mess. So, of course, traffic was at a standstill for about 5 minutes, and then it had to clear up. Needless to say, I was a few minutes late. Grr!!

After music I met up with another mom, who does the Tuesday and Friday classes with me. We went to go walk around the mall. It was nice. She left before me, because her son was getting restless and needed a nap.

While there, I picked up this really neat Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Baby Swim Float. We already have this one which Sean used all last summer. It was 7.99$ and I thought it was super cute. I think Sean will get more of a kick out of this one, than the plain blue one we have. I can't wait for the snow to melt and to be able to use my parent's pool. My parents live 5 streets away, so I'll be taking advantage of the pool all summer, let me tell you! Even with the newborn! I hope to get Mack used to the water as young as possible. Sean was introduced to the pool at about 2-3 months old. It'll be perfect timing for Mack this summer! Maybe not at the beginning of the summer, but definitely by mid-to-end summer! (I'm hoping anyhow!) I picked up a few other things while out, 3 new books for Sean (he's modeling one of them in the next photo below) and some shoes for me (oops!) I also stopped into the sports store to visit my cousin, and I ended up getting 1 baseball cap that I'd been eyeing for a while, as well as another hat (both HABS!) and a Habs Flag for my car. I've been wanting one for a while now, and thanks to my cousin's family discount at the sports store, I now own one :)

Sean fell asleep on the way home from the mall. Which was fine by me. I had another errand I needed to run, but I put it off because I didn't want to risk waking him up. The errand could wait for later. As you can see, he's wearing his hood. Because we weren't expecting this when we left this house today (see next photo):


There was a LOT of snow out there today. It was nice though, the nice pretty huge white flakes! But still. It's April! Spring weather! Not snowing weather. And it's supposed to be 10+ degrees this week. So why on earth is it snowing??????????

This evening friends of ours came over. We ordered in dinner and they are almost done the entire series of Sopranos. They had 2 episodes left. Tomorrow night they're watching the finale with their uncle or something, and asked if we wanted to watch the 2nd to last episode with them. We've seen the entire series (when it was live on TV), so we didn't mind. I knitted (on the Judy's Grandma's baby sweater) and Sean ran around the den making a little bit more noise than we were hoping for. We had a good evening with friends.

Tomorrow we're going to visit the people sitting shiva so Sean can run around and play with their bored 19 month old, and then I'm dropping Sean off at my parents house as we've got tickets to see the Habs vs. Toronto game. Last Regular Season Game. Let me tell you, I'm STOKED for the playoffs!!! GO HABS GO! Hopefully we'll make it past round one! And I'm pretty sure I have dibs (yey!) on the first playoff game.

Don't forget that May's Sock Club Kits are now available for sale chez Robyn's Nest. You will be receiving a skein of sock yarn handpainted by Jennifer of NYS Farms, VanCalCar Acres Sheep Farm. You will be getting an exclusive colorway that you won't be able to get anywhere else. The pattern is from an outside source, by Adrienne of Knitting in the Belly-button of California. And of course, stitch markers to match made by me, and extra goodies - as always! :)

I wonder if I should pick up one of those flotation things for Maxime? With 2 kids in the pool at once, I may need it!
