june fifteen :: father's day


Hospital bag is packed. You know what the means right? Time for the baby to come! I ironically packed my hospital bag when pregnant with Sean THE DAY BEFORE my water broke. Hoping for a baby soon, I decided to pack my bag (properly). (When I was in the hospital a month ago when I wasn't feeling well, I had just shoved stuff into the bag, so it really needed to be packed properly). Notice the booties on top? Mackenzie got his very own pair of newborn Habs booties. He'll be coming home from the hospital in them.

Today was a nice day, Jamie went to a card show this morning in the city (he collects hockey cards) and he bought a box for us to open when he got home. It's so much fun to open hockey cards. Sean even likes hockey cards too (though he doesn't know what they are just yet). We pulled some nice cards, and that was fun. You never know what you're going to get in a box! I have fun opening them with Jamie so he waits for me and we do it together.

This afternoon we just chilled and Jamie did stuff around the house (while I hung out with Seanin the den) (I'm not so mobile right now - ready to pop any day now hopefully!)

This evening we went to my parents house for Father's Day dinner and it POURED buckets as soon as we got into the car. We got drenched pretty much going into my parents house, even with a huge umbrella. I really enjoyed my steak dinner, and apple pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Mmmmm!

Jamie & my dad liked their simple father's day gifts. It's sooooo super hard to shop for the 2 of them! Seriously! Especially for my dad. He's super hard to shop for (birthday, father's day, Chanukah... you name it!)

Tomorrow I go back to the OB, hoping for some good news that something's going on for Mack's arrival! Wish me luck! Sean also has his 18 month check up tomorrow (shots - fun fun!). Oh, and it's my birthday tomorrow....! Hoping for NO RAIN!

You have still until tomorrow night to enter your meatball guess for the contest on Wednesday's post. It ends 9pm EST tomorrow. GOOD LUCK!

Wishing all father's out there a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

xoxo

Wow, I see there's no post for the 16th, hopefully that means your packed bag performed its magic and you've welcomed Mackenzie to the world!

Tara said...

I hope you got your birthday wish and your doctor was able to strip your membranes!

Samantha said...

I love those little shoes! Adorable! :)

Trish said...

Hmmmmm....wondering what is up? Did Mackenzie make his appearance? No posting for 3 days makes me wonder!!! hope all is alright and can't wait to meet the little one!!!

sharon said...

As it is now the 18th, I am thinking that the doctor's visit went straight to delivery.
Praying everything is good and that your birthday was good.

sharon said...

Sorry - I don't know why i wrote MAv - I meant MACK ;) Hopefully he is out know and keeping you busy.

twinsetellen said...

Let's see --- no posts since the 15th. I hope this is a good sign and Mac is here, safe and sound.

Lara said...

Does the lack of updates recently mean that little Mac is here? I hope everything is going great!

ahufford said...

Happy very belated birthday! I just realized that I hadn't told you that. The booties are cute.

Firefly said...

CONGRATULATIONS! You must be so happy to finally get to see little Mack face to face, and (Sean must be wondering what the heck is going on). I can't wait to see pictures of the little guy when you get home!

IrishGirl said...

Hi there, popped into your blog and saw your last post as Father's Day...does that mean you are having Mackenzie??? Crossing fingers for you! Bren =]

Kim said...

No new posts on your blog can only mean ONE thing....

Bertha said...

OK, no posts from Robyn for 5 days?! I'm starting to get a little worried! I hope this just means she had the baby!

Bea said...

Happy Belated Birthday Mom and Mack!!! So happy you are out in the world now!

Jennifer said...

Happy Belated and hope the appt went well! Finally back online, but I'm guessing maybe lack of posts means that you might be having lil Mack, or have already had him???

AliP said...

Can't wait to see you and the newbie.
