Mack was all cozy in the sling, I just loved wearing him. I got a bunch of new slings this time, so I cannot wait to try them out. It's really too bad that Sean is way too heavy for me to wear. He's just about 25 lbs now. Doesn't Mack look cozy also in his Baby Surprise Jacket that was made by his mommy? xoxo
We took time in our front yard to smell the roses.
And check out some new flowers that are blossoming.
We had fun at the park up the street from our house. Jamie got into the sand box with Sean, he just loved it (I think they both did!)
Even Jamie got to try out some of the toys in the park! Boys will always be boys, eh?
Yesterday I received a bouquet of flowers from a friend of mine, Sherrie. I was a little confused at first because the card read that it was from "Cherry".... Thank you Sherrie, they are beautiful. I have them in the dinning room. The little vase it came in is really cute. I'm glad I get to keep it!
Mack is 1 week old today. Just like I did (and still do!) with Sean, I plan on doing weekly self-portrait photos with both my boys. Sean's weekly photos are on Friday, and Mack was born last Tuesday, so he'll get his photo take with me in the mirror on Tuesdays. I was just looking back at Sean's 2nd week photo, ahhhh, does time fly. I only started to think about doing self-portraits with Sean when he was 2 weeks old. But I have PLENTY of pics from his first week anyhow, I'm not worried!
We hit our first milestone today, Mack lost the stump from his umbilical cord! Woohoo! Finally! Now hw can get proper baths instead of sponge baths.
A while back I won a gift certificate from Jenn for a contest she held on her blog. With that gift certificate I ordered 2 knit books. I got Knitalong: Celebrating the Tradition of Knitting Together by Larissa Brown and Toilet Roll Covers by Pat Ashforth. Thank you Jenn! I just remembered I'd forgotten to share what books I'd gotten from the prize!
And from my brother for my birthday, I got to pick out Lace Style & Wrap Style. (I already own Scarf Style) to complete the collection of those books!
And from the hubby, in addition to my iPod touch that I got for my birthday, I received Knit So Fine: Designs with Skinny Yarn by Lisa Myers.
SP12 Question of the Week #2: As a kid, what did you look forward to most about summer vacation/break/holiday?
As a kid I used to look forward to not having to do homework anymore. I hated homework and school work, etc. I also went to camp for years, and used to look forward to attending that and seeing my friends (whom I didn't go to school with!) And the summers that I got to travel, that was even better!
I'm beat. Feeding on demand is draining me! I will post more tomorrow.
ps - July sock club kits sold out - but the August 2008 Sock Club is now up for sale. Due to the demand, I've decided to NOT take a vacation with the sock club right now, so stay tuned for some awesome goodies if you sign up!
