june twenty-seven :: 78 weeks

Sean is 78 weeks old today. Boy do I love this kid. He's just too cute. I just feel so guilty that I cannot lift him up, so it's been a little tough around here. I'm not allowed lifting anything heavier than Mack for 6 weeks. (Which brings me to August 1st). (My 6 week check-up with my OB is set for August 5th).

Sean is just a bundle of laughs and I love it. I hope Mack is just as funny and smart as his brother!

Last night I received a really nice gift from Madeleine for Mackenzie. It's a really nice Classic Pooh dish set. It's very nice, and I think Sean already has his eye on it! Thank you Madeleine!

I also received a birthday gift from Jenn last night. She'd seen that I was dying to get a skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk, and asked me on Friday, June 13th while I was out running errands to stop into the Pointe-Claire Wool Shop and pick one of the skeins (they only had 4 skeins in stock to choose from) and the one above is the one I chose, and I LOVE IT! Thank you thank you thank you! It will become a shawl - I'm sure. Something pretty!

I also received my Woolgirl Sock Club kit #2 today in the mail. While it's not really my colors (I'm not into the whole Hallowe'en color thing....), I have to see how it knits up before I go ahead and de-stash it. (I'm still also waiting to see what Rowing Home, the Scout's Swag Kit #1 looks like knit up, no one's posted it to Ravelry yet, and I'm darn curious as to how it knits up).

And lastly, I also received in the mail my first Vesper Yarn Sock Club kit. I love it. The colors are just gorgeous & bright. Totally me. It kind of reminds me of Colinette Jitterbug's Jewel.

This morning it was just Mack & I as Sean was still at my parents house and Jamie went golfing with a supplier from work. I got a lot of orders from the shop packaged up and ready to be shipped. It was great to be able to do it with Mack sleeping in the swing and Sean not trying to climb all over me! In the afternoon Jamie took Sean with him to work for a bit, so I got even more time to get a few things accomplished. I think I will need a day like that here and there so I can actually get stuff done. That would be great. And much needed!

This evening we took a relaxing night on the couch, and I managed to get some stitch marker orders done. (Ok, a lot of stitch marker orders done)! Very happy with the fact that I was able to finish them all, in between feedings and what not! I love making stitch markers, they are so much fun. I love working with beads, so it's just that much more fun! We watched Last Comic Standing from last night while I was working away, and it was a good episode. I was however very disappointed with some of the comedians that they chose to move on. There were some that were even funnier that didn't make it through...

Happy Birthday Tara!

The sea silk yarn looks great. Can't wait to see what you knit it into, as well as what the other yarns become.
