Yes, there was knitting in the hospital! I actually got some knitting done here & there! Michelle who is in Montreal Knits came to visit me as she was on call in the ER on both Wednesday night & Thursday nights, so I actually got to see her a few times! It was really nice to see her! We even knit for a bit together before she had to go to work. She was able to stay after visiting hours were over, since she is a hospital employee! (A security guard would actually check our room about half an hour after visiting hours were over! On Friday night I actually hid my sister in my room when the guard checked! LOL) You were allowed to have your significant other, but that's about it. I have a picture of me knitting with Sean in the hospital, so I had to take one of me & Mack!
On Friday night after my sister left I typed up Mack's birth story and watched the movie Made of Honor, which I thought was really cute. (She stayed longer than visiting hours so that she could straighten my hair - it felt sooo good to get my hair done!)
I have some gifts that I got while in the hospital, I will be posting the gifts shortly, I have some stuff I want to show!
Now that we're home we're trying to get into a routine of some sort, I cannot wait to get back into my groove. The laundry needs to get done, and now there is an extra person to do laundry for! And I thought before Mack arrived that the laundry never ended... now it's just never ever ending! LOL
My garden is OUT OF CONTROL! I was away from it for 5 and a half days (in the hospital from Monday night until Saturday late morning). Look at the lettuce behind Sean!!! I will give an update of my garden shortly.
Sean is adjusting to Mack being home. Every day is only getting easier. Thank goodness. Though, I still see that Sean is mad jealous. It will take time, and it's breaking my heart, especially since I cannot lift anything heavier than Mack for 6 weeks until my 6 week check-up with my OB on August 5th. Actually, that's 7 weeks and a bit since I'd given birth I think, so if I'm feeling okay the week before, I will start lifting him again, etc.... he misses me carrying him around, etc. And it will be hard on me since I cannot lift him into or out of his high chair and I cannot lift him up or off his changing table nor his crib.... it's going to be an interesting 6 weeks.
Mack loves to make faces. Here's one that I absolutely LOVE! Just had to share his puckered little face!
I love my boys. They rock! I can't believe I have TWO boys now... seriously... two kids! I am a mother of TWO! 2! Deux! How'd that happen? (Well, I know how that happens, I just mean.... I can't believe that is has!)
Here is a close-up of Sean & his brother. I hope they will become best friends. I know that now it's tough on Sean and he's not really sure what is going on or why there is a little baby in the house, that is eating up his mother's attention.... but he'll adjust, I just know it.
Since I was in the hospital, I didn't get to Sean's 77 week photo, so here is Sean at 77 weeks & 2 days old. This week we'll get back on track. Though, the mirror shots will be on hold until I can lift him again, so we'll probably do some other sort of self-portrait until! I will keep them up though, I promise!
We finally are home & settled in, and we sat down for a family portrait! I just love my family!
And Sean looks like he might just love his brother after all! He loves to give him kisses & "make nice" to his brother. (We're trying to teach Sean not to hit and to "make nice"...., though he doesn't realize just yet that hitting hurts).
This evening we had my family over for dinner, and it was nice to have family around. We had some visitors in the afternoon, and everyone is so excited to meet Mack. I love knowing that a new baby brings family & friends together. It's great!
