september sixteen :: 13 weeks old

This morning I got up when Mack got up for the first time today and then fed Mack and put him back to sleep. I started doing stuff and got organized for the day. Sean woke up this morning and was talking up a storm! Usually he starts to cry in the morning, but he's been talking lately, mostly babbling. I'm hoping that the actual real talking starts soon!

Mack is 13 weeks old today. Tomorrow he's 3 months old. Time flies. It's going by fast!

Today Sean & I had a doctor's appointment. Sean's head is growing, and is still in the 25th percentile. I guess having a small head runs in the family, as Mack's head is still in the 3rd percentile. I guess I just produce small babies. I'm hoping they out grow that though!

Mack now weighs 12 lbs exactly. My big boy! And Sean's now at 26 and a half pounds! I can't believe it. Both are on their own growth curve - Mack in the 25th percentile and Sean still in the 50th percentile for weight.

I ran a few errands this afternoon with my mom and we tried Mack out in the little stroller. He seemed to like that he was able to look at everything! He really does truly hate the bucket. At lot of the time he lets you know that he does NOT want to be in there.

As I mentioned, some mail came yesterday bearing yarn:

Araucania Ranco Multy #307

Araucania Ranco Multy #304

Lillian gave me an I Love Your Blog Award recently. I kept forgetting to blog about it - sorry for the delay. Thanks Lillian! So now it's my turn:

The rules are:
1- Post the award on your blog.

2- Add a link to the person who gave you the award. (Above - done!)

3- Nominate at least 4 other bloggers and add their links:

I love Lillian's crafty blog, but I'm not going to tag her back, so I nominate also:
Amy, Jenn, Rhoda, Bea, Tara, Cynthia.

In Robyn's Nest news, I've restocked and gotten some new colors in Cascade 220 Superwash. There are some great baby colors, and superwash is great for baby knits! Also, I wanted to remind everyone that the October Sock Club is up for sale, as well as the November Sock Club Ultimate kit. There is a regular November kit - in case you do not want the November Ultimate kit, but still want to partake in the fun! October's kit will be on sale until September 30th or until it sells out.

Tomorrow on tap I've got my first Aqua Strollers class with Mr. Mack! My mom will be watching Sean as I work out in the pool! It'll be his first time in the public pool. He'll be suited in a one piece bathing suit - I'm super excited to see how he reacts in the pool for 45 minutes! If I have to cut it short, I will - gotta start slow. In the afternoon we have plans, but I'm not sure where yet. That has yet to be decided!

Oh! I forgot - after playing telephone tag with the daycare for a week I've got an appointment on Thursday to go "see the facility". Apparently when they tell you this - that's your "in". Crossing my fingers it all works out and that I can start him by October 1st latest! It'll be such a help and some of his friends go there, so I'm aiming for more social interaction with other kids!

Lets see. Thank you for the award. I always though Sean's head looked like the right size for him. The yarn is really pretty. And yeah for daycare and aqua class!

Bertha said...

Ooh, I love that last skein of Ranco! Beautiful!

Mack has such a cute little smile. He's getting so big.

Shelley said...

Your boys are gowing fast and they look as cute as ever!

Love your yarn! I got some of that too when I was in Korea..I think it's the same as your second picture.

Also, the scarf I'm knitting (pics on my blog) is done in the same yarn I sent you. It's the same colourway so you can see what it looks like knitted up.

Wow! Mack and Wyatt are almost the same weight but Wyatt is only a month old...I guess I just have fat babies!
