september twenty-one

This morning we had brunch at my cousin Phil & his wife Lisa's house. Their son Oliver is 4 months older than Sean. Also with us there were Jenn & her husband and their son Jakob, who is exactly 20 weeks (5 months) younger than Sean. Jakob is 13 months to the day older than Mack. The boys played really well together.

From left to right Jakob, Sean, & Oli.

This evening I went to my parents house for dinner (in between there was some kid nap time, and some adult tv watching time) and Sean didn't want to sit still for a photo tonight, but I wanted to show you Sean & Mack's matching shirts today. (It reads: My Mum Is The Most Beautiful Woman In The World). Hee hee! Yep, they're going to kill me one day in the future for dressing them alike in ridiculously cute to me but embarrassing to them shirts. I'll deal with it when the time comes.

There's been knitting last night/today/tonight, but it's top secret so I can't show you. I'm almost done the socks for the October Sock Club and they are looking mighty fine. I just love the colorway, and I think you will too! So go on over - and pick up a kit! You can order them here. They are ONLY on sale until a week from Tuesday, so act now!

This week seems to be full already. There is something everyday, and Sean starts daycare on Tuesday, so I have to be "around" in case they need me to come early to get him in case he's homesick, but I am hoping to keep him there all week for nap time so that he gets used to their format of nap time. I'm definitely expecting there to be tears when he starts on Tuesday. I'm emotionally prepared for that. My schedule this week is so packed that it'll be Friday before I know it. Next weekend already is booking up - and Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday of next week is Rosh Hashanah, so we're busy with family dinners and lunches those three days. But for now, tomorrow, we're going apple picking with Sean's class at the Y (I'm very excited) and I've got Mack's playgroup as well!

What do you think of the new look? I'm still playing around with it - there are still things to add back to my sidebar - but I was sick of the old look.... There is also something VERY special about the yarn in my banner - but I'll talk about that later on this week.... so stay tuned.

When I first saw your new banner, I thought I had clicked on the wrong site. Sometimes change is good. I like the new look.

Bertha said...

I too like the new look! Nice and clean and easy to read. I'm overdue for a bit of a blog re-do myself, at least a new banner or something. I can't wait to find out the secret to the banner yarn!

Is the sock club superwash yarn?

I like the new look a lot. By the way, any hints on when you'll finish uploading the yarn to Ravelry - I'm really curious about the yardage. I am constantly amazed by the size of people's stashes.

Okay, if I haven't said it before, I *love* all your pictures! Your children are so cute!

I like the new look. I love the matching shirts too. My oldest has a shirt that says "If you think I'm cute you should see my mom". I couldn't find one to fit my youngest or I would have.

Bea said...

The boys look cute. You've got a while before they kill you.

Did you dye the yarn in the banner? I think the site looks good. Its nice to have a change sometimes.

Tara said...

I wouldn't worry about the boys reaction too much. I mean, it's not like you dressed them in matching sailor suits or anything!

And I like the new look. It's not quite as "busy" as the previous incarnation. :)
