january twenty-eight :: 25 months old

Sean is 25 months old today.

He's truly my silly kid.

When I dropped of Sean this morning at school, in his cubby was a paper with information for Valentine's Day and the list of all the kids in his class. They beat me to it! I was going to jot down all the kids name's, and now I don't have to! It's so cute that they're going to have a Valentine's Day Party.

This morning Mack had his music class again.
They thought he was too cute last week in the fish hat that he should wear it again.

Though, I thought he should be a spider this week. What do you think?



I think he looks mighty cute as a spider. These hats are totally awesome.
(From the USA apparently, I asked).

This afternoon Mack was being very fussy and so I decided to try to get him to take a nap. I decided to lie down with him. We napped for over 2 hours. I can't even tell you the last time I napped during the day. Not since before Mack was born. When Sean was born, I used to nap a lot when he was napping, or nap cuddled with him. Now that Mack is in our life, I don't nap. There is just too much to do during the day, since I like to spend my evenings with both boys, and so I try to get all the stuff I have to get done, during the day. On the weekends, it's rare that both boys are both napping at the same time, for the same length of time, but it does happen where there will be an hour or so that both boys are napping, and usually Jamie & I will hang out then and watch a tv show or a movie during that precious quiet time. But that 2 hour nap that I had today... I tell you, what very much needed. I am just so exhausted these days, and I'm glad to have been able to crash on the couch with Mr. Mack. I got to cuddle with Sean a lot when he was a baby, and not so much with Mack these days. I'm glad that I get to do this as well with Mack now. Even though it won't last too long.

This evening I decided to brave the nasty cold weather and head out to knit night. I had a really good time with Amy & Ariella. We went to a local Second Cup, and I fell in love with a painting that was on the wall at the coffee shop. I got in touch with the artist, and it looks like I'll be purchasing it. I need to contact her tomorrow. Anyhow, this evening, we had excellent conversation, and I got to finish the sock I've been working on. All I have to do is graft the toe shut, which I'll do tomorrow. Too tired to do it tonight. Within the great conversations we had tonight, it is such a small world. It's amazing how many connections Ariella and I, or even Ariella, Amy & I have together. I guess it's also a small world in the Jewish Community. (Makes it even smaller I think). It's also kind of nice that we know the same people. I can't even explain it. And it's amazing how people meet and cross paths with each other in life. I feel really blessed to know the people I know, and to be friends with the people I'm friends with. I feel really lucky.

I love the crazy face Mack is making in his spider hat. My brother is here and even he commented on how cute the kid is. Sean looks like he's having a blast with Mama as a trapeze!

OMG, Mack in the spider hat, TOO cute!! I'm jealous that you can sleep cuddled with Mack, June would never nap with me once she was more than a couple weeks old...if mama or daddy is around she REFUSES to sleep! Even now. She has to be in her own room away from us to sleep...when we go on vacation we have to get a room that has 2 rooms in it so she can have her own place to sleep where she can't see us. Lucky you!

I love the scrunchy brow action Mack has going on. He does look cute in both hats (I think the other kid has his eye on that fish hat lol)

I haven't seen you in so long, I really need to try and go to knit night sometime soon.

2 years old is so fun. One of my favorite pics of my daughter is at 2 and about one month, same as Sean, working so hard to stir cookie dough. Our younger daughter was just a couple of weeks old.

And nap whenever you can - that first year with two young ones is definitely physically grueling, but it will improve dramatically in the second!

That spider hat is so adorable! I had a puppy hat for Chloe and I swear they know when they look adorable and totally ham it up!

I'm not a fan of spiders, but Mack sure does look cute with that spider hat on.

Tara said...

Seriously, those pictures of Mack? Could they BE any cuter? What camera are you using, btw? The shots are awesome.

I know what you mean about being grateful for the people in our lives. I feel the same way. I'm glad you're in my life (aaaaw!).
