march six

Mr. Mack woke up in a very good mood today - so happy about that!
Lately his mornings depend on if he's teething or not.
That results cranky or not.
No cranky today.

My first stop today was at the nutritionist's office. I've officially lost 15 lbs. Wow! (But boy have I worked my ass off to get there!) Still want to lose some more, but I'm officially now and pre-Mack weight. Just got to knock off to get back to pre-Sean/around my wedding weight. I can do it. I can do it! I know I can! I've been there before, I know I can get back to my wedding day weight. (In 2005 I lost 25 lbs from March 05 to September 05). And to get back to that weight, I have to lose another 20 lbs. I can SOOOO do it! 20 lbs is nothing. Right?

Today Mack had his music class at lunch. It's only 30 minutes, but it's a nice touch to end the week off. Plus Mack gets to see all his friends. It's a lot of fun. I like socializing with these mommies.

We had a full class today (some moms & babies are not even in this shot!) I think we had more of a full class today because Emily (who is dancing in the middle had her older brother & sister with her today since it's Spring Break week).

This is Mack & his friend Aviva. He hasn't seen Aviva in over a month since she just got back from a trip from South America. I was actually talking to Aviva's mom today and she was telling me how my side-by-side double stroller that I loaned her (one that I myself got 2nd hand) was a life saver in both Chile & their trip to Vegas and she doesn't know what she would do without it, and I told her to keep it. (Aviva has an almost 4 year old sister). Anyhow, somehow at the end of the conversation she mentioned she had a jogging stroller and wanted to know if I wanted it - since I was talking about a thought about maybe getting one (now that that weather is better). So I'm going to go tomorrow to pick it up.

Mack now pulls himself up to the couch with complete ease...

Here's the step-by-step:

He's so proud of himself!

Today I went to the Bulk Barn to check it out. Mack was still in great spirits this afternoon, and no teething pain was bothering him today.

I had fun taking pictures of color & texture:

Oh, I just love color!

This evening my in-laws came over for dinner, and tonight we just ordered in for pick-up. No one felt like cooking tonight. After they left, Jamie & I did some tv watching on the couch once the kids were in bed. It seems like lately, we've just been hanging out watching TV. I can't even tell you the last time we went on a date, though, we do have two hockey games coming up in just over a week or so. Do hockey games count as a date? No kids are coming with us, and they'll be babysat, so I suppose it counts as a date! Or should I plan something else for us to do. Hmmm! I'll bring it up to Jamie & see what he says.

Ahhhh - The weekend! I'm looking forward to catching up on some well deserved rest. And the thought of losing an hour on Sunday (Daylight Savings Time) doesn't seem appealing either, unfortunately. Hopefully it won't affect the boys and their sleeping/napping/waking up times.

Congrats on the 15 - you can TOTALLY do the 20 - GO ROBYN!!
Congrats to Mack on the pulling up too - that's excellent work :)
and finally....
WHERE IS YOUR BULK BARN??? Is it new? I really really miss having a bulk barn around - I thought we didn't have any here...

OMG I can't believe there's a Bulk Barn in Quebec now... I really hope they open a few more.

DST doesn't seem to affect them too much. It's when we turn the clocks BACK that they really get their sleep patterns out of whack!

Bea said...

Congrats! 20 pounds should be nothing. You've already lost 15!

AWw mack is sooo cute. I love the progression shots of him pulling himself up.

I *love* my jogging stroller (when the weather is warm) because it lets me run and keep Stephen occupied (of course, I only have one baby!).

And, Mack is too cute, I love the progression!
