april twenty-nine

This morning I ran into the nutritionist's office after picking up my mother. She sat in the car for a few minutes with both boys while I got weighed in. I had a very quick weigh in today. As of today, I'm down 25.6 lbs. It's coming along. I'm not officially below the last 10 lbs. It's like 9 and change... I can almost smell the finish line!

The next stop was at my cousin's house for her grandson's Brit Milah. (Above is myself with Mack and my sister holding Sean). (Both boys look so mature/older in this pic above.... gosh is time flying by).

I love this picture of Sean giving me a kiss. He's such a sweet boy. There's going to come a time where he is not going to want to give mommy kisses in public anymore, so I need to cherish these moments as they are here.

Sean had a good time playing with his Uncle today.

As well as with his cousin Oliver.

It was nice to have my mom's side of the family together for such a happy occasion and it was nice to meet my new cousin, Spencer, who's Brit Milah it was. There was a lot of food, good laughs, and lots of family. I love it.

Amy & I were wearing the same pants (but in different colors). I love these pants (which actually Amy picked out and brought home for me to try out). I love them because they are in a size that I haven't worn in years. I'm certainly not complaining! Amy insisted we take a picture of the two of us wearing our new pants.

This afternoon I was very blessed. I managed to get Mack down for a nap at the same time that I was getting Sean ready for his. I didn't send Sean to daycare today, since Jenn was bringing Jakob to the Brit Milah, I figured Sean could go play with Jakob and Oliver (whom are all 5 months apart. Oliver is 5 months older than Sean and Sean is 5 months older than Jakob). Mack is super easy to get down for a nap, he gets his bottle, and then his dream screen in bed (which plays for 15 minutes, but he's usually out cold before it's done). Sean on the other hand, has music going, (Baby Einstein Classic Lullaby), and gets 3 (yes, THREE) stories, before nap (or bed) time. Lucky kid. Sometimes he tries to con more stories, but I try to stick to no more than 3. So today, I read him his 3 stories, and well... he has started this new thing lately. He will now put his hand on my cheek, very lovingly and soft, and say "Lie down mommy"... so today, I did, and passed out. I don't even think I lasted 30 seconds awake, I was sooo pooped. I napped with Sean in his bed for a good 2 and a half hours. I cannot tell you the last time I napped. It was definitely before Mack was born. (I used to be able to take naps whenever Sean was napping - yeah, well with 2 kids, that doesn't work so easy). Even though Sean's in daycare, when Mack's napping there is 400 things to do around the house that I never get the chance just to close my eyes and nap. So today's nap was super nice, and very needed.

Sean woke up first, and woke me up. Shortly after we got up, Mack got up. I made sure to have Mack fed by the time Jamie got home from work. His only request on nights that I go out is that Mack is fed. (Apparently feeding both kids at the same time (Sean does feed himself) is hard to do. It's okay, it's the least I can do for a night off! So I fed Mack, Jamie got home, I got ready and headed out the door for my busy evening.

First I met up with West Island Knits/Crochet. I worked a bit on Mack's Moss Block Cardigan.

After being at knit night for about an hour, I left for about 2 hours and went to a mommy dinner for the ladies in Mack's new playgroup (the only playgroup I've been attending as of lately). Jenn was there at dinner too, and we had a good time. It's super nice to see these moms outside of playgroup and without any kids. The conversation was good and the food too. I hope we get to do this again sometime soon. I'm really glad to have met these moms.

Then after dinner, I headed back to knit night, and worked on the Moss Block Cardigan again. A nice sized group.

I came home and I finished the Moss Block Cardigan. Phew! Done! Tomorrow I will weave in the ends and sew on the buttons. I've got the most adorable buttons (Baseballs!) Stay tuned tomorrow for an FO!

I think Mack and Sean look older in every picture you post. They get older too fast don't they?! You and your sister look super cute in your semi matching pants.

Congrats on the weight loss.

I have to tell you something that my pediatrician told me when my oldest was a baby (and repeated with the subsequent two). When the baby (or babies) go down for a nap, you do too. All the stuff you have to do will survive without you doing it right then. Seriously.

Congrats on the weight loss. You are looking wonderfully well.
