may twenty-four :: 125 weeks old

Sean is 125 weeks old today.

This morning my sister accompanied me to Jakob's 2nd birthday party, so that I had extra hands (very important when you're out of the house with 2 kids!) Jamie couldn't make it to the party.

The kids had a great time.

Sean spent some time reading books.

And playing in the kitchen.

Mackie enjoyed the slide.

And clapping his hands. He just started clapping his hands a day or two ago! It's a new thing for him! It's so cute when he does it, he gets so excited.

Me multi-tasking holding both kids during the singing of "Happy Birthday".

Cousins with 2nd generation kids. (We have a picture of the three of us with our first borns. We just had to do it with our 2nd kids!) Babies from left to right are Mackenzie, Henri & Spencer.

The first generation sons from the three of us (left to right Oliver, Jakob & Sean), enjoying pirate cupcakes. Yum! Sean kept asking for more all day. 1 cupcake was the limit though.

Sean & Mack got a lootbag and in Sean's (along with some other stuff) he got these wicked Sunglasses & this happy face ball. Sean LOVES happy face things. And the sunglasses were a huge hit. (And super duper cute on him!)

Though, the sunglasses didn't make it into the house. As Sean was entering the house, he tripped on something and with the sunglasses in his hand they both fell to the ground and the sunglasses snapped. (Sean has a bad track record with sunglasses - they don't last very long in his possession).

We came home after the morning party so that Mack could take a quick nap (or he doesn't function) and we let him nap for 1 hour. Then after Mack's nap, we packed up the car and headed out again. First we stopped by Ariella's house to bring her some lettuce plants and a cucumber plant for her garden, as we had extras and I didn't want them to go to waste. Then we headed to Jenn's house, for Jakob's family party. Yes, two parties in one day for Jakob! Lucky kid! The boys had a good time again, had more food and more cake and then we headed home around 3pm so that both boys could nap.

Tonight we went to my parents house for dinner, our usual Sunday night dinner at my parents house. (Even though we saw them for most of the day!) Nothing wrong with a full day of family!

Now that both boys are in bed, I'm catching up on some laundry. The laundry that never ever ever ends. I swear, I really don't see an end in sight, which is very frustrating!
