july twenty-nine :: 58 weeks old

Mack is 58 weeks old today.

This morning Mack and I got to his class at the synagogue 15 minutes late. It took me forever to get Sean out of the door today after letting him sleep in. What a huge mistake that was. It's not good to let him sleep in (may affect his nap at daycare) and makes him really slow in the morning.

We had a good time in class today regardless of being late. We're really enjoying these summer classes. Turns out that a mom in our Wednesday class (today) is the daughter of my Aunt's friend. Small world! I thought she looked familiar but couldn't place her. She actually asked me today if I was friends with my cousin, but I told her she was actually my cousin. (Yes, Jenn, you!) I believe her daughter is 8 months old now. What a cutie.

After music class Mack & I went to the train station to pick up my husband's cousin and her daughter Rosie. They're staying with us until Sunday. Jamie's not really close with his cousin, but they're going through a rough time right now and I wanted to offer her 5 days away from "life". I showed her the house she grew up in (she was really happy about that), which was literally around the corner from my current house (2 streets away). She hasn't lived in Montreal in years though. They came back to our house, settled in, chilled while the two babies napped. I picked up Sean from daycare while my husband's cousin stayed back at my house with the 2 kids, as there is not enough room in the car for all of us. The bucket car seat which Rosie is in, barely fits in between both my boys' car seats. So if I can avoid it, I plan on NOT having all three kids in the car at the same time, except for Saturday night when we go to a friend's house about 30 minutes away for a BBQ. After Sean got home we played in the park across the street in the circle until it was dinner time.

Dinner included some fresh picked items from our garden.

After dinner the three kids took a much needed bath (after playing in the sandbox). They had a great time playing in the bath together. (Don't worry I blurred out Mack's wee wee, but this was the best shot of the 3 of them together, so I had to do some photoshopping skillz to omit his precious package without it ruining the photo - but you see nothing, so job well done, right?)

After tonight's bath it seems like my boys have the EXACT same hair... and I just love it. I love their curls. They're just gorgeous. Too bad it's not my hair...! It's Jamie's 150%. And by them having the exact same hair to the tee.... means they both need a haircut badly. It's out of control.

Sean had a good time chatting on the phone to my mom tonight. The kid loves to call people. (I better check my next phone bill to make sure there aren't any long distance charges).

After the kidlets were in bed, we watched the first hour of Yes, Man. My husband's cousin got really tired, so she went to bed, and I'm about to follow. I worked on Ishbel while watching the movie. I've now gotten to the end of Section B for the second time for the large size. I'm almost there!

They are all so cute together. Sean and Mack are looking more and more like one another.
