04.12.10 :: 171 weeks old


Sean is 171 weeks old today.

Since the contractors started work on our attic today, I had my mom take Sean to swimming this morning. She got this great photo of Sean jumping into the water. The kid is fearless! At 2 and a half year sold last summer he was jumping (with a life jacket) off my parents diving board into the deep end of their pool. I’m so happy my kids are fish. Fearless of the water is the way to go.


Today the piece came to replace the SD card slot on my Nikon D60. I am SOOO happy that it’s back to the way it was before now. No more broken door. It took a lot more than just 2 screws to get the new door in & the old half broken door off. I was sweating it out for a bit there too – because the piece came with no instructions on how to replace it, and I couldn’t find anything on the internet. However, it’s fixed, and I will never break the door again (knock on wood!). At least now I know how to fix it!

As I said before, the contractors started working on our house today. It’s such a mess in here. (I can’t wait for them to be done in the attic). They said they should be out by the end of the week. Phew. I’m hoping that’s the truth this time. Last time (for the bathroom) it was supposed to take 2-3 days and they were here over a week).


The kids played on an old laptop that my dad gave them when they got home from school today. Mack was having fun typing letters into a Word Document. (It’s the only software that works on the computer).

He looked so serious composing his text.

Sean says he “checks his email” on it. (Though, he has NO idea what email is). Monkey see, monkey do.

I’m 7 chapters in (just over 100 pages) into the book I’m currently reading. I seem to be reading this one a lot faster than I read the last book I just finished. I’m really enjoying it, that’s for sure. It’s funny, light, and chick lit (my genre of choice). Very excited to see what happens next in the book.

Hopefully they are done when they say they are!!! [contractors]

Good to know, if I ever need to do camera surgery who to go to!! Glad you were able to fix it in an inexpensive way!

that laptop is just the right size for sean and mack! :) maybe Spin is more enjoyable for you (and possibly an easier read) hence the reason it's going faster for you.

Oh, I asked about the part in an email earlier. I guess I should have read blog posts first!

Émilie is the exact same way in the water, a real fish! Maxime is a little more cautious though, he doesn't like to get his hair wet! lol
