2.17.11 :: 32 months/139 weeks


Mack is 32 months old today / 139 weeks old.


This morning, I found Sean learning to read on his Vtech V.Reader that he got from his aunt & uncle for his birthday this past December. I keep forgetting to download the extra stuff that you have to from the web for it, so it's limited on what he can do with it. I finally now have it installing so he should have it tomorrow when he wakes up.

This morning I took Quentin to the CLSC Clinic to get him weighed. I had a funny feeling that the doctor's office (old school non-digital style scale) was way off (telling us Quentin was 8 lbs 13 oz or 4.01 kg (4010 grams) No way! No way had he gained 7 oz in 4 days. I know my baby. I was right. As of this morning he is 8 lbs 10 oz (3.93 kg or 3930 grams), having gained 20g per day since Friday. I think from now on I will take him weekly to the clinic to use their scale to keep it consistent for weighing in. That's probablyS a good idea.


Here is my progress as of this morning on Wyatt.
I should be able to get it done soon, providing I have time to sit down & knit.

This morning I put together 2 baby gifts. Today I was seeing Caroline in the afternoon (see below) and tomorrow Quentin has a play date with another new friend. So I had fun with decorating and wrapping, and they were all set for their recipients.

This afternoon, Caroline was the recipient to gift number 1.


We had a nice afternoon of knitting & catching up.
I can't wait to meet her little man.
Caroline is now 38 weeks pregnant - so it will be any time now.


Quentin slept through most of our visit, but finally woke up a little bit before we left. He was all smiles once he was awake.


This evening I baked 8 banana breads. One portion of the recipe gave me 2 pans. I made 6 regular one and 2 whole wheat ones. The 6 regulars were chocolate chip ones, and the 2 whole wheat ones, one was plain & the other had chocolate chips in it. The 6 regular ones were for the 5 teachers (Sean has 3 and Mack has 2 + the coordinator of the daycare) as it is Teacher Appreciation Week at the daycare. We were told not to spend money, and since time was a factor (no time to crochet or knit anything) I decided to go with baking. The 2 whole wheat ones were for us at home (one is for tomorrow - we have some visitors coming over in the afternoon for "cake" & coffee (or tea).

That banana bread looks Dee-LISH! I think it was very sweet of you to give the teachers each a gift. :) Childcare staff are so deserving and need to be appreciated more. Hurray!
