My Three Sons


Ahhh... my 3 sons. Lately I've been doing a lot of thinking about having just boys, and you know, I'm not disappointed at all that I didn't have a girl, and that I will never have a girl. I'm 150% okay with it. I love my boys. And I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. Ever. Boys rock. They love their mommy.


Mr. Mackie loves Macaroni. So much so that I call him Mack-a-roni. And he still will say back "I'm not Mackaroni, I'm Mackenzie". Giggle. Makes me smile. It's been a little challenging lately, as we're trying to potty train Mack. He hasn't been doing too well, treating the pull-up like a diaper. Maybe he's just not ready. I know that boys take longer than girls (in most cases) to train. We'll wait a bit and see if he's ready again soon.

Quentin at almost 6 months old (he'll be 6 months old on Monday - where does time go?) looks almost IDENTICAL to Sean at 6 months old. I swear, they're twins. A clone? We'll see as Quentin grows.


We went for a walk one evening, didn't take long at all for Quentin to fall asleep in my sling. Mack & Sean rode their bikes on our walk. Sean... has not been wanting to be in front of the camera really this week. Hope it's just a phase. And let's hope we have decent weather to take many more family walks this summer.

Even though Sean doesn't really want to be in pictures right now, I did catch him in 2 different videos last week swimming on his own in his class. It's awesome! So proud of his progress in swim class.


Quentin's also been working on his sitting. He's getting good, but not quite perfect yet.


This week Quentin tried cereal for the first time. (On video!) I was going to wait until his 6 month check-up but he was starring at my food from my plate to my mouth. So we tried some cereal on Saturday. I wanted to see what he'd do with it. While he's still unsure, it'll take some time.

What have we missed since I had a chance to really blog last? Mack turned 152 weeks old last Thursday, May 19th, Sean turned 229 weeks old on Tuesday, May 24th, and Quentin turned 25 weeks old on Tuesday, May 24th. I'm hoping to blog a bit more than I have, but we've been super duper busy lately. I'm not even sure I foresee them calming down anytime soon either. Summer is meant to be enjoyed, and filled with keeping busy. Busy is good though! (Though, sometimes I wish I had time to sit down and knit more, or read more).

I've got some free Huggies Enjoy the Ride Reward Points for you: BKTXHRBZFXLLPGB (5 pts) and BKWWNFSGBMJWPGB (1 pt). There's also a new poll up and a new video (for an added 3 pts total). Enjoy!

It's a good thing my 1st child was a girl and there's an age difference, because she was at least wearing pink. I wouldn't be able to tell her and her brother appart otherwise. Isn't that funny how that happens?

Quentin makes me smile. All three of your boys are so adorable.

What a beautiful family. My son hates getting in front of the camera, too, Robyn. In fact he still does and he is 10 now!
You are all looking happy and healthy. well done.
