Today Sean and I just hung out. He didn't wake up till 7, which was also a very nice treat. From there he had some fun times in his exersaucer and then around 9 we went for a stroll around the neighbourhood. It was so lovely outside I couldn't pass up the chance for some fresh air! The stroll put Sean to sleep and let me get some much needed house cleaning done. After his nap he was ready to eat and play some more. I put him in his Jolly Jumper much to his delight! He is so funny in that thing. He'll stand there all serious like and then he just seems to get his wacky on and he flails his arms out and slaps his belly then kicks out his legs. It reminded me of those step dancers whose mid sections would barely move but their legs were going full tilt.
Here are a couple cute pics from today:

I quickly got out, shut my door, opened Sean's door, grabbed him, shut his door, then I stood in a stupified gaze..There on the passenger seat was Sean's diaper bag..(So.. big deal you say) well, you see the problem is that I locked my door and put the car key in the diaper bag...I also locked Sean's door..so there we were on the outside looking in. My notes, my Bible, all of Sean's nessecities were in the locked car.. I guess I was about to actually find out what it was going to be like to speak without my notes....Yikes!
As I walked into the school I was greeted by Gloria Wooldridge, and I'm sure that God put her there on purpose. She asked me how I was and I told her what foolish thing I had just done, she quickly took me aside and prayed for me. It was wonderful, she reminded me that this was about God not me..How reassuring!
My time at Chapel was awesome, I had no notes, no Bible but I had the peace and love of Christ leading me every moment, it was more than I could have hoped for! Praise the Lord!
So now, that that was over I still had to find a way back into my car. I called my husband ( his office is an hour's drive from here) and asked him what he thought would be the best thing to do. He thought I should call our landlord's son and see if they have a key to the house (the landlord is away to B.C right now and they have a spare car key). So I called, only to realize that their son and daughter in law were also away... The secretary at Grace, Judy Fanning (who is a most delightful woman, I'm so thankful for her helpfulness!) mentioned that maybe there is a spare key hidden at our house..I thought this was a wonderful idea so she let me borrow her car and I drove over in search of a hidden key..no such luck..I also tried every door and looked at every window, the place was locked up tight.
Back I went, I finally decided to call my dealership..boy did I feel dumb! When the lady answered I told her I was about to ask her one of the dumbest questions she would probably have all day. So I told her my situation and she put me through to the Service guys. Another thing about my Honda dealership is that its just down the road from the school! They said they would send a fellow up as soon as they could, which could mean 5 minutes or 30 minutes! Either way I was thankful that someone was able to help.
The service man was there in the 5 minutes and had my car open in less! I was so thrilled that I gave him a hug! I thanked him profusely and asked what the charge was..nothing he said, the hug was enough! How wonderful was that?!! Kudos to the Capital Honda Dealership!!
So thats my story..I'm just glad it wasn't Sean that I had locked up!
Here are just a couple pics for you to enjoy: hmmm for some reason Blogger won't let me post pictures at the moment..I'll try again later..Have a great day everybody! ...Finally Success!
More fun on the phone. And fun in the car!

"Is that you Grammy Peric?"
We tried to get him to say hello, but he was unusually quiet, we even tried showing him his own reflection in the mirror, which usually elicits at least a goo. Today we just got smiles and bubbles, which are definitely great, just hard to hear over the phone.
"Hey, thats me in there!"

Yes, so the other morning, this was at about 8:30 or so I went in to get Sean and this is what I was greeted with:
I love his little hand poking out!
He didn't seem too preturbed about his situation so I pulled the blanky that Gramma Hope had made him and this is what I found:
"Nothing wrong here Mommy! Heeheeeheee"
It quickly went from that to this:
Neener, neener, neener!!
Great, my son the practical joker!! Something else that happened yesterday, we made plans to travel to Ontario!! Thats right friends and family in that fair province, we're coming down!! I'll be bringing the camera so that you too may have your picture with Sean posted on this blog! I had been hoping to get down there for one of my friend's weddings but I won't be able to work that out so we're able to come down the following weekend!! At least Sean and I will be able to meet with friends and family. Daddy isn't able to come with us this time but, hopefully there will be other times that we can all go!
This should definetly be interesting, flying with an infant!

Then on Saturday night I went out with the girls to the Swiss to celebrate Jennie's birthday, which was great! Afterwards we headed over to Tammy's for games and good times, this time we let the fellas join us. What a blast. I think the girls had wayyy more fun than the guys! I mean we made up our own performing group, we did a little skit for them and played pranks on each other. Tammy was the first victim, when she headed to the washroom we all hid on her and then when Karen went to the washroom we turned the light off!! It was great! It really felt like old times. Sean came with us and slept peacefully in his car seat in Tammy and Doug's bedroom. Its great to have our evenings back!
All this talk of old times made me reflect back to when Sean was just born and how our lives changed forever. And now life seems to have come back to a certain kind of normal. It certainly isn't what it was before Sean arrived (nor would I want it to) but it is no longer what it was like when he was first born..thankfully..I'm certainly happy to have a good night's sleep again. But yeah, so I was going through some of his early photos and its so neat to see how much he has changed in just three months!
I'm including two pics, one from when he was just a day old and the other from about a week ago. In the beginning I totally felt that he was the spitting image of his Daddy but now he seems to have some more of my qualities. I think he has the Hope forehead and eyes, but he certainly has his father's head and nose and cuteness. Overall I would have to say the little guy is a nice mix of both of us. What do you think? Do you think he looks more like Marko or like me? Or maybe a relative?

All ready to go in my car seat!
"I love it when Daddy helps me stand."
"I LOVE Peek-A-BOO!!!"

Something you simply must know about Sean, dude loves to stand. In fact I would say that that is his favourite thing to do these days! None of this just lie on the couch/floor and play with things fella anymore..no siree bob. If the boy is awake he would like very much for you to come and help hoist his little body up to the full and up right postion so that he may survey his humble surroundings and do some wiggling if you don't mind! So funny. I love helping him up and seeing the delight in his eyes as he looks around and goos, but then by the 20th or so time my arms are dying for relief! So today I thought, okay little man, have I got the thing for you...I pulled out his exersaucer and plunked him in it..At first I wasn't so sure how he was going to deal with his new digs but after some gumming of the seat, all seemed well with his new spot in the Peric household. Thought you might like to see him in his saucer plus a bonus pic of him gabbing away in his bouncy seat.
"Oooh, this looks interesting."
"And so I says to him,'Look I'm gonna need that milk by noon!' "

Yesterday was doubly interesting since it was a 3:30 start and then when I was changing him I found this blister type thing on his leg and it appeared to have puss in it..(I know, not what you want to read about) but anyways, I called the doctor and went in only to find out it was a skin irritation and got a prescription for some ointment. Of course I'm thrilled that its nothing serious but I still feel a little silly. I desperately don't want to be one of those mothers that is off to the doctor's office over every little sniffle or such..Oh well, I guess its better to be safe than sorry.
Today was another 3:30 start, thankfully Sean is napping at the moment so I have some time to do some posting. I don't have any pictures to put up (still in the camera). I hope to have a couple more up this evening.
Have a good one everybody!

Right now the little lad is down for his afternoon nap...this is a great time of day. I can get stuff done around the apartment and write stuff for this blog.
Hope you're having a great weekend as well.

I think people used to use books with blank pages for stuff like this and they called them diaries and they were very secretive about what was in them..but now who cares who reads this stuff, the more the merrier, really! Isn't technology fun! Now you can share all your retarded thoughts and actions with all kinds of people..perhaps even people you don't even know!
I'm not entirely sure what exactly I'm going to want to post on this thing but hey we'll see what happens :)
