Wow, our son has hit the double digits! 10 months old, how did that happen? Finn is a truly incredibly little boy, and we couldn't be happier. He is doing so many new things, it's hard to keep up! First and foremost, he is always on the go - he crawls super fast, pulls up on anything (furniture, walls, us, the dog, etc), climbs the stairs like a pro, babbles like crazy (especially loves to say Dada, Mama, and hi - although we are crediting his first word as Dada because the other day he actually pointed at Mike and said 'Dada!'....how can you argue with that???), waves hi and bye, points to things, is a madman in his walker and just SUCH a happy happy boy. He is always giving us smiles and giggles and making life generally pretty incredible. Using a few helpful tips from his pediatrician, he has been sleeping through the night without a peep for about 3 weeks now - goes to bed around 7 and wakes up between 6-7 (and sometimes 5:45, much to mommy's delight!). Although he definitely prefers mommy and daddy, he has very little stranger anxiety and seems to have a blast during his 2 days a week of daycare. His teeth eruption seems to be slowing down a little bit and we are holding steady at 8 - 4 on top and 4 on the bottom. He is a great eater, 3 big meals of day with oatmeal and fruits or veggies along with lots of milk. He also likes to snack on cheerios, rice chex, biter biscuits, zwieback toast and graham crackers. He continues to love to read and picks the books he wants you to read to him - and gets pretty annoyed if you don't oblige! He has all of a sudden completely abandoned all use of the pacifier, which is fine by us!
Things he is learning - we just started a little sign language last week. Words like eat, more, water, and milk are what we are focusing on. He is learning to drink from a sippy cup, roll a ball back and forth to us and learning what 'no' means - like, "No, Finn, you can't take a bath in the doggy's water dish!"...right now, he just looks at us with his head cocked when we say 'no', but you can tell he knows it means something!
This is the look he gives when we tell him 'no'
What, me? I'm a perfect angel!

We went over to Carl's house for some playtime on his fun cube. While the babies don't play together yet, they do seem to enjoy being around each other.
Here's a great picture of Finn's love affair with ceiling fans. He could stare at them all day!
