Wow, Finn was one month old yesterday. I seriously cannot believe how fast time is going by. I feel like all of a sudden, he's really learning how to do things - simple things like keep the pacifier in his mouth and suck on his hand, but it's incredible to see him change and grow.
We had a very fun week - his friends visited again last Sunday and we had a BBQ and enjoyed the beautiful weather. We dropped by Mike's work so we could show him off to everyone, we have had lots of visits from the grandparents, and we took our first trip to Target - woo hoo! Mike is leaving this afternoon to drive to New Mexico for an advanced scuba diving certification, so I will have Finn by myself until Sunday night. Thankfully I have a good friend who is visiting from out of town staying with me, so I will have some help. But it is a little scary to have him leave for 3 days! I'll be getting a little less sleep than normal, that's for sure!
Something random that I never realized is that it takes several weeks for the tear ducts of infants to develop, so when Finn would cry, it was just the sound...well he's gearing up to break our hearts, because yesterday we spotted the first tear - tried to catch it on camera...
We are really looking forward to being there for his "firsts"...he should start smiling soon and really start interacting with us.
Here he is with his Abe Lincoln shirt, courtesy of a coworker who is crazy about Abe. As you can see, Finn is very excited about it!
