Baby's First Halloween

Finn was a happy guy in his chicken costume for Halloween.

Daddy is silly...

8 Months!

How in the world did 8 months pass already?? Our little guy is getting cuter and more fun every day. Doing new things all the time, becoming increasingly aware of his surroundings and his free will :) He continues to be so happy and easygoing, a great eater and sleeper, and just generally excited about life.
After almost 2 months of struggling to get him to open his mouth for spoonfuls of food, a well timed cold which prevented him from breathing through his nose showed him how it easy can be to eat! Lunch and dinner time have been much more fun (and productive!)

Crawling is the latest and greatest thing to happen in his life. After weeks and weeks of slithering around, he finally got the coordination of hands and feet to crawl. He is an expert at the belly pivot (donuts) and loves to grab something and roll over on his back while he gnaws on it. His bottom two teeth are about halfway out and he now has four (yes, 4!) teeth on top.

A great action shot!

Here he is doing yoga - he really is quite Zen.
He still loves to hang out with his baby buddies. Here he is flirting with Ella. You can tell she really likes him by the way she sticks her fingers in his mouth! A sure sign of affection...

Fall is here

We can barely believe we are already halfway into October. The leaves are changing colors and starting to fall and that means nicer temps and the Colorado Avalanche games dominating the television set!

Gooooooo Av's!

Fish face

Finn had lots of great facial expressions at the Denver Downtown Aquarium last week. It was the first time we had been, and we had a great time. I think Mike and I appreciated the exhibits a little bit more than Finn this time around, but hopefully in a few months, he'll like it more!

Hanging in front of the shark tank

Watching the stingrays....they are so friendly and would come up the side of the tank and splash with their fins.
Dad and Finn chillin' with the eels...
...and checking out the sharks

San Diego Fun

A great time was had by all in San Diego last week! We had so much fun playing with Finn in the pool and showing him the ocean.

The water was VERY cold and he wasn't crazy about the toe dipping.

Passed out on the pillow after a long day outside
We lucked out having the row to ourselves on the way back, and Finn was a very happy traveler.
