9 Months old, Thanksgiving boy!

The holidays have taken on a whole new meaning now that we have Finn in our lives. It feels so much more rich and meaningful to have him to share them with. We had a wonderful day yesterday - a big turkey dinner and lots of lounging around. A great day for Thankgiving and to celebrate that Finn is now 9 months old!
Daddy and Finn matched in their plaid shirts, so handsome!
We just can't get over those killer blue eyes

He is pulling up on everything these days - but sometimes gets himself stuck because he can't figure out how to get down.
Such a curious little guy

Thanksgiving kiss for mommy We were hanging out on the chair....
...and Hunter decided he wanted to join us!

It's a baby stair race with Ella and Jackson!

Reading with daddy before bed - he loves his books!

Finn's first snow

Okay, so this isn't technically the first snowfall since Finn was born, as there were a couple of dustings in late February and early March, but this is the first time since he has been awake and aware enough to care!
Well...let's be honest - he probably doesn't care. After all, he was more interested in the doggy water dish than in looking out the door.

Let the good times roll

Here is Finn after a bath "brushing his teeth".....he likes to chew on his toothbrush, and that's a good enough start for us. He now has 7 teeth! 4 on the top and 3 on the bottom. Seems like another one is popping out every couple of weeks.

Here he is reading one of his favorite books, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.

Finn is an unstoppable crawler now - he is so quick and keeps us on our toes. He is still tentative while holding on to furniture, but is always much braver if he is holding on to us. We walk sometimes when he is holding on to our hands, but for now he is happy to crawl.

Thanks for the fun shirt CR :)

Ray of Light

Mike caught some great pictures of Finn trying to catch the light coming in through the living room window.

On the move

Finn went from taking a few tentative crawls forward to being all over the place! It is very fun to watch as he explores his surroundings and tries to figure things out.
He is still pretty careful when he's holding on to things. I'm sure he'll start cruising around while holding on soon.

We visited the zoo today
