Water Fun

Mike, Finn and I got to enjoy 2 full days off together this weekend (anyone who knows our schedules knows that this is truly a great feat!) We went to the pool on Friday and then to the Aquarium on Saturday where Mike did a dive with the sharks!

11 Months Old!

WOW! Our baby boy is 11 months old today! Finn is growing, learning and changing every day. His favorite new thing to do is clapping - he is very proud of himself. He climbs the stairs like a pro, has finally learned how go down the stairs backwards and get off the couch, cruises along the furniture and his stand up toys and crawls incredibly fast. He points all the time and loves to point out all the lights, lamps and ceiling fans.

Such a beautiful boy!

Mr. Personality

Finn's personality has really emerged the last few weeks and he is so much fun. He is learning that he has free will and doesn't like to sit still! He is constantly exploring the house, finding the tiniest little things on the floor to taste (much to our delight), climbing everything he can and figuring out how all his toys work. He is still not showing much interest in walking - we try to grab his hands and help him to walk, but he prefers to crawl.

I asked him "Where's daddy?" and he smiles and points...

Doesn't this make you want to run out and buy Aquafina?
I should try to sell them this picture

His buddy Carl came over for some playing today

Busy at the activity table

Babies LOVE ceiling fans!

Happy New Year!

2008 is off to a great start already - Finn is learning something new every day it seems and keeping us on his toes with his increasing confidence and stability on his feet.

A couple of his new years resolutions:

Gain 10 pounds

Stay in good contact with my close buddies
