Watching big brothers play basketball before swimming lessons at the gym
|Taking a ride in the cozy coupe for the first time. This car has definitely been around the block just a time or two!|
|The boys were putting pieces of cereal on the floor for Finn to crawl and pick up. Hilarious!|
|More practice on Finn's belly scooting/crawling|
|I recently saw a commercial from a local news station in our area with a picture of a lawnmower in green grass and the caption read, "We are as ready as you are." Spring is here on the calendar, but its not really here in Minnesota. It has been 10-15 degrees below normal most of this month and we are currently getting a lot of rain. A lot of rain, like 3 inches in 3 days. Liam said the other day that once the snow melts in Minnesota, it usually rains like every day until its summer. He's right. John and I always joke that its not the winter that is so hard, its the wet, cold, and messy spring that really hurts in Minnesota. Anyway, we are looking forward to warmer weather soon and we are thankful not to be battling the tornadoes that so many friends and family have been dealing with in Arkansas. |
Finn is 9 months old today! He is really on the move. You can no longer set him in one spot on the floor with toys and expect him to be there when you turn around. He isn't quite crawling efficiently yet, but he scoots across the floor on his belly and he's quite fast when he sees something that he wants. His brothers play this game with him where they set out a little piece of cereal or dried yogurt puff and then they cheer him on as he "crawls" to pick it up.
He is big for his age and quickly moving from 12-18 into 18-24 month clothing. He smiles almost all the time and is very entertained by his brothers. He is a good sleeper. He generally goes to bed around 7 or 7:30 pm and sleeps until 7 or 7:30 am! Can't get much better than that. And, he still takes two naps and sometimes three on school days when he is interrupted by pick-up and drop-off times. He loves his blanket and his pacifier the most when he sleeps and he has become a belly sleeper with his butt sticking straight up in the air. We all love him dearly!
