Happy first birthday to Finn! He’s been the star of this little blog lately. The last thing I posted was his birth story, and now I’m here again with a big batch of photos that I took of him today to mark him turning one. Anyway, I know we all say this, but wow, what a fast year! I’m really, really hoping this next year is a little slower, simpler, and easier going. That we’ll be able to savor our days a little more, not just survive them. But enough about that and more about Finn!
He is a mellow, happy little guy for the most part. His even temperament is matched by his tendency to keep out of trouble (for the most part). He started crawling a few months back and has absolutely no interest in standing or walking yet, but he definitely gets around! His favorite place to explore is the grass! The past few weeks have given us a handful of warm, sunny days where we’ve spent lots of time in the back yard together. He has four teeth on the top, four on the bottom, straight hair that’s the same color as his brothers’, skin that gets really nice and tan (I can already see it coming!), and- funniest of all- a tendency for really stinky feet, hahaha! His teenage years will be interesting… He’s been sleeping through the night for quite some time, eats pretty much all solid foods, and loves his pacifier. The lego table Thane built for the big boys is his favorite spot to play- the little ones are always drawn to the teeny, tiny toys they’re not supposed to have!- and boy, does he like to watch Asher and Silas wrestle. Finn’s starting to get in on the action a little too, especially when daddy’s there to play.
There’s more I’d love to say, but for the sake of time I’ll leave it at that and wish him one more BIG happy birthday!
