It's no wonder that Finn takes 3 naps a day! Whenever he's awake, he's on the move! I wish sometimes that I could remember what it felt like for everything to be a new discovery. Finnegan's favorite new toy is a long wooden spoon from my kitchen utensil drawer. Absolutely Loves It! He loves to wave it in the air. He loves to bang it against the floor. He loves to hit Mommy, Daddy, Darby, and even himself with it. This spoon is amazing to him. It should be called super spoon, and wear a cape, because on occasion, it will fly through the air. Not far (yet), but airborne it has been!
Finnegan's other favorite toy(and we all knew this was inevitable) is Darby-Dog. No, this is not a stuffed animal, although sometimes she does just lay there and resemble one... Darby is our beloved pet, and Finnegan's new best friend. This is however, at present moment, definitely a one sided relationship. The game goes like this... Darby's in one corner of the living room, Finn's in the other. Finnegan uses his newly acquired skills to crawl across the living room to Darby's corner. As soon as he gets there and lifts a hand to reach for the fur, Darby bolts to the far corner of the room, usually the one Finn was just sitting in. Finnegan proceeds to turn around, and replay the previous sequence over and over again, until Darby begs to go outside, or finds another hiding spot!
We faired the Big Storm that swept over the pacific nw last week pretty well. Given the power went out at about 10pm and continued to stay off until about 3 or 4 pm the next day.
We stayed at home and slept, and realized that wrapping Finnegan like a burrito didn't keep his hands or face warm. We spent the next day at Brandon's parents' home. Their power was out also, but they have a wood stove, and propane for the kitchen stove, and hot water. It actually turned out to be a pretty fun day!
