Finnegan is amazing. His imagination has really blossomed lately and it's been hilarious to witness. Here's a few examples:
1. Last night I was making dinner and Finn was watching. I told him that I should go get a jacket because I was cold. He replied, "I make you a fire Mommy!" He got down from the chair he was standing on and proceeded to collect imaginary firewood from all over the house and then piled it together and started a "fire" for me on the kitchen floor. I just stood there in amazement. What amazed me even more was how gentle he was putting imaginary bandaids on my leg when I stepped through the fire on my way to the other room.
2.Last night again... We went through Finn's normal bedtime routine: Pajamas, brushing teeth, washing face and hands, saying goodnight to Darby, picking a story and hopping into bed. When he said goodnight to Darby, he asked, "What about Daddy?". This was the first time he's mentioned saying goodnight to Brandon, since he's been gone, so I rolled with it. I told Finn to yell "GOODNIGHT DADDY!!!" as loud as he could and maybe then he would hear it in Colorado and yell back. Finn yelled as loud as he could but we didn't get a response. I told him Daddy was probably already in bed and we'd try again in the morning. This morning I woke up to Finn yelling, "GOOD MORNING DADDY!!!! I'M AWAKE!!!!!" I didn't realize what he was doing, so I went in his room to ask him and he said he was "Yelling at Colorado".
3. Monsters. Lots of stuff about Monsters. But I'll save this for another post soon.
