See that "Sort-of" Smile?

Finn's not afraid of the water like we were starting to think. He just didn't like the pool we were going to. Not that he should, it's just a lap pool in the dark basement of our gym. We heard from one of Brandon's co-workers about a pool she took her kids to that's about 20 minutes north of Seattle. We took the drive and boy was it worth it. It took him a few minutes to realize that it was alright and now he's asking to go back. Which we will... soon.

Finally Conquered Pants

When I was pregnant with Finn, before I knew he was a boy, I thought it would be easier to sustain my sewing habit if I had a girl. Dresses, dolls, you know that sort of thing. I have since learned that I'm having way too much fun sewing for a boy! One thing I've been trying to figure out since he was born, almost 3 years ago, is the perfect pair of pants for the boy. The other day I did it! YAY! They're cozy fleece with cotton print lined pockets. I even added a pocket on the rear. I want some.

The "Boy Cousins" came over to spend the night on Saturday. We all had a blast, especially when all the boys decided to attack Brandon on the living room floor. The night was filled with fun, giggles, pizza, knock-knock jokes, movies, fighting over toys, a couple time-outs, and ended with 3 very tired boys passing out and snoring by 9.

When No One's Looking

Finnegan didn't know I was peeking around the corner with the camera. What can I say... the boy enjoys his books. This particular one was a favorite of mine when I was little (still is) and is becoming a fast fave of Finn's as you can see by this video.
