Jeff and I use the expression 'little boy tired' for Finn. It involves him sleeping in a weird position or those times when he is so zonked and just doesn't look like a baby anymore but rather a little boy- completely tuckered from a hard day of playing. I have a love/hate relationship with these sleeps. I love them because they are the cutest thing in the entire world, but I hate them because he is growing too fast! It's a glimpse into the days of him falling asleep on the kitchen floor or curled up in a ball beside the washing machine- crayons still in hand. Ugh! Look at that little face! And already he just cant put his toys down!

I found this photo this morning while trying to organize some things for Christmas- I just love it so much. My two boys looking so handsome. It brings back such wonderful memories of an awesome trip to Canmore with a few of our dearest friends. Jeff, you are such a wonderful Dad- I love seeing how Finn lights up when you are around. The excitement and full body wiggles that start whenever he sees you enter a room. It's the most amazing thing to watch you both together. I love you with all my heart and am SO happy Finn has such a wonderful father.

Little Boy Blue

We had a tough day today- lots and lots of tears from an unhappy little boy. But little breaks in bad moods for moments like these make all the hard times disappear.
Love you forever, my sweet little Finn.

It's been an eventful couple of days around here. On Tuesday, Finn cut his first tooth! He is a bit of a late bloomer compared to most the babes in his friend pool, but it's exciting that he is getting some chompers! He is definitely bothered by the pain of moving teeth- not sleeping well, fussy and not at all his normal happy self. All to be expected, I suppose. All this commotion has got Jeff and I talking about what special things we will do when he one day starts losing these baby teeth. It seems so odd to me that we give kids money from the tooth fairy for their teeth- so Jeff has come up with the idea of giving him special rocks that we find on walks or adventures, or little crystals and jewels with special stories behind them. I really like the idea, but 6 or 7 years from now when all his friends are getting 20 dollar bills (I'm accounting for inflation :) ) it might be another story. Only time will tell, but for now, I'm just going to enjoy the extra cuddles from my poor little man.
