Just today, after an unusual silence coming from FFC’s room, I tiptoed down the hall to peek in at what he was doing. Much to my surprise, I peered around the corner only to see him sitting in the (adult-sized) chair in his room, smiling and leaning back resting his head. Over the past few weeks, he has been trying his hand at scaling things — chairs and the couch mostly — which has made me quite fearful that I can’t really let him play in a room by himself, as gravity hasn’t revealed itself to him yet. However, on this occasion, he very happily and proudly sat on his chair, safe as can be. I stared at him for a few moments, trying to contain my laughter. As I looked on, I couldn’t help but think about just how big he is, how independent and capable, and how happy. When my laughter could be contained no more, I joined him in his room and passed him a few books. He enjoyed them, as usual, by turning the pages one after the other as quickly as he could. Then he leaned over to me, I scooped him up, and covered his face with kisses for probably the 64th time today.

Over the past two months, Finnegan’s two front teeth finally reared their painful heads. They’re mostly out now and appear to have a very cute gap (fingers crossed). His hair is growing like a weed, with sweet wispy curls in the back and a very model-esque, wavy, tousled look upfront. He is getting taller and leaner, with thinning legs and a boyish face. Still holding on to that perfectly plump belly though. He gives slobbery, open-mouthed kisses. He also loves to share his paci with you when asked, and will even take a Cheerio from his mouth and (try) to put it in yours. So generous. His favorite foods are tofu, tomatoes, and any/all beans. Sometime over the past two months he also slept! through! the! night! I woke up one morning a little after six to complete silence. I laid there, wide awake, refreshed and excited. Although every night isn’t as great as that first one, he is really sleeping like a champ. He is seriously considering walking in the very near future, all the while exploring the apartment pushing around his little crocodile walker. His sense of humor also took an interesting turn:  the most hilarious thing in Finnegan’s little world is the sound of a cartoon witch’s voice. Yep, gets a huge laugh every single time.
