German* Morning Nap

(To say the least, it's been a challenge during our basement construction to find a relatively quiet place for Finn's naps. Now that it's warming up outside, the back deck proved to be the most brilliant solution.... Until they started using their power saws outside, and woke him early into his afternoon nap... Aaarrrrggg!)

(*I say "German" because when we were there for Christmas, we were told that babies are often bundled up and set outside (the weather is like Vancouver's) to get fresh air while they nap).

If you look closely...

..there is discernible movement!

Basket Case

Finn was playing today at the kitchen table with a basket full of toys and when I came back into the room, he was enamoured, as always, with the basket, but he'd pulled it over his head and was looking through the slats:














I tried to catch him pulling the basket back onto his head, but in this video, he just talks to it:

...in this video he just eats it:

...and in this video he almost does it!

But not quite.

Wheelbarrow ride.

(Our alley looks like it could belong in a developing country)!

The Beginnings of Mobility - in Reverse.

Quite candidly speaking...

(The buzzing in the background is the pneumatic chisel the contractors are using to remove our crumbling foundation in the basement).

Revenge on Bora!

(Bora discovered the playpen that Finn's been sleeping in and decided at 2:30am that it looked much more comfortable that her spot on the futon. Crying ensued. Finn takes his revenge the next morning by disposing of her bowl of catfood! I see how things around the house will have to change a bit as he becomes more mobile...)

Bathed in Sunshine

Mom had the real tub full of twigs (I think she's hoping they'll make flowers earlier), so I needed a bath and they just filled up this big black plastic bin and set me in a square of sunshine on the kitchen floor. It was fun!

Morning Chores are My Favorite!

Every morning when mom makes the bed, she makes it with me in it! I like Saturdays best because my dad's home, too (and so he could record us).

My Mama is Crazy

(As seen in this video, it's so hard to get him to talk when the camera's in front of him! He is quite a chatter box...)
video

(So, I tried a new strategy - random video footage as I worked in the kitchen, and the audio from the camera finally picked up his sweet sounds!)

Bestest Morning Ever

(Tuesday mornings Finn gets to see both his parents when he wakes because Renae drives Daniel to work so she can have the car for the day.)
