"Hazel's" Pony!

Hazel enjoys coming upstairs for a ride on "her" horse. "Weeeeeeee!"

SpaceMan Spiff Makes Alphabet Soup.

I love it when Finn plays contentedly on the floor as I work in the kitchen. He's such a pleasant baby! (Baby or little boy? Ah!) Lately he's really been into pouring and transferring toys from one receptacle to the other. So sweet!

Hi Mr. Spiff!

Papa, Read me a Book! (Please)

Finn's been requesting book readings for a couple weeks now, but his faster-than-light page turning is a new "skill"!

Balls!

Finn demonstrates at home the laws of gravity that he discovered the weekend we ate Thanksgiving dinner at Lee and Twila's:

(And sorry for the shakey-cam; I had zoomed in initially because he was across the room, but then he walked towards me and once you've zoomed in for a video, you can't un-zoom while you're taping. So there's my disclaimer :)

Computer Wiz

He had been putting "input" (scraps of the old phonebook) into the empty drive slot, but as it always is, he stopped by the time the camera came out!

Mealtime Antics

He still shows no real preference for one hand over the other: video

Looks like meal time's over, Mama!

Nuts and Rocks

Hope they're not too dark?

Baby Finn's favorite thing of late is to "dump and fill". Here he has (and many times before) dumped Grandma K's nuts from their reindeer basket and mixed them with the special rocks from the candle holder (a plate). A "fun" sorting task for mama after, as the "fill" part of this equation is usually left undone.

The "motorboat" sound he came up with all by himself the other day.

And some more real walking action.

I'm gonna get yoouuuuu!

He usually stops in mid-crawl and waits to be caught, but we didn't seem to quite "catch" it on this video. Cute anyhoo.

What is going on in the Kowalsky's Backyard?

A Thanksgiving weekend surprise! (The influence of our new Uncle Joe is far-reaching and highly effective. The natural K siblings could never have convinced their father to rent one, ever! Whoa. :)

Baby Finn's contribution: VB CA Ω ZZZZΩ¸ (from the "hand" of babes - he got ahold of the keyboard and was gleefully pressing the buttons :) Hey, how did he make that omega symbol? Our baby is a genius!

Lemon!

This isn't the greatest video (Renae's actually talking to her dad on the phone), but it's funny because it's the second or third time that he's wanted to eat a lemon and it always ends the same!

Attempts to Catch the Early Walking Days...

...weren't too successful:
video

The backlighting on his head and the glowing hair - so sweet! But no video-evidence of steps :(
video

This one I think he actually takes steps, but those dear batteries just couldn't take it...!

Thanks Diana for the Pirate Book!

video
(I'm not sure if you can understand what I was telling Daniel; so let me tell you: I was saying that I hadn't even let Iris look at the book when we opened the package that afternoon because I knew Finn had to be the first to read his special pirate book from Diana.)

I'm still trying to find the camera - these are the last videos I uploaded and I sure hope I find it soon!
