A favorite past-time; although this is the first time he crawled in the drawer:

... and also the first time he loaded the drawer again!

Shwashy? Sweshy?

Magnets often get "lost" under the fridge, so Finn was duplicating the action he had seen me do:

But what is that word!?

Out of Order

I uploaded these ones from (and after) our trip back from Lethbridge last weekend and forgot to post them until now (they're in order, and so are hidden below):
1. Monkeys and Lions Loop the Loop
2. From "Gamma" to Buckles to Playdough

Come Home?

Whenever we take the camera out now to take a video, Finn says, "Gamma"?

From "Gamma" to Buckles to Playdough

He just asked out of the blue for "Gamma" - missed that...

And for the record, he can say "Buckle"

Travel Peekaboo

Finn spontaneously started playing peek-aboo whilst travelling "home" from Medicine Hat (back to Saskatoon) this weekend!

Monkeys and Lions Loop the Loop

Ahem. Stephanie probably sensed a "disturbance in the force" when Finn started stuffing his animals under his car seat belts - rest assured, I have since figured out, once and for all, how to tighten things precisely...

Bag Head

Finn's done this for a while - voluntarily puts something over his head and walks around/plays peek-a-boo!

We don't routinely feed Finn cookies; but when we do - we usually get some great behavior - hence all the cookie action on video:

A Two-Person Job

How do little boys instinctively seem to know what screw-drivers are for? One day (a while back), Finn reached for Dan's multi-tool and started playing with it and the metal fasteners on his wooden high chair... What gives? :)

Here he's helping papa change the belt on our vacuum cleaner.

And Counting:

Both Daniel and I agree that Finn has digressed a wee bit (Jill can vouch for that), but here's an attempt at catching him counting:

He seems to get lost around 4, 5, 6,& 7, but when he started (surprising us with what he knew!), it included all even numbers after 1...


C&J, you saw a better version of this live through Skype, but this is what we had tried to capture for you a couple days before:

What we were trying to capture was Finn standing on one of Grandma B's chairs (is that ok Grandma???) yelling "TALL!" over and over and over... Where was the camera when we needed it!

Third (and last) of the "missed" videos:

Camera Arrives!

Looks like it came through Swift Current - Hooray! There were a few videos (precious few) that were waiting to be downloaded from it - I'll post reminders as they'll be in consecutive order by date (so below these posts)... Finally! Back on track.

After waiting since before Christmas,

and both apron-clad, Mama and Finn finally make sour cream cookies! (Thanks for the camera, Terepockis!)


After Daniel and I exchanged blank stares as to the sound a hippo makes, we finally succumbed and took Finn to youtube to sleuth out the truth - and see for yourself if Finn is right... (might as well search for giraffe sounds, too - surprising!)


...we borrowed Mrs. Cathy's camera.

Finn's been sick with a cold he caught from a friend who goes to daycare (that cesspool of disease and sickness! ;) -hence his lethargy... Dear punkin....

If the camera had arrived,

you would see footage of a young Finn atop one of Grandma B's slipper chairs yelling "TALL!"

Camera Update...

A parcel arrived by Canada Post this morning and was hastily unpacked; only to find that the camera was not among the other items mom shipped that we had forgotten in Medicine Hat... A quick phone call revealed that it is indeed still there (whoooooops); and will be on the bus tomorrow morning? Please accept apologies from the MH Kowalskies! Sigh...
