(May it be said that birthing tubs are the most amazing thing!)

As long as he's not eating it!

Finn can help us take off all the peeling paint from our siding! Papa was sure to wash Finn's hands after.

Happy Birthday, Grandma Kowalsky!

I think we're being toyed with.

He had it perfect multiple times before the camera came out... gah!

Some Things Never Get Old

Construction and Prose Recitation, or Quick! Somebody Read Him Milton!

So Finn disappeared into his room after we got home from some morning errands and was busy for quite a while - and curious mom that I am, I came into "spy": here he had put on his hat all by himself and was as you see here...

SO adorable!

So, ok, it's not exactly an artful oration, but we haven't read from his "Panda the Race Car Driver" book in a month or so and he perfectly repeated the text from one page - did I say perfectly? What a guy!

Thanks, Nathan and Steph for his Christmas presents (construction toys and shirt! :)

Elephant Reprise

He came out of his room wearing it again:

We've Fought Off Scurvy for Another Day

Usually, he gives one each to Daniel and I and then he eats his - this was the first time he almost ate his before giving the last one away - hence our "uh oh's"... :)

Moving Colours

So Jennifer, since you suggested showing Finn the "Monkeys on the Bed" video, he asked no less than 20 times that day to watch it. Here is the last viewing of the day - and he is still completely mesmerized!

Our neighbourhood is one in Saskatoon has the coolest garbage system! We all have a square dumpster on wheels that we take out to the street once a week in the summer (once every two weeks in the winter) and they have these special trucks with a robotic arm that reaches out, picks up the dumpster and lifts it and empties it into the truck's back. Finn enjoys watching it come each week.

Looks like I should try for another video of it - and actually go outside to film it so the tree isn't in the way! (and Finn's comment about the truck behind the garbage truck is in reference to our sweet next door neighbours who drove us out of town last night in their truck to buy up a "new (to us)" ($25!) deep freeze because ours broke).

Typical Evening Antics great, yet so "normal", I haven't recorded it... until now :)

Finn showed up in the living room with this "new" find from his toybox.
