97th Percentile

Finn had his 18 month check up a month or so ago and we learned is in the 97th percentile. I literally asked what happens if his weight goes about the 100th percentile and we had a good laugh. But his height (I think it’s the 60%) has increased as well, so the doctor said he’s just a big boy and it’s fine!Oh, and the funny thing is, Finn had been sick a week before this and I felt like he was losing his chub a little bit. Then when we found out he weighs over 30 pounds, I realized it’s all relative hah! The bigger, the better, I think! Love this hunk!

Another Haircut

Finny got another haircut and it looked so cute! His hair just grows straight out, so the trick is to keep it short, I’ve finally realized. The bottom (before) picture makes me laugh so hard!

Our Little Pumpkin is One!

Finn turned one on September 18th! I’m still a little behind on his monthly posts, so that will come another day. We had a little pumpkin theme and celebrated with cake with family and some close friends. Finn got some cute clothes, trucks, a spin and sit toy, and a bunch of new books! It’s been so nice to have some new boy toys around here! It’s been adorable to see him figure out the new toys and even make sounds for his trucks and airplane.

Well, I couldn’t chose just one picture of Finn eating birthday cake because they were all so cute, so here are like a dozen photos of Finn doing the same thing from different angles. Haha!

Finny Babe: 10 Months

At ten months, Finn changed his look from a baby to a big boy. I think part of it was his hair. His hair lightened up a lot from being outside so much and just grew like crazy. He has had two haircuts in the past three months and already needs another.

Finn started pushing his walker toy around like crazy at the end of July and walk walking around the furniture, then he took a couple steps here and there, but didn’t officially start walking until about a week before he turned 11 months.

He started slowing down in eating around ten months. Suddenly he was a little pickier about what I was feeding him, which was so strange. But on the upside, he got really good at ten months at using finger foods.

Not much else happened, but he still was the sweetest and most easygoing baby ever! He smiles at EVERYONE. Says Dada all the time and occasionally will say mama. Time is flying by!

Finny Babe: 9 Months

I’m so behind on Finn’s monthly posts but I have hundreds of photos and don’t want to forget these precious moments, so I’m going to try my hardest to remember how he was back in June.

Finn started crawling in June, about half way through the month. It was pretty crazy how he just started crawling and then just didn’t stop! Suddenly my little sweet infant was so curious and wanted to get into everything and anything. The pool opened in June so we also took him swimming quite a bit. He loves the water but it tires him out, he would even fall asleep on me on some days (something that Eva never used to do).

Another first for Finn in June was that he got a haircut! It was getting quite long, so I couldn’t wait any longer. It made him look like such a big boy!

Some other memories/favorites: being carried in the Ergo carrier, everything his sister does, splashing in the water, eating all food, standing up and moving along the furniture, smiling at everyone, seeing dad when he gets home from work, saying DADADA, saying “aaah duh” when he’s all done with something.

I’ve got a bunch of videos of Finn but that will have to come on another day. Finn is honestly one of the sweetest and happiest babies I’ve ever seen. 95% of the time he has a smile on his face and is just SO easygoing. I’m grateful for my happy baby to remind me of all the goodness and light in the world.
