Too Big for the Bumbo (Friday, January 22, 2010)

Well, Finn is officially too fat for his bumbo. I really thought that we would get an entire year out of this little seat, but for the time being we can hardly squeeze Finn's little fat legs into it. His legs are funny! His upper body is pretty normal sized, but his thighs are enormous. When we try to pull Finn out of the bumbo his bottom and legs get stuck and when he stands up it looks like he is wearing a bussle (I have no idea how to spell this). I love having such a fat little baby!

Finn looks like an Ewok in this picture, doesn't he!
After work, we met Brandon, Carissa and Addison for some pizza at Painturos. Finn sat in his car seat on top of the table for at least 15 minutes while we ate our salads. This is a record for him. Of course, about the time I congratulated him he was ready to be held. I love eating pizza with Finn, I can hold him with one arm and eat with the other hand. It works out perfectly. Plus pizza is mighty tasty.

Finn must have had a big day at home today because he fell asleep fairly soon after we got home. As promised, this baby had some tummy time before falling off to sleep.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.

They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.

One of my favorites!

Another favorite.

And . . . another favorite.

They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.

It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."
