David and Sharon's Wedding

Today David and Sharon got hitched. But before the "hitching" we had a big day. The day started with Finn helping me teach Sunday School. Midway through the lesson Finn started wiggling so hard that I couldn't hold on to him so I put him the floor next to the his stroller and continued on with teaching. Ever so often I would look down and see Finn playing quietly with the wheel of the stroller. Suddenly I heard this screech of panic. I look down to see that Finn has pulled himself up onto his feet but his hands were still on the wheel which was slowly but surely starting to move away from him. He had no idea what to do to get himself out of this predicament. Before I could act Finn had plopped belly first on the floor. He wasn't hurt, just a little scared.

After Sunday School we rushed home to put Finn down for his nap. We knew that we had a long day ahead of us so we wanted to let Finn sleep as long as possible. While Finn was napping Michael and I got rea…

The "Nappster"

I am proud to say that for the first time (at least with us) Finn took a two hour nap in his crib without pitching a screaming fit.

Prior to the nap I tuckered Finn out by letting him help me reorganize all the drawers in the kitchen. I would pull things out to throw away and he would sit next to the pile and shove things into his mouth. He brings new mean to the old saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure."

After Finn woke up from his nap, Finn, Michael and I went through our closets and made piles to give to Goodwill. I don't think that Finn felt real good today because he whined and whimpered most of the day. I tried to get him to play with his toys but all he wanted to do was sit next to me and/or Michael, whatever the case may be. Finally we put in his farm video and I laid down next to him on the floor and we watched the video together. Every time I would move even the slightest bit Finn would roll over and put his hands on my face to make sure …


Today Finn helped his Mama shop for something to wear to David and Sharon's wedding. When I went to pack the stroller I realized that Michael had the stroller in his car in Nashville. I had to get an outfit so Finn and I decided to go anyway.

Since I didn't have the stroller I had to carry Finn in one arm and shop with the other. Well, Finn is really heavy and quickly realized that I can't do any serious shopping without a stroller or a buggy. In desperation I decided to put Finn down next to me in the floor.
Finn had so much fun shopping. He chewed on every dress he could grab.
Once we got into the dressing room Finn spent his time licked the mirror and pulling all the tags off the clothes. Then he ate some yogurt sitting in the dressing room floor.

Next Michael met the two of us for lunch at the food court. Afterwards Finn and I grabbed the stroller from Michael's car and we went strolling at Dillards.

Next Finn accompanied me to the dry cleaners, a random lawyer…


Today was Finn's first day to go back to Victoria's since the surgery. Michael dropped him off before he went to work. When I walked into my office today I was startled to see a a bird hanging on the window. After I caught it I let it go outside. 30 minutes later I walked back into my office and I found another bird. Caught that one too!

After work I went to pick Finn up from Victoria's house. I was so excited to pick him up. I was sure that after going 9 long hours he would be ecstatic to see me. When I walked in I waited for the big Finn smile. Instead he just looked at me like he was really upset with me. I don't get it, Michael dropped him off, if anything he should be mad at Michael. After a few minutes Finn perked up and seemed genuinely happy to see me.

Next we went to meet Michael at Danny's to get our hair cut. Danny has been cutting our hair for the past five (5) years, but today was the first time Finn met Danny. Danny took a look at Finn'…

No News is Good News

Or so they say. Not a lot happened today so I am just going post a few pictures.

To sum up, I woke Finn up this morning at 7:00. When I went into his room he was laying on his side. I am going to give it one more night and if he continues to roll over we will have to try something else. I left the house around 8:30 and was gone until 5:00. Finn went to the Farm today to help with wedding preparations, so he didn't make it home until after 6:00. I was going to start going to a new bible study lead by my good friend Regina. The bible study started at 7:00 and I would've had to leave the house at 6:45 so I decided to wait and go next week. I wish there were more time in the day.

Addison's Third Birthday Party

Today Mama took me with her to Sunday School. I definitely want to go to Mama's Sunday School class instead of going to the nursery because I got to see all the girls and they brought me a ton of food. They waited on me hand and foot and best of all I got to see Victoria. I sat in my booster chair next to Mama and tried my best to behave. I lasted 15 whole minutes. I am certain that my Mama was proud of me. She later told me she wasn't.

After church Mama and Dad took me to Verizon Wireless. Aunt Em gave Mama her old phone and Mama went to have it hooked up. I fell asleep in the car so Dad stayed with me while Mama went in. She was in there forever . . . thanks Aunt Em.

Next Mama and Dad took me to the loudest place on earth . . . Chuck E. Cheese for my buddy Addison's birthday party.

It was so much fun . . . well that is at first. I got to ride on this frog thing that went in circles. I overheard Dad say that he was dizzy from following me around.
Next Mam…
