I'm sure this type of scare happens to all parents at some point and with this knowledge I have been dreading our turn since Finn was born. Despite the awful feeling, we all got through it and thankfully Finn is just fine.

Today was a fun day for Finn. He got to play in Cooper's new playroom, crawl up and down the stairs, ride in the wagon, hang out in the uhaul, smush cheese into Em's new floors, and drive his mother completely batty! We were there from about 9:30 t0 2:00 without a nap, so Finn was less than cooperative. Once we got in the car he was sound asleep before we even got out of the driveway.
At home Finn ate take-n-bake pizza and then played hide-n-seek with daddy. He read books with Mama and then watched Chess until he fell asleep.
On a side note, Finn is starting to repeat eveything we say. While getting Finn ready to go pick up the pizza, Michael said something or other "sucks." Just as clear as a bell Finn said "sucks" twice.
While at the pizza place, Finn's hairdresser Danny walked in to get pizza too. Michael said that Finn was very sheepish and wouldn't let Michael put him down. After Danny left, Finn was fine. He got into everything. Wow, those haircuts have really messed him up.
Finn was on cloud 9 that his kitty was in the car with him. When we got to the Vet's office I got Finn out of his carseat, grabbed the diaper bag, grabbed my purse and then grabbed the cat carrier. Even with locking the car door and opening the door to the vet's office I managed to not drop anything. When we got inside Finn immediately ran for the big black cat that lives at the office. We were called back to the see the vet pretty quick - my guess is because they were afraid Finn would drive all their animals crazy. The Vet shaved off some of Kodiak's hair and confirmed that he had an absess. Then she prescribed an antibiotic and an anti-inflamatory. She told me to watch him over the weekend and call her Monday to see what our options are.
When we got home Finn helped me clean up. He grabbed one of the dish rags, leaned over and mopped the floor with his hands (he saw me mop on my hands and knees the day before. It is so funny to watch him rub the floor with such vigor and concentration.
Then Finn took a nap. After he woke up we went to the Post Office. When we pulled into the parking lot Finn told me "mail." He is really catching on to being a paralegal. Then we went to Kroger to get drinks for daddy. By the time we got home it was almost time for Gran and Pa to stop by. Michael and I went to see an early movie (The Adjustment Bureau) so Gran and Pa sat with Finn for a little while. After the movie I rocked Finn to sleep.

Around 12:00 we went to Danny's to get Finn's haircut. It was so awful - I stayed stress out the rest of the day. He screamed/cried the entire time. He seemed to be scared to death. Then to make matters worse he had to go to the doctor's office to get shots for his 18 month well baby check-up.

When we got home Finn went outside to play with Dad. It was at this time that Finn discovered the hose pipe.
The water was absolutely freezing! Every time it would touch him he would gasp just a little. Nevertheless he ended up soaking himself. He even managed to spray us a few times. Before putting the hose pipe away Finn decided to have a drink. I would spray the nozzle for just a few seconds and then he would grab it and shove it in his mouth. To each his own.
Finn also made great strides towards potty training. Without prompting, he got a diaper, grabbed his wipes, laid on the floor and said "diaper change."
By the way, Finn is 18 months today!
