Dearest Family and Friends,
Hello! It's been a little while but we are back! With so much to tell...
Finley had a wonderful Christmas, he definitely got into the spirit, ripping paper and exploring his new toys. He had a wonderful time with his two cousins Tristan and Hendrix and it was so nice to be together as a family. He received a wooden music set, a jack in the box and his own baby phone - so he stops trying to eat mine! Over Christmas we had lots of fun sailing in Levi's new catamaran, each taking turns with Levi touring us around the bay. There was lots of good food of course and our annual gratitude and resolutions chat was beautiful.
Our little boy now has 8 teeth - all the better to bite mummy and daddy with. He loves use them to bite into anything and everything and most of his toys have big teeth marks! He is right into his food too, basically eating what we do now, though he definitely has his favourites with blueberries at the top of the list.
The big new is Finley is crawling, sort of.... he manages to get around the whole house, at fast speeds using a move between a commando crawl and the worm. Levi calls it crawling both knees at a time. It's very cute and funny and has marked his entry into the toddler stage. He is very buy exploring his world, I've decided to give up on trying to stop him eating dirt and leaves - it's an impossible task. He is loving music, he plays his tambourine like a pro and is clapping and making lots of noise.
Finley has also grown ALOT in the past two months. He was underweight and I was concerned so that with a number of other factors led us to switching over to formula. Since then he has put on 2 kg's in two months! In the process we lost our baby but he has emerged a very active, happy little man.
Well, he is a week off 10 months - unbelievable for us really. It has been 10 amazing months that we wouldn't change for the world.
Lots of love,
