Finley // 11 Months

Finley, you were 11 months on June 22nd and what an amazing 11 months its been!
I'm pretty sure when you are eating and in your rocker that your right toes are always curled and your left foot is down. Love the little things about you!

So in no particular order for this post.....

We've had some great snuggles.. and this morning must have been so rough.. ha!

You love to hold your paci and have it flipped up in the air or on your face..

We've been able to enjoy some of the outdoor air but now it's just getting too stinkin' hot .. This heat is ROUGH. You enjoy waving at the cars and we sing The Wheels on the Bus while we are swinging. When the chicks were out they would come greet us and you enjoy seeing them too... You've also wanted to explore a little more and even get down on the bottom step. Sometimes we would take a towel out and sit at the bottom of the steps and play with toys and just enjoy the fresh air!

Mommy and Daddy would hold you like this when you were a baby.. you were just a tad smaller then! 

Daddy caught us sleeping this particular morning! He said that you were still asleep when he walked into the living room but Kyli jumped up on the couch and woke you up. This was  GREAT nap!!

You and the Amigas just continue to get more and more used to each other! You are Kyli especially seem to be buddies.. probably more so because she likes to get on the couch with you.

Daddy has been traveling more with work (since June) so we send him pictures whenever we can!

Your sleep has been great this month! 

Mommy works on her squats too Fin Fin! Ha! You are still cruising everywhere and are just enjoying exploring all over the house. 

Mommy Daughter snuggles!!

Your faces just crack us up!

Sox has been hanging around you more and you are also going up to her more.. we just have to really be careful since her nails get the longest and are so thick. 

When you do fight sleep, I've caught you standing up like this in your crib. There have been times when I just knew you were going to fly backwards because you could hardly stand up you were so tired. It doesn't take you long tho to lay down and pass out for a couple of hours.

Since school is out, Gigi has been such a big help with you and has even spent the night with us a couple of nights. She said that you cracked up when she took this picture.

These are just precious moments when you hold our hand or fingers when you are going to sleep.

Such a sweet precious sleeping face.. 

You are still into giving LOTS of kisses... you kiss the puppies, your toys, me and your Daddy, family... you will even kiss the dishwasher when you are cruising around the kitchen!

You were such a big girl sitting in this chair! We had gone on a walk and you picked a pear off the pear tree. We had to throw it away tho because me and your Daddy were a little worried you were going to poke your eye out with the stem.

Having fun with Gigi!

We went to Brynn's birthday party and you had a blast on this water table, playing with the pebbles, and walking in the shallow end of the pool.

Your hair finds its way up sometimes.

I love you in your dresses but it's hard for you to crawl in them because your knees get caught up in them and you get so frustrated. We had gotten ready for church on Father's Day but you ended up falling asleep right before we left and you slept for 3 hours! 

You enjoy "organizing" this basket and it's so fun to watch you 'work'. I'd love to know what you are thinking when you get in the zone like this...

This is your new face you started making. Your Daddy left his phone on the ottoman and you found it and were just having a ball with it. You were taking care of all his calls that day.

"Hello? Yeah, this is Fin. I'll be handling all my Dad's calls today."

We've watched Sesame Street a couple times now and the singing has caught your attention quite a bit. You've shown a lot of interest in this and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Your Daddy LOVES to take naps and snuggle with you when he's home from working. And let me tell ya, y'all continue to take them serious around here. You've even gotten up, had your bottle and passed out again pretty quickly. You haven't done that in quite some time either!

Good morning Beautiful Blue eyes!! In the sun, you can see little flakes of green.

Sleepy baby! Your Daddy thought this was the cutest thing seeing you fall asleep like this..

We went 'junking' early one morning before it got TOO hot...

Loving that paci flipped up!

Finally got your shoes on you again and we walked outside for a little distraction. You still dislike them and you are starting to walk really good with us holding one hand.. we are just going to keep trying shoes for when you do walk on your own and want to be outside.

Mrs. Sherry let us borrow her pool one evening and you loved it! This was your first time in the pool and if you hadn't been so sleepy (you fell asleep just going 5 mins down the road) I think we could've stayed longer than we did and you really enjoy being in the water.

And, you celebrated your first Father's Day with your Daddy! He was so glad to be home and be with you!

Notes from Finley's journal::

// understands the concept of 'no' .. you have even started saying nonononono
// starting leaning more towards the couch from the ottoman trying to walk and standing more by yourself
// found loud voice especially when 'reading' your books.. your Gamma brought you a book "The Little Red Hen" and there are pages in there that fold down. You LOVE flipping the pages and 'reading' along with us. You will even bring us your book and get in our lap to read
// Mickey Mouse clubhouse catches your attention and when the hot dog dance comes on at the end, you alternate your feet picking them up quickly off the floor dancing
// you try to help take your clothes off and getting clothes on is a challenge. You have started stiffening your arms so its hard to get them thru the sleeves of your clothes
//when you are eating I can say "where's Kyli?".. and you look down at the floor (because this is where she is waiting for you to drop food or for you to feed her)
//You clap for if you're happy and you know it and one time you even did 'amen' and stuck your arm up in the air
//you are over us feeding you puree foods with the spoon and will turn your head and slap the spoon in protest. I've noticed when we hand you a solid food, you put it back on the tray and then pick it up again so you can 'do it yourself'. Miss independent
//you took a couple of steps towards Gigi on 6.25 and on 7.1 towards your Daddy. You had a hat in your hand and Coach said that you took two teeny tiny baby steps
//you started doing your scrunchy smiley face and you also 'blow kisses' .. although you just stick your arm straight out with an open hand and you want us to kiss your hand too
//you know where your toofies, nose, and hair are
//you know where to hold the phone
//when we are in the bath tub and you want to stand up, I will tell you to "sit on your bottom please" and you give that scrunchy grin, and just plop down in the water. Even when we have told you 'no' you have started giving us that grin and even at times giving me a kiss ... like you are trying to get away with not getting in trouble
//you also throw things in the floor and go "EH!!" .. you've been doing this for a couple of months but you REALLY have learned what you are doing and it has become a game for whoever to pick up what you threw down in the floor
