Finn is now 9 months old. Crazy, right? Lately I've been trying to give him more and more food from what we're eating. It's hard to know what he can/can't handle when he still has only the two bottom teeth, but he does quite well with bananas, peas, and McDonald's french fries. The thing is, feeding himself has become quite the thing to do, and so meals go a lot more like this now:
What happens now is Finn will happily eat his baby food, spoonful after spoonful, when all of a sudden, and for no apparent reason, he starts flailing his arms about, banging on his tray, until I give him food he can feed himself. And he's quite persistent about it too. He's also started the "fake cry" move, which reminds me so much of Deacon when he does it. So, meals are so much more "fun" now.
Also fun? Watching my boys watch The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I especially love watching Deacon (and sometimes Zeke, as you'll see in this next video) sing/dance to The Hot Dog Dance at the end of each episode.
OH! Another thing that's fun? The sun made it over the lower part of the mountain today! There was sun, COMING IN MY WINDOWS, for about an hour today. It was wonderful. It's funny, I didn't realize just how much I was missing the sun until I got so excited about being able to see it again from my house. Good times all around.
