The adventures of little boy Finn

Empathy for big brother Gabe

Poor big brother Gabe had to get four vaccinations at his annual doctor’s visit today. I was glad to be just a spectator, but I was also watching the procedure with great trepidation. When the first needle went in, Gabe quietly winced, but I screamed bloody murder!

Pic o’ the Day: I went to the Dentist for the first time!

I went to the dentist for the first time today, & I was a very good boy! The dentist said that my exam was better than perfect! So apparently my diet of sticky carbohydrates & refusing to let anyone help me brush my teeth is working nicely! Behold the promise of Finny’s teeth to come!

3 feet 7 1/2 inches tall

Mama reports: As of this moment, Gabe is 4′ 7.5″ tall, & Finny is 3′ 7.5″. They are exactly one foot apart!

Brushing my teefies!

I handed Mama my Thomas the Tank Engine toothbrush & told her, “I brushed all my teefies, Mama!”

At about 6 1/2 months, I ate sweet potatoes for the first time, & I thought they were good!

I’m slowly recovering from my bad cold, and here’s what I had to say about it to my mama.

My cold got worse!

I went to the doctor today, and it turns out that I have an ear infection and need a nebulizer treatment for wheezing. I didn’t like it, but I feel much better.

I have a terrible cold!

I have a terrible cold, my first. I’m all snotty and snorfly and coughing like a little old man. And I’m only 4 months old!
