After the ordeal we went through to have Lochlann, never in our wildest dreams did we think we would ever be so blessed with a repeat performance, but we were - and his name is Finnegan! Our little guy turns 7 today! Lucky for you readers this won't take an hour to read, since most of my photos are jumbled up after what happened to the old computer, but I did find a few!
Everything was funny to him, he was a very happy guy :)
Finn makes us laugh, even when he's not trying!
Thanks for being a good sport about all the getups, pumpkin!
We thought we were geniuses when you were naughty and we put you in the "time-out" boots so you couldn't walk off... you even thought that was funny! I guess it was :)
Thank you for being "the one that eats his vegetables". Your creativity with Mr. Potato Head parts is legendary.
Also legendary: your sense of style...
Remember your first snowman? The one that was twice your height and you told mommy you made it "all yourself"? Well, it's awesome... too bad daddy and Loch didn't help you :), they would have had fun.
We were amazed with the ease and speed in which you embraced the "at the cabin" filth mentality, I hear there is an ice fishing shack reserved with your name on it already!
You love your brother fiercely, even if you won't admit it. Guess what? He loves you too even though he won't admit it, either.
You have a patience level no child should have to endure, waiting for daddy's deployments to end. We are so proud of you, and the best part of daddy's deployment is coming home to you and your brothers' happy faces.
As a blogger, I have to say thank you also for being so darn photogenic!
You are the best kind of garden helper, one that actually eats what you grow!
...but you are still weird for eating all that basil and parsley when we are working out there! It seriously looks like caterpillars attacked my plant after you spend 5 minutes with it.
p.s. I apologize for making you wear Crocs, that was before I realized how stupid they were :)
You dig the best holes. I know, I know, I'm supposed to bury those tomatoes deeply, right?!
You are an excellent student, you love your brother (mostly), love your family fiercely, you are kind, you love your dogs, you are creative, funny, and generally a fun guy to be around. I can't wait to see what the future holds for you!
Now you are 7 and you dress yourself a little better but you have no front teeth.
Thanks for taking us all for a ride on the Finnegan train, can't wait to see where we'll go next!
