Bumbo Love

Unfortunately - Finley is not some super advanced baby that is completely independent at 3 months. Instead, she requires us to feed her, bathe her, change her, hold her, etc. However, the invention of the Bumbo has made this so much easier! Finley sits in her Bumbo several times during the day. She helps me to pack my lunch, make coffee and fill up bottles for the day in the morning while sitting in the bumbo. She watches me enjoy my lucky charms and cup of coffee in the bumbo on the coffee table after the lunches are packed. In the evening she joins Paul and myself for dinner while sitting in the bumbo. We call this "The Hot Seat". She sits in the bumbo on the middle of the dining table directly under the lights. That way, we can have a nice family meal. She even holds our hands for grace :)

Next up - Finley and her bumbo hit the road - to Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving!

Spit Up and Smiles

Not much new to report on the home front. We're still getting into the routine of life now that I'm back to work. Finley is doing GREAT sleeping in her crib, although we're still not close to sleeping through the night.

She has become quite the pro at spitting up. When received 20+ burp cloths as gifts I thought there was no way we were ever going to use all of them. SURPRISE I use about 5 a day, so they are always in use!

Here is my favorite picture of Finley to date. She is loving smiles and will occasionally even smile for the camera.

Halloween 2010

We loaded up the car and headed to church for Trunk - or -Treat. It was INSANITY. We brought 500+ little plastic toys to give out, thinking we were well prepared. We ran out in 20 minutes. Thankfully the church had TONS of donated candy to keep our supply stocked. I would guess we gave out our toys + 20 bags of candy.

Everyone thought Finley was super cute as Winnie the Pooh.

I stayed warm as Tigger.

And Paul toughed out the cold as Christopher Robin.

I would like to say we got her all hopped up on Reeses' and Snickers but really, she just had a bottle. Either way - she enjoyed her night, and so did we.
