Finn-Diego is 2

Our little boy has just turned 2 on Wednesday October 29th. We can hardly believe it. Here is Finn’s latest and greatest! Finn is the King of the house for sure. His favorite hobbies include dancing (including a sweet break-dancing move), singing, watching movies, tub-time, running down hills, throwing rocks, pointing at pumpkins, just regular boy stuff. His attention span is about 20 seconds max. His favorite naughty things are not eating, he has started to hit (a habit we believe was picked up during church at nursery), hitting his mom and aiming for the face, crayons on the wall, saying “stop” when we try to make him be nice, mini temper tantrums, wrinkling his eyebrow when he doesn’t get his way, screaming bloody murder when we try to brush his teeth, badness at church, etc… It is hard to imagine life without him. He is such a fun little squirt and he definitely keeps things lively around here. He is a runt- genetics we think. He doesn’t eat much but we think he is getting enough- he is still making poops in his diaper every single day. He has learned to shake his shoulders when we say “shimmy”. His favorite toy is a wooden pumpkin that is a yard decoration that we bought from a craft store. He likes to hit the walls with it. He loves to listen to the “High School Musical Soundtrack” when he is in the car. He loves going for little hikes around Ogden. His animal noises are tough to beat- especially his tongue flap for the giraffe and grunting for the rhinos. He loves the zoo. He thinks belly buttons are funny to touch. His fake laugh is hilarious. He puts his shoes on by balancing with his arms and head on the floor. If he had his pick, he would wear his snowman pajamas every night. He is our pride and joy and it is crazy how one little person can change your life. He has been a major pain at times, but we wouldn’t change him for the world. We love you Finn!

Those are a bunch of great pictures! You have one great boy there.

You need to be careful what the kids pick up in nursery, though. The path to gang violence starts early, once they figure out they outnumber the adults...
(That's probably just jealousy on my part, since Elizabeth isn't old enough for nursery yet)

He is adorable!! Funny to hear about where Finn learned to hit. Mira Catherine's been improving her swing, lately. I'm trying to nip that in the bud, but once she's picked it up, it's tricky. She'll also tell a complete stranger in the store in line behind us, "NO! Move." Can you belive that? It's so embarrassing. I just hope they can't understand her. Twit.

Happy Birthday to the Mighty Finnster! You are such a cutey! Thanks for posting all of the adorable pictures. Our oldest son learned his first swear word at a church ball game! And boy did he loved saying it to get a reaction out of us. We were always afraid he would repeat it in the nursery and corrupt the other little kids.

Jesse, You guys have an adorable little squirt. I love his big dark eyes. It's crazy when they have birthdays and you wonder where the time has gone. Our munchkin turned 1 this week...Holy cow!! I can't wait to hear what Finn has been up to by the time he's 3. I swear to you the terrible two's are just a prep period for when they're three! Have Fun!
