Happy Friday! My boy is 10 weeks old today!
This might be my favorite photo of him yet. Look at that lip!
I thought I’d mark this milestone by sharing some of my favorite moments from the last week.
Life with Finn at 10 Weeks
Sunday morning outside time with his fur sisters. I’m cracking up over Finn’s grin in this picture while the girls look so serious. Speaking of Finn grinning, he seems to really enjoy having toys right in his line of sight now and is much more entertained by his bouncy seat and activity gyms now.
Long walks in the neighborhood. When we are in Charlotte we walk at least an hour a day around the neighborhood. Walks are typically in the evenings and then we come home and do bath time and feeding routine. Sometimes we walk in the mornings if it’s cool enough. This was a four-mile morning stroll!
Gently used clothing shopping at Kid to Kid. I know that Finn could care less but I was a little tired of seeing him in the same PJs and outfits for the three-month size. I wanted to order some super cute baby boy clothes online but……budget. I just couldn’t justify the cost for something he’d wear for a few weeks. I decided to check a kid’s consignment store, Kid to Kid. I got about eight pieces for $20 and it was all super gently used. Some of the items even had original tags still on them.
These shark PJs were one of my favorite finds. I can’t even take it.
Another visit to Florida. We have our travel groove down and Finn was great on the flight down to Florida. (You can read my infant travel tips in this post.) He’s started loving to hold on to his Wubanubs and sometimes the actual paci isn’t what makes it into his mouth. Whatever works!
Side note: check out his eyes here. They were blue when he was born but there is a big fleck of brown in his right eye now and I feel like his iris is looking hazel-ish. I think his eyes are going to change to brown. Did your baby’s eyes change color? If so, when?
Finn’s first dip in the ocean. My mom and I went to the beach yesterday and we dipped Finn’s feet in the water for the first time. (It was like 2 seconds!) WAS.NOT.A.FAN.
He doesn’t like being cold so I’m blaming it on that. He’s also still really little. We will 100% turn him into a beach baby in due time. 🙂
For now, this is how Finn prefers to spend his beach days.
Or chilling in mommy’s lap in the shade.
Watching TV. I was hanging out with my family and watching The Food Network Star and holding Finn after feeding him. I looked down at him and saw that he was totally entranced by the TV. Uh oh! I guess that starts young! I can’t blame him for wanting to watch this show…Manny is hysterical!
Walks in the Ergo. Thank god for the Ergo. When Finn is really worked up it’s one of the only things that will effectively calm him down. We were out walking with the Ergo at midnight a couple of nights ago and then after dinner last night. I don’t know if it’s the full moon or a leap or what (gas was also involved) but Finn had a rough 24 hours. Here’s hoping today is a little better.
The fussy times are hard but still among favorite moments of being a mom. I love how much this little guy is teaching me about priorities, patience, surrender and love. He’s pretty amazing and I’m grateful for every single second of the last 10 weeks with him.
