here we go

We knew it was only a matter of time before Finley began falling, crashing, and banging her way through life. We've done what we can to protect her from harms way-I've cushioned her play area with about 30 blankets! Now that she's sitting up unassisted she's teetered back and forth causing her mother to hold her breath. Last night the inevitable happened and she fell sideways banging her face/head on one of her favorite (hard-of course) toys. She started screaming immediately, and surprisingly I was somewhat unfazed by her first injury. Her Papa however, was shaken up by the incident. He declared, "I'm not okay with this"-I think he was referring to her new mobility, which undoubtedly means many boo boos and tears in the future. I was okay this time, but will I be okay when there is blood, cuts, bumps and bruises?? My guess is no.
Moments after the fall, she had already forgiven her toy for hurting her.


Other news: Finley woke up 9 times ( i counted) last night between 9-8! My guess is that those dreaded top teeth are on their way. This should make the biting mommy game even more exciting!

It's nights like this that make me SOOOOO thankful that I don't have to get up and go to work.

hockey game

This weekend we went to a hockey game with our friends Lindsey and Jeremy. We've only been out without Finley a few times so we really enjoyed the adult time. Lindsey and I somehow managed to talk about stuff other than the babies and Brian enjoyed acting crazy as usual. How does he become best friends with people where ever we go?

Travis and Jaime's Wedding

This weekend my dear friend Jaime married Travis at the Januik Winery. I can't think of any other way to describe the winery than "cool". We had so much fun mingling, eating, and toasting that we didn't even get around to dancing! Check out the album for more pics from the night...

rolling cont...

I thought that this whole rolling over thing was a one-time deal. I was wrong. She's rolled over at least 20 times today. Interestingly, she gets fussy when she ends up on her stomach. I wonder why she even rolls over in the first place...I guess she's just proud of her new skill!

I was able to catch Finley rolling over on video. Unfortunately, I moved right as she did.

a big day for finley

This morning Finley rolled over for the first time. She defied the popular trend and rolled from back to stomach first. I was so proud. I cheered and kissed her and ran around the house in search of my camera.
