first pair of shoes

Yesterday my mom, Finn, and I all traveled to Nordstroms for their fabulous Anniversary sale. Grandma bought Finn his first pair of walking shoes for this fall. (Don't worry, he's not walking yet.) Evidently it is a really big deal to get your first pair of shoes at Nordstroms. They make a big to-do with taking a picture and getting a balloon (we declined the balloon). It was really fun though to take Finn in to get his foot measured and try on different styles. Luckily, due to the sale, we were able to get an adorable pair of one of my favorite brand of kids shoes - See Kai Run. (Thank you Lisa for introducing me to them!) Here's a picture of what Finn will be sportin' this fall! One shoe on ... one shoe off...
Thanks Grandma Jem!

Happy 6 Month Birthday Finn!

6 months brings so may fun adventures for Mommy and Daddy. He's babbling so much - saying things like MaMaMaMaMa and Dadadadada and Yayayayaya (his favorite). He's sitting up pretty much on his own and eating lots of vegetables. We are still (and may always be) working on getting Finn to sleep through the night but his many smiles and happy disposition always seem to make up for it. We love this little boy so much and are so amazed at the past 6 months and how quickly he has changed. Happy Birthday Finn! Playing with ALL of my toys at once.

My new favorite toy - the Johnny Jump-Up at Grandma Cherry and Grandpa Joe's house.

Chelan - Part 1

Here's a few fun snapshots of our week in Chelan.  More to follow soon!

Playing in the pool with Grandpa - not quite sure I like it yet.

I'm so tired!  All I do is play and play!

My new inflatable starfish.  Not too sure about this either.  ;)
