four months!

Finn turned four months, last week. : ) I'm not doing very good at this "blogging four times a week" stuff, huh? Finn has his four month check on Monday, so I'll update you on his weight (chunky!) then. For now, some photos!

Um, Oli, I don't think that's what those are for...
giving little bro a ride
attempting to get a photo of the two of them together!
Oliver likes to ride his motorcycle to the park!
happy baby! (oliver also likes to play in the exersaucer!)
hanging out at the PC Festival
Oliver loved the train ride!
Finn zonked out while on my back.
And, to the right, you'll see a link to my new blog, as I am officially becoming a certified doula!

our busy week...

giving hugs while waiting for the 4th of July parade to start...
hanging out at great-grandpa and -grandma's house before the parade...
had to have a good view of the parade!
splashing in puddles after a big rain...
trip to the zoo...
Oliver fed the goats...
and I learned how to back wrap! Finn loved it - he dozed while I made dinner!

yep, that's me. i have two very cute, very busy excuses for rarely posting though!
i'm going to make it my goal to post at least four times a week now.
that doesn't mean you'll get four good posts a week, though. most likely it'll be four posts that took me five minutes to write.
this morning we had a good time at our Holistic Families (or, "hippy mom", as ian likes to call it) group, and while Oliver covered himself in sand i got to talk to other mamas about education and what they are choosing for their children. i think we will start looking into the local montessori schools, and see if one might work for us in a couple years. (and no, it's not too early - these schools are so popular, parents get their kids on waiting lists as early as 6 months old!)
Oliver is in the middle of a language EXPLOSION! he's saying new words each day (sometimes each hour, it seems!), and it's so fun. not only is he learning new words, but he's saying his 'old' words better and is really starting to enunciate correctly.
Finn is working on rolling! with a tiny bit of help from us, he's rolled a few times the last couple days. he is starting to reach out for toys/faces and brings everything straight to his mouth, of course. he just loves watching oliver, and Oli of course loves the attention. i often catch oli making funny faces at Finn in the backseat and laughing when Finn smiles at him.
