Milestones

I've been trying to upload photos and videos for days now and keep getting error messages. Why must the internet be so finicky? Oh, finicky finicky internet.

I need to note the milestones happening at our house right now. Fintan is potty training. He's doing extremely well and I'm so proud of him. He gets a dumdum sucker every time he pee pees on the potty. He's gotten a lot of dumdum suckers. He gets a small measuring cup with chocolate chips in it when he poo poos on the potty. He hasn't gotten very many chocolate chips. (As a side note to my future self when potty training Coen: remember to remove all rugs from the room BEFORE you start, woman!)

Coen is really close to crawling, and, following his usual procedure for milestones, he accomplished his latest major one when I wasn't around to see it. I went to pick him up out of his crib in his darkened bedroom and poked him right in the eye because his eye was a lot higher than it should have been. He was sitting up!

I have a bunch of photos and videos to load as soon as my internet stops acting so finicky, (I could say that word all day, finicky finicky fin-ick-y). But here's one that managed to load before the darned thing "timed out".

Coen likes to stop jumping to tilt his head back every now and then and contemplate the ceiling. Here is what happened when mommy appeared overhead with a camera to interrupt his contemplations:




Holy cuteness.

The gummy smiles are the best. And in the jumperoo no less.

oh that gummy smile of adoration. Nothing better. Not even clean, dry rugs.

So adorable!!!!
Way to go on the potty training! Zoey only got ONE chocolate chip for using the potty (she's been trained for a while now so we've stopped that), what a lucky little boy Fintan is!!!
It seems like yesterday that you just had Coen.

I sometimes have similar problems on the other end of the process...downloading the pictures to my computer. Sometimes I can just do a "save as" and there it is. Other times I have to go through all kinds of gyrations with various programs to get a photo to work. I have no clue why that is. So please keep working at it Alina, and I will too. I love the pictures. Dad
