I just wanted to say thank you to all the people who helped us out at the beginning with Finn. We couldn't have done it without you. Seriously.

Mom - Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for coming all the way to Logan (multiple times) to help with Finn when he wasn't at his finest moments.

Megan - You were Finn's first visitor in the hospital! It was so nice of you to decorate our place with "it's a boy," decorations. Also, thanks for bringing Finn some premie clothes in the hospital so he didn't have to go home in just his diaper.

Grandma Jane - You helped us so much by getting Finn a ton of diapers. It was also nice of you to call and see how we were doing.

blogging buddies and friends who called - Having all of you give me words of encouragement when Finn wasn't doing too well was priceless. Blogging is really great because of this. It's nice to know that other people can empathize with you. Thanks Kelly, Marissa, Lisa, and Maggie for calling. Thanks to Rachel for the extra Prevacid (reflux medicine) you had that you gave to Finn.

Josh's Aunt Cats - You gave Finn a freezer full of breast milk when I found out I didn't make enough. He was able to have breast milk for 3 months! I have always been adamant about breast feeding my babies for at least a year, and when I found out that I wasn't fully able I was devastated. And people, yes, I tried everything, from seeing lactation specialists and my doctor, to herbal supplements and special teas. The last resort was to take a prescription medication. Didn't work. Apparently having a 4 lb baby that's premature doesn't bode well for having a bounteous milk supply. Maybe next time it will work out better.

Taking care of a baby is hard work. It's nice to know that there are people who are willing to help out. Thanks again everyone!

Here's a funny video of Finn doing the "River Dance." At least I think it's funny because you can hear me laughing hysterically while I'm filming. We were at my parent's house awhile ago and my mom started wiggling these pajamas. Finn proceeded to entertain us with this little jig.



hahaha! It really does look like river dancing steps! Maybe that profession is in his future? :) He is seriously so cute.

Wow that's so awesome and so funny. Maybe I need to wiggle things in front of Henry to get him to dance ha ha. Little Finn is such a good blend of each of you and so cute. That was hilarious, thanks for the video.

WOW! His neck is so strong for how young he is!

When we did that to Charlotte at that age she'd scream her little lungs out and her forehead would grind into the floor....

...granted, she had some weird neck muscle thing...

I gave him top score. When are you going to put him on stage with the River Dancers?
