That's right, I let him pee on the trees. Even if he says he doesn't need to go, I ask him, "Finn, do you want to pee on a tree?" And believe it or not all of a sudden he has to go. Correct me if I'm wrong. Don't most guys like to pee on things in the outdoors? Finn definitely does. He pees on trees, rocks, bugs, dirt and anything else in the great outdoors. We haven't been caught yet. I think I'd be kind of embarrassed if we were. But not to the extent that I would rather him pee in his pants. People let their dogs pee on everything. How is a toddler any different?
I got Finn a raincoat and boots before we moved because I knew it would be rainy a good proportion of the days here. He has so much fun jumping in the puddles! One of these days we'll have to make some tin-foil boats and sail them down the gutter.
Finn has started doing something that we think is pretty cute. He will get all of his cars, trains, planes, and busses, and line them up in strategic ways. It's interesting to me that as his little 2 year old self is developing, he's starting to organize things. He really likes things a certain way too, and will sometimes get stressed out if his plans aren't working out to his liking. He is also more interested in books now and will tear them all off of his book shelf to go through them.
