Finnian's First Christmas

Finn was raring to go at 5:00 a.m., the little bugger. I guess he was excited, knowing that there were going to be lots of new toys from Santa! Of course, by 8:00 a.m., right in the midst of gift opening, Finn was coming unglued from needing a nap.



Anyway, I think he enjoyed the festivities . . . well, really I don't think he cared. Noise, chaos, mess? It was all just another day to him.




Santa brought him this cool playmat. It looked cool in the catalogue, anyway. The tummy thing spins around and is supposed to encourage arm extension (which is one of the things Finn's PT wants him to work on) as well as head/neck/trunk strength and control. Finn wasn't so hip on it though :/ He also got a new Laugh & Learn Jumperoo, but we haven't put it together yet.


Ho. Ho. Ho.

SERIOUSLY...5am? With my youngest brother 13...we slept in late ;) Glad you all had a great Christmas. Finn will get the control device eventually and it will be in his time too. Have a wonderful day after :)

It's a bird, it's a plane...No, It's Super Finn! He looks so cute on his new toy from Santa.

I've never seen a play mat like that. Interesting! I had a hard time getting my Bean on her tummy in any circumstance. It looks like a great Christmas.

Aw, so cute! I considered getting that mat for M at one point but never followed through with us moving right around the time that it would have been most useful for her. I hope Finn enjoys it!

I posted but it got lost in space. :-(

What a bountiful Christmas. My favorite picture is the one of you, Finn, & the wrapping paper.

That playmat makes it look like Finn is playing that old game of "airplane" except all by himself. So cute.

Wow, that is a cool mat. I love the photograph of all the kiddos in a row. Merry Christmas to Sir Finnian and his beautiful family!
