These photos are all from last week/weekend, which was another "5 straight days without being able to go outside" kind of week. On Friday, it snowed/iced, which luckily meant that Jeff and Finn could go gallivanting in it on Saturday morning.
Here's Finn in the middle of his new favorite pastime. My mom sent him a bunch of books on CD. I didn't think he'd go for it initially, but I hooked him by looking at our copy of "The Cat in the Hat" while Kelsey Grammar read it. The one he REALLY loves, however, is "Frances"--this is apparently a classic series about a little bear named Frances from decades ago. I played "Bedtime for Frances" for Finn, in which Frances thinks of all kinds of reasons not to go to bed, and he was enthralled. ENTHRALLED. We've listened to it about 100 times in a week. He can recite the whole thing. To my friends with small children, I highly recommend audio books as a TV alternative!
Eamonn loves a good half-eaten apple. Still no teeth!
It was frigid last week, so Finn naturally wanted to be naked most of the time.
Eamonn took a late nap one day and so he was still awake for the tail end of Finn's nighttime routine. He cannot wait to take a big boy bath (and no, the pacifier is not usually part of bath time. just go with it)
Jeff made Finn a sled and then our neighbor let us borrow theirs.
Jeff has a special gift for noises--airplane noises, animal noises, you name it. He's talented.

Finn and I bake (excuse the hat hair please)
Eamonn's favorite thing to "eat?" A piece of kale, which he happily sucks on until I get nervous about him choking on it.
Eamonn and I headed off for some frozen yogurt with Sarah and Annabel in Durham.
And...the potential redheaded Williams men.
