This sweet boy has definitely done things on his own time. He didn't get up on all fours until 11 months and didn't go up right until 18 months. Joe and i have had a few sleepless nights worrying and have helped him with a few sessions of physical therapy and now because he was a slow walker he is a slow talker. Something that is very normal for kids who don't walk until later. Once a month a speech therapist comes to pay Finley a visit. Since 18 months he went from about ten words to 80 words and counting. We are ever so proud of our boy. He is starting to talk up a storm. it has made our jobs easier and he is less frustrated.

Joe and I find ourselves reflecting on the last three years of constant babies, diapers, sleepless nights, bottles, and binkies etc. which is now beginning to wind down and come to end. We have a little girl and a toddler. It is quite odd to find ourselves here but we are going to relish in this new stage before starting all over again with a third babe.

Finley you are growing up and there is nothing I can do to stop it. My only option is to hang on tight and try to enjoy the ride.
