Finn's Bookshelf

We had a family day yesterday, and while part of it was spent at Finn's monthly check up, we crammed in lots of other good stuff, too.  Like a walk around Lake Balboa and breakfast with Uncle Rene, and dinner with a dear friend and her baby! And we spent a few hours in between stalking finds for our etsy shop at a bunch of Goodwills and thrift shops. Among my treasures found were a stack of kids books in very good shape, which I had to snatch right up - filling up a bookshelf for Finn has been one of my passions since we were barely even pregnant! For a baby who can't even read yet, he has a lovely selection of books in a variety of reading levels. Because of my passion for fairy tales, he has compendiums of stories from almost every continent. Plus copies of adventurous tales like Treasure Island and of course, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

It was a pleasure to add The Secret Garden - one of my very favorite books as a child - to his shelf, and Racso and the Rats of NIMH, which I have not read but am EXTREMELY eager to do so! And of course, the Star Wars book was Andrew's choice ;)

Presented, For Your Consideration

So we haven't really blogged much, mostly bemuse we are the kind of people who would rather be livin' life than writing about it. But now that Finn has arrived, we think this may the best way to keep all the family members and friends in the know about Finn and our adventures as a family, without going all "STFU Parents" on our Facebooks. Keep watching this space for updates, and until then, here's a picture of what we made!
