Finn's skill with the variety of rolling toys in the home has shown that maybe one day he will be a great sportsman. Whether in cricket or baseball seems to be the continental-divide question at hand.
Things that roll include this caterpiller type fellow. He carries balls on his back in a very entertaining fashion. Finn also loves his motorized bulldozer. More on that in the weeks to come.
All young turtles have a need for a bathing pool. Mommy is happy to oblige. This was a test run for Halloween. Again more information soon.
One of our favorite photos of Finn to date. He is shown here decked out in some winter head gear...all ready to go and see his cousin Jeffrey's soccer match.
Once on the field the headgear (with matching extra ears) served him well as cousin Julia (of short hair fame) looked on.
Look out! Here comes a Mambo Tough Nut. Finn sporting the latest in Australian surf/baby fashions. Many of you will know of his dad's penchant for sporting the Mambo brand (apologies to Messers Hillfiger, Lauren and Gap) and hence the Finnster follows suit.
Oddly enough the adult Mambo range has come to suck, after the corporate takeover by Esprit (first against the wall when the French revolution comes). Ironic that a company so opposed to French Pacific foreign policy was gobbled up by Gauls...no?
Again, sporty Finn. This time showing his soccer skills on the backyard pitch.
As Finn likes his songs full of large animals (Old MacDonald is his favorite tune) Finn and his dad went in search of the real thing in the neighborhood one Saturday morning. We found this friendly horse who was very agreeable and Finn was interested until he heard a car in the distance. Cars are his true love and we can now state categorically that distant car sound trumps three feet away horse not making car sound.
Film fans will be interested to note that the thriller movie The Village was filmed about 300 yards behind that horse.
Finn and his cousin Jay have become best buddies of late, though Finn is more fascinated with Jay than anything else. Jay just keeps asking how long until Finn is five (Jay is five). Shown here is Jay once again instructing Finn not to mess with the spiky cactus.
Later that very same evening, Jay instructed Finn on the art of being a lead singer. See more of Finn and Jay here.
Finn's recording engineer classes are going well. He is up to channel 13 on the dusty recording console in the office. By the time we have a larger house with a room for all the studio gear, Finn can man the boards while his dad rocks out.
Over at the Blaxland grandparental units, Finn is introduced to the heirloom Lego box. Keen viewers will note another Mambo tee. This one was apparently first.
There really are not enough kids tees with skulls on them.
Lego Party! Finn fits right into the blond brigade: Tom, [Finn], Joe and Rory.
Arrrhhhgg. Finn sports his third Mambo tee, this time in a pirate theme.
Maybe the skull tee stats are not as bad as first thought. These shirts really are very detailed and cleverly put together. Ten points to Mambo (or is it Le Mámbo?).
The end of another busy week, little pirates need to take a nap. Good times.
