Finn update

Finn has been having lots of fun this summer. He really, really enjoys bike rides lately. He will walk out to the garage, try to put the bike helmet on his head, and climb into the trailer.

We have him sit on his potty every night, and he has used it a couple of times.

He enjoys smelling flowers (which is hard to capture on film, but very cute, trust us).

He is making the transition from two naps to one nap a day, which makes for "tired Finn" some days.

Yesterday was the Dragonboat Festival in Superior (annual fundraiser). Barr (Keely's employer) had a team that Mickey raced on. Finn was there to support the team, act like a clown (see picture 1) and stare down anyone who got in his way (see picture 2).

Let's see how the pros do it

We recently had a professional photographer take some shots of Finn and the proofs are ready to be viewed. For those who are interested, go to and click on "Online Proofing." Choose the Pearson proofs and enter "finn" (no quotes) as your password.

Here's a sample of the results:

100 Posts & a Milestone Reached!

Yes, it's true. This is the 100th post on the Babies Pearson blog. Crazy, I know.

It's almost as though Finn anticipated the implied importance of this post, and as such, chose today for his first successful attempt at peeing in his potty. We were surprised and ecstatic parents to be sure.

Here's a photo for you.

Gma & Gpa Pearson visit Duluth!

The grandparents Pearson came up to Duluth for a visit to Finn's new home. Here's some shots of the adventures we went on.

Here's Finn showing them how to walk along the lakewalk and not look like tourists.

On Wednesday afternoon, we took a ride on the North Shore Scenic Railroad up and down the shore.

Finn played at the toy train tables while waiting for the train,

and played with grandma in the traincar,

and then by the engine after the ride. What a fun time!
