10 months and going strong

Today, Finn Ricker Weaver is officially 10 months old.  I am not sure how much he weighs, but we would guess between 16 and 17 pounds.  And he is TALL!  He is like Jake was at this age, all arms and torso.  LONG and skinny!  And he is such a joy!  He smiles and giggles all the time.  We are so glad that he is doing so well, and we know we are blessed to have such a wonderful outcome!

Finn is siting up unassisted – has even made it from laying down to sitting up once, has 2 bottom teeth, just transferred over to his 9 month clothing this weekend, and as soon as we run out of size 2 diapers in the house we will break out the size 3’s.  I think he could stand to change over now, but I have to see those last 20 or so diapers not get used!  He can get up on his hands and knees, but doesn’t stay there long.  He has rocked back and forth a few times, so crawling is not too far off!  He can stand up when holding on to something, too.  He LOVES to laugh and laugh and laugh!  Just in the last day or so he has added that “ga” sound to his cooing, too.  He is really doing so well!  We don’t know how much he weighs exactly or how long he is, but based on his recent patterns, I would say he is about 16-17 pounds and at least 27” long.

This week we were presented with a precious gift for Finn, too.  A young lady named Payton is 11 years old and she and her cousins make quilts for sick kids in hospitals.  She saw the article about Finn in this summer’s OBI newsletter, and she chose to make his an OSU themed quilt.  The final product was delivered to us this week, and I snapped a picture of Finn enjoying it.

Here is the text of the letter Payton wrote to send with the quilt:

Dear Weaver Family,
I read about Finn's story in the OBI Pulse flyer. I decided that I wanted to make him a quilt.

My Memaw loves sewing and wanted to teach us grandkids how to quilt. It started as a one week a year during spring break and we called it Kuzin Kamp. Now it includes 20 of us all year long.

Last summer we decided to make blankets for sick children and most of them go to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa. I was told that Finn's room was OSU so I hope he likes his quilt.

We have a Kuzin Kamp facebook page if you want to send us a picture of Finn and his blanket.

11 yrs.

And I will leave you today with the infectious laugh of our 10 month old miracle.  God is GOOD!
