A Finn and Cormac Update

I think that as far as Finn's concerned, Cormac's always been here. He works Cormac into all of his stories. He takes pride in every tiny baby achievement. (I think I hear my own voice echoed in some of his exultations--"Mama, will you LOOK at CORMAC? He's SMILING! Aren't you baby? AREN'T YOU SMILING? What a smart BABY!")

It's adorable to see these two together. Cormac fixes his huge eyes on Finn and already seems to think he's the coolest. Finn takes a big brother role, even bringing him his most special blanket, "Allen" (don't ask) when Cormac starts crying. And he says things like, "When I'm a grown-up and Cormac's a kid, I'll make him dinner. I'll give him kiwi because it's delicious and I'll be able to cut it with a knife because I'll be a grown-up."

Cormac is starting to look huge to me. He's already over 12 lbs. and eats CONSTANTLY. (Finn was an awesome eater, too. I don't think you have a choice if you're Shawn and my kid.) He still wants to be held all the time, which is a huge challenge. First of all, I have to go back to work soon. Second, it's exhausting. Third, he yells and yells at you if you try to put him down. Wish us luck while we sort this one out.
