Fridays with Finley {14th December 2012}

Dearest Family, 

As Christmas approaches the Catton household sure does get busy. Our tree is up and we are in the full swing of Christmas craft and baking. Finley loves the tree. It took his usually play spot on the carpet so he was skeptical at first but now he loves the lights and ornaments! It's beautiful introducing him to the joy of Christmas. We have had a busy few weeks in the lead up. Last week we attended Levi's marine industry Christmas party on a tall shop in Sydney Harbour which was a great night out and Courtney and I went to see Regina Spektor at the Opera House - just beautiful. Finley as always has been a little trouper through it all and has enjoyed some time with Grandma while we have been off enjoying ourselves. Thanks Grandma! 

Finley now has 6 teeth, with 4 coming through in the last few weeks. He is really starting to look different now, more and more like a little boy. We miss our tiny baby but get excited at all the new things he is doing. He has started to clap and wave which is just gorgeous. He isn't much of a mover yet, no crawling which I suppose I should be glad hasn't come too fast. I hear that life really changes once they get moving. 

I've attached some photos from our mothers group photo shoot - how cute hey! And pictures as promised from our Cairns trip. 

We hope you all get the chance to relax over the Christmas period and reflect on the reason for the season! 

Love to all,
