Yesterday Steve and I took our little adventurer to the Pittsburgh Children's Museum. He (and we) had such a great time! He doesn't get to spend much (okay, any) time with other kids, especially babies around his own age, so it was a great opportunity for him to socialize. And man, did he ever. We had him on a see saw-like exhibit for about 10 seconds before a little guy of about 2 years old came running over to play. And after his mum helped him go back and forth gently for a minute or two, a little girl came over and played on the seesaw with Finn too. Then they both played on the light peg table for a bit before the girl decided to high tail it out of there. Eventually after some more exploring we all settled into the baby play area where Finn was quite the hit with the ladies. Hehehe. He made two new girl friends, Chloe and Julia, both of them born within a week or two of him. It was really neat to see how three babies all born around the same time can develop so differently. For instance, Chloe had a bunch of teeth and says a few words (and actually knows what she's saying), but isn't really mobile yet, where as Finn has 0 teeth, says tons of nonsensical words, and is crawling all over the place, and the Julia also had tons of little teethe, didn't say much and was the most mobile 8.5 month old I've ever seen. She was tearing across the play area, pulling up on benches, cruising from one thing to another. It was crazy. I guess we have that to look forward to very soon.
