Bits of Fynn

This morning as I jumped into the shower I heard the bathroom door open. I peered around the shower curtain and found my three year old with a few toys, sitting on the bathroom floor.

How YOU doing mommy? {that’s his new thing, and he says it just like Joey on the show Friends… cracks me up every time!}

He sat, and played, and talked to himself for a minute as I shampooed and rinsed.

Can you sing me a song, Fynn?

So he sang. Loud and clear, the alphabet song. The whole way through.

After he belted out a resounding Z he ended with now I know I know I know, sing with me! Yay!

We always clap. And smile. Real honest to goodness proud as anything smiles. Because I am so proud of this little guy. It boggles my mind that he knows how to sing the alphabet song. Even more so, it blows my mind that he can spell his name.

And it warms my heart that he knows his Daddy’s name is Lucas Lastname, but when asked I am always Mommy Lastname.

He is full of surprises, and knowledge, and kindness. Everything and more than I expected a three year old to be. Tonight we read a story about two friends, two best friends. I asked him if he had a best friend. He told me “my sister Paige is my friend” and smiled. He gives hugs and big kisses. Headbutts that are meant as signs of affection. He is all boy, yet so soft around the edges.

We have quite a week coming up. Playdates galore, but also a test. A two hour food challenge that will determine the status of Fynn’s peanut allergy. He knows it has to be done. We’ve talked about it. He says he’ll be brave. There will be scratch tests and patience prodded. But I’m positive he will do wonderfully, no matter the outcome. If all else fails, he’ll sing and end with I know I know I know, sing with me and he should know, we will always sing with him. For him.

  1. Aww.. so sweet. Love the boy sweetness. GOOD LUCK with the allergy test. Hannah is deathly allergic to all nuts and eggs. I had hoped she would grow out of it but it’s not looking positive for her. I will keep my fingers crossed for you and Fynn!

  2. I hope all goes well with Fynn’s food challenge this week. What a brave little man he’s been about this. He — and you — will be in my thoughts. Please keep us posted!

  3. Good luck with the test – I have a nut allergic son (actually not peanuts, but tree nuts) – not at all fun but also manageable.
    Good luck.

  4. He sounds like such an adorable guy!! 🙂

  5. good luck. I love the all boy, soft around the edges. I’ve got some of that over here, too. 🙂

  6. I love the Joey “how YOU doin”. That is so cute!

    Finley just learned my first name, but he’s been calling my husband by his first name for a long time. I guess because he hears me say it all the time.

    How absolutely heart warming that Fynn said that Paige was his friend. Those are the moments that make me yearn for another baby.

    Best of luck with the food challenge this week! I’m hoping to have ours (for egg) sometime this spring.

  7. I want to meet that little guy one day!

    I’m thinking of you both this week, with the testing he has to go through!

    You’ll both be in my thoughts this week, especially the food allergy test. Hoping all goes smooth and you’re singing again this weekend!

  10. Wishing you the best of luck on the peanut challenge! I know how serious those nut allergies are–I’m sure you’ll be nervous. Big hugs to you both.
