SMOOCHIE FACE

AUCTION<=
Two of Finny's favorite things are fun and cuddling.  Come 9 o'clock, he passes out like the little kid that he is.  If you think I treat my little man like a human, you'd be right.  And this one will never grow up.  : D

(This is actually from a photo my son snapped as Finny peered over the back seat on the way to grandma & grandpa's.)
