Micronaxx The adventures of Finn & Henry

The Pearly Whites Emerge!

The time has come! Our man Henry got his braces off after 15 months. He was a complete orthodontic champ for the entire duration of brace-wearing. He was always on top of wearing the required rubber bands, and he never complained about tooth or mouth pain - kind of miraculous for our little grump! He was pretty nervous about how painful it might be to get them removed, and also anticipating how weird it would feel to not have them on his teeth anymore!

Happily the removal was no big deal, and he is getting used to having more room in his mouth and beautifully-aligned pearly whites. To celebrate the braces' removal, we gave Henry two more of his dad's old Lionel train cars - a flatbed and a crane car, so he was immediately off to the basement to add them to his rig!

Nack Friday (aka Sweatin’ With The Oldie)

The name of my gym, Cróga, means “Brave” in Irish, so it seemed appropriate that our Green Team dubbed itself “The Fighting Irish” for our month-long friendly competition with two other squads. For the grand finale on Friday, Margot & the lads came to cheer me in, with Finn providing some clutch water boy duties to his thirsty old man. Here’s a handful of pics from the festivities! ☘️💪

Democracy on the Move

We were honored to walk the walk—literally—behind our lads today in the March For Our Lives, hoping to bring some sanity to the debate over gun violence and control. When some high schoolers asked for help carrying their sign in this student-led movement, Hen stepped right up, then stepped to the front of the 10,000-strong march. We love our soon-to-be-voters! 💪🇺🇸

Finnster, Now & Then

To commemorate our big man’s tenth (!!) full orbit around the Sun, I compiled a little photo tour of him through the years:

Compare that to how grown up he looked this week reading the qualities of a good Scout at our recent pack meeting:

And just for completely random comparison, here he is cavorting with Grandpa Nack right after Hen was born (“Kinda steep!”):

Turning Ten

A decade, man… a decade of this dude, and I’m at a loss for words. It feels like some blow-out retrospective is in order, but rather than wait on that to come together, I can at least share some fun festivities from Finn’s little party.

Despite often telling us that “Being the center of attention is not really my jam,” the Finnster does really enjoy hanging out with a few pals. Therefore on his birthday we rounded up some of the “M Force” (M as in Minecraft, naturally :-)) for some pizza, Nerf battles, and ‘crafting. Here’s a little gallery from the occasion.
