Our Newest Addition…

new baby 2

I am a pretty proud Momma today to be able to introduce you to the newest addition to our family. She entered the world at lightening speed and has captured our hearts just as quick. As I like to think of her, Finley James is our little powerhouse peanut. Weighing in at 9lbs 8oz, but still looking oh so tiny. Finley was a name Kev and I decided on together from the very beginning. We never had another name picked for her, she was always Finley to us. James is a family name and also a name I’ve wanted to use for a girl since I was little. I guess we really like gender neutral, Gaelic names in our household.

I just want to say a big, HUGE thank you to everyone for the kind words, tweets, emails, etc… we are truly blessed by all your kindness and support. I am so excited to share this new journey we are about to take as a family of 4. Our hearts are exploding with love and we couldn’t be happier!
xoxo

p.s. she has dark hair!!!! I was hoping for a little mini me since Kev’s genes won the first round…

  10. Oh my goodness! Congratulations Jen, Kev & Rowan… Finley is just beautiful. Don’t even get me started on her name, if its possible for something to match and just sound right with Rowan then Finley is most certainly it… Wishing you all the best for the magical time ahead you will have as a family of four xx

  11. She’s gorgeous! I love the name. My daughter was going to be Mila James, but we made the mistake of telling our older daughter and she told everyone. So we switched to Mila Adela. I’m still hoping to slip James into another name in the future, but I LOVE it for a girl.

  12. OMG she is so precious! I want to snuggle her! CONGRATULATIONS!

    She is one of the most beautiful babies I’ve ever seen!! CONGRATS!!! I’m due with my first in May and these pics make me 100x more impatient to meet my little one. :)

  20. Adorable, my four month old daughters name is Finley Kate.

  21. Those are the sweetest pictures. Love the name too!

  22. My daughter’s name is Isabelle James! But we call her Belle. Obviously James for a girl is simply amazing! It’s also a family name on both sides for us.

  23. So much LIKE! and glad you’ve gotten your mini-me. I’m sure Finley and Rowan are going to have grand adventures together.

  24. Just beautiful.

    Yay! Congrats to you, Kevin and Rowan – I’ve been looking for the updates of when she would arrive. So cool! Can’t wait to hear how the home birth went and how you’re adjusting to have two little ones – you and Kevin are fantastic parents and I’m sure it will be a great transition.

  39. Many congratulations to you and your family!

    It was fun reading your lovely blog and seeing you count down! Hope to see you have many more amazing adventures with her!

  40. such a little cutie! congratulations!

  41. She’s absolutely beautiful! Congratulations!!

  42. Congrats! I love that both of your daughters have gender neutral names. I’m an Alexandra but I love being an Alex. It’s cool growing up as a girl who has a “boyish” name =D This is such an exciting time. Enjoy every minute of the girls getting to know each other. It’s so precious.

  43. She’s beautiful! I love the names you picked out. I was the same way with names for my son. Once we knew he was going to be a boy, there was no question about the name. We only had the one in mind up until he was born and stuck with it. Congrats to you and your family! What an exciting time!
