Dear Finley James 3/52


My Sweet Girl.
I can not express what a joy you are to our lives. We honestly call you “angel baby” because that is exactly what you are. I would have a hundred (well maybe 3) more babies if they were all going to be like you. I think you and Rowan are going to be the perfect match for each other. You each have such special personalities. I can’t wait to watch your’s grow and develop as you get bigger! You have been smiling a lot lately. I was always so unsure of what it would be like having a second. I wondered if all the little milestones would be as exciting to experience with the second? Well let me tell you… they most definitely are!! My heart feels like it is going to burst every time you smile. Your eyes light up, your mouth opens wide and you just look so happy. Love is an amazing thing. Just when you think your heart is full, it grows and you instantly can love another like you have loved them your whole life. Your dad, you and Rowan make my whole world go round.


You got weighed at my midwife appointment last week and you weighed 11.6 lbs! You are growing big little girl. You are sleeping great too. The last 4 nights you have slept from 7-9 hours straight and boy, oh boy it feels good. ha! We are taking our first trip this up coming week to Canada. I can’t wait to show you off to your Great Grandparents and Great Aunts and Uncles. We also took a mini trip this weekend to visit both your grandparents. It was a beautiful snowy weekend. Your Dad and I got to take you out for a fun adventure this afternoon in the snow. You seemed to really enjoy the fresh air. I get so excited thinking about all the adventures we get to take you girls on.
Love you to the moon and back,
Your Mama

  12. I love The Lion King pictures at the end. You’re showing her off to all of winter! Hehe.

  13. That last photo with her little red nose, adorable! Good on you all for getting out and enjoying the snow.

  14. awesome–snow!!! Little Levi saw the pictures and said “Christmas!” because he thinks snow must= Christmas. 🙂 So happy that #2 is such an angel…often (in my case,) the second one can be a shock after an easier first child. So glad that isn’t the case for you.
    And I hate to be a weirdo…but do I SPY bangs under that hat of yours!? 🙂 you know me–always obsessed with bangs. haha.
    xo aloha!

  15. So cute! Also, what are those boots? I have been looking all over for cute winter boots!

  16. Jen, these photos are seriously adorable! Those last two photos are cracking me up.

  17. Very sweet little girl! If Finley can teach my precious baby how to sleep 7-9 hours, I’d much appreciate it. Perhaps she could host an online course? 😉

  18. Jen, I’m a new follower here, and your baby girl is precious! Your note to her brought tears to me eyes; I can SO relate with what you said. We were blessed with our first baby girl, Kinley, just 4 days after Finley was born! Absolutely has been so much fun to watch her grow into this magnificent little person. Glad I stumbled upon your blog, I have been looking for someone who is just Kinley’s age! So, thank you.

  19. These pictures are so precious! You both look beautiful.

  20. I love that blanket! Please please share where you got it?
