Finley // Week 23

Finley, I made a note from December 21 that after you took your bottle you just laid back in my arms and started talking. I remember it so clearly like it was yesterday. It was one of the sweetest moments of us just talking together and what made it even sweeter was you patting and holding my face with both hands. I love to hear your coos and babbles and as you begin to talk I'm certainly going to miss those sweet sounds. And you try SO hard to get words out. Sometimes you just get going and don't stop!

It was your FIRST CHRISTMAS and you turned 5 months old! Growing so healthy and we are so thankful!

Finley you straight up showed me here how you felt about all the picture taking! Haha! 

You love your breakfast time but you do not like your plastic bibs. Mommy didn't even bother with them this morning obviously..

You have started to hang out on our bed some and you love to be sitting up now. If you are laying on your back you constantly try and pull yourself up.

 Christmas Eve we went to Mimi and Big Pop's for their Christmas..  you did so good but you were so ready to get home by the time it was over.

You've been such a good girl Santa came to see you! You were pretty happy about it and in such a happy mood Christmas Day.

Everyone came over after me, you, and your Daddy had some family time...
you even got in a nap with Grandma Kathy.

You were so tickled to be going to your Pa!

This face just cracks me up!

And you were so excited to get your very first fishing pole!

It was SO warm the day after Christmas that we had brunch on the porch. You still love being outside.

That night we had Hopper Christmas at Aunt Tracie's.. you still loved tearing into all the wrapping and tissue paper!

Have to take the opportunity when I can to get pictures with you since Mommy is always the one behind the camera.. Love this one of us!

This was one of the last few times you napped in your swing/bassinet! 
Love to see you smiling even in your sleep.

You've started laying your head down on your Daddy's chest and snuggle in his neck too. He loves his cuddles with you.

You got so many outfits we had lots of photo shoots.. well we tried. 

I loved being off work for such a long period of time and rocking you.

You love love your bumbo seat! I'm so thankful Megan got you this seat because it takes up no room at all. It's perfect for you to sit up in since you are ALL about seeing everything and what's going on!

As you can see by your attire, the warm weather continued! You are getting to be such a big girl! Time sure has flown so fast. 
Can't believe you are standing here (you've got some pretty strong legs while we are on the subject).

Finley // Week 22

Finley, this week was super busy for Mommy at work and getting all the Christmas shopping done and making sure all the presents were just so that I really didn't write down a whole lot of notes. I'm so sad about this because my Mommy brain is taking over and not allowing me to remember any milestones you may have had for this week. As you can see from your pictures it seemed you were one happy, happy, happy baby! Which you are most of the time and THAT makes ME happy, happy, happy. You did spend A LOT of time with your Daddy and Gamma with me working more (my clients kept me busy wanting to be all beautified before Christmas). I missed you SO much on those busy work days and could NOT WAIT to get home to you.

So here is this week in pictures and more of 


Ok so I do remember you getting better with your solids! And I did find out very quickly that you do not like the plastic bibs. Goodness you would fuss when those were on you.

You are still loving your feet!

Happy Happy baby! I know I've already said it but I love your smiles!

I've still caught you sucking your thumb still at times.

And we had SEVERAL photo shoots because I wanted to get all your outfits. I think your Daddy doesn't like me taking your picture so much but we just have so much fun! I have always loved having pictures and I love looking at old pictures too (like from when your Grandmother Kathy was younger) It's so much fun to look back!

There was some CRAZY warm weather for December.. like up in the 70's. I'm not going to lie it was sort of nice and I enjoyed it!

La La (amber) let us borrow the girls tree for your nursery..
I LOVE this picture!

I only had a couple days to finish shopping and one afternoon we scooped up Gigi and headed to Athens to try and finish. You were SO good and Gigi was such a great help.

Later on when we got back home you worked on your heel stretches! Ha! Future cheerleader?

Happy morning baby! You are growing so fast little girl.

On December 20th, we had Christmas at Mama Jane's.. (There will be a separate post for all our Christmas') 
You had SO much fun tearing into that paper and it was so much fun with all of us watching you. I really think that's all everyone wanted to do.

You and Knox were having a good ol' time here after all the gift opening.

And look who made it home! You were so excited to see your Uncle Ko Ko!

You got your first cabbage patch dolls!

You woke up a happy baby the next morning! We made breakfast together. 

Baby's First Christmas!

Mara loves you so much she wanted to be in the picture too! You were loving watching her walk around before she finally came and laid down beside you.

Love this picture of you and your Daddy! Your first trip to see Santa! We went to the Christmas Cottage at Galilee Church and to have been woken up from a heavy sleep you did great! (you had just fallen asleep after not napping all day and it was only for about 20 minutes)

I really thought that you would've pulled Santa's beard because you had been doing that lately but you didn't. I love how your pictures turned out!

Get ready for Christmas pictures! It was such a great first Christmas with you Finley!
We love you!
