FJS is 8 months! Where in the world did the time go!?! I swear Jake’s 1st year went by like molasses compared to Finnley’s and I can guarantee he has something to do with it. Keeping up with 2 is a whole lot different than what it was managing one. All of you out there with 3+ kids…wow. I seriously don’t know how you do it. But good job!
Finnley has surprised us from the day she was born. She is our crazy, wonderful, SWEET and beautiful little wild woman! She is 100 mph, 100% of the time- unless she’s sleeping. She and her brother have that in common. They both don’t stop! I suppose it’s a small dose of my own personality.
From birth (June) to 6 months, Finn has been the sweetest most cherished baby on this earth! I look at her sweet face and think how she can possibly do anything wrong. She’s just a peach! She rarely cries and is always so peaceful and content. There never seems to be a problem unless she’s tired or hungry…easily fixable. She comes to Crossfit with me (and Jake too) 4-5 days a week and rarely says a peep! She’s just always so happy. She definitely LOVES to be held and cuddled, like most babies of course. I just have been in heaven with every moment spent with my sweet baby girl. It’s has absolutely been just the craziest most beautiful blessing to have the two babies that we have. My heart is SO full of joy and happiness.
So, ever since Finnley turned 6 months, she has been on the GO! She literally started full blown crawling on her 6 month 1/2 birthday. Both Matt and I looked at each other and said, “Isn’t this early for her to be doing this?” We were in trouble. Ever since that day, she’s only gotten better. Faster. Stronger. Now she’s standing up on things, sitting up playing with her toys, switching from one hand to the other, holding her own bottles, saying DaDa (typical), feeding herself, gosh…what else. It’s just crazy I guess because it all seems to be going by really fast. Slow down baby girl! It’s actually pretty rad, this stage in her life. I like it. I just know next time I look back it will be when she’s 16 and I will ask where the time went then. I guess I will come back here to the blog…
Mustache shenanigans!! Aren’t we supposed to screw with them as much as possible while they’re young? Before I know it, they’re going to be embarrassed of me and not think it’s “funny.” Gotta get it in now! Mustaches, hats, sunglasses, accessories…it’s all hysterical.
There’s that sweet smile. I wish I could post a video on here from a walk that we took the other night. She was giggling so much. It was the cutest thing EVER!! I just die when I hear her voice. Ever thought of that?? What your kids voice will sound like? You can’t really tell until they’re about one…or two I guess. Jake started chatter boxing at like 10 months. But anyway, it is weird to think about sometimes. Finn has this deep, belly laugh when we tickle her and I almost fall over every time I hear it. It’s the best.
Finnley looks to her brother for “what’s happening next.” He’s so good with her, I really can’t complain. Especially for being
not even 2.5 years old. He loves her so much, there’s no hiding that. He asks about her if she’s not in the room, or he’ll wake up from a nap and ask what she’s doing. It’s just heart warming. He also rides over her fingers with his choo-choo train, grabs things out of her hands, wrestles with her without her approval and tells her “NO! That’s mine!” What are big brothers for, right? I can’t wait to see them grow up together. We had our children close together in mind that they would have a close relationship… Now THEY BETTER! Or else. Haha…
Can’t handle her sometimes. She’s got her Daddy’s perfect eyebrows, big blue eyes and the best butt chin on the planet. Her Nonny says it’s where she keeps all her secrets. I believe it. It’s her special trait, her beauty mark, that she started all on her own because no one in either family has that. Way to go Fifi!! I love you my sweet angel baby!
