Finley Quinn!

Brian and I woke up early yesterday (on very little sleep) and left for the hospital to have our little Labor Day baby!

Last pregnancy photo - 39 weeks, 4 days!
We got to the hospital and got set up for our delivery.  The big issue last week was that the hospital was going to be short staffed because of the holiday, so we actually ended up going in to surgery around 11:00!  After getting the spinal and getting situated, Brian was finally able to join me!

At 11:52 I felt a little bit of pulling, and then heard the sweet cries of our precious little baby girl!  Meet Finley Quinn!
We are so in love with this baby girl!  She looks a lot like Wyatt did as a baby, but she makes little faces when she pouts or when she cries and she looks like one of the other two. Other times she is perfectly all Finley!

Finley Quinn is our smallest baby.  She weighed 6 pounds, 14 ounces and was 19.75 inches long.  She's over a pound smaller than Hudson was!  She has lots of really dark hair (not a trace of red that I've seen).  Her eyes are big and dark blue right now, but they may get darker.  She is absolutely perfect, and I am so thankful that we have this wonderful, beautiful baby girl.

I love the look on her face in this sweet picture.  She must be so confused about what is happening to her, but I can tell you that she had her Daddy wrapped around her finger as soon as she was born!
I spent a few hours in recovery, and only Brian was allowed back with me.  Brian brought her back after her bath and I got her latched on and breastfeeding.  She was so good - and she must have been hungry.  She's using me as a human pacifier right now, but she loves to eat!  

After we got situated in our room with our sweet pea, my parents came to visit, followed by Brian's parents and some super special visitors!

The big sister, who is so happy to finally have her baby sister here!  She is in love!
And this very proud big brother.  He actually held her for a long time, and he did a good job keeping an eye on her.  I have a feeling he might be a really great helper for me.  And he started Kindergarten today!
Reese cuddling with me.  She kept telling me that she misses me very, very much.  Hudson basically ran around the room with very little regard for his baby sister.  I'm not completely sure that that isn't a good thing right now.  He can be a little rough!
We are in love with this baby girl, and I am enjoying all the little moments that I'm getting with her right now!  Yesterday on the way to the hospital I was telling Brian that it's so weird, but I don't remember our family before Hudson.  And I don't remember what it was like to not know him, or not know what he looks like.  Those final moments while I was still pregnant and waiting to be surprised by this little girl were very sweet.  But I'm so glad that she's a part of our lives now.  We are so in love!


  1. What a beauty! The first thing I noticed was that her eyes look exactly like Wyatt's. And what a pretty name, too! (All my kids had heads full of dark hair, too. Get ready, people will mention it A LOT!!)
    Congrats and good job, Mama!
