Finley Sparks Jones Makes Her Debut






First Family Vacation - Taylor and Marion St.
Sweet Finley arrived August 21, 2009. At birth she weighed 7 lbs 3 ounces, measured 20.25 inches and had a head full of hair.

As most of my friends know I've never experienced the birth process before. Well, I have now! Not one of you told me I had to participate!!!

After a perfect pregnancy we ran into a small snag at the very end. During labor, it was determined pretty late that Finley was turned the wrong way. To make matters a little more difficult, her hand was next to her head. She was stuck, big time. Finally, the doctor suctioned her out and little Finley began life with a nice cone head!

We couldn't be a happier little family! So far, daddy is her favorite. ;-)

OMG! Totally teary eyed! I can't think of anyone who deserves this miracle more than the two of you! Finley is breathtaking as i knew she would be. I love her name too. Dang! Glad Sparkie and I put a hold on lunch plans bc i have a feeling i might of seen more than i bargained for. Give Finley Jones and Sparkie hugs for me and def take one for yourself. See you three next week. Note to Finely: Welcome to the best girls golf group ever created. 'SeaDonks' kick it! LOL. Can't wait to babysit. Let me know if i can run errands for y'all, bring food, walk sweetie (if she doesn't bite me) or anything else. SO EXCITED! CONGRATS!!

Thanks for the kind words! I'm sorry I haven't responded by now but I must admit it's tough to get to a computer. By the time I get to one, someone walks in before I can type a thought!

I'll keep the pics coming and once again...THANK YOU!! Finley and mamma are doing great!
