This is a personal post today. I'm a little late taking her 9-year-old photos. It's not always organized, but yesterday after playing a little catch in the yard, I looked at her and said "Finley, your hair looks so beautiful right now. Let's take some photos." She was in agreement as long as I was ok with her wearing the new lipstick she just purchased. "Why not!" I agreed. She let me pick out her dress and she wiped her face off and put her own lipstick on. She wore a bracelet that we had brought back from Texas this past spring break. We spent about 40 minutes getting these images.
Finley Faith, you are beautiful, kind, compassionate, athletic, so so funny, independent, a good friend, a sweet sister, an amazing daughter, a graceful dancer, and an ambitious human being. Your laugh and nose scrunch is my energy! You have a bright future, and I couldn't have asked for anything more when God gave you to us.
Here's to being 9 and just who you are intended to be! You are so loved!
