Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.

On the road again

Well, daddy is gone again! He is in South Carolina today through Thursday and in Michigan Thursday and Friday. Then flying home in time to go to Chuck E Cheese with Austin for his birthday! Then he is going to Grand Rapids, MN Wednesday through Friday the following week! I'm really hoping that there is a travel break after that! It is hard being a part-time single parent. Luckily, I have the best family and friends who keep me occupied while Jim is gone. And I'm lucky because Finn is such a good boy. He definitely knows when Jim is gone, but at least he doesn't act up because of it (not yet anyway!).

Jim and Finn went on a "boys" trip to Home Depot last night. Jim needed to look at what they had for styrofoam and he took Finn with. It was a nice little break for me! Here are my big boys with their big boy hats on: We got this Gopher hat for Finn maybe 9 or more months ago. It is an "infant" size and just now fits him! And he left it on the whole time they were gone, Jim said! Now if I can just get him to leave his sunglasses on, we'd be set. He likes to play with them too much.

Since Finn has teeth now, we decided we should start the good habit of brushing his teeth regularly. So the Easter Bunny brought him his very own (age appropriate) toothbrush and toothpaste! Jim did it with him first and then he grabbed the toothbrush and brushed his teeth by himself! He even did the back and forth motion!

I uploaded pictures to our picture website so they are current as of yesterday. Have a look. Lots of Easter pics! (link also on the left)
