One more step further away from babyhood: Finn graduated to his big boy car seat yesterday!Okay, so he is crying in this pic, but I don't think it is because he doesn't like the new seat...he was over due for a nap. A friend of a friend who is car seat certified installed the seat for us yesterday and showed us how to work it. It helped that she has installed the exact same car seat in the same model car before, but she does all models (car seat and car). If you want her info, let me know! It feels GREAT knowing he is as safe as he possibly can be.
Anyway, LOVE IT! Finn is much higher and can see out the windows. Plus, no more lugging around the super heavy infant carrier! Finn must have liked the new seat because this was him about 20 minutes after the first picture. See, I told you he needed a nap! I feel like it is tilting a little too much forward because his head was dropping down, but she said it was the right angle. Maybe this will help strengthen his neck muscles!
After the install, we headed over to Stacey and Sam's to have some yummy lunch and watch the Twins (they won, yay!). We spent the rest of the day being lazy at home and daddy packed for his work trip. Jim left this morning at 4:30am for DC and will be gone all week. Boo. Finn and I are meeting him in Chicago Friday evening. I'm trying not to stress about your first flight together (alone, if you didn't catch that!).
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.
