Finnegan is a sitter-upper! He has been able to get to sitting for a while, but not consistently and not reliably. Well, as of a couple days ago, he can go from sitting to tummy to rolling and back at will! It is such a good feeling because I wasn't sure he WAS going to get it. Now he just knows that if his leg is in the way, keep pushing backwards and it will get out of the way. Oh, and he can get to sitting through the middle like he usually gets down from sitting, but I don't care! Next: figuring out this whole crawling thing!
We went to ECFE yesterday afternoon where we had a class on what to do if your baby is choking sponsored by the American Red Cross. It was very informative and now I think Finn is going to choke every second! I didn't really think about it before. Hopefully it is a skill that we never have to use.
After class, Becky and Austin came over. Too bad the weather was so yucky. Poor Austin, he hasn't been able to go to the park in a long time because it is always bad weather when they come over. Hopefully it will be nice next time. Pete stopped by after work and we all had dinner. Very nice evening.
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.
