As of a couple days ago, Finn has started playing with his toys in the toy area (instead of the middle of the living room)! I think this coincides with his ability to crawl and get around much better. And to that point, as of today, the "Finn" crawl, as we liked to call it, is almost nonexistent! He is able to stay on his knees and get where he wants to go. I can't believe I can finally and actually say Finn is a crawler! Man, if only they had Olympic medals for the efforts we put in to get him to this point!
Finn has also started "talking" in full sentences. Now, before you freak out and say that isn't possible, let me explain. He isn't speaking English when he is talking, he is speaking "Finn," but it isn't just one or two syllables at a time any more like is used to be. He goes on and on and he honestly thinks he is saying something. Like when he is done, he waits for us to acknowledge what he has said. Very cute.
Finn already called her and "sang" to her, but he wants to be sure to wish auntie Becca a very happy birthday today (and uncle Alex, too!).
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.
