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.

Hubba hubba

Finn's new thing as of this weekend is to say, "hubba hubba." I have no idea where he got it but it is the funniest thing ever (if not a little crude, but he is little and doesn't know what it means)! I'll have to make sure he doesn't insult any girls (ha, ha!).

We got Finn's Jumperoo back out at his PT's suggestion. Finn has some problems with bending his knees, so she thought jumping would help that. I'd thought Finn was too old for it and he never really loved being in it anyway, so it was brought downstairs. But he LOVES it!
He even asked to go in it this morning and was happy for maybe 20 minutes or more. Hey, with how mobile he is quickly becoming, it is kind of nice knowing he will be in the same spot when I come back! And he is jumping in it, so hopefully that helps with his legs.

EI PT came over for their last visit before fall this morning. I was so excited to show her Finn's new "trick" of pulling up to furniture. She was very impressed considering she was here last Wednesday and he was not doing it (he could do it, but not independently and consistently). Then at the end of the visit, I asked if we could work on stairs because he has still be struggling with them. Well, low and behold, here Finn is about 4 steps up the stairs:
We stopped at that height, so he wouldn't get scared when he turned around and looked down. He has no clue how to go down the stairs. We showed him how to do it with his legs and how to slide down on his tummy. Hopefully he'll learn one way because having the ability to only go up is NOT a good or safe thing! We really need to get a gate, but our stairs are not going to be easy to find one that fits. Argh.
