Jim's cousin, Ann, came over to watch Finn for us Thursday night so we could have a grown up "date night." It was awesome and much needed. We met John and Kelsie at Buca de Beppo's and had a great meal and conversation. Might need to do it regularly so I get out of the house (with Jim!) once in a while, but without Finn! Love him, but it was nice to actually enjoy my uninterupted meal. Thanks again, Ann, for watching Finn and thanks, John and Kelsie for the fun evening. Wish we would have had room for ice cream afterwards. Boo.
Yesterday was my last day of watching Austin. Sad :( Becky starts fall classes next week, so her school day care is open on Fridays...much easier to bring Austin there, then lug him all the way over to my house and come back to pick him up. I understand, but Finn and I are very sad. We'll have to make dinner or play dates so we still get to see him regularly. We've been spoiled! Since it was his last day, I let Austin pick what we did. He picked going to the pool...but we got rained out after an hour. Oh, well. We came home, had lunch and naps and then he got to show me how he rides his new big boy bike! So cute. Finn chased after him in his walker. I think he likes the freedom the walker gives him, even if he isn't very good at steering it (steering is not our concern right now...just taking the steps).
This morning we are off to Oville for the much anticipated Cornfest. There are different activities around town with a fair-like atmosphere and there will be ample opportunity for Lynn to show Finn off. Finn will also get to see his great great grandma, Granny. So far, Finn has gone each year...even when I was pregnant with him! Should be a fun weekend. The fact that Jim came to bed last night at 5am should make for an interesting ride there. Hope Finn (and Jim!) is good in the car!
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.
