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.

Tough guy

Yesterday morning we had our level 2 ultrasound. They take a detailed look at the baby's anatomy from the top of the head/brain all the way to counting the toes. Still a girl ;) There was nothing to indicate any problems, so that was good to hear (a mother always worries!). She was being stubborn again for this visit. Last time she was facing my back so we couldn't get any profile pics and this time she was facing directly into my left hip...and you can't get an image through my bones...or it is very tough at least. They have the ability to do 3-D images and while we couldn't get her face (for above mentioned reason), we did get a profile:
A little hard to see, but she is facing to your left and her hand is over her mouth. The tech said they will try again next time to get a better shot. We got a million regular pictures this time. Poor Finn...he had one ultrasound with maybe 5 to 10 pictures. This girl already has around 30! I guess things are different for each kid ;)

Here is a picture of Finn's nose the day of the "fall":
Here it is the next day (looks worse, I think):
But honestly, Finn doesn't even know it is there. Well, except everybody keeps asking him about his boo-boo. Sheesh, you'd think he lost a leg or something! I think it just makes him look tough.

Kind of started packing yesterday, but have LOTS to do today. Planning on leaving at 5:30 AM for the airport tomorrow. Boo. It's going to be a long day. But the resort we FINALLY decided on staying at looks really nice; has 8 pools, mini golf and has a zero-degree entry pool for Finn (well, all kids, not just him)! In all honesty, that is why I picked the I don't have to actually BE in the water the entire time Finn wants to swim (and because it is 3 miles from Jim's conference). Too bad I finished my book last night. Now, what to read while on vacation?
