I survived yesterday. Jim worked from home in the AM, so he dropped us off at ECFE and picked us up, which obviously helped. I took it easy once at class and found a chair to just sit in the whole time. The other parents and teachers took Finn under their wings and played with him. He had a blast and didn't even flinch when I left to go to the parent room. Progress with separation anxiety? I sure hope so. In parent time, we talked about the word "no." Both parent's over use of it and how to deal when your child uses it. Pretty good conversation, now I just have to remember to use the tools they gave us!
The three of us went to PT in the afternoon, which was our last session at Gillette for potentially SIX MONTHS! They want to give Finn time to work on his balance and confidence before we move on to higher level gross motor things. I can't believe it has taken us a year and a half to get here. I'm almost a little sad to be done, but so happy that Finn has progressed to this point and for our schedule to free up an afternoon each week. They also are sending us to a specialist for Finn's feet. He rotates in on them when he walks, especially his right foot, and if not corrected, could lead to major problems later. Right now, it isn't a huge concern, but I'm glad they are having a specialist look at him (that appt is in Feb).
Pregnancy update: yesterday was a lot more contracting with a small amount of pain associated with it. Nothing consistent or to worry about yet, but things feel like they are progressing. That being said, what do I know?!?! Hoping for Saturday afternoon at the earliest (like we can control these things). Next OB visit on Wed.
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.
