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.

Perspective

I'm sure you're expecting something profound, but don't hold your breath! I want to talk toilet paper. I think it is funny how life teaches you lessons and gives you perspective. We have a membership to Costco and try to save money on household items by shopping there (who wouldn't?!?!). Well, we were very spoiled in regards to our toilet paper preference and realized as such when I bought a jumbo package of the Kirkland brand (Costco's generic in-house brand) TP. We hated it with the heat of a thousands suns. So, when we were getting low, I went back and got a national brand name instead...only to find out it was even WORSE than the Kirkland stuff. This new stuff isn't even two ply, at least the Kirkland's was. Who cares about that expensive stuff that we used to get; now I'd be perfectly happy trading all of the Scotts (don't EVER buy it!) for Kirkland and calling it a day. Jim was wondering if we could donate it to some high school kids to use for TP-ing somebody house!

We had a good weekend. Memere was here visiting, which gave me a little break from "holding Korri" time. Finn LOVED having her here, as he got tons of attention. Uncle John and aunt Kelsie came over for a bit, too, so Finn got lots of basketball time with them, too! Sunday, the five of us ventured out to church. This was Finn's first time in a LONG time, but we figured with three adults, we should be able to handle two kids. Korri was fine, but just wanted to be held, which Jim quickly volunteered for. Memere did a good job of keeping Finn contained until the end, at which point he had to go out for a time out. Maybe this will help?!?! He just wants to talk and move around all through church. It is frustrating.

Finn fell into his toy box this morning! I thought it was hilarious, but he was honestly freaking out. I was feeding Korri, so I had to deal with that first and then go help him. He had leaned so far forward that his top half went in and his feet could no longer reach the floor and he couldn't do anything about it. Poor guy...but I wish I'd had time to grab the video camera!

Holy snow storm. Yet again, we got dumped on with 12 inches of snow with this one storm. It started yesterday while we were in church and it continues to snow now, but just very lightly. It was hard to handle when last week we were in the low 50's and it felt like spring. Argh. Spring will be here eventually, right?!?!

Oh, I updated the picture website, so have at it. It should be current through yesterday (I had THREE WEEKS to upload, so it took almost all day yesterday, especially since our internet wasn't cooperating). No new videos yet, though. They take much longer to edit and upload. Enjoy!
