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.

74th Annual Ortonville Cornfest

Not only was last night uneventful, when Jim went to give Finn a dose of codeine around midnight, Finn refused it. So, he must have been feeling okay. This morning, I brought Finn into our bed when I left for work and he wanted some then, which is fine with me! Bring on the meds.

In all the excitement of yesterday, I didn't get to post about our weekend in Oville! It was Cornfest, which we go back for every year. It is so much fun when you have kids. We ate lots of food, walked around (and pushed the stroller up and down those darn "mountains" in Oville), watched the firefighter barrel water fights, ate waffles at the waffle breakfast and went to the parade on Sunday.

Here are some pics from the parade:
Since the parade was smack dab in the middle of nap time, both kids were pretty tuckered out by the end (hence the snuggle time with NeNe above!). Korri fell asleep on the stroller walk home and didn't even budge when Jim picked her up and buckled her in the car. Finn has become quite the parade aficionado. He knows if he waves at the people, he gets more candy! It wasn't the normal route this year (because of a detour) but I like that it was a very wide road with a wide shoulder...allows for the kids to move around a bit more without us freaking out that they will get run over. The kiddos got quite the candy haul...not sure who is going to eat it!

Of course, I woke up with a massive migraine on Sunday that completely disabled me. I often get nauseous with migraines, but rarely vomit...not so lucky on Sunday! Thankfully, Jim took care of me while Memere took care of the kids (even took them to church by herself!) and John and Dave figured out a way for me to get some Imitrex, which I did around 1pm and felt better enough by 2pm to go watch the parade. Yuck! I've started charting my headaches/migraines since I plan to go see a specialist after the first of the year. It is really sad when you SEE how many you get and how often.
