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.

Watch that baseball soar

I keep waiting to mention the Twins game until I get my pictures off my camera, but at this point, it might be next year! Ha. On Sunday, the four of us went to the Twin's game for March of Dimes and got to walk out on the field, again! This was the third time for us, but it was still really neat. The temperature was perfect. Oddly, the game we went to in April was so hot, we were afraid the kids were going to get heat stroke. But in August (last weekend), it was in the 70's, cloudy and actually had to bring along and put on sweatshirts for the kiddos! That's just crazy MN weather for ya. Game time was 1:10pm, which is always tough because that is nap time. We made it to the start of the 7th inning and then had to leave. The one nice thing about Korri being older...she walked all the way from our car and back again! No more carrier, which always hurt my neck and back. The bad thing about Korri being older...she just wanted to walk around and explore the whole time. Luckily, the lady next to us was very nice and didn't mind Korri trying to climb over her to get to the aisle! I'm bummed we didn't get a family picture this year, which we've done every year, but oh, well. And for the record, the Twin's lost, but we did get to see a homerun and Finn didn't completely freak this year...he must be growing up (or was just prepared this time!).

On Tuesday, Korri had her follow-up dermatologist appointment at Amplatz. The doctor was very pleased with the improvement and said to just keep doing what we've been doing. She is hopeful that Korri will outgrow the worst of it, which is good, but it is very likely this is something she will always have to deal with to some degree. We are supposed to go back in three months, but since that is right around her 2 year well-child, we figured we'd have her regular Ped check her out and only go back if there was a reason to.

And because I hate having a blog without at least one picture, we had our first family movie night on Tuesday night after bath.
We borrowed Happy Feet from Austin, daddy popped some popcorn and we watched the movie...for about 10 minutes. Hey, they are young and I don't expect them to sit there for very long. We tried to keep Korri from eating the popcorn, since it is a choking hazzard, but that lasted for about 2 minutes. Oh, well. It was just fun having time together and of course, because I was on the floor, it was a free-for-all to climb on mommy!
