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.

Winter Storm Caesar

We had a lazy weekend. I honestly don't remember the last time we had a weekend with NOTHING planned. In fact, the kids and I didn't even leave our house. It snowed a little bit on Saturday and was practically melted by that evening, which Finn was pretty upset about. However, he was thrilled to see the blanket of white stuff all over everything when he woke up on Sunday. And even happier to see it was still there when he woke up from nap in the afternoon! Apparently they name winter storms now and Winter Storm Caesar had a lot to say. We went outside after naps on Sunday and around 5pm, we had between 11 and 12" and it was still snowing heavily at that point. Not sure how much we ended up with, but I am no longer concerned about having a white Christmas! The kids LOVED being outside and watching daddy with the snow blower. Korri was hilarious because if she fell over, she couldn't get herself back up with all the layers she had on. She would say, "stuck!" We need to add ropes to their saucers so we can pull them around. Last night they were happy sitting on them and scooping up the snow to make "snow pies." Here are some pics (more on our pic website):
We were outside for an hour and a half, I think, and I had to bribe them with dinner in order to get them to come in. The fresh air and exercise must have tired them out because they were in bed, sleeping without having made a peep before 8! Hmmm...maybe I don't hate winter and snow as much as I thought I did...Thanks for blowing our massive sidewalks and driveway, Jim! I know it was tough, but it would have been tougher with a shovel. Side note: need to get kid shovels so they can "help."
