Lilypie Fourth Birthday tickers Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers
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.

Birthday fun

Well, it sure seems that Korri had a wonderful birthday. This was my bright eyed, "happy" birthday girl when I went to get her up.

We started the day out with a slow start (something the kids always love) and then, due to a change in plans, headed over to Rosedale to meet our friend Vinnie from ECFE to play in their play area.
We spent about an hour there and Korri loved climbing up the little bridge and sliding down...and no, not always feet first or on her butt! We ate lunch at the food court and the kids, of course. Then it was time to get back to daycare before nap time...and of course, Korri fell asleep on the way to daycare! But it must not have been much because her note said she slept for an hour and a half at daycare! Awesome. They made her a birthday crown to wear at daycare and I guess it was a big hit because all the kids wanted to wear it. Korri brought mini cookies for a special birthday treat, which went over really well, too. I let Korri pick, but I liked her choice since the cupcakes would have been a mess!

After daycare, we decided to go out for Korri's birthday dinner to El Loro (or LoLo as Korri calls it!) with NeNe and uncle Les. Korri freaked out and crawled around the house like a dog when they arrived at our house. Korri insisted on wearing her crown at the restaurant, which I think it really cute. She didn't eat very well unless you consider chips and cheese dip a good, balanced dinner! Oh, well, it was her birthday. They even sang to her and brought some sopapilla, a crispy bread/chips covered in cinnamon, sugar, honey and chocolate. Yummm-O!
We got home and sang to her, had some cake (a jumbo cupcake from Target...perfect size!) and then opened presents. She did a great job blowing out her candles...all four of them (don't ask!). She loved the rain boots and sparkly shoes from NeNe and had to put them on right away of course. She also loved her new princess potty chair that sings when you go potty! She sat on it for quite a while last night, but no luck! I think once she actually does it a couple times, she will be potty trained because she will want to do it more and more. She also got the cutest pink cowgirl boots...that have squeakers in them! Oops. She HAD to wear them today and once she realized they squeaked, she stomped around constantly. I apologized to daycare when we dropped her off because she wouldn't take them off! I honestly didn't know they were going to be that annoying, but hopefully it just becomes white noise...or the squeakers break. LOL. I should have gotten a size bigger than I did, so on the bright side, she won't be able to wear them forever.

Happy birthday, Koko! We love you so much. She will tell anybody who asks that she is, "TWO!"
