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.

Happy birthday, Koko!
Holy cow...what did we do before you came along? Seriously, you bring so much light, sass and love into our lives that we would be empty without it and you. You cause us to learn and stretch as parents almost every single day...which is a good thing, right? You know what you think, feel and want at all times. That will get you far in life. The last two years have literally gone by in a flash. I love everything about you and you leave an impression on everybody you come in contact with. People stop us almost every single time we go out to comment on how cute you are, which I love! My wish for you is that your light continues to shine as bright as it does right now, that you continue to be as happy or happier than you are almost all of the time and that you continue to be a snuggle-bug and express your love in the millon ways you do every day.

You bring so much love and joy into our lives, Baby Grill. I can't wait to see what life has in store for you.
