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.

A Worm, a Spider and a Fly

It took Finn exactly two nights to be able to open his door with the lock on the knob! Sheesh. But I don't know if he "figured it out" per se because to my knowledge, he's only done it once...but not for lack of trying! This morning, he was frantically trying to open it when I went down to do yoga. And when I came back up, he was sitting on his rocking chair, reading a book and attempting to blow his own nose. It was actually really cute. Korri lasted a while in her big girl unders and just as she started to pee, she looked at me and said, "Potty!" I think her reaction time is a little slow, but we'll keep trying when and if she wants to.

Saturday after swimming, we went home, had lunch and met our friends Laena and Braeland (and their mom and dad!) at Stages Theater in Hopkins to watch the play "Diary of a Worm, a Spider and a Fly." Sharon had checked the DVDs out from the library and let us borrow them beforehand so the kids would have a reference to the story/characters. It was a great idea because Finn LOVED the DVDs (each was 10 minutes, I think!) and neither he nor Braeland moved a muscle or said a peep during the entire play. The ladies on the other hand, got a little antsy toward the end, but it was kind of long. Finn even stood in line after to meet the characters (when he got up there, he wouldn't say anything, but handed them his program for them to sign!!! So cute!).
Finn "meeting" Spider.
Overall, I thought the play was super cute and I was beyond happy with how well the kids behaved. Maybe it is time to take them to their first movie?!?! Thanks, Sharon, for including us in this wonderful family outing!
