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.

And so it starts

Korri has basically been potty training herself with little to no effort on our part, so we decided (after a full day of no accidents on Tuesday when home with Jim!) it is time to officially start potty training her! Is my baby really growing up so quickly?!?! We talked to daycare this afternoon and they are onboard! So, Korri and I went to Target tonight and picked out some big girl unders.
It was a tough choice between Dora and Minnie Mouse but Minnie won out in the end. She was so proud of herself and insisted on walking through the store (something she has NEVER been allowed to do before) carrying her unders. She even put them on the counter to pay all by herself, too. Truly getting to be a big girl!

We stopped at McDonald's on the way home for some nuggets and apple slices to celebrate. She had to go potty after we got our food, held it until done with dinner and went in a public restroom! Sweet! Then she insisted on putting her unders on. Well, they were in the car, so we compromised to take the diaper off while at McDonald's and put unders on when we got home. So...the second the front door was open, she freaked about her unders. She showed daddy and then had to put them on...which then led to three pairs at once! Hmmm...I think we need to talk about how unders work! LOL. I tried to compare them to socks with her, but it fell on deaf ears (perhaps because she is also obsessed with socks?!?!).

I'm not overly vested in the outcome at this point, considering Finn wasn't potty trained until about a year ago! But I also feel like if she is interested now, now is the time because I don't want the door to shut on the opportunity. Here's hoping!
