Korri had her follow up eye doctor appointment earlier this week and things are fine! I was a little worried that her sight would have reverted back since we stopped patching, but it didn't! She doesn't need new glasses at this point (the ones she has will work fine) and she doesn't need to be seen again for 6 months! Yay!
This morning, the four of us got up super early and went out to tour the daycare center near our new home. The place is awesome and makes me feel so much better about switching. And the best part (if you ask Jim)? You don't have to pay if you don't go!!! Seriously?!?! In addition to the lower rates (we save almost $200/wk!), that is going to save us so much money. They don't have a Pre-K class like what Finn is in now, but they follow a Pre-K curriculum so he should still be challenged. The kids seemed to really love it and everybody was so nice when we were touring. We took home registration information with the soft date of 8/12 to start! After, we drove by the new house so the kids could see it...and found out the daycare is THREE miles from our house. Sweet. Finn said he liked the house, but we obviously weren't able to walk around or go in. And I found out that unless you come to our house from the west through town...you have to drive on a gravel road to get to us! Hey, I guess we wanted the country!
So, I've been feeling crummy with sinus pressure all week but didn't have any other symptoms of a cold. I've been popping nasal decongestant like candy. Finally yesterday my coworker mentioned something about allergies and a light went on in my head...I have allergies, duh!! I've had allergies my whole life, but they are mild and usually in the spring, so it didn't even cross my mind. I guess more nasal decongestant for a while!
And because a blog post without a picture is boring, here is Korri and Prancine yesterday morning:
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.
