Other than almost burning down the house on Friday, working from home is going well! I decided to take a quick break to bake some banana bread (or :boo-nana bwed," as Korri says!). Let's just say I should have 1. used bigger pans (it spilled all over). 2. attempted to clean up the spillage right away. 3. NOT tried running the clean cycle immediately after baking the bread with the spillage still in it! The entire main floor filled with smoke but I set up a relay system with the fans and it blew it out rather quickly. But man, that smell stays around for a long time. On the bright side, other than looking funny, the bread was really good (even JIM said so!).
Maybe I should complain (I like to call it venting!) more often...Korri slept through the night both nights this weekend! Sweet. She still gets up early, but I think we may need to consider room darkening shades for her room. Overall, the transition to a big girl bed went about as well as we could have hoped. Now I hope that trend continues. This is how I found her when I went to bed last night...half on and half off!
AND...Korri didn't cry this morning before daycare or during drop off! I am so proud of her. She was somewhat distracted because it was raining out and her feet got wet, but I'll take it! Finn has a mildly bad cough (does that make sense?!?!), so I don't know if he is sleeping very well and seems out of sorts. I mentioned it to his teacher when I dropped him off this morning. I thought about bringing him into the doctor late last week but Jim thought it was just a cough...then it got worse yesterday and this morning, he was wheezing. Oh, I hate sick kids...darn new daycare germs! It isn't nearly as bad as the adjustment to our old daycare...remember that? Korri's skin practically blistered and fell off! See, things can always be worse. Jim made the kids some "honey tea" for their coughs and I thought it looked funny, like they were drinking coffee:
And finally, once I realized that I wouldn't be able to watch the Vikings at home unless we got cable, the DirectTV guy came and installed it on Friday. What an ordeal that was, but the best part? It went out at Noon yesterday...yes just before kickoff of the Vikings game! Jim worked his magic (I'm SO thankful he is good at that stuff!!) and was able to finagle a signal to our basement TV and we got to watch the last 3 minutes of the first half and the second half, if you can call it a second half! Terrible game and we missed the only parts that were worth watching. Oh, well.
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.
