Another milestone for baby...snacks!
I'd been looking for snacks for a little while but they all required that baby could crawl! Well, that is far off (from what I can tell) and I really wanted something that could distract him for a minute or two when needed. I tried a piece of the kids' cereal one day and that did NOT go well!
Then, Target to the rescue. I randomly saw ONE package that said 7+ months. Done. I didn't care what they cost or how they tasted; we were going to try them. Which we did to mixed results. He's still figuring out how to get them in his mouth (he can get them in his fist but not deposit them) and chew them but they dissolve fairly quickly, so only a few chokes here and there! He LOVED them though, so I think with time, he'll figure it out. Yay!
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.
