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.

All by myself

After several days of working with Mac to self-feeding and not just putting puffs in his mouth for him, I'm very happy to report that he can now...feed himself!

From Videos

He is now using his pincer grasp and picking up and putting puffs in his mouth (a lot at one time, apparently!) like he's been doing it for months. He sometimes has a hard time getting the puff to stay in his mouth, but he does pretty darn good considering last Thursday, he wasn't doing it AT ALL.

I know this is a very small thing but given the last couple week's we've had, I'm going to enjoy it! Now, here's hoping he "catches on" to the other motor stuff just as quickly!

Also, he is still learning to eat table food. I gave him pieces of pancake this morning and he didn't do so well (LOTS of choking). He'll figure it out, though.
