Lilypie Fourth Birthday tickers Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers
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.

I love the teething phase

...said no parent ever!

Teeth update(s).

I thought I'd do this all in one post instead of as they came in (more for posterity's sake than anything) and so as not to bore you with multiple posts.

I have to admit, that all things considered, at least this phase of his teething was not bad at all! He is pretty chill about the whole thing and if I hadn't been a fanatic about checking, I don't think we'd even know all of this teeth are in!

April 5, 2015: First tooth came in; front bottom right.
April 6, 2015: Second tooth came in front bottom left.
May 13, 2015: Third and fourth teeth came in, lower lateral incisors.

May 29, 2015:
Mac's fifth tooth came in on Friday, May 29. It is his upper left lateral incisor (#5 on the chart). His darn top front teeth have yet to come in! Although, not having them does NOT slow him down in the eating department!

June 10, 2015:
Mac's sixth tooth came in on Wed, June 10. It is his upper right lateral incisor. I'm not 100% which teeth they are, since his upper front ones haven't come in yet. I keep saying it, but I don't think it will be long! Plus, his bottoms ones have grown in so much, it looks funny (but cute!). And if the top ones don't come in soon, it will look like he has fangs!

June 14, 2015:
Mac's seventh tooth came in on Sat, June 14. It is his upper left front tooth. We were starting to wonder if he even had those front two teeth, since they are usually the third and fourth to come in, but he does! Now once he gets the last front tooth, I'll stop checking (too hard to check for the back ones and not lose a finger!).
June 22, 2015:
And finally, number eight came in today, June 22. For those keeping track, that is EIGHT teeth in two and a half months! Talk about fast and furious...although, I'd much prefer this to a long drawn out process like Finn's was (HORRIBLE!). I think Mac is a tough little bugger because you'd never know he is teething, for the most part. I think we'll have a break for a few months before his first molars come in.

Here is today's picture of his toothy smile! Hard to see the ones that just came in, but it won't be long and he'll no longer look like Dracula (because his lateral incisors came in before his front ones!).

Also, after much ado on Sunday, Finn's third tooth came out Monday, June 8 in the morning while watching cartoons and sucking his thumb. It is his lower right lateral incisor. He wrote a special note to the tooth fairy with a very specific request: a toy transformer, please! Hmmm...I didn't know tooth fairies took requests! His did this time but I reminded him that she probably won't have special toys with her next time.
