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.

Potty time!

As you may recall, Korri was 100% potty trained about a year ago. And then the bottom fell out and she was wetting every night (maybe the stress of a new baby?!?)! For my sanity's sake, we begrudgingly put her back in pull-ups. We had the standing "rule" that if she was dry for one week straight, she could start wearing underwear to bed again. To be honest though, she was wet most of the time.

Well, when we went to Wisconsin Dells two weeks ago, she didn't wet at all while we were there. So we celebrated and reminder her of the rule when we got home...and she was dry for ONE WEEK! I just couldn't believe it. But I noticed that she was finally able to wake herself up to go potty during the night, which is something she's never really done. So we pulled out the potty mats (absorbent, reusable bed pads that go over her sheets) and let her wear unders on the night of the 4th (pictured above). Over the last four nights, she's been dry two but it is something (for now 50% isn't bad)! We put a new pad and pjs next to her bed at bedtime, so she can change during the night and go back to bed (which works unless you put pj's out she can't get on by herself...lesson learned!).

We'll see but I feel like something "switched" and hopefully it sticks.
