We went to the beach last week and Mac worn the exact same swim suit that Finn did the LAST time we went to this beach (Elm Creek Park...LOVE it!). Side note: it is a man-made swimming pond with filtered, chlorinated water and a sandy beach! Perfect! Although I'm pretty sure Mac ate his weight in sand. Why is it so appealing to put sand in your mouth? Yuck.
Anyway, here is Finn, at 18 1/2 months:
Here is Mac, at 12 months:
This shows me two things. 1. Mac is a LOT bigger than Finn was! 2. Mac needs a hair cut! Look how clean cut Finn's hair is! But then Mac won't look like my baby any more :(
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.
