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.

Up up and away

And just like that, Mac figured out stairs this morning!

From Videos

We've been trying to work on stairs for a while now but Mac was NOT having it. He'd whine and cry and resist until it felt like, "what's the point?" Last week, he tolerated it marginally better but both PTs said to focus on other things and it will come later.

Fast forward to this morning. I was upstairs brushing my teeth and Korri came to tell me that "baby's going up the stairs!" Um, what? I ran over and he was on the landing! I asked Finn how Mac got there and Finn said he climbed. Scary! So I went behind him, Jim went to the top, and sure enough...up he went!

If you look at his technique, he skips a step (putting his right knee on the stairs) but Finn did the same thing and to be seems more efficient to me, too!

Just like that. Like he's been doing it forever. What's the big deal, mom? What a little stinker! Now we REALLY need to get the new gate installed (the bane of our existence). Watch out world, Mac is on the move and now vertically mobile! Cross one more thing off his "to do" list!
