In honor of February being "I Love To Read" month, today is "Dress as your favorite book character Day" at school. Finn picked Kai, the Red Ninja of Fire from Ninjago. AND I happened to find this costume for less than $8 (yea, EIGHT DOLLARS!!) on Amazon. Good ol' Amazon!
He didn't like the mask that covered his face. Oh and he was TICKED that is didn't come with a sword (which I didn't think was appropriate for school anyway). Last year he picked the book "What does the Fox Say" and went as a fox. Poor Ms. Thorsen had to read it to the class (yes, it is exactly the same as the song)! This year, the Ninjago book should be more appropriate, but they are kind of long! Oh, well.
And because I love my boy so much, here is his beautiful face this morning before getting on the bus:
I don't take a lot of pictures of him anymore since he isn't here all day. Plus, I wanted to get a picture of his teeth growing in! Gotta love the big adult teeth in a little kid mouth!!
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.
