"March for Babies"

Today was the March of Dimes "March for Babies" walk for the Houston Northwest area. I signed up to walk with my playgroup and a friend who also had a premature baby. Thanks to several sponsors, I was able to raise $1,000 towards the research that March of Dimes funds. Thank you to those of you who were so generous to donate money to such a worthy cause! The March of Dimes asked for preemie pictures and stories because they were given a $500 grant from a sign company in the area to make 20 posters featuring preemie babies. Abigail was chosen to have her pictures and story be on a poster that was placed at the registration area for the walk along with about 19 other preemie babies!

Did James walk with her in the baby carrier when she was tired of the stroller? Great job on the walk, too. It looks like you all had fun. I can't believe how big Abigail looks now- with her little strawberry blonde hair! She is too cute.
