Today was the March of Dimes March for Babies. It could not have been a more beautiful day to go for a 3.2 mile walk. It was gorgeous! We had 18 friends walk with us as part of the Million Dollar Babies team. It means so much to us that our friends want to support us and the March of Dimes in our endeavors to eliminate infant mortality and prematurity.
We also want to thank everyone for financially supporting us this year. Once again the generosity of our friends and family has blown us away. Drew and I raised almost $3500 this year. Helping save babies is a good cause. It’s a good thing to donate to. One day all babies will be born healthy - we have to walk to get there.
The only small hiccup of the day was that Lindy, Will, and I caught colds this week. Will and I weren’t feeling 100%, but we definitely walked. Lindy came down with a cold on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning and by Thursday afternoon Will and I had it. We stuffed our pockets full of tissues and we walked! Lindy slept most of the walk. I thought Will would since he didn’t feel great but he stayed awake.

Katie, Claire, and Micah (a returning walker from last year. Little Claire was inside the womb last year though!)
We saw one of our neonatologist, Dr. Welch.
I hate to see Lindy and Will sick, especially since we were so excited that it is April (the first month they consider it safe to come out of hibernation). But I’ll admit that both youngins fell asleep on me this week and it was kind of sweet to snuggle them. They are always so busy and on the go that we don’t get good snuggle time anymore.
