Thank You!!!

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
Once again our March of Dimes Team Elizabeth Grace was a great success. We had about 100 walkers decked out in purple shirts and raised $3400 and counting (last year $1500 was turned in day of, so I am sure our total will go up). Thank you to all of you who donated to our important cause, I surpassed my goal and raised $1156! Rain was a threat in the forecast for a good portion of the week; but the day could not have been more beautiful. There were thousands of people all walking for a common goal-to save babies. The girls both had a great time and I enjoyed seeing so many people we knew- friends, NICU staff, FAB friends, other NICU grads, and of course lots of church friends who were walking on Team Elizabeth Grace. The walk itself took forever mostly due to the long stays at the check-points. We started the walk near the front and ended up at the end!

Happy 2nd Birthday Elizabeth!

Our tiny little girl is starting to become a "big girl"! Two years ago today Elizabeth entered the world without a sound or a breath. We were told there was only a 20% chance that she would live; she would probably not survive the week. So far today; she has climbed onto the window sill, watched the dogs and ducks out the window, danced, read 3 books over and over and over, watched Sesame Street, eaten 4 pieces of cheese and 3 apple slices, and spoke in sentences. (she has been up since 5:30, gives her lots of time to get stuff done!) I wonder what she will surprise us with tomorrow?!
