thursday, march 8




she's four!  and we are making her feel extra, extra special these next few days because, well, she is.  right now i am listening to her giggle like crazy in the other room as she wrestles with her dada.  she has brought such joy to our lives and taught us so much about ourselves and the amount of love you can possibly hold in your heart for one little being.  



there will surely be recaps of her special day, but today i want to reach out to you, like i do every year and ask for your help as we once again commit to fighting prematurity.  i'm sure you know the drill by now, but just in case here are the details:

the widget on the left hand side will lead you to our page and will allow you to donate or sign up to walk as part of team adali's angels for this years march for babies.   the date is april 28.  the time is 9:00 am.  the place is forest park.  be there or be square.  as always, we will be having the afterparty at our house.  does free food and drinks make you wanna donate??  maybe a free t-shirt…. 

this year we are doing something fun that i am so excited about.  my brother teaches a graphics class to highschool students and we are having the students design the t-shirt for the walk this year.  every student will design a t-shirt, we will narrow our favorites down to 5 and then we will put those designs on the blog for everyone to vote on.  the design with the most votes wins and will be printed on the shirts by the students for this years walk.  fun right?  so if you sign up to walk with us this year, please make sure to email me with your t-shirt size.  

i can't thank all of you enough for your continued support in a cause that means so much to us.  there's no better feeling than when you have friends {and family} that are always there for you….even when you keep asking them for money.    

now pardon me, i have a cake to bake…red velvet with pink icing was her request.

    Can’t wait to see all of your fantastic ideas. You’re an inspiration! Can I hire you for a 1st birthday in April?! Happy birthday Adali! So nice to have watched you grow up and nice to see a premie with a happy ending (not always the case when you work in a NICU!).
