March for Babies / 22 months old

Today was the 2014 March for Babies. We didn't reach our goal of $626 this year but I feel more enriched this year as we had quality time with our very best friends from our pProm and prematurity experience. 

We have met so many amazing people along this journey, and today we spent the walk with Jill, Grant, and her pProm survivor twins Croix and Koral; we saw our NICU BFF's Jen and Matt and their twins Lily and Liam, and Laurel and her son Weston. My parents and aunt walked too, and they helped us wrangle babies, push strollers, and keep items in check. 





What amazes me the most is how much the little dragons and their friends have grown in just a year. Even though the babies wore the same onesies from It's a Preemie Thing, they were at the end of the life cycle for the 6-12 month size. The older kids, with the exception of James are all walking and all over the place. They are talking and as cute as ever. The NICU where we all were connected seems to be such a long time ago.
