Fifths and Disappointment

No, not fifths of liquor....Fifth's Disease. That's what has caused Riley to be covered in red spots all week. It's not dangerous, and it's not even making him uncomfortable, which it great. However, it is contagious and can be dangerous to people with compromised immune systems, people with lung problems, and pregnant women.

Hmmm.....compromised immune systems and lung problems.....that sounds an awful lot like many former preemies who might be at the March for Babies. Pregnant women? Lots of pregnant women participate in events that promote the health of all newborn babies. Yep. You got it. We weren't allowed to go to the March for Babies this weekend.

I was so disappointed, but I am trying to focus on the fact that, with all of your help, we did raise $655 for the March of Dimes, which is fantastic. Of course, the donations were the real point of the March, but I wanted to see Ross and Riley walking: strong, healthy and grateful for the incredible medical care they received when they were born prematurely. So, I did what any disappointed Mom would do - I took tons of pictures of them being silly at home this weekend!


Our first time taking a bath together in the big tub!

What? Am I being rude?

The shirt says it all!

I hope Riley's feeling better! Now I don't feel so bad that the girls and I couldn't make it...Lainey and I are still fighting bronchitis...yuck!

I'm sorry you weren't able to do the walk, but you raised a great amount of money, and like you said, that's the point!

I hope Riley feels better!

What a shame that you guys weren't able to walk. Well there'll always be next year!
Congrats on raising so much.
Have a good rest of the week!
