To Elise, Happy Birthday Baby Girl!

Today at about 8:55 AM, Elise turns two. I can't believe how quickly these two years have passed. I love that little nugget so very, very much. Heart-overflowing type love. My girls are rad, in all senses of the word rad.

And I'm going to use this to plug the March of Dimes March for Babies walk on Saturday. Elise was born at 33 weeks due to preeclampsia. She weighed 3lbs. 3oz.. As you probably know, Darsie was even small, 1lb. 12oz.. Babies shouldn't be born this small and the scary thing is, some babies are born even smaller, even sicker. We can help prevent premature births and birth defects by supporting organizations such as the March of Dimes. I've raised $200 so far, which is awesome. I'd love to raise more if possible.

For each dollar that you donate to the March of Dimes, I am giving you one chance to win one of two fabulous items. Up for grabs is your choice of a handbag or a baby blanket made by me. Also up for winning is a gorgeous crocheted baby blanket made by Mommy Daisy. I know things are rough out there for a lot of people, but even a dollar helps.

I plan to be back to blogging more soon. Morning sickness and tiredness and mind numbing lameness has taken over for the time being. I'm 11 weeks on Friday! Yowsa!

Happy Birthday Elise! Seems like yesterday she was a newborn.

I hope the walk goes well on Saturday. I am still planning on donating a baby blanket. I will go plug this on my site right now. I don't have a full picture of the blanket, because I didn't take one. Then I gave that one away for an emergency baby gift. Now I'm whipping up another one just like it. (Or I have a girlie one done, should the winner so choose.) I should have it done soon!

Happy birthday to a beautiful girl!
I hope that your walk went well today. I did make a donation and hope that I'm not too late to be in the running for your gorgeous blankets! Either way, it goes to a great cause.

I'm sure Elise had a great birthday. She's beautiful. You have a nice blog. I just ran across it. I recently started a similar one for my son Charles. You're doing a great job with your girls.
