Cribs and saving babies

Okay, I wrote about saving the Harp Seal Pups, now I'm going to write about saving the Human Pups. You see, each year there are many premature babies born and not all of them make it. The March for Babies, previously known as the March for Dimes, has set out to raise money for research to help give babies the healthiest possible start before they're even born. Their goal is to lower the number of premature babies born through education and adequate health care. In an ideal world, all babies would make it to full term and be happy and healthy. Let's work to get there!

That being said, every year people all over the country join the March for Babies. I did it a few times in high school and am now taking it back up. Our local March for Babies is this Saturday, Apeil 5th. I know it's late notice, but if you're willing, I could really use your support (and sponsorship). This march is a fundraiser and fundraisers only work if we're able to raise funds! I'm here to ask you to visit my March for Babies personal site, take a look around and if you feel like contributing, go ahead and do so. I've already sponsored a few friends, so I know the site is easy to navigate and the sponsorship process is fairly easy and painless. Really, when we're talking about babies, is $10 too much?

Now that I've tugged on your heart strings a bit, I'll leave you to it.

In Lily news, we got her to sleep in her crib for about 3 hours last night. That's the first time she's slept more than 15 minutes in her crib. Of course she was totally passed out when we laid her in there, but it's a start. I was going to take pictures but I had a feeling that it would wake her up, so maybe I'll take some another time. ;D
