March For Babies 2013- Leaping Liam

This past weekend was the 2013 March of Babies event for the New Orleans area.  Last year we had a great time at the walk and we were very excited to do it again.  I'm so happy that Team Leaping Liam raised $2,875 for the March for Babies this year!  I couldn't do it without my incredible family and fantastic friends so THANK YOU!  We raised over $1,000 more than last year which I didn't think was possible.  I'm overwhelmed with the generosity of those who donated.

The morning of the walk was actually chilly.  The weather in New Orleans is so unpredictable so we layered up and I actually had a cute purple beanie that Liam sported to keep his little head warm.  Our adorable "Leaping Liam" shirts were worn to show everyone who we were walking for.

I was so happy to see many of my preemie friends at the walk.  I've met some fabulous women through our preemie bond and I just love catching up with them and seeing their adorable babies.  A lot of EJ nurses were there as well and I adore seeing the ladies who assisted in turning a 15oz micropreemie into a now 18 month toddler.  Seeing the nurses will never get old as they hold a special place in my heart.

Till next year!
