March of Dimes Luncheon

We had fun. Aerin decided to feed me pieces of bread just as Lisa Schaffner asked me what her name was. We met a 24-weeker (now 1 year adjusted), which is always exciting. Baby Julia is the first white 24-weeker I've ever met (black preemies do much better - I know several black 24-weekers and even two black 23.5-weeker girls), which shows how rapidly neonatal technology is advancing. It was the first time Miss Sarah and Miss Jamie have seen Aerin since before her surgery and growth spurt and they were amazed at her two shoulders and her height.

Aerin is now 37 inches tall and weights 29 pounds! Clothes shopping for her has become much more of a challenge.

Tomorrow is Lobby Day.

Busy Month

Aerin is getting over a cold, but she did watch the first half of the Super Bowl. She really watches football, which I find hilarious and awesome. The only other thing she watches is Peep and the Big Wide World.

We have a very busy month. In addition to Eema & Me and Gymsters, Aerin and I will be going to the Virginia General Assembly to lobby for the March of Dimes. We also have several events to plan for the March of Dimes March for Babies (formerly WalkAmerica) in April. The entire family will be taking a trip to D.C. to visit friends and Aerin has a Feeding Clinic appointments.
