This is why we walk


Tomorrow is the Children's Hospital of Illinois' NICU Small Wonders Walk. It's not too late to support the NICU on behalf of Adam and Sara. If you are new to my blog, read my previous post about why our family supports the NICU so passionately.

Here is the link if you would like more information or are interested in donating.

Out of the mouths...

Shannon recounted a conversation he heard over the monitor yesterday afternoon while I was at work. I was amazed and thought I would share.

Sara started stirring from her nap. He heard Adam say, "It's okay, Sara, I'm here." When that didn't bring the comfort she desired, she complained a little louder. Adam announced, "Mom, we need you - Sara's upset!"

I love how he looks out after his "little" sister.
