Magdalena's Feet

I met the Robert's Family a little over a year ago but never got the chance to meet their sweet Magdalena. Julie was scheduled to speak at my March for Babies kickoff lunch on a Thursday in January but the Tuesday before sweet Magdalena went to be with Jesus. Her funeral was held the very hour of our luncheon and Julie had a good friend come to replace her to speak about the Life of Magdalena.

They have become great friends and volunteers of the March of Dimes since the day they discovered their daughter would be born with Edwards Syndrome (Trisomy 18). In 2009 Magdalena's Feet team raised over $17,000 for March for Babies and are on track to do the same in 2010. BUT....they need your help!

Southern Belle designed a shirt for them to sell as a fundraiser and they want to sell as many as possible. Please leave a comment if you would like a shirt. And....go to for more of their story...Her version is much better than mine

In just a few days Banks will be 1 month old...He is the sweetest, most laid back baby. Not at all the strong willed child that his NICU nurse said he was....He only hates cold wipes :) Banks is a good sleeper and an even better eater. He has been eating 3 oz ever 3-4 hours since he has been home..I can't wait to weigh him again because I am sure he is almost 7lbs now. We spent a few days in Glen Allen last week with my parents...Grant needed some farm time and Mark and I went to a crawfish party at the lake.

I can't wait to watch my boys grow up together. I hope they are close to each other and play like best friends.

Grant will start his first Sport in April...We are excited about Start Smart Baseball...and can't wait for soccer next fall!!!
