It's hard to believe that this is what Natalie once endured! I memorized everything about that adorable little face. I remember thinking at one point that I needed to burn it into my brain in case anything happened to her. It's a horrible thing to think, but it's reality when your baby is in the NICU! So here is the requested info about our March of Dimes March for Babies walk in Minot. If you can join us for the walk, we'd love to have you here. Let me know so I can get a team shirt for you! And, if you can, please help us reach our goal of $3000 as a team. You can visit the link below and donate with credit card or check. It's really easy and also secure. And like I said on Natalie's CaringBridge site, no donation is too small. Anything you can contribute is very much appreciated! Thanks from the three of us!

He just needs the little hat to complete the picture. This picture on the left was taken as we met the newest member of the Lori Olson family--Abby the cat (below).
Natalie loves cats, and they seem to love her; but since Perry is allergic to cats, it's nice that Grandma and Grandpa Olson have cats at their place! Abby reminds me of my cat when I was a child, Butterscotch.
Natalie's working hard to learn how to eat from a spoon! For the past few days she's done really well with minimal gagging!
In other exciting news, we have been named the ambassador family in Minot for this year's March of Dimes March for Babies walk, which is April 4th. I'll have details later on how you can help us raise money...we're hoping to raise $3000 this year as a team. I know we can do it! The gender poll ended in a tie...6 for boy and 6 for girl (2 Dolphins). I had a feeling that would happen!
