in case you haven't heard about it, holly over at Phemomenon is doing a wonderful blog event--Blog For Babies by Making Little Wonders. here is a bit from her blog that will clue you in to her amazing journey as mother to her baby, Cole.
What some of you may not know about me is that I have been homebound since November 8, 2007. We have been in quarantine (and still are until at least May 1st).
Early last October I was 7 months pregnant with our second child. Another boy (heaven help me!). Roughly 8 weeks before my due date I started getting really sick. I was sick the entire pregnancy anyway, but this was different. This wasn’t normal, and it was intensely more painful. What I didn’t know at the time was that I had an uncommon form of pre-eclampsia in pregnancy - my body was giving up. Doctors don’t know what causes this or how it happens. I went for some tests to find out what was wrong and about two hours later Cole was here. All 3 lbs 6 oz of him. He was okay, but he was very small and underdeveloped for how far along I was.
her blog event asks us to make something little. something to honor the little ones among us who have a rough start in life. go to her blog for lots more info.
the idea is for her to gain sponsors for the March for Babies, which is happening soon. here is the link to her March of Dimes page
where you can sponsor her. she also is trying to just raise awareness of the event.
in addition, holly is looking for donations of prizes that she can giveaway. though i am unable to do the event this month, i have given a prize for her to give away. it's a onesie. for those of you who don't know about my clothing line. hit my website--bubbleandsqueak.biz.
and go over and visit holly! give her some love!
