Since you asked...

I feel a little funny posting this, but since so many of you have asked what you can do to help, I thought I'd just put this out there.  What we seem to need the most these days are gas cards.  With gas prices the way they are and having a 40-mile commute (each way) to the hospital, John has figured out that it costs us $15 for each trip into town to see sweet Becca.  Of course, she's totally worth it, but it's adding up!  Really, Becca won't need baby clothes, toys, or equipment for quite some time, so if you want to skip those darling pink dresses and send gift cards to Shell, Mapco, or BP, it would help our family a lot.  We'll let you know when she's ready for those ridiculously adorable baby girl clothes (I'm looking forward to those days!), but for now, she's rockin' out in her tiny diaper.  Sorry for the, um, forward nature of this post, but what else do you expect from me?  :)

  4. Thanks for the info. When you're ready I know where there are some preemie clothes. Ben wore them for a while and we passed most of them on to The Don Petty & Rachel Patman for their daughter Anna who was born early as well. I know you are all doing all that you can. If you need any encouragement, let us know. We're great cheerleaders and remember well having to pump in the hospital (though I only had to do it a couple of days). You're amazing Nancy doing all that you can for your beautiful baby girl Becca. John you're awesome too getting up and doing your part. You make a terrific team! You're great parents. Love, Christie, Josh, Ben & Ellie
