Marching

This weekend was the March of Dimes' March for Babies.   Team DEFKAHN 3 raised over $1500! Woohoo!!  A big thanks to everyone who supported us.

The boys had a big time (cookies on the wagon ride and Cheetos for lunch), and Cooper met his twin.  Not talking about Zach and Charlie....

Meet Cooper's doppelganger, Liam:




After the walk, the boys were chasing each other around a concrete column (trying to turn into melted butter, presumably), when out of the blue, Liam (who we'd never seen before) joined the gang.  Like he had known us forever.   Rather, like he had known Cooper forever.  They hugged each other and shared chips and a similar passion for running in circles.  Cooper and Liam were the same size and could look each other in the eyes.  It's tough when you are almost 3 and can still wear size 18 month pants.  I think they bonded for life.

I spotted Liam's dad standing nearby.  He was just as amused as we were.    Turns out Liam was also a 24- weeker, born about a year before the boys.  I hope we see more of Mr. Liam.

Here's my favorite picture from the weekend:
Six miracles: Liam, Charlie, Cooper, Hobson, Zach, and Aaron.  Hobson and Aaron were in the NICU at the same time as our boys.  They're twins, born at 26 weeks.  These little guys are going to buddies for a long, long time. 

And don't you love how they are all chugging water.  Takes a lot out of a guy to sit in a wagon for 3.5 miles.
