Information for Volunteers

Many of you have asked what we need and how you can help. So, at long last, we have an easy way for you to volunteer. Here's a Web site that we've set up to manage our volunteers. Right now our only request is for meals after the babies come, but we'll be adding more to it once the babies arrive and we know better what our needs are.

If you'd like to volunteer, please visit: and sign in. You'll find a calendar with requests for help on it, so you can choose to help whenever it's convenient for you. Let me say in advance how much we appreciate each of our volunteers!

A number of you have also asked if we still need anything. We are still looking for the following:

* car seat covers - the warm winter kind
* Diaper Champ
* crib sheets
* flat or fitted mattress pads

Or, you can always donate diapers to the cause. As the babies are already 4 lbs. each, we won't need many preemie diapers, so I would suggest newborn or size 1 diapers. We won't be picky, believe me, but Pampers Swaddlers are great for little ones.

Dear Christy, Jeff, and Amelia,

Even though I haven't sent you many notes, I have faithfully read the blog at least 5 times a week. What an adventure for your family!!

I didn't get in on the "Name Game." But I have had my code names for the little ones for some time. I realize that you can't name them Butter, Milk, and Cream. So, I am included some names in this email too.

You asked for us to guess the date and weight, so I thought it was my turn to be adventurous. :>)

Alise ( A-leese) Christine will weigh 4 lbs. 11 ounces and will be born on September 20.

Jace (Combo of Jeff and Christy, it's one syllable-like Mace with a J) Christian will weigh 5 lbs. 3 ounces and will be born on September 20

Marleese (a take on Mary and Alice) Karon (okay, it's my middle name- I had to get it in there some way!) will be born on Spetember 21 at 12:03 am. (Well, it could happen) and will weigh 5 lbs even.

Whew! That took a lot of brain power. But not near as much work as it will be for you to finish incubating and delivering the babies.

I hope that my post has you smiling.

Here's an electronic hug {} from me. This week I will be in Indy, hopefully there will be time to call.
