Well, today was our first day actually traveling to the nicu and seeing the girls. I am still healing and trying to get used to being at home. It was amazing to be at home with Aubrey last night. I was only away for a week and a half and it seems as if she grew by leaps and bounds since I was last at home. I called the NICU twice last night to check in on the girls - I had a hard time with knowing that I couldn't just wake up and go downstairs to check in on them at anytime. The nurses were very understanding.
Anyway, today was an amazing visit. We got to the NICU and both girls were doing great! They had really good nights. Reagan is no longer under the billi light for jaundice but we were told that she would probably end up going back on because that is typical behavior for preemies. She has been off of blood pressure medicine for a day now. So, today the nurse asked us which one of us would like to change Reagan's diaper - Seth quickly responded - "Leslie does!" So, I started on one of the most exciting and yet scariest moments of my life! Here is a picture of the first diaper change along with a new picture of Reagan. She is still on the CPAP machine but the nurse was doing her assessments when we took the picture. I think she looks like a miniature version of Seth!
Cameron is doing well. She is under the billi light still but her levels are getting lower. I like to call it her tanning bed. Today Seth and I sat just staring at her for the longest time and watched her stretch and move. She was so funny with her mask that she has to wear to cover her eyes. She loves to grab onto it and move it all around. She has had a much more uneventful day than yesterday - yesterday she had to have a PICC line put into her arm and the day before she had to have her breathing tube put back in. So, today she was just relaxing under the light. She is on less blood pressure medicine and her oxygen levels are great. Today she opened her eyes so big and we tried to get a picture of it but we couldn't get it in time. She does not appear to have a heart murmur (called a PDA). Reagan does right now but they are watching it. Here are a few pictures of Cameron - one under the billi light and the other is some shots she took while posing for her daddy!
