Anybody Want to Buy a Highlander?

Today I went to go and buy a used snap n' go stroller and got some other baby stuff and boy did I forget how much room baby stuff takes!!! It was then that I finally made peace with the idea that yes, we must have a van! The dreaded van that I always swore that I would NEVER drive! So, if anybody wants to buy a Toyota Highlander that our family outgrew in less than a year - let me know!

I didn't go to the hospital today until late because my best friend, Emily, had a baby today!!! Yeah, Tommy was born today at 2:23 - and he is oh so cute! I am so excited for her and her husband! I never realized how big a full term baby would look in comparison to my girls, though. It was quite a reality check! Anyway, Reagan got blood today and yes, she was very cranky! She did still gain weigh today, though, and for that I am thankful. She ate very well tonight - 30mLs! and then she took a quick nap on Mommy. Cameron also had a great day but got a little too excited and used the bathroom all over her isolette - so, she had to have everything cleaned...including herself - which completely wore her out for my visit tonight. But she looked very peaceful afterward! Cameron also gained weight - she is now 2 lbs. 12 oz. The doctor called and told me that they hope that this will be the last transfusion for Reagan and hopefully Cameron will not need anymore. Even though Reagan's body wasn't making red blood cells efficiently enough, Cameron's has begun to make them pretty well - so they are hopeful that we are done with the transfusions for the rest of our stay!


  1. Love the minivan... you will too! Look at all the cool people at church that drive one;-)! I am amazed by your little troopers and can't wait to meet them!

  2. I have to admit, I really enjoy my minivan too! I was NEVER going to drive a minivan, but there is NO way that anything else will do, just can't cram that much stuff in an SUV unless it's a suburban, and that just sucks too much gas! The minivan is the way to go! Good luck with that! And yes, I certainly do not feel cool at all, but hey, let's face it, I have 3 kids, coolness is not at the top of my list any more! :) Comfort and ease are! I am so happy to hear that your girls are doing so well and will probably not need any more blood transfusions, I'll add that to my prayers for them! They seem to be doing so good! I am so happy for ya'll! God is good! Take care and praying for you every day! Love ya'll!
