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!
