Sorry the posts have been less regular. Things have been CUH-RAZY!
Robbie passed his car seat test yesterday with flying colors.
Today he had his pictures taken, which I'd love to post but I can't seem to get the growing family website to load tonight. We had a ton of visitors today. I felt kind of bad for the family of the baby next to us because we had a lot of people in and out. I did apologize and they seemed okay about it, laughing about Robbie being so popular. Just a side effect of living in the NICU for 3 months and being so darned adorable!
I had to learn to work his home heart monitor and tonight David and I took infant CPR.
We're rooming in- staying at the hospital. As I type, I'm sitting in my pajamas with my son asleep about 4' to my left.
Correction, He's now asleep on my chest. Life is good.
Tomorrow we head home.
It was a bittersweet day, really. While I'll love having Robbie at home, I'll miss all (well, okay- most) of the NICU staff and other parents. It's a very social environment. It was evidenced by all the people coming in to say goodbye today.
I even braved the ICU portion to tell a few people good-bye. Ran into one of the neonatologists (the one who thought I had PPD because I was crying when I had to go back to work) and he just seemed so genuinely excited that Robbie was getting to go home. I made lots of promises to visit and send pictures.
I tried to take a bunch of pictures, so you get some bonuses!
Hope you enjoy-
Remember THIS snuggli?
