"The Car Seat Test", and other photos

Hi again,

I just checked out of the Beacon House. It was pretty emotional, actually. Yeah, I cried. And hugged the manager. I don't know what we would've done without that place. It's been our home for 3 months. It felt so great to leave it though. Wow.
I'm in the OB waiting room right now, waiting for the rooming-in room to finish being cleaned. I have my computer now, so hopefully I can get some photos up.

This is Willow as she began the "car seat test". For this test, they put the baby in the car seat for at least as long as their drive home is. They will hook Willow up to the monitors and she can't have any apneas, bradys, or desatting episodes. Otherwise she fails! So right now I'm not sure if it's over or not, or if she passed. I hope she did. Doesn't she look like a big girl in the car seat!



















Here's some of me and Lauren, and Willow and Ellen. We're definitely keeping in touch with these guys. They've become friends. Someday Willow and Ellen will laugh at these photos.

















Well, better go. Time to move in!
