Yesterday was a very busy, busy day not only for James and I but for Phoebe and Piper too! Not only do Piper and Phoebe have a check list of things they must do/accomplish before they can go home but James and I have a long list too. I am happy to say that as of yesterday James and I finished watching all the necessary videos (infant CPR, swaddle bath, back to sleep, car seat safety, and NICU baby release) and we helped our nurse give Piper her very first bath.
Since Piper and Phoebe are preemies, CHOC teaches parents how to give their babies swaddle baths. Piper was so calm and content during the bath. It was so nice. She even had a nice heat lamp over her to keep her warm. I wanted to take the heat lamp home with me because it felt so good. If anyone knows James, they know he LOVES the air conditioning. I am always FREEZING at home so a heat lamp would come in handy. :-)
