Today was the NICU reunion held at the downtown Marriott. It was a lot of fun. I did not know what to expect. It was great seeing so many familiar faces. We talked with a lot of nurses that remembered us, as well as Dr. Anderson, Dr. Carr and Dr. Heimes. Dr.Anderson thought she looked great!! Sandy, one of our primary nurses was there! I was able to take a picture of Sandy and her "peanut" (she always called Ella "peanut"). Ella wore her special Cora dress and looked so cute! They had cookies and lemonade, and then fun activities for kids. Carter LOVED the huge snake, large turtle and tiny alligator-and yes, he touched all three! They also had face painting, a bounce house, coloring and crafts. They also took group pictures by year, so we stood with the other babies born so far in 2010 that have been in the NICU. It was fun to see some of the moms I remembered again.
It is fun thinking of next year...Ella will be a big girl wanting to go in the bounce house, too. :)
