CPR Certified!

Alex and I are officially certified in infant CPR.  We took a great 2 hour class last night to learn all about infant CPR.

I'm so glad we took it - even though it was a bit last minute!  Our instructor was fun and lively and we got to use those little dolls that are made for CPR training.

We also found out that here in Houston (and I'm pretty sure all of Texas), in order for a baby to be released from the NICU, both parents must be certified in infant CPR.  While we are praying that Kate doesn't spend any time in the NICU, I am glad that we are covered in the event that she does. 

There were several couples in the class that had babies in the NICU and had to squeeze in a 2 hour class so that their baby could come home.  That sounds way too stressful to me!

We got a great book out of the class that we will have Mimi (my mom) and Cici (my MIL) review when they are out here helping so that everyone taking care of sweet Kate knows what to do in case of an emergency.

When we left the class Alex admitted that he is nervous about everything that is about to happen.  I asked if he was nervous about the c-section, having a baby, changing diapers, holding her, or what.

And his answer was "Um, all of that."

At least he is honest!  I think the class made everything sink in for him!

On a different note, 6 days!!
