Our's was direct deposited today. It was exactly what I was expecting. I am married, filed jointly, and we received $2700.
Evan was about 6 lbs 3 oz when he finally came home. He had a Chicco Keyfit. LOVED that seat!! I wish I had with my older children because it was such a great seat.
We just have one doggie right now. We adopted her from our local Animal Shelter about a month ago. She fits in with our family so well. I love that she is so loving and happy. I love having her sleep at the foot of my bed at night. I just love almost everything about her!! Here she is, Molly Rose! http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21...Cher/Molly.jpg
Here's mine. Even after seven kids, I still love names! One of these days I'm going to have to start naming plants or something. LOL http://www.babynames.com/namelist/9577187

My son was born at 30 weeks last December. He was offered his first bottle at around 33 weeks, IIRC. Feeding was our biggest challenge and it kept us there for much longer than I thought we needed to be. We were discharged at 37+ weeks, I forget the actual dates, but we were there 45 days. I'm glad your neo changed the orders. And do NOT feel badly if you have to report a nurse. We had one in particular that was tremendously terrible and we eventually asked that...
Here is Evan's first pic shortly after he was born. He was 3 lbs 12 oz http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21...r/DSC_7683.jpg When he went back on the vent for the second time http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21.../ventagain.jpg His First Christmas in the NICU http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21...ychristmas.jpg His First Day home http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21...Cher/evan1.jpg And most recently, my little...
Yes, it is bothersome to me to hear people refer to 37 weekers as preemies. I have had 3 babies arrive at 37 weeks, one at 35 weeks, and one at 30. I honestly remember being horribly upset over the 35 weeker and it was awful at the time. However, once Evan was born and spent nearly 7 weeks in the NICU, I realized that 35 weeks was a walk in the park. No vents, no CPAP, no umbilical line.
Best wishes to her family! I do wonder how a baby born nearly 3 months premature could weigh 5 pounds though. Evan was 2 months early and they thought he was huge at 3 lbs, 12 oz.

It's that those are the least expensive foods that provide a high concentration of protein, calcium, and iron. The funds available to WIC are capped. The milk has to be paid for...
