Packing for Isabel
Because the time is near (we induce Monday) I decided to make sure we have everything packed for the hospital. Packing for Mark and I was easy. Packing for Isabel is a little more tough. Apparently, Isabel might be a big girl, which is something we didn't expect when we got the diagnoses last July. According to the measurements the doctor did last Friday, Isabel now has the body of a 7.5 pound baby and she could gain as much as a pound by time she is born. Newborn clothes go up to 8 pounds. So, Mark and I have packed little clothes, and some not as little clothes for her. Then, because we are taking all the stuff we need to make permanent memories with her, she now has a bag as big as mommy and daddy do, and we are packed in one bag! I knew babies needed a lot of stuff, but we are going to look like we are moving into the hospital! I guess the whole stereotype that girls need a lot of stuff is all true. Oh, well.
