Thanks for all the advice girls! They kind of showed us yesterday how to prick the heel, but they didn’t show us the card yet (they use the vile at the office and not the cards b/c they just send the vile to the lab downstairs). Next month they will tell us how to do the card so I’m sure we’ll get all of the details. Thanks for the input on what type of needle to use Bre. I’ll be sure to keep that in mind…the less pain for my baby the better! This is totally just a side note, but Ashley was the cutest little sunflower ever tonight for halloween . Wish you all could’ve seen her!
