When Max & Ollie met Davy


The Boys finally got to meet their little sister. We took them last week before her surgery. First we met with a family councilor, who explained what they were gonna see. They also could ask any questions. Of course there were many. Max asked really good ones like. "What is our main concern with our sister today?" At the time it was her tummy and her surgery. Ollie asked "What happens when she has a cold? will she eat her boogers?"
When we first walked in, Ollie was so concerned. He asked if he could touch her. He had his hand on her the whole time. He really wanted to hold her, but we told it him it's too hard with all her IVs. Max was enthralled by all the machines and wanted to know about all the meds she was getting and why.




In case your wondering we are short one child... Harper. I kept having these visions of bringing him and him pulling wires and being taking out of the NICU screaming. So Harper will have to wait to meet Baby sister.........I don't think he minds.

** Thanks Heather & Pierre for our cool big brother shirts.**

Glad to hear it went well. The boys look so concerned in the pictures.

BTW, you look fantastic. No one would know you just had a baby.

If SHE can figure it out.......... said...

I don't know you, but I love your blog - your little Davy is so precious. She's been through so much, so quickly. Thank God for modern medicine. I will be putting you on my prayer list. God Bless your family.

Hey Ruth- That was a very sweet post. thanks for the pics and letting us feel involved. I love how deep in thought your boys are. I love their questions and they they got to ask ANYTHING they wanted. I just want to know what the counselors response was to the boogers. Anyway, you opened the tears with that one. What a sweet day..

I think your oldest looks like you Ruth!! What handsome boys you have,and from the concern on their faces you can tell that Davy has two very protective BIG BROTHERS!!! I love the picture of your family with Davy minus one of your boys, so thoughtful and precious. Your family is in our prayers.

Beautiful pictures Ruth. I think a lot of people will be inspired by little Davy. She has already touched so many people and she's not even a month old!

Flora said...

Don't know you, but I have you and your precious Davy on my prayers everytime I remember.

This is so cute and it totally reminds me of when my brother was born...he's the youngest: 3 girls and a boy. anyway, he was really sick and had all of these issues, needed and had surgery, was in the hospital. I was only 5 but I remember we couldn't go to see him in the hospital. It all went by so fast though and before we knew it, he was home with us.
