Daddy's girl

It's official, Davy is already a Daddy's girl. Her face lights up when he is holding her. I mean she did smile at him first. Last week when the endocrine Doctor was trying to explain all of Davy's issues to us, Scott could barely pay attention, because Davy kept cooing and smiling at him. He didn't know where to look, smiling baby or serious Doctor( baby won.)
Scott and I have been splitting up the time at the hospital with her now. I go all day and he goes at night. It was becoming exhausting for me to be there all day and night. So this way he gets some one on one time and I get some rest. All the nurses say how cute it is that every single night Scott is there holding Davy. And when Davy was really sick and she couldn't be held, he would go and hold her hand or pacifier. I guess Dads don't come that often to the NICU, especially by themselves. If the nurses were smart, they would hang out right outside our room, cuz they may hear Scott singing some made up lullabies about Davy. Who knows, maybe a future Yo-gg song is being sung.

Ruth....all the pictures are so great, but the one of Scott holding Davy, and she is looking up at him needs to be in a frame. Its beautiful.....it sums up how Dads feel about daughters! And how daughters feel about Dads! It is a bond like no other.

SO PRECIOUS! Those are some great pictures! You can see so much in Scott's eyes. It's so great to see her off of some tubes too. Baby steps, literally. I love how you've documented it all. It's so well put and positive - even the not so good news. Love it. So faithful.
Faith moves mountains, right?

Hello to all!! I am thrilled to hear that little cutie face Davy Jean did not have to endure another surgery. As Scott can attest, he broke my hear on a nightly basis when he would come to the NICU and hold her, and gaze into her eyes. I miss seeing her beautiful face on my night shifts; I hope you can come back "home" soon. Please give her a big squeeze from her night shift nurse!
