Davy's first bath

Well it's Davy's first bath by mommy and daddy anyways. When Davy's nurse asked us last Sunday if we wanted to bathe her, we were so excited. You would have thought it was Christmas. It made me realize how the little things in life we can easily take for granted......... like giving your baby a bath. Do you want to know the best part? For 15 minutes she wasn't hooked up to wires and monitors. We bathed her, wrapped her up, then I hugged her tight and danced around the room with her. Scott was laughing at me cuz I walked every inch of that room, doing spins and a couple of bounces here and there. I couldn't help myself, she was WIRE FREE!! And that's why they call the NICU, the "NICU roller coaster". There are times when you are so low (tuesday)and then times when you feel so high. This day was a definite high.

I love it. And I love that you were dancing around the room. That was a great image in my head. Love that Davy girl! I got a little choked up, I'll be honest. Um, I think I get choked up with almost every post you do.
