welcome home Davy


She's home. There were no tearful hugs goodbye, It was more like a C-YA. I felt like I was about to ride on a big roller coaster, scared and excited all at the same time. Luckily I have the best partner in the world. Scott has been amazing. He has been able to retain all that's been told to us by the Doctors, he's helped work on a Meds/feed/pump schedule for me and through it all he has been calm. I admit i kinda lost it the first night, not the curl up in the fetal position lose it, more like the stare out the window and cry kind. But he has been a rock, my rock. So the first couple of days? I would say it's been the hardest thing I have done......ever. But before you give me the positive "you can do it Ruth speech", I know this is the first couple of days and eventually this will become "my" normal, I know this.

p.s. i love scott's team davy shirt!

Heather said...

I love the 'Team Davy' shirt that Scott is wearing! It's so cute! Do the boys have one to? That would be really super cute. And Davy looked kinda happy in the car seat... that is until you probably strapped her in. Then... she didn't look so happy. lol I hope you guys have a lot of fun with your little girl! They are a WHOLE different kind of being. But they sure are a lot of FUN!

i want your green skirt. i think every mom no matter what the case needs a you can do this pep talk when bringing a baby home at least i do...

Susie Demke said...

Well then in that case, I have that same shirt you have on but it looks better on you cuz all they had left at my store was a XL so I bought it and it looks like a tent on me. Not that I'm tiny or anything, I'm not, I'm a good solid L but you know, not the best fit but it was on sale... Green is definitely in your color wheel or season. And I can't wait to see you and watch a bad movie or something.

What a great post Ruth.....I am so happy that you have sweet Davy girl at home now. And how wonderful that you have a supportive, loving, rock of a husband to share this with! The pictures are beautiful.....and you all look amazing in green!

Excellent. All is as it should be.

And yes June, Davy is the cutest. Her eyes are electric. And her car seat is cool. Violet has the same one.

And please tell Scott that he rocks gray hair so well. I can't wait for Ethan to get more gray hairs. It's so debonair.
