Best Valentine's EVER






Today I got to hold my baby for hours. It was wonderful!!!! He was awake for the first hour or so and he was really alert, looking right into our eyes. He snoozed the rest of the time. I can't think of a better Valentine's gift. This has been the best Valentine's ever- Davis has added so much more love to our lives. 

He also got his first sponge bath today. Nurse Yvette (one of Davis' primary night nurses) decided it was time that Davis cleaned up a bit. He likes to stay up late and hang out with Yvette... she's teaching him how to talk like a New Yorker. 

Hopefully Michael will get to hold Davis tomorrow. Because he's got so many wires and tubes, etc, it's kindof an ordeal to move him from his isolette. Once you hold him, you have to hold him for a while (oh darn!), otherwise Michael definitely would have held him today. 

This has been such an amazing day....

So great to see Davis doing so well, and I know he will continue to do so now that mommy and daddy get to hold and love him. Will continue to pray that soon you all will be home and starting to get things back to normal. Lots of love to you all.

Yay!!!!!! The pictures we've been waiting for. The picture of him staring at Carolyn is great. It's an amazing moment for sure. Just think, pretty soon, you'll be able to hold him and walk around your house whenever you want to :) I can't begin to explain to you how happy we are for you guys.

Happy Valentine's Day to the Ashworth family! Look at you Mom & Dad! Davis's eyes say "it is about time you guys - I knew I needed a bath but really!" He is just the most handsome (besides you Michael) young fellow I have ever seen! You, both as parents, bring such strength to Davis and he is quite the fighter! I love all of you and can hardly wait till he becomes my newest office mate! There is power in prayer!
