We didn't have many visitors during our hospital stint. In fact, with family out of town, it came down to our favorite Sheriff and his caregiver for the week, my mom.
But with a baby in the NICU, worry on our hearts, and unclear sense of the future, it seems that two-year-olds know best how to keep everyone positive and full of life.
Appreciate the little things:
Although W couldn't meet his little brother, we decided to give him the present from John on one of his first visits. He was so excited to receive the Sky Predators that he couldn't stop looking at them long enough to "cheese" for the camera.
Build each other up:
We all needed his incessant requests for Daddy to wear the surgical cap and mask to match his own new dress-up accessory. We couldn't help but smile with that face!
Each day is full of small miracles:
Perhaps it's seeing your favorite helicopter. Maybe it's an ice cream date by the fountain with Daddy.
Thanks for being our Sheriff, kiddo, and bringing joy and love to our hospital stay!
