Cooper the Trooper

Cooper is just truckin' along. He is doing really good, and just keeps growing. He actually FITS into preemie clothes now, and I imagine that he won't for long at the rate he is going.
He has has a pretty special week. Not only did he get to meet some of his extended family, but he got to meet his great-grandmother {my dad's mom} - AND his nana and papa got to hold him...
Here are a few pictures of his week...
The nurses gave him a Mohawk!

Coop currently weighs 4 pounds 12.8 ounces and is eating well . He takes about 3 or 4 bottles a day and most of the time he will take all or most of it. It seems he is getting better at it by the day. He may even try to nurse soon!

He also had his 2 month shots this week. {YAY!} they think that he might have not felt great after them because he was having a few episodes of A's & B'a {Apnea's and Bradycardias}. I have not heard today, but they expected them to subside quickly.


Keep praying for Cooper's friend, M. She was having a little trouble getting her breathing down after her surgery, but it looks as though things are looking up for her. I did hear that she had a little poopy {YAY!!!} and they have started her back on milk to see if she will tolerate it. Keep her and her mama and daddy in your prayers.

Keep praying that Coop continues to improve. Pray that the A's and B's will stop and Coop feels better after his shots. He needs to also get better at feeding from a bottle. And of course that he stays well.

  1. Dear Baby Cooper,
    It was so wonderful for Grandmother, Aunt Net, Aunt Deb, and Uncle G to meet you today. You are a pretty handsome young man. I especially like the turf you are wearing on the top of that head of yours. You are an amazing young man! Be sweet to the nurses and the other kiddos in your room, do your business, and take deep breaths. You are growing like a weed! Love you, Aunt Deb and Uncle G
