"did i mention he was cute?"

that was the text update I got from Karen today.... "He's awesome and cute"

I am so excited to be able to keep posting good news! Cooper is doing great and keeps on being the trooper that he is!

He is up to 4 pounds 9.3 ounces, and eating well from a bottle. He has moved into a big boy bed, and is still doing great on the nasal cannula!! I tell you, he is just amazing!

A few pictures for your viewing pleasure...

That last picture, he is smiling at his favorite aunt! {ME... kendra....} :-)


Coopers friend, M as I mentioned before had her surgery. She is still currently on the vent, but they are slowly weening her off. She will probably be on it another day or two, then they will try the CPAP. They are also going to check and see if her PDA (that extra vessel) has closed. Pray her breathing gets stronger, her PDA is closed and that when they do try to give her food again, that she will accept it well.

Keep praying for Coop and that he continues to get stronger. Pray for his bottle feeding that it improves everyday!

Keep praying for K&J too. Although things are good, they are still tired. Their life is home to hospital to home... They don't have a lot of free time and I know they are weary and tired.


  1. Open bed swaddled is such a huge thing, way to go Cooper!

  2. I saw one proud papa today when showing off his iphone picture of him holding Cooper! Priceless!
