DAY 102.

I have to put the day in the title because I am running out of catchy phrases to use.... But can you believe that it has been over 100 days? I remember baby Cooper's BIRTHday like it was yesterday. Everything from the very first text message at 7 in the morning to leaving the hospital at 2 AM the next morning. It was a day I don't think I'll ever forget.

As for an update on Coop... he is still doing great! He has reached 8 pounds and has been breathing TOTALLY on his on for the past 3 days!

He is currently taking 2 bottles a day... when that gets up to ALL bottles, sweet Cooper will be ready to go home! His nursery is almost ready for him! {although, I'm sure he'll be sleeping in mom and dads room for a while!}.

OH! And if you're not a "fan" of Cooper's on facebook...
"Swallow test went really well. He didn't aspirate any of it. They are feeding him now with a slow flow nipple and they thickened the milk. He's tired from the test so it's going slow, but it's going. They will start with 3 times a day and go from there. "

A FEW PICS for your viewing pleasure...


PRAY BIG that Cooper will catch on to the bottles QUICKLY! As soon as he does this, HE GETS TO GO HOME!!!

Pray that J&K continue to have patience while they are waiting to take Coop home, and that they are well rested each day.
