December 8, 2009

We brought Cooper home from the nicu! Exactly one year ago today, our 13.5 week (7.5 weeks for me, 6 weeks for him) hospital vacation came to an end!
Our house has never been the same...and, we've never been so happy and blessed!
The sign that we made him for his homecoming!
Me bringing him into the house for the first time~ I know this is a special moment for every parent but I think it was even more special for us because of everything that we had been through to get to this moment. This day will always stand out in my mind has one of my happiest days ever...

Cooper meeting his crib for the first time. No worries, he never slept in the crib with any of those stuffed animals.


  1. A year goes by quickly, huh??!? That must have been such an awesome moment for you to bring him home - what a blessing! Can't believe how much he's grown between this picture and now!

  2. Congratulations! That is so exciting, and I'll bet that this past year has been one of the best years of your life! :)

  3. Look how tiny he was! What a special day to remember. :o)

  4. He was so itty-itty-bitty! :)

  5. Gosh, he was so teeny!!! Funny...that reminds me a lot of the nursery right now---lots of frogs for Luke and I bought that sweet little puppy outfit (in several sizes!) for Matthew...I love the picture of you bringing him in the house--you look pretty darned fabulous for just having a baby!!!

  6. You're too sweet, Lori! In all fairness though, I was about 6 weeks out from having him at this point :) I haven't lost any of it since...blah, but that's another story for another day!
