So thankful

Yesterday was World Prematurity Awareness Day so I thought it would be neat to take a pic of Cooper with one of the onesies that he wore when he was in the nicu. It's easy to forget that my rambuncious toddler was one a wee 31 weeker that needed a tube down his nose to eat! I'm just so thankful for everyday with this sweet boy!

He's probably about 2 weeks old here so he was 33 weeks gestation. He weighed right at 4 pounds! See the tube going down his nose? I still remember my first kiss on his cheeks when it was finally removed about 4 days before leaving the nicu...

This was last night! Now, he's about 26 pounds and 35 inches long! He eats everything and anything by mouth!


  1. It's great! Look at all that hair in the NICU! The Girl had some hair when she was born, but it all fell out. The Boy was peach fuzz city.

  2. I LOVE IT!!! And what a wonderful and precious thing to be thankful for :)

  3. So sweet! I happy you all have eachother!
