Been a few days

I know it's been a few days since I've updated. Things have been going well. Cooper has been doing great. He's up to 24ml of breast milk. He has a few issues with spitting up, and they are watching him for reflux. Normal with preemies (and some full-term babies), but his heart rate drops some when he spits up, so they are feeding him at a slower rate to see if that helps.

He now weighs 2lbs 14 oz. His nurse told us when he gets over 3 we may be able to start putting clothes on him! They will try to start getting him to regulate his own body temperature at that time, and clothes will help him stay warm. I can't wait! We have gotten some really cute things as gifts. And, it just seems like one step closer to him coming home!

Tucker went with us last night. Of course, all the nurses loved him! And he was a little ham. I finally got a picture with my 2 youngest kids.


  1. I am so glad he is still thriving!
