4 Pounds, 3 ounces, AND....

Look who's in a "big bed".... Cooper has graduated!!

This was a big day for Cooper. Not only did he move up to an open crib, he was moved to the "outside" of the NICU, where the more stable babies are. They are the babies that don't need to be monitored as much because they are getting bigger! Very exciting!

Cooper has been doing great. He's 4 pounds 3 ounces. He's gaining about an ounce a day. The nurses mentioned that they may try to start bottle feeding next week. Last night, Jared also let us know that he was ready to go see Cooper. He had been really nervous about going to see him, with monitors and wires attached to him. But he told us he was ready. He asked the nurse lots of questions, and was very excited to hold Cooper.

Remember the puppy outfit?
He's almost outgrown it!

Tucker also has been asking to hold Cooper. Everytime we take him out of his bed, he said "let me hold him". So we let him...
