big and chubby

"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10

I'm happy to report Coy is doing great here at home! He is really getting big and chubby! He loves his milk! We are all adjusted to NO sleep now; actually, Coy has really improved on his sleeping habits over the past 4 days. At first, I thought he had his days and nights mixed up, but he is now sleeping in his cradle between feedings at night. This gives me about 2 hours of sleep at a time! It's awesome =)! He has been congested for the past day or so; I have been using the bulb syringe to extract some VERY large boogers--yes, gross, but true. He sounds much better today but absolutely hates the suctioning. Other than that, he is your average newborn--eats, poops, sleeps, repeat....


Please continue to pray for Coy's total healing and complete development! We don't have any MD appts this week--next Monday we will see the High Risk Pedi.

The March of Dimes Walk is fastly approaching. We invite you to join team Coy if in the Houston area and come walk with us! Click the link on the right of the page for more details!

What a cute little chubster! He's adorable! It's wonderful he loves to eat, I know a lot of preemies have issues with that. I'm so happy he's able to let you guys sleep a little now too! Keep up the great progress Coy!

Love, Ann

It is so great to see pictures of him doing so well. He looks fantastic and I am so glad to hear that you are 'adjusting' to such a miracle baby.

I just can't believe how chubby his cheeks and chin are! So cute!! I praise God for how far he has brought you all! I know you must be exhausted not getting much sleep but I am sure, thankful on the same hand just to have him home with you now. Continuing to pray for development and healing!

In Christ,
Amanda
