7 lbs!

Our little man now weighs 7lbs! He's even grown out of some of his clothes! I was so excited! He's in-between Preemie and Newborn sizes right now. I just love dressing him everyday! We've had a great time just "hanging out" together this past week or so. It's so nice to not have any appointments. We do go back to Dr. Hittner tomorrow for a check-up--please continue to pray for total healing of Coy's eyes.

I was so scared to stay home with Coy after our neighbors house was broken into two days ago. They kicked in the front door and stole the plasma T.V. and some very special jewelery--all while their alarm was going off. The police were dispatched by the alarm company as a "motion alarm" in the house, so they thought it was a pet. They didn't show up for 1 hr 15 minutes! So, the intruders were long gone by then. It's so unfortunate that this has been occurring more often in our area. Apparently, they are targeting homes that no one is home during the day. I was just freaked out to think someone could have been lurking around my house too, and possibly saw me inside! It's sad there are some seriously bad people in this world. I guess you can't be too cautious no matter where you live!

Anyway, here are some recent pics...

"Oh Mom, please take these glasses off me, I'm not a doll..."








And Coy wants to say, "Happy Birthday Aunt Mandy and Uncle Matthew!"....

He looks so big and strong now!

And how scary about your neighbors. My car was broken into a few months back in our driveway. Our dogs were barking like crazy, and I got up to quiet them down without even checking to see what they were barking at! They didn't get away with much, I was able to get my cards cancelled before they spent much more than twenty dollars. It was just an odd feeling knowing someone had been in my car, going through my stuff and the kids.

Sorry Little Man Coy, but you ARE a doll! Those chubby cheeks look good enough to just pinch!

Hey guys,

What a cutie !!!! I love the cheeks, its a premmie thing, they all seem to have them. We love Dr. Hittner, she has done all of Kirby's surgeries. I dont know what we will do when she retires. I keep telling her she is the only one who can touch Kirby's eyes so she will have to get a room at the hospital!! Kirby used to call her "Dr. Hitman" , she would always laugh and say well that maybe a true statement. It is amazing to think about how many children she has helped over the years. So sorry to hear about your neighbors house. It was a little to close to home for you guys. Coy looks absolutely adorable in the pics. What a cutie!

PRECIOUS!!! He is such a doll and those cheeks are just the cutest thing! I can not believe he is getting to big!!! WOW! I know what you mean about getting dressed everyday. I dress Kenz everyday regardless if we are leaving the house or not!!! JD always ask where we are going and I say "No where! Everyday is a fashion show for your sister!" JD runs around in underwear all day! LOL!!

I can't believe that about your neighbors. We are right next door in Stone Gate and I always get a little freaked out when my dogs go crazy. If someone is gonna breakin, PLEASE let it be when I am not here!!!
