One year at home! (and sibling update)

Saturday, March 14th marked the one year anniversary of Coy's homecoming from the NICU. I can't believe how fast the past year flew by! We have been so blessed to have our baby boy thriving, growing, and the absolute joy of our lives. He is doing so well and for that we couldn't be more thankful! He is babbling non-stop..."dadadada!" He says dada to everything. When I say "mama", Coy says "dada". Maybe one of these days he'll throw in mama too! =) Since he's been back into his crib, he's been sleeping through the night, every night. It's so nice to put him down at a decent hour and have some time to relax ourselves (at least for now)! He's making big strides in eating as well and likes to feed himself these days. And, his new trick is to clap at everything! So cute! Continue to pray for his progress!

As far as the new sibling goes...Coy will love HER! Yes, it's a GIRL! We are so excited! I am 17 weeks tomorrow and starting to take it easy as much as possible. Continue to pray for me and a full term baby please, I would appreciate it so much!

This is Coy one year ago...
And, this is Coy a few weeks ago..here is a video of Coy beating up his daddy...
