Today I had an appointment for a non stress test at Dr. Lyons office. Little Cooper didn't want to cooperate and apparently refused to move so he failed his test at the office and I was sent to the hospital for another test and an ultrasound.

Still being stubborn it took a while for him to decide to move around. The ultrasound tech spent nearly 30 minutes trying to get him to move enough to pass that movement test and he finally did! She showed me that he is close to 8 pounds by their estimates and that he has a head full of hair! We couldn't see his sweet face though because he is in a weird position and completely facing my spine.........which explains some of the pain I have been having.

Cooper will definitely be arriving on Monday around noon by c-section so please say a prayer for our family!

Since we are getting ready to celebrate Cooper's arrival I wanted to take time and reflect back on Colby's arrival in our lives 5 and a half years ago. As you know he decided to come out two months early and only weighed 2 lbs 15 ounces. He spent a month in the NICU and then we got to bring him home. His first year of life was rough due to a low immune system which has since corrected itself and now he is healthy as a horse!

God has truly blessed our families with two miracle babies and we are so thankful to Him! Enjoy the pictures of my wonderful first born son!!
