Yesterday was my first day back to work...longest 12 hours of my life! It wasn't so bad though since I knew he was in awesome hands! Eric had him all day long and they had such a good time together. I am only working one day per week, so I can't really complain, but it was hard to leave his sweet little self that morning!!! They came to eat lunch with me, so that was fun, but harder to go back after lunch! We had a great, really full weekend of family birthday parties and family dinner. Cohen is so blessed by God to have SO many family members who are almost as in love as we are with him! Tonight, I fed him 5 ounces for the first time! He has been pretty consistently sleeping 6-7 hrs at night which from what I hear is pretty awesome for an infant and so I am really thankful for that! We had another couple of showers last weekend and got some really great and much needed things. People continue in their generosity! He seems to be a lot bigger, growing like crazy. I need to get some good pics of him on here so you can all see how different he looks from the first week! I'll get right on that!

- I became an aunt, AGAIN!!!!! I am proud to announce the birth of a healthy baby boy, Houston Kenneth Moore to Eric's little sister A.K. He was born last week and had some trouble breathing and eating and so there was a scare that he was not okay, but turns out he is very healthy, no growth of bacteria in his blood cultures and he got off oxygen and came home last night! We have spent all weekend at the hospital and are so thankful that he is healthy and at home with his family!!! God has tremendously blessed our family....we believe Cohen and Houston will be best friends!
- E signed her surrender on May 31st, so as of April 10th at 4:30 pm she was unable to change her mind any more. My heart felt and still is heavy for her as I just wonder how she is doing. How hard were those days for her? I am trusting in the Lord that she is okay and that He is caring for her. Please continue to pray for her when you think of us.
- Cohen is a growing boy! I don't have a current weight, but he eats like a champ! I think we have hit our first growth spurt this weekend since he has increased feeding to every 2.5 hrs or so. He is just getting loved on from all directions. He seems to be a pretty even tempered little guy. He only gets upset when hungry and then sometimes when sleepy and he just can't quite figure out how to get himself to sleep. We help him along by singing to him and rocking him...spoiling him rotten I am sure! We actually are about to head out the door to a "Diaper Dunk" that Eric's co-workers are throwing for us. They are giving us diapers and wipes of all sizes! We had a shower from my church girls that was so awesome last weekend. He got loved on some more there, too! oh yeah, and I am gaining weight!!!! We have had several friends bringing over dinner to us for the past 3 weeks and it is all SOOOO good. And of course, several have brought dessert...not good for the waist line!
Anyway, I have told Eric to remind me and be sure that I blog again about the hospital and just more about Cohen. so please, don't give up on us, we will keep blogging!!! Love you all!
