12,000 Miles

Danny and I decided the other day that in the last 3 months, he has probably driven about 12,000 miles between his job and back and forth to Seattle twice a week. Whew! That's a lot of miles. And we feel it. Neither of us has been at home for any consistent amount of time in the last 3 months, one month before the boys were born, and 2 months after. We are so, so thankful for the hospital and the nurses and doctors who have taken care of both Cohen and I. We know it will all be worth it in the end, but we are starting to grow weary of living at the hospital, not being together as a family, This combined with the stress of having a NICU baby, and of course missing Carter, is taking its toll on us mentally and physically. We are praying for strength and endurance to continue on and hoping that Cohen gets to come home soon (like in a month soon).

Cohen weighs 3 lbs 10 oz today. He has to start getting some of his 2 month immunizations soon :( The last couple days we have noticed that he has had a little cough. We are hoping that he isn't getting sick. The Drs said that it could either be reflux or some irritation left from being intubated for two months. We are hoping it's just nothing and will go away. 
And here are the pictures of Gramma R holding Cohen for the first time!
