A Year of Cohen

One Year of Cohen:

365 days of life
130 days in the NICU
2 PICC lines
2 self extubations
1 lung bleed
30 chest xrays (in June ALONE...I got tired of counting!)
6 echos (+1 before he was born)
2 months on a ventilator
6 months on oxygen
1 horrible, seemingly unheard of skin rash
1 itsy, bitsy catheter
Multiple neonatologists, 1 cardiologist, 1 pulmonologist, 1 opthamologist, 1 pediatrician, and 2 OTs
Too many doctors visits to count
Countless diaper changes and bottles
1 ER visit
1 time barfing in mom's mouth (ew!)

4 teeth (2 top, 2 bottom)
1000s of prayers
1000's of pictures taken
1 camping trip
Went from eating 1.5mL an hour to eating 8 ounce bottles
Gained 16 lbs
4 words - mama, dada, baby, hey 
Went from a preemie diaper folded in half (and it was still too big!) to a size 3 diaper
Learned to roll over, sit up, crawl, and pull up to stand

Whew, that's a lot in one year for one little boy!


  1. I can't believe how much he's talking! He says more than Malachi - he definitely knows how to play catch up!
