Suck it.

Thanks so much for still dropping by. It must be a bit boring here lately. I appreciate you letting me rave on about Cooper. It's important for me to document this time.
Today, Cooper will have his first bottle. The hospital likes Mummy to give the first feed, and Mummy is thrilled to accept the challenge. By the way he sucks on his dummy I feel confident he will know what to do with the bottle. Here's hoping. He is now in the discharge nursery with 8 other bubs (including another Cooper!) It's very relaxed & non-clinical. We can pick him up whenever we like & he has gained more weight.

On the homefront I have his room all ready & waiting. All his little clothes hang, his pram has been mastered, his snuggle bed awaits. I try not to loiter in there too much because it makes me feel a little sad that he is missing....but it's also comforting to be amongst his things & imagine him home.
That will certainly be an amazing day.
He's 3 weeks tomorrow. And still as cute as a wee button.

Of course we're going to 'drop by'! We're all anxious to hear how Cooper is doing, what progress he is making, and most of all when he is coming home!

First bottle... wow! So no more feeding tube at all? That'll be major progress! And I know it must be so thrilling to be able to pick him up whenever you want!

All too sweet.

He'll be home soon by the sound of it,

As a total aside, love the title of this post.

He's adorable, and I'm just thrilled to hear how well he's progressing.

Here's to Cooper's first bottle feeding today.
