Many of you have been praying for our grandson. For those of you who don’t know, our grandson was born prematurely four months ago. He weighed 1 pound, 14 ounces. He has spent the first four months of his life in the hospital. When his parents are with him at the hospital, his 6 and 9 year-old sisters stay with us. We were expecting him home the end of this week, so my granddaughters helped me set a “Welcome Home Cooper” table.
Our little Cooper is truly a miracle. He has fought so many battles, and he’s an amazingly healthy looking, strong, and alert four month old. He’s had more medical procedures than I’ve had in my lifetime. He had one more milestone to pass before he could come home. Today, he took the “car seat test”. Because we live 3 hours from the hospital, he had to sit in a car seat for three hours. He flunked. His breathing and heart rates dropped after less than an hour in the car seat. It doesn’t look like he’ll be coming home this weekend, but hopefully, very soon.
tarnished shabby chic silver baby mugs were gifts to my children when they were born.
I’m not sure if we’ll be able to use this Welcome Home tablescape, or if another scape will have to be prepared before he comes home.
I had a Ginnette doll when I was a child, and I still have her baby bottle!
This was my Mother’s teething ring from the early 1900’s!
Napkin rings and flatware holders are children’s mugs.
I want to again thank all of you who have been praying for Cooper. We are so very touched by the prayers and concern of so many people. God has given Cooper and his family the strength and courage to make it through this journey. We know there will still be difficulties to face, but we believe the hardest part is behind us, and we praise God for our little miracle.
