3 lbs.

Sorry it has taken so long for me to update the blog, we have really taken time to spend as much time with Whittaker as possible. Whitt is now at 3 lbs. , he has lost 3 oz. but it is nothing to fret about, the nurses say it is pretty common. But with that said, he does need to start gaining weight, we need to slowly increase the milk and decrease the IV fluids (vitamins) going in him (we are praying the IV comes out tonight). Texas Children's is really a neat place, I am so glad that God has placed Whitt there. It was so AMAZING to be with him today, just to see him open his eyes and squirm, it was so so great to see him smile! It was a just the best feeling to finally be able to hold him (even though I was a little nervous because he is so small), it was also great to see Andy hold his son.... I loved it!!!!! Andy was able to change his diaper today, it was really neat to see him take charge, he was definitely more brave than me. SUPER DAD (say it to the Super man tune)!!!! It is so crazy how small he is, in pictures he just looks like such a giant compared to real life, I was in total shock along with every one else that comes to visit on how small he actually is. God has just blessed us with a total miracle, which AMAZES me, how God just pours blessing upon blessing to HIS children. It is crazy how God knew from the very beginning of my life that I would be having a baby on June 11th at noon instead of August 11... HE knew and HE knew why.... it just shows how are life are so beautifully orchestrated. Well I am getting tired and I need to save my energy for Andy's FIRST Father's day with Whittaker.  
Here are some pics of the little man...

Our First Family Picture!!!!!



Please pray that Whittaker will continue to improve and that he grows into a strong young man. Please continue to pray for me (Corey) and my blood pressure, that it continues to stable out. Also please pray for the bond to strengthen between us and our son, it is all still so surreal.
Also, Andy has to go back home to work for part of this week (Monday morning), 
so please pray for his safety and all of our emotions as he has to be away. 
 We have a long journey ahead but we know that GOD has picked the path, so we are ready!!!!! 

Love, 
Corey and Andy
