We saw the immunologist last week and got our lab results back this week. Cooper's immunology work up looks good, he does have an over agressive immune system. His CBC did concern Dr. Adkins. Cooper's lymphocytes and monocytes were elevated indicating that he has some type of virus. CBC will have to be repeated regularly to keep a check on this. Dr. Adkins suggested pulling Jackson from daycare until Cooper's immune system has matured. I have been expecting & fearing this news. Travis and I have discussed trying to make this work with me working part time. I have found a baby sitter for Jackson and Cooper will continue to stay with my grandmother on the days that I work. Praise the Lord -- I was able to work all this out with my employer and will be able to stay where I am and work part time until we get Cooper well. They have really been awesome through out this entire process. I am truly blessed.

Here are some recent pics of the boys. Cooper had his first Oreo the other day and OF COURSE he is a big fan!!

JACKSON wasn't really sure what to think of this, especially since we aren't real big on letting him make such messes with food and he wasn't as amused as we were so he went on to other things.

and here are few more - you will notice they are both snotty and red eyed. we've pretty much had the crud at my house since early December

Well, Travis and I survived the flu two weeks ago and it truly was a nightmare. We had to send the boys away for almost a week while we got over it. So we are just now getting back into our routine.

Our Snow Day made for a really good time. Travis hates the snow so he stayed inside with Coop while Jackson and I played. We had the best time. Pics will be coming soon!!

Bailey and Brighton's Birthday Party was this weekend. Since Coop sees the specialist on Wednesday I didn't want to expose him to anything so he stayed with mom so me and Jackson could party. As always, Dee Dee's cupcakes and cakes were AWESOME!! Jackson had a blast-I could not pry him away from the footballs!!

Mom kept the boys for us Saturday night so Travis and I could go on a date to see a movie!! I had said earlier in the day that I did not care if we saw Wolfman just as long as I got to have popcorn...WELL I changed my mind but tried really hard not to pressure Travis into seeing Valentines Day-okay so that is a lie. I did my best to convince him that it was up to him and that Valentines Day is what he wanted to see. IT WORKED and we both enjoyed the movie!! It was PACKED/SOLD OUT and those of you who know my husband know how he is about crowd but we had a really great time!!
