Being careful for Cooper

So as you all know Cooper had a rough start but is doing much better. We have received strict Dr.'s orders for the first year of Cooper's life that everyone who touches Cooper MUST wash their hands immediately prior to holding him. No strong perfumes or smelly lotions, no smoke (not good since we have all these fires in CA right now), and no oils. We were told to avoid church, grocery stores, malls, movie theatres, basically anywhere with a crowd because crowds are where you get sick. Cooper's lungs are doing better but they are fragile and we want to do everything we can to keep him a healthy boy! :) We hope you understand and want you to know that if you come to visit Cooper you will need to wash your hands. :) Turns out in doing some research that they actually make signs to put on your stroller that say this. I guess it's not only Cooper that has received these orders but most babies in general as their immune systems are still developing the first year of their life. Who knew?!

You would think that people know to wash their hands around a newborn...but as Kev and I found...they dont...good idea with the signs. Hope Cooper is doing well.
