DENVER - Cherie Murren is preparing for her first Mother's Day with her son, Decker. On Tuesday, Cherie sent 9NEWS a selfie of the two.

9NEWS has been following Baby Decker, who is named after former-Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, for months. He weighed a barely more than a pound when he was born in November 2013. Cherie was only 24-weeks pregnant when she went into labor.

Now, Cherie says Decker is "finally doing so well" and even taking a bottle. While she doesn't have an exact date for when Decker will finally be able to go home, she says this is an important step in the right direction.
