  • My ex-s other son was born at 24 weeks as well...from what understand he weighed about 3/4 of a pound. He is almost 6 now. He has had some health issues (like having to take growth hormones) but he is the sweetest thing and very happy :)

    I wish you the best in finding someone to connect with. And I am very happy that your little one is doing good.
