  • Tess was born at 33 weeks, weighing 2 lbs 15 oz and 16" long.

    She's still small at 2.5 yrs, but active and healthy.

  • Ian was born at 34 weeks, 5 pounds, 17 1/2 inches long. He's 2.5 now, still smaller than most other kids, but healthy and happy.

  • Well, she wasn't really a "premie" premie- moreso just early since developmentally she was fine. She was 36 weeks and weighed 5 lbs 13 oz.

  • my son Torren was borderline premie. Born at 37 weeks at 5 lbs 13 oz and only had a few minor problems, breathing early on, low blood sugar, jaundice and some digestive problems, but all fairly minor thankfully.

    He is now 2 1/2 and just hit 30 lbs but very health minus a harmless heart murmur
