I had my baby boy December 2, 2006 at 29 weeks 3 days. Went into labor at 27 weeks and was hospitalized til I had him and went through 2 rounds of steroid shots. He was 2lbs 14oz and 15 1/2 inches long. He was in NICU for 53 days.

He was a fighter and still is. He's almost 6 now and is the smartest little boy I know. He started kindergarten this year, and is reading at a 5th grade level and doing 5th an 6th grade math. He's a sponge and loves reading facts about animals and the solar system. He's amazing :)
