I was born at 30 weeks gestation via c-section. Me and my Mom were both sick and she couldn't visit with me in the NICU for several days. I weighed just over 4 pounds on my birthday. I LOVE to eat and now I weigh over 8 pounds! I had to have CPAP for awhile because my lungs were collapsed. I don't need the oxygen any more but sometimes I forget to breathe so I'll stay in the hospital a little longer. I can't wait to go home and play with my big brothers!

I was born at 25 weeks old, weighing 1 pound 4 ounces. Because of my weight and my upper respiratory problems I was admitted into the NICU. Since I have been here, I have learned how to breathe on my own. My mom says I am doing a really good job at taking the bottle but sometimes I need a little help from my feeding tube. She has already started calling me her little diva because I do what I want; she says I get that type of attitude from my dad. I’ll have to stay in the NICU a little bit longer before I can go home with my family, so for now I’ll just keep getting stronger and stronger!

When I took my first breath, I remember being wheeled in a box to a room where I first saw my Dad. I was born at 30 weeks and had a rough time breathing. I weighted 3 pounds 11 ounces. I had a breathing tube and a feeding tube in my mouth. I didn't get to see my Mom until a few days later because she needed to heal from surgery. I'm almost 4 weeks old and only need a little bit of oxygen until my lungs are strong enough. I'm in a crib now and get to look around more. Mom and Dad come to see me and home me everyday. I now weigh 4 pounds, 12 ounces and will be able to eat form a bottle soon. I'm always looking at Mom & Dan and smiling when they give me kisses and show me they love me.
