Looking at this little man, you would never know that he had to fight for his life right out of the gate. Here, he is a little over 5 months old, yet he is only 10 pounds and gestationally is just a little over 2 months. These are his pictures after the NICU, after getting stronger at home for a few months.
Mom’s pregnancy was progressing fine, and there was nothing to worry about on the horizon. Until a routine doctor visit found that her blood pressure was through the roof. And I mean the roof was gone and nowhere to be seen. She was rushed to the hospital and found to have full blown eclampsia. The only cure for this deadly condition is to deliver the baby immediately. So, that’s what they did.
Mom stayed in the hospital recovering right along with her severely premature little baby for quite a while. He was eventually released about a week after his original due date and is now, thankfully, completely healthy and with a bright future ahead.
This hat is actually newborn-sized, but it fits him perfectly. Looking at this image, all you see are those gorgeous brown eyes.We took these images right before Christmas, so of course, I had to do something a bit Christmas-y! Looking at him now, no one would guess how rocky his start in this world was. But God created him for great things, so He gave him a little extra miracle to make sure that he could grow up to do them all.
