    This is a photo of my first grandchild - his name is Rainn Michael and was born 4 weeks ago today. He weighed 1 pound 4 ounces when he was born - at 27 weeks 3 days and has been a pretty tough little guy so far. He has now gained about 7 ounces, which doesn't sound like much, but it IS over 33% of his starting weight! He has a long way to go in the NICU, probably 2 more months, but he will be able to get more and more nutrition now that he is a little older. He has a CPAP - the apparatus on his face - but they are weaning him off of that eventually.

    Now - hopefully, I will be able to load the photo.....

    Ohhhhhh... that beautiful precious boy! I can just see his little button nose under there. So tiny- have you been able to hold him yet? Congrats to you and your family- and prayers for his rapid growth so he can come HOME!


    I have a friend at church with a beautiful, straight As, spunky as all get out 12 year old. She was born early like little Rainn. I think she weighed under 2 pounds as well. They had a rough time in the beginning, and she had a lot of ear infections and stuff her first couple years, but she is an amazing girl now! And tall for her age too!

    Oh my, he is so tiny and precious!!!!!! Prayers are coming his way to keep him strong and growing!!

    My son-in-law's first cousin and wife little girl was born extremely early also. I think she also weighed just over a pound. Now she is an adorable, talkative little 2 year old. You would never know she was a tiny preemie.

    Prayers are going out for this beautiful little boy. I had granddaughters born 7 weeks early, 18 years ago, and lucky for them, they weighed in at 4 1/2# each. They spent 6 weeks in NICU, and to look at them now, you would never believe they were preemies. They are both close to 6 ft tall, and are doing just fine. The miracles of modern medicine and the power of prayer will take care of him.

    Congratulations on your new grandson. He is so cute. My twin sister and I were born 10 weeks early and small. I was 3 pounds 1 ounce she was 3 pounds 6 ounces. We spent a few months in ICU but are doing well now. We are 28 years old now.

    What a sweetie pie, I have a great nephew that weighed the same when he was born. He had heart surgery the second week and 2 hernia surgeries before coming home. But today, thank God, he is a healthy 3 year old. God is good. Congrats to you grandma and mom and dad.
