This is baby Chloe. She was born at 25.5 weeks and weighed only 1lb and 10oz. She was in the NICU for 3 months and was so small she could fit into your hand. The doctors don’t know why she was born early but I guess it doesn’t matter because she survived and grew up to be…This! A healthy 3 1/2 year old who loves singing and to play guitar! It didn’t come without hard work though and we are really lucky that we live at a time where a baby born so early and small can grow up to be a healthy and happy kid.Here is Chloe with her mom Jen when she was 1 1/2 months old. Here is a recent picture of Chloe rocking her rad toddler style and cruising on her tricycle. She hasn’t had any issues since birth which is amazing. I hear about preemies all the time but I have never seen the pictures of the awesome kids they grow up to be. So thank you Jen for sending me these pictures!
