Micro Preemie Update
Today, I have another micro preemie update. Last week, I updated you on Faith and William, who were both in the NICU at the time of their Micro Preemie Monday story. You can read about their homecomings HERE.
If you read this blog regularly, you know Mondays are reserved for Micro Preemies. Every Monday, I feature another family that has gone through a premature birth. I love to share these stories to bring hope, to educate, and to show everyone how strong preemies truly are.
I also love following up with the families that I feature. There have been so many sweet babies and special families, and I love to follow along and see their journeys continue. I know that some of you may want an update too, so I would love to be able to bring you a micro preemie update as often as I can.
Life after the NICU isn’t always easy, and there are often challenges, but these fighters make everything worth it.
We first met Lilly back in March. The strength her mother, Amanda, showed during her pregnancy really stuck with me. She spent most of her pregnancy on strict hospital bedrest.
Lilly, who was born at just 25 weeks, 6 days, was also incredibly strong. She was only given a 16% chance at life. Lilly proved everyone wrong, and even came out breathing on her own.
When Amanda contacted me with an update, I was so excited to share it with you.
Here is the update from Lilly’s Mom, Amanda:
Lilly is currently 2 years 3 months and weighs 18 lbs 6 oz and is 31″ tall
She can say over 25 words, count to 5, identifies names, can jump, throw a ball, remember songs, and sleeps in a big girl bed!
She is all in all a very healthy little girl but does suffer from Celiacs Disease (Gluten free)
We are currently expecting baby #2 and know that Lilly will make a WONDERFUL big sister
Such a wonderful update, with wonderful news for the entire family!
If you have been featured on Micro Preemie Monday, I would love to share more updates. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your updates and current pictures.
Thank you so much to Amanda for sharing precious Lilly, and their wonderful news with us. Please leave any supportive comments below.
