A Newborn

Yesterday, Dec 20th was our baby's actual due date (I know that is approximate) but we're using it to mark his progess.  Little Alan Vincent is no longer a preemie.  We can now call him a newborn.  And today his mom dressed him in newborn clothes as he has outgrown preemie clothes - right on schedule.  At left: holding hands with grandma in hospital. Then home at 9 days at a tiny weight of 4 lbs, he's now closing in on 6 pounds five weeks five days from birthdate.

My mom is one of the best Grandmothers there ever was! Even better than a mom - but only by a tiny bit. :)

My darling nephew Conor was born at exactly 25 weeks weighing less than 1 lb in 2008. Even the premie clothes were huge on him. Happy to say he is now running around the place so I know exactly how you feel with your newborn being able to wear regular clothes. Congratulations!!!!
