Celebrating Abbey and Katie

We are celebrating, honoring and remembering our CMOTC NICU babies this month as part of the March for Babies walk for the March of Dimes.

Today, our spotlight is on CMOTC MOM Stephanie A.'s twins, Abbey and Katie, who were born at 35 weeks.

Abigail (Abbey) was 4 lbs 9 ozs and 19 inches long. She only stayed in the NICU for two days.
Katelyn (Katie) was 4 lbs 3 ozs and 17.5 inches long. Her NICU stay was five days (one longer than mom was in the hospital) due to being tube fed while she was learning the suck/swallow/breath mechanism.
The proud parents...

They are now 10 years old and in 4th grade. Stephanie says that they are very tiny for their age, but feels that runs in the family and is not related to the prematurity. Most importantly, though, they are doing fantastic! And what absolutely beautiful girls they have become, just look at those smiles.

Thank you Stephanie for sharing their story with us. We love to see how well they are doing and how much they have grown. They are beautiful girls and you have reason to be very proud. We are also proud and honored to celebrate them with you.

If you would like to celebrate, honor and remember your premature little one(s) this month on the blog, please send photos (then and now) along with your child(ren)'s information to columbusmultiples@gmail.com.
