Celebrating Jack and Addie

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

Today, our spotlight is on CMOTC MOM Elaine L.'s twins, Jack and Addie, who were born at just 27 weeks.

Jack was 2 lbs 6 ozs. and 14 inches long. He was in the NICU for three months.


Addie was 2 lbs. 8 ozs and 15 1/2 inches long. She was also in the NICU for three months.

They are now 14 months old and doing great!

As a matter of fact, during those NICU months, they were told that Jack may never walk, but just last week he started WALKING! Can you hear us all cheering Jack?! Check out his new strut below.

Addie is on his heels and starting to walk herself as well. Go Addie!

Thank you Elaine for sharing their story (and fabulous news) with us. We are very happy that Jack and Addie are doing so well and that Jack is walking! They are such cuties, with gorgeous big blue eyes, and we are 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.

  1. Congratulations on Jack and Addie walking, Elaine! When I was there a few weeks ago I knew he was getting close- so nice that he has made it. Doctors don't always know the power of the human spirit. Your children are beautiful and amazing!
