Celebrating Max and Sadie

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 Jenn M.'s twins, Max and Sadie, who were born at 29 weeks 4 days.

Max weighed 3 lbs 3 ozs and was in the NICU for 45 days. He needed help breathing with the CPAP for almost a month, but never needed to be on the ventilator. Max was also on a feeding tube for a month while learning the suck, swallow, breath reflex.

Sadie weighed 3 lbs 2 ozs with a 50 day NICU stay. Like Max, she also was on the CPAP and had a feeding tube.

In addition, they had the normal Apnea's and Bradychardia's while in the NICU, as they we working on growing big and strong.

Bundles of joy

They will be two in August and are doing well. Though they have been delayed in all areas, they are slowly starting to catch up. As a matter of fact, after a year of weekly physical therapy they just graduated! They are now focusing on speech and mom and dad are hoping they will be talking their ears off soon. They are also happy to report that despite the fact that they are on the low side for weight, they are finally actually ON the charts. Yay! Jenn also says: "we couldn't be more grateful for the funding that March of Dimes has supported."

Max's big brown eyes are incredible and Sadie looks so super cute in those pigtails. It's great to see how much they have grown and how far they have come over the almost two years.

Thank you Jenn for sharing their story with us. What cuties they are! We are very happy to hear how well they are progressing and to see those cute smiling faces. We are very proud and honored to celebrate them with you.
