Celebrating Jack and Sumner

We have been celebrating, honoring and remembering our CMOTC NICU babies for the entire month of April (and a couple days into May) as part of the March for Babies walk for the March of Dimes.

Today, the last of this series of posts, our spotlight is on CMOTC MOM Meghan A.'s twins, Jack and Sumner (Summy) who were born at 32 weeks 4 days.

Jack weighed 4 lbs 2 ozs. He was on CPAP for three days and nasal cannula for two days, then room air. He was in the NICU for four weeks.

Summy weighed 4 lbs 1 ozs. He was also in the NICU for four weeks, though on room air from birth.

So very tiny...

Today the boys are three years old and thriving! Both boys have sensory processing disorder, fine, gross motor and social/emotional delays, which are helped with PT, OT and soon equine therapy. They also attend special needs preschool. Though that sounds like a lot, Meghan says they are doing very well. The proof is in the photos; just look at how happy they are! Don't you just feel happiness when looking at these handsome little men who are so clearly full of joy and also love for each other?

Thank you Meghan for sharing their story with us. It is great to see how well they are doing! We are very proud and honored to celebrate them with you.

You can read more about Jack and Summy's adventures and progress on Meghan's blog: The Adventures of Taterbaby.

Though we are officially done with these series of posts for the March of Dimes, we will still ALWAYS take photos and stories of your little ones. Whether you would like to celebrate, honor and remember your premature little one(s) or your full term multiples (or singletons), we will happily feature them on the blog any time. Please send photos (then and now) along with your child(ren)'s information to
