Re: He's BIG not little. From then to now. Pic Heavy.

Elias James was born 7/3/10. He was 34w4d, weighed 5lbs 13oz, and spent 10 days in the NICU.

Minutes after birth. There was nobody in the room when I delivered (they had just checked me and I was 8cm, so they left the room thinking it would still be a bit and he came out). So, I was able to have him chest to chest and delay the cord clamping/cutting until the doctor and NICU team arrived.

Day 1 in the NICU. He had RDS and had to be on a ventilator for 48 hours.

Under the bili-lights, around 5-6 days old.

2 weeks old, shortly after being discharged from the NICU.

8 weeks old. His dad and I got married.

12 weeks old.

16 weeks old.

6 months old. In the hospital with RSV.

7 months old. Weighs in at 21lbs!
