This morning I pulled out one of Brandon's first diapers (they were the size of my cell phone) and put it next to one of the diapers he is wearing now (size 2/3) and I was amazed at the difference in size. I also pulled out the first preemie sleeper he ever wore and put it next to one of his sleepers (size 9 month) from now to see the difference. He is really getting big. I also took a picture of him with his stuffed dog that I bought for him the day I got out of the hospital after having him. He was almost the same size at the dog when he was born. Look how big he is now compared to the dog. Yesterday I took a picture of him with his preemie doll that was the size that he was when he was born. I took a picture of him with it in January (picture with green overalls on) when I got it and he has grown so much since then even. Brandon continues to amaze me everyday with how far he has come.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
