Meet Our Kiddos

Colin Colin was born at 37.5 weeks and weighed in at 5lbs 7oz. He was at the zero percentile on the growth chart, but was considered healthy and went to the newborn nursery. He ended up in the NICU for 5 days with low blood sugar, but no other complications, and came home with us after a week in the hospital. [ Read More ]
