Fight for Preemie's Day Nov 17th

Peyton and Paige, my gorgeous, now 9 1/2 year old healthy nieces were born at 27 weeks 6 days. Peyton weighed 2 lbs 6 oz, and Paige was 2 lbs 5 1/2 oz. After an 8 week stay in 3 different NICU's they were released home with Peyton weighing in at a whopping 4lbs 1 oz and Paige at 3lbs 15 oz. Still very small. Their preemie clothes had to have the arms and legs rolled up like crazy and everytime we picked them up their tiny, tiny socks would fall off. Today they are now healthy, ENERGETIC, smart, athletic, and artistic. We, however will never forget the micropreemie, red babies that they started out as.
