aware // meet my preemies: Walker

Meet Walker.  (Love his name, by the way.)  He spent 172 long days in the NICU.  That is almost 6 months!  Love this little guy.  He really is just too cute for words. 

Walker is a former 25 weeker.  He graced us with his early appearance weighing in at 1 pound 14 ounces and 13 inches long.  He had a long list of complications in his first year of life such as: BPD, CLD, feeding issues, NEC, ROP, sepsis, short gut, and meningitis. 

Walker just turned a year old and is on the charts for both height and weight.  He loves being independent and feeding himself.  He loves cheerios, crackers, vegetables, meat, really any thing.  He's trying to crawl and to clap his hands.  He looks adorable in his glasses! He's doing wonderfully!
