Little Tyler

We just heard GREAT news from our family that Scott & Katie (Scott is Ben's step-brother) were able to take their baby Tyler home yesterday!! He was born at 24 weeks on January 3, 2010 weighing 1 lb 13 oz, and 14 inches long. I can't believe that it would be like me giving birth next week! What a long and hard 3 months it's been for them, but they are such strong people and amazing examples.

March 8th:

He's now well over 5 lbs and finally home with his parents!! He's doing so well and we couldn't be happier for them. Scott and Katie are such amazing parents. And little Tyler is one tough little man! We can't wait to meet you Tyler!! Love you 3!

**Every day, thousands of babies are born too soon, too small and often very sick. If you want to walk March for Babies for Tyler's team on May 15th, or donate to their team, click here.

The money they raise will support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and help babies begin healthy lives. And it will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care. If you'd like to learn more about March for Babies or donate, go to their website.
