Max was 1 lb 3ozs when born, now he is almost 19 months and 17.5 lbs. There has been so much concern about him being small that I am bummed I just don't get a chance to sit back and say "wow, he has increased his weight by 16 times his birth weight" That in itself is a miracle. I look at pictures and can't believe how tiny he was. And then I get hand me downs from a friend, and I look at the size 2T and think, "Wow, when will he ever fit into this??" But I have to admit, he is so cute because he is so tiny, but is so capable of doing all the things he should at his age, he is so strong.
