At the pediatrician yesterday, Katie Rose weighed eight pounds and eight ounces (about 3,856 grams). This is more than four times her birth weight of one pound fourteen ounces (840 grams). Eight eight is great. Go, Katie, go!
840 grams is big for a 24-week “micro” preemie, but tiny in the overall scheme of things. It’s wonderful and miraculous to see Katie bulking up so quickly, and enjoying her young life.
