The Continuing Adventures of SuperPreemie

SuperPreemie, Then and Now

Posted on: April 7, 2014

We’re three weeks away from March for Babies and we’re way behind on our fundraising this year. Just to remind you of why we do this, I thought I’d do a little then and now comparison.

Shoshanna 9 1/2 years ago last Friday, with Pickles (10/4/04)

Shoshanna last Thursday, with her invention for the Invention Convention (which is today) (4/3/14)

9 1/2 years ago today (10/7/04) was the first time we were able to hold her – she was 12 days old.

Because it’s a school day, I didn’t get a picture of her this morning… but yesterday we went to the park to try out her new bat (in addition to biking 3.5 miles, playing on the playground, and trying out her new-to-her softball mitt).

I honestly can’t even wrap my head around the then-and-now. She was about 1 1/2 pounds and somewhere in the neighborhood of 13″ long 9 1/2 years ago. We measured her when we were bat shopping on Saturday and she measured 56″with sneakers on.

Do you think you can help us thank the March of Dimes for the research that helped Shoshanna survive as well the support they give to families like ours?

You can do that right here.
