Text from my brother.

Maxwell Theodore
2 pounds 1 ounce.
Born about 20 minutes ago. Small but complete. Squealing like a little squirrel. Taken c-section. They say everything now is fine, they are doing xrays and checking everything out. He looks fancy beyond words. Keep praying.

*Thank you ALL for praying. Please continue. I'll keep you updated.

  17. I am praying, and I have asked all the people who work in my office (an ob/gyn office so it really hits home) to pray as well... I have faith little Maxwell will be just fine and will be playing with Levi by Christmas.

  24. 2 lbs. 1 oz. is actually BIG for a 27 weeker....praise God! The Lord made incredible doctors and specialists for a reason, so trust in them in addition to trusting in the Lord and you will see how miraculous this will all work out!

  25. i'm praying. i was about 3 pounds when i was born and then dropped to 2 something. little Maxwell will grow up to be big and strong (and may even have to go on a diet in, say, 23 years or so).

  26. Praying for your sweet little nephew. My nephew only weighed a few more ounces than that when he was born, and he's as healthy as can be. The next few months will be though, but they'll make it through.
