A new tiny life...

10.25.2016




My daughter shared the news this summer that she was expecting another baby, due on December 23rd. A Christmas baby! Except, as babies are known to do, they surprise us and come early...Last night, at 31 weeks gestation, Amelia Jayne (Millie) was born and I had the privilege of watching her enter the world and hear her first tiny cry.

Millie was quickly taken away while they worked on her to get her to breathe better and get her into her new bed in NICU where she will be staying for a long time while she grows and gets stronger. 

She is so very tiny. 

Her stats: 3 pounds 2 ounces
15 ½" long 


Welcome to the world, sweet baby Millie.....

  1. Your sweet little one is a darling!!! I will pray for Mommy and baby to get strong soonest. We had one in the NICU also.....not an easy journey. Today our Laurel is four and just a bitty whirlwind. A true gift from God. Congrats and much love.

  6. God bless you all! May God's healing hand rest upon her. WOW...she's really quite big for a 31 week baby (I think, anyway)! That's really good news. Congratulations!!!

  8. Congratulations. I had a grand daughter who was born November 1, at 32 weeks, and weighed the same, I think she was shorter, because she fit in the palm of my hand. She only stayed in the hospital for 4 days (could pass all the tests for breathing, car seat etc.). Now she is going to be 9 years old.

  9. Amy, what a blessing.
    She is so cute. You know Millie is going to be well cared for in the NICU
    My Lizzie arrived early too at 32 weeks. It is frightening. 30 years ago, I was almost certain she was going to die.
    Now we live in such fortunate times that we have good docs and medicines that help them continue their growth.
    I recall getting the bill for Elizabeth, it was $65,000 and we were joking we could have bought a Jaguar for that.
    We had good insurance
    I hope the nurses and your daughter can see her every day. It is such a blessing we have cameras now to take thousands of photos
    you are a lucky gramma♥️

    I'll be praying that she "graduates" from the NICU before long - and for health and strength for all of you.

  19. Congratulations on Millie's birth! 27 years ago my son was born at 33 weeks gestation. He's a big strapping hairy thing now! Millie will be the same (except not so hairy and probably far more dainty). She's so precious!

  21. Congratulations! A blessed little bundle for sure. Being a grandparent is truly one of God's Greatest Blessings. I am so very thankful for the medical knowledge God has given to the specialist.
