Weight Progression

So you might be wondering, what on earth... why post all of this? As a preemie parent, I know I worried often about whether Lydia was on track with her weight and development. I hope that this gives you an idea of the curve Lydia was on, and maybe help you figure out if your preemie baby is on track too.
