Today is a special day in my household. It is the one year due date anniversary for my son, Josiah. This is a milestone day because although he has been a year old for almost seven weeks now, he was born premature. The brains and bodies of premature babies tend to develop according to their due dates rather than their actual birthdays until they “catch up” to their birthdays at around 2 years old; therefore, I have treated my little as if he was born on his due date when it came to making decisions such as what was appropriate to feed him, nursing, developmental expectations, etc. I am so excited that he is so healthy and growing so well! His pediatrician says that his development exceeds his due date expectations and is quite close to his birthday age. Thank You, Lord, for this undeserved blessing!
