My son was born at a gestational age of 23 weeks, 21 weeks into my pregnancy and 17 weeks before his due date. He was 1 lb 5 oz and about a foot long. Those are the numbers, and this is his story.
Wow, I might be really behind the times, but standing and pushing up with his arms like that. Those seem like huge accomplishments! Superman indeed. :)
Jamie: No, you're not too far behind. This is fairly new -- like in the past month. And now he's been going up on all fours consistently all week. And while he's still between four and eight months behind on gross motor (depending which "age" you go by) his therapists are impressed with him! He might be crawling well before Christmas. AND when we stand him up and hold his hands, he takes independent steps all over the house.
