I remember when Katte is finally home. And all i do is to stare at her and imagine how can be she like if ever i gave birth on fullterm. I was like, if only she has this chubby cheeks. If only she has this big arms and legs. Only if she has a normal weight as to fullterm baby. And because of this curiousity, or somewhat excitement, on how a 33weeks premature baby would like as time goes by, i search all over the internet to find a related case of her. I find no good result. And so i promise to myself that i’ll compile all her photos to see her progress and share to all moms that are paranoid as me. And so here it is. Katte at her month 0-2weeks: Weight: 3.8lbs Length: 49cm When she were still at NICU. I go there for breastfeeding.

Katte at 12 months. Dandandan! Happy birthday Katte! Welcome to toddlerhood! She can now walks steadily on her own. Few words like mom, dad, no, yes. A very jolly and playful Katte. Thank you babe for teaching mommy to be strong. for letting me understand patience, perseverance and persistence.
She’s not a chubby, heavy weight baby though, yet I believe she’s not delayed on her milestone as a premature. And that’s what really matters for us. As time goes by, whenever i see how happy and healthy she is, I never doubted her growth anymore. I trusted Katte that she can develop on her own together with our love and guidance. 🙂
