Merry Christmas

I still can't believe how big Julianna is getting. This is last Christmas...

She wasn't even crawling yet. And now we can hardly get her to sit down for more than a few minutes. We're very excited to have 2 little ones at Christmas next year!

And speaking of our second little one, today is a major milestone for Baby K. Today, I am officially 24 weeks pregnant and Baby K is now considered "viable"! That is huge!!! If something should go really wrong at this point and he would have to be delivered he has a good chance of survival. I am in NO WAY saying that I would be ok with him being born anytime soon, but just knowing he would have a chance is a big relief. What an awesome Christmas gift!

We have a lot to be thankful for this Christmas. Julianna is healthy and so far hasn't had any major setbacks due to her prematurity. My IC was caught in time to intervene and let Baby K gestate a lot longer. We have family that has been so awesome and helpful lately. This will be a great Christmas.

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!


  1. Ah, she looks so cute! I can't believe she wasn't crawling last Christmas... she's come so far!

    I thought viability was a 26 week milestone?

    Merry Christmas Kieffer family!

  2. Mallory,

    Julianna didn't crawl until last February...she just didn't want

    24 weeks is viability...odds of survival hit 72% this week...its a big deal for someone with IC to make it to 24 weeks...most don't.

    Merry Christmas to you too!

  3. What GREAT leaps and bounds she has made in a year!!!

    Wow our girls are only days apart in age!!!! I am pretty sur lauryn is similar to the way she was last year, just mouthier this yer LOL :) Im gonna steal the idea and post a this year to last year photos on my blog later :)

  4. She looks so cute. Where's her picture from this year? Congrats on the 24 mark. With the two of us (and the Jennifers) being preemie parents already, we know what a milestone that is. Keep in in there for at least another 10 weeks!
