This was supposed to be Karsie's due date. We were never going to go this long even if she didn't come early, but what it means is that developmentally, Karsie is term. We don't think she will ever lose the term "preemie" since she was born premature, but as far as her development goes, she is at 40 weeks even though she's over a month old. This makes a difference now on weight and expectations and such but after a while she will lose the idea she's a month behind. The last time she was weighed and measured she was about 6 1/2 pounds and around 19 inches long. We'll try and get an exact weight and length today as it would be interesting to see, but she still growing strong.
