Meet incredible baby Grace born FOUR MONTHS premature
Meet the incredible baby girl born four months prematurely, the size of a water bottle and given just a 4 per cent chance of survival by doctors. Tiny "miracle baby" Grace Parkinson, born after a 23 week pregnancy and weighing 1lb 1oz - the same as half a bag of sugar - has defied the odds to reach eight months old. Now living happily at home in Michigan, USA, with mum Mary, 26, and dad Zac, 30, when born Grace was so premature she was unable to open her eyes for two weeks. Grace was so fragile in fact, that new mum Mary was unable to hold her first-born child for 14 days because the delicate tot's skin could rip if touched.
