Jake & Josh are fortunate to have a wonderful big brother, Zac.
He also was our introduction to prematurity.

February 2011
While pregnant with Zac in 1997, Lori began having contractions at around 23 weeks (ironically) and was put on bed rest. She was given medicine to hold off the labor and steroid injections to help speed the development of his lungs. The day after she went off the labor-prevention medicine, Zac arrived. That was Feb. 17, 1998.
Labor was difficult -- landing Lori in ICU, as happened with Jake & Josh's delivery. Yet Zac (and us!) were fortunate. Although he weighed only 4 pounds, 12 ounces, he never needed any special treatment. He avoided the NICU and all that goes with it.
Zac was 4 when Jake & Josh arrived. There was no way for him to understand everything that was going on, yet visiting his brothers in the NICU must've reached him on some level because he's always understood that Jake & Josh had a difficult start to their lives.
Zac was the one who picked out the red and blue Beanie babies that we put in their cribs early on. Once we realized the boys were the same size as the bears, they took on extra meaning -- and have become almost as iconic to us as the boys' footprints
