Neonatal care has come a long way in the last few decades, but sometimes doctors have to get creative to save a little life. Pixie Grant spent the first few moments of her life not in her mother’s arms, but in an extremely bizarre place: a plastic sandwich bag. Yup, a sandwich bag! Pixie was born at just 28 weeks, once doctors determined she wasn’t gaining weight in utero. The medical staff tried coming up with a plan to delay her birth, but apparently, little Pixie was determined to have an October birthday.
Mindy and Keith got married in 2010, and within six months, the happy couple decided to start growing their family. After 18 months of infertility, Mindy had no idea why she couldn’t get pregnant. But instead of going in for her planned hysteroscopy, she finally had a positive pregnancy test.
Stephanie Smith’s son, Isaiah Quinn, started mysteriously developing a painful looking rashing all over his body when he was only three months old.

There was no way to keep the baby from being born, according to the doctors.

With dad sitting next to her, the baby started speaking (what seems to be) her own language – and we can’t get enough of it!
