Doctors gave little Grace a 4 percent chance at survival when she was born, and now she's celebrating her first birthday! Grace was born at just 23 weeks old, which is dangerously premature. She had to spend a lot of time in the NICU in an incubator and underwent multiple surgeries, blood transfusions, ultrasounds and x-rays. But against all odds, she made it. Now at 1 year old, she's happy and healthy, and doctors expect her to continue on that path!

Hospital Hosts Free Baby Shower For Deserving Moms

While it may seem like a normal thing to have a baby shower, it's often a luxury for many soon-to-be moms. To provide some relief to expectant mothers and give them a chance to celebrate, the St. Bernard Hospital in Chicago decided to throw a massive baby shower. More than 100 deserving women from a high-poverty neighborhood showed up, and all received gifts to take home. Evelyn Jones is the vice president of Nursing Services at the hospital and devised the idea last year, according to ABC News. She spent about $1000 of her own money this year, but it's definitely worth it to provide attendees with the only chance they may have to have a baby shower. via Good Morning America   View Now

Spatial awareness doesn't really come easily to dogs, which is probably why Bo the dog had trouble figuring out why his pillow couldn't fit through the doggie door. Likewise, the idea of cameras also escapes dogs. So when Sidney's human came home, she tried to act innocent, with no idea the video recorded her chewing up her doggie bed. View Now
