Babies are so small when they’re born, sometimes it feels like they can fit in the palm of your hand. But when Matthew Riddle III was born, he really could fit in the palm of his parents’ hands. He only weighed one pound and two ounces when he was born.

When Matthew’s mom Jenevieve Cook was 28 weeks pregnant, doctors noticed Matthew wasn’t growing properly and they induced an early labor. Matthew was diagnosed with a rare condition called microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II (MOPDII), also known as primordial dwarfism.
