A premature baby from Essex has defied the odds to celebrate her first birthday today.
Demi Bloomfield from Chelmsford was given a slim chance of survival, after being born three and a half months early. She weighed just 1 pound 6 ounces, that's an equivalent of half a bag of sugar.
Her parents Anna Williams and Carl Bloomfield say it was like a dream when they were able to bring Demi home after nearly 4 months in hospital.
She still needs ongoing checks and has only been breathing without an oxygen mask for the past 3 weeks.
