Watch as a 'medical marvel' premature baby who survived a life threatening intestine disease starts walking - just in time for his first Christmas at home!

The adorable video shows little Anthony James Jackowski, now 18 months, stomping around his parent's living room - with a huge smile on his face. The tot, nicknamed AJ, was born three months early, weighing just 822grams at birth.

He survived three separate bouts of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), nine surgeries and 211 days in NICU. His parents Melissa, 41, and Anthony, 47, struggled to conceive for 10 years called the moment 'a real Christmas miracle".
