She added: "Before he was born, it was really hard hearing all the time that he wasn't going to make it, and even when he was born that we might not get to take him home.
"But we got through it by saying, 'no, he's made it this far, lets just support him'.
"We were so positive and kept saying that we would fight for him."
Mr Taylor added: "I had never ever seen a baby that small - I didn't know babies could be that small.
"I kept saying to Katie that everything would be ok and he would be fine, but it wasn't until I saw him that I realised how serious things were.
"I think that was the most scared I have ever been, but it was also a relief to see him.
