This is the amazing story of our micro preemie, John Craig. He was born on November 30, 2005 at 24 weeks and 5 days gestation. He weighed 1 pound 8 ounces and was 12 inches long. John is a true miracle and an inspiration to all that meet him!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.

Big Screen

Remember that awesome big screen Papa and Daddy built for Johnboy's birthday party?  Well, our handy Daddy surprised us and hung it in the bedroom last night....

Sooooooo, Saturday night was spent watching the D-backs game and making some epic shadow puppets and Sunday morning we spent cuddling in bed watching, The Pirate Fairy.

Life is good.  Now off to the backyard to swim and BBQ.

14 more days until summer break....but who's counting?!?!

Team John 2014

My friends and family NEVER cease to amaze me and I am beyond grateful for each and every one of them.  

For the 7th year in a row, Team John has surpassed their annual goal ($2,400 for our 24 weeker) and walked (with the biggest team ever) in honor of John and the million of other babies born to soon.

Thank you just isn't enough!!!!!!















And the best part of the day....
My boy WALKED across the finish line all by himself!!!!!

I will post a video soon.

Saturday Mornings!

I love Saturday morning baseball games.  The smile on John's face when he's playing ball is priceless.....and the smile on Hope's face from eating lots of sugar from the snack bar is priceless too.

The Miracle League of Arizona is such a blessing to so many kids.
