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.
Jeremiah 29.11

Goooooooo Devils!

Yes, it is 100 degrees in Arizona and yes, my son is wearing a thermal long sleeved onesie but, true fans make sacrifices. I keep thinking back to the last game we went to. It was the day after Thanksgiving and I just turned 24 weeks in my pregnancy. I was feeling great and LOVING being pregnant. And then, just 5 days later John was born. I mean, I could understand going into labor if we would have lost to UofA but we WON!!!!!

Anyhow, Jamie took the day off yesterday so I could go to work. Sure enough, John kept all his food down AND took 3 LONG naps. One of which was 3 hours. I had to wake him up from that one because I needed to give him his bath and put him down for bed an hour later. Thankfully he still went to bed at 6:00pm.

Jamie thinks it's hilarious.....he's hired!

Ava did the same thing the other day: Stacey was home, so Ava slept for an hour and a half. How come when it's just me, she's only quiet for 30 minutes?!?! What is this baby conspiracy all about?

Oh, and I LOVE John's big, healthy thighs!!! How do you resist the urge to bite them??? :)

I hope John is feeling better soon. MIne both have colds right now, but they are just about finished with them. I can't believe he goes to bed at 6pm! What's your secret? Mine go to bed between 9 and 10pm. But they do sleep right through the night, so I should count my blessings. :)
