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

Daddy and John did a lot of playing today so I could take a much needed nap. When I woke up this is what I found.....

The next time I checked on John I found him watching the LSU game. Now, there would be some serious problems if I found him watching the U of A game!!!!

Eating pears.....I mean attempting to eat pears.

Sitting in his Bumbo seat. His neck muscles still aren't very strong so he looks like a little bobble head.

We have a plumber in the house!

John is finally sleeping in his own bedroom.....with us camped out in the guest room across the hall:) He has been sleeping in a crib in our room for the past 6 months. Yes, I said 6 months. Can you believe he will be 6 months adjusted tomorrow? Anyhow, we were skeptical about putting him in his room because we have a split floor plan and his room is on the other side of the house. With all of his vomiting at night we are constantly getting up and checking on him. It made it much easier when he was in our room. However, the crib in our room was getting too small. He looked like a little pea in it when we brought him home and now if he turns sideways his head touches one end and his toes touch the other......a good sign that he needs to be in his own crib.

Weight check is...........15 pounds 3 ounces!

I am loving all of the pictures (especially the plumber crack one....that can definately be used for blackmail down the road!). I sounds like John is doing great in the weight gain dept. 15lbs 3oz is wonderful!
