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

Sleepy Saturday

All 3 of us were VERY sleepy today! Jamie didn't get home from work until 4:30am and the snot monster AND the tooth monster crawled into bed with John last night............and kept the 2 of us up! Anyhow, John and I loaded up the car first thing this morning and headed to Grandma and Grandpa's for the day...........I knew I'd be able to take a nap over there:)

The biggest news of the day was...........John drank water from a cup!!!!!!!! He swallowed it and all with no gaging. We're making progress!

Great news! We know what a big step that is over here in our household. Won't it be nice when the aspiration issues and feeding aversions are gone forever?!

Go, John, Go! It really looks like he's minutes from crawling, too. Great shoulder muscles on that kid, and now he's knocking back the drinks like a superstar!

Hooray for John! That's a big step and I know you're thrilled. It's been a while since I checked in and I can't get over how good he looks. So strong and I love his cheeks!
