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.

Teething Bites...

...literally! I really hope that this is John's last tooth to come in for awhile.........I really don't know where another one would go! He has 8 on the bottom and 7 (with number 8 cutting through as we speak) on the top. Enough already!!!!

Anyhow, the other day I went to give him a kiss and he bit my top lip.........Hard! I can't be mad though, considering I sort of taught him it. Let me explain before you think I am a crazy woman teaching her son to bite people (hmmmmm, maybe the next Mike Tyson?) You see, we always go, "Grrrrrr" and pretend like we are going to eat him up and sure enough......Mr. Smarty Pants caught on. What can I say, my son is brilliant!!!

Let me out of here!

Hey ladies (or should I say toddlers?) your Knight in Shinning Armor! TALL, dark (well, he would be dark if Mommy didn't drench him in 30SPF constantly) and most importantly, HANDSOME!

John, you are such a cutie pie! Please learn to give mommy gentle kisses instead of little nibbles!
