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.

Out Cold!

My little man was out like a 6:15pm!!!

Grammy and cousin Ashley babysat today. John was having so much fun and couldn't stand to miss any of the excitement....soooooooo, he only took a 15 minute nap!

Now it's time to fill you in...

*Our BIG man now weighs 26 pounds...can I get a woot woot!!!!!!

*His eyes are still looking great so we don't have to go back to Dr. Plotnik for 9 months....yahhhooooo!

* He is cruising (fearlessly) on EVERYTHING and turning from the couch to the coffee table without a problem. He is also walking (alone) while pushing his walker....he can't control his speed though and will go down face first if you're not careful.

*He'll now point to almost anything you ask him to.

Well, I think that's it for now....but, have I mentioned lately how proud I am of him?

The girls do not go to year round, but it's called a "modified year round". they usually start around the first week of Aug. and go til the middle of june.
Doesn't leave much time for summer vacations, but i don't mind cuz we get all kinds of breaks in between the school year, like 2 weeks for a fall break. 3 weeks for christmas, 2 weeks for spring break and a couple extra days here and there. It's nice.
I love their teaching ideas, too.
It's an educational research school, so they do things a bit differently than a regular public school.

waiting for some more pics of that boy of yours!
