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.

It's A...

Well, we actually found out the sex last week but didn't want to tell anyone until it was confirmed and it's a good thing...

Because for the entire week we thought we were having a Boy ( I swear I saw a little weenie!) However, today's ultrasound told us otherwise.....and what I was seeing was the umbilical cord.

We are having a baby GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JILL! I am so excited for you (although it didn't matter boy or girl, I would have been just as happy)! Maybe this gives me a good excuse to buy pink now! :)

Congratulations to ALL of you! xoxo

Girl or boy, we are truly blessed. However, pink, flowers, and ribbons are awfully special. May this little angel bring you as much joy and fond memories as you have given me...
- "Me & My Teddy Bear" dances
- Batting helmets sitting on the back of the head to protect the hair
- Grocery shopping in Mom's pantry
- Late night talks
- Hours of laughter mixed with a few tears and
- Licking crackers

Congratulations to all of you and much love, Mom

YAY....little girls are soooo much fun!
Now you'll be blessed with both a boy and a girl.
It's been neat seeing how different my girls are from my boy. They aren't even "girlie girls" but they are just SOOO different from my son.
And especially since he was born so "normal" and healthy. It was great to see what a full term baby was like! ;0)
You look so cute in that pic. How is John taking the news of another little baby coming?
