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

So In Love...

...with my 2 kids!

John is loving school and has a really nice group of kids in his class. They are all around the same age (3 and 4 years old) so he doesn't look like a little peanut this year. Myself and another mom signed up to be room moms.....we are in charge of the class parties!!!!!!!!!! It's going to be a GREAT year!

Little Miss. Hope came home from the hospital weighing 4 pounds 12 ounces and as of today she weighs 6 pounds 15 ounces.....we are going to have a 7 pounder this weekend!!!!! She is eating every 3 hours and will go 4 hours at night. I NEVER thought 4 hours of sleep would feel so good:)

Jamie and I are adjusting well. It's definitely a lot of work having 2 children but we couldn't have asked for a better life. We are blessed beyond words and praise God daily for our wonderful kids.

Praise God is right!

2 kids is a huge adjustment though....way harder than just "double the work"
