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.

Okay....I am back in business!

Here's the short and sweet version of our latest happenings...

My sweet little boy turned 4 years old on the 30th. We had a 2 week celebration....and he deserved (and enjoyed) every second of it.

His birthday party was held at, Imagination Avenue, where he and 25 (yes, you read that right...this boy is popular) of his friends enjoyed an afternoon of imaginary play, pizza, ice cream and cake.

John wanted a Diego cake and Auntie Tracy didn't disappoint!!!!
He LOVED his cake!
The whole crew eating pizza...
And cake and ice cream!
John and his buddies from preschool!!!
Hippotherapy is back in session....John loves riding his horse, Misty.
One of John's new goals at school is to be able to write his name legibly.....I think he's mastered it already. What do you think?
John decided he was going to take his shirt off and put Daddy's on.
Sibling love
Kisses for his Sissy
Daddy took John out for the day while Mommy recovered from Black Friday shopping. When they got home John kept saying, "Momma Camel!"

Hope is talking and laughing like crazy. She weighed 12.9 pounds at her 4 month check up!!!

John can stand unassisted while singing, Jingle Bells and Frosty the Snowman (that's a long time) and can walk from the couch to the foot stool ALL BY HIMSELF (about 4-6 steps!) He weighed in at 32 pounds at his 4 year check up.

Phew...I think I am caught up now!

What an inspiration! He is so cute. You can just see is determination all over his face. I feel I now have something to look forwards to with Kenny! Thank you for sharing the story of your little guy with us!
