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

We're Here

We're here and all doing well.....just having too much fun and not enough time to post!

John has been talking up a storm.....his words are much more clear and he's using sentences too. I must add, he's very polite.....he says excuse me when he burps or toots (and laughs) and when asked if he needs to go to his room (for throwing a temper tantrum) he'll reply, no thank you! His voice is music to my ears. My heart melts every time he says, I love you sooooooooo much!!!!!

And look at him ride his bike!!!!!!! He's getting better at it and can actually pedal a few times.

We are proud of him as always!

Sissy is our bundle of joy. This kid is ALWAYS happy and ALWAYS smiling!

She loves to roll from her back to her belly but gets frustrated because she can't roll back (which is weird because when she first started rolling it was from tummy to back.) She began eating food at 6 months and loves her veggies.....fruit, not so much! And she is the worlds best sleeper.....definitely took after her Momma.

We are so proud of her too!

Happy Valentines Day!

I cannot believe it has already been a year since the announcement of our pregnancy..........and now my precious girl is 6 months old!!!

All is well in the Birtch home. We are enjoying the beautiful AZ weather and spending as much time outside as possible.

Daddy taught John how to open the mailbox.
Once opened he sticks his head inside and says, "Hello! Anybody there?"
Hope is wondering what in the world I am giving here!
Not sure if she liked the green peas....not much went in her mouth:)
