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

What's New?

What's new in the Birtch household?

John

*He loves to dance and can shake his booty pretty darn good!!!!! I'll post a video soon.

*He is talking very well now. I just can't get enough of that sweet little voice.

*We only have one person in front of us on the wait list for swim lessons. I am excited because it's a special needs program...one on one. I will also be able to be in the water with Hope during her lesson...which is at the same time.

*My parents are taking John on his first camping trip in June. He is SOOOOOOOOOO excited.

Hope

*She is officially army crawling....and all over the place.

*She has two bottom teeth and I think the top ones are on their way.

*Her voice is VERY loud....John is not a fan of that:)

*My baby girl sleeps 12 hours at night and still takes 2 naps....yahoooooo!

As you can see, everything is going very well in the Birtch home. John only has seven more days of school and then it's summer break!!!!!!!

It sounds like you all are doing great!! That's awesome to hear!! Carter just finished pre-school today and is ecstatic!! We will be moving to Gilbert in the next few weeks so we'll be 30 minutes closer to you now. We should get the boys together soon!! What days work with your work schedule and John's therapy schedule??

We got it at Costco during Christmas time. It is great! Exactly like a doll house but it is half police station and half fire station.
