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

Day 3 - Disneyland!

Today definitely goes down as one of the best days I've ever had. The look on my little guys face when he saw Mickey will be etched in my heart forever.

The day started off just as beautiful as the day before.

Ash (my beautiful niece,) John and Papa watching the waves crash down (John thought it was pretty funny).....and waiting very patiently for Mommy to get ready.

Disneyland, here we come!!!

Our first ride.....It's A Small World!!!

John doesn't look too happy....but I promise he was:)



Sharing a cookie with Ash after lunch.


The highlight of our day. I am smiling now thinking back at this very moment. John and Mickey kept hugging and kissing each other.


Waiting for Dumbo!




Waiting for Dumbo AGAIN (and again!) Yes, we rode Dumbo three times.




They pulled Ashley out during the parade. You have to look closely...she's behind Goofy.

John picked out a Goofy doll for himself and got a Minnie doll for his sister.

The Teacups were a hit. He kept saying, "Faster Momma, faster!"


We ended the day (hours past his bedtime) back at the beach condo having a few licks off his humongous (John's words exactly) lollipop before heading off to bed.

This was truly one of the best days ever.

Yahoooooo!!! I've been waiting for these pics! And they are amazing. You guys look like you had a wonderful vacation. And of course Disney rocks!! The only sad thing for me is we weren't there. You know I would have been down everyday if we still lived there. I miss all of you so much.

These pics are the best! I LOVE the one of John pressing his cute face through the gate waiting for Dumbo. I couldn't stop smiling as I looked at each one. What beautiful memories you all have made together! Love it!!

Kate, I was thinking of the very same thing. How great that you got to take your sweet boy to Disney, Jill, but I am sure Kate would have been there if she could have. I am sure she was there in spirit. Where was Hope? Great shots an even better memories!

It is so great to check in and see these pictures. John and Ashley are like brother and sister, and it will be such a great memory for them. Next time little Hope will be able to attend!
We all await the next group of pictures......
