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

First Day Of School & 1 Year Check Up

Yesterday was my big guys first day of school......his last first day of preschool (sniff sniff.)  I am hoping and praying this year goes by VERY slowly because I am not ready to send him off to Kindergarten.  I love, love, love his preschool program...the teachers are AMAZING and it is a very welcoming and nurturing environment....where everyone is excepting of others differences.  And to top it of, John LOVES it!

Here is my handsome little man getting ready to head out the door to school!

Finding his cubie.

John and Mrs. Meggan....BEST. TEACHER. EVER.

Hopie wishing she could join in the fun.

Little did this smiley little girl know that we were headed to the get shots:)

Having a quick snack.

Poor little peanut cried her eyes out during her shots AND all the way home:(

Anyhow, here are her 12 month stats...

Weight: 20 pounds 14 ounces (50%)

Height: 29 inches (50%)

Head Circumference: Big!!!!!!

All in all it was a good day.....minus the shots!
