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

So In Love

Oh my gosh.....I am just so in love with these two little ones (I mean, one big and one little.)  I couldn't be more proud of either one of them.  Motherhood is the GREATEST gift in the world and I am beyond thankful that God choose me to be the Mommy of John and Hope.

Anyhow, John is talking up a storm and if you haven't heard his voice before you are definitely missing out:)  It is the sweetest sound I have ever heard....especially since we didn't know if he'd ever be able to talk.

So, this morning John says to me, "Momma sit with me and we color together.  I going to draw Hopa. First, she has a big head.  Then a little hair.  Then ears.  Then eyes and a month...and a body and arms and legs."

And when I picked him up from PT today I could tell he had been crying:(  He said, "Momma, I fall backwards and hit my head.  I have tears.  It hurt a little but I fine."

Here is the picture he drew of Hope!
