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

Blue Eyed Girl!

Love, love, love this beautiful girl!!!!

Who do you think she looks like?  We constantly go back and fourth.....I think she looks like Jamie (and his Mom and brother) and Jamie thinks she looks like me (must be the Lindley chubby cheeks...hee hee!)

Regardless, she is beautiful inside and out and I feel privileged to be her Mommy!

Dress Up

My mom got John a HUGE dress up (hats and wigs) tub for his birthday.  It seriously is the greatest idea/gift EVER.  Both kids love it!

Today Hopie had the pleasure of eating lunch with, "The Cat in the Hat!"

More Answered Prayers

This boy of mine has eliminated the word "can't" from the dictionary and continues to prove every doctor wrong!!!!

What amazing thing has he done now you ask?  

Well let me tell you... he has tested at grade level for his age with NO cognitive delays what so ever and he's qualified for REGULAR Kindergarten!!!!!!!!

Thankfully the wonderful school/school district we are in (which just so happens to be the same school Mommy taught at AND attended when she was a kid) also qualified him for a one-on-one aide and an adaptive PE teacher.  EVERYTHING I had hoped for.

This definitely goes down as one of the happiest days of my life!  

God continues to listen and answer our prayers.

A Little Late

How in the world did I miss a post about my big guys birthday party?  Hmmmmmmm, maybe the 2 week long rotavirus (they each had it 7 days...back to back)  that infected my children played a factor!

Anyhow, it was a fabulous day with good friends and family.

Better late than never, right?
