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

It's Official

We officially have a Kindergartner in the house!  

My little boy is growing up way too quickly.  I told him tonight that I was going to stop feeding him so he wouldn't grow any more:)  He giggled, wrapped his arms around me and said, "Momma, that would be so silly!"

I did good at his performance and graduation (only because his AMAZING teacher is moving up to Kindergarten next year and John will be in her class) but the tears came today when he said to me, "Momma, after school I am going to be a big boy because I am going to be in Kindergarten."

Wow!  I just can't believe that in a few short months my little man will be off to full day Kindergarten.  It seems like yesterday I was praying over his isolette...begging God to let him live.  We have worked so hard to get him where he is today and I could not be any prouder of him (or his baby sis.)

She is so ready for preschool!

My little graduate!

Excuse the naked baby Hopie is holding up:)

This is the best family shot we least one out of the four of us is looking at the camera!

Hopie thought she was part of the program too:)

There is nothing better than a good teacher who truly loves and cares about her students.

Cookie decorating time!
