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

WOOT WOOT!!! THAT'S GREAT NEWS!! After all, supplementing isn't all that bad is it?! It's nice to know that Carter gets all he "needs" through supplementing.... Austin, on the other hand, won't touch any veggie - looking at them even make him queezy and I worry all the time about him not getting all he needs. :) WAY TO GO JOHN!! We need to get together!! You'll have to let me know what your summer schedule is like! We're pretty flexible.

Hey there, I think I remember reading that John's on a blenderized diet when you feed him through his g-tube. I mentioned to Romy's GI that I wanted to try doing that, but he was so against it. How did you convince John's GI to go for it? Also, is there a certain recipe you use?
