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

Lazy Days

We had a very uneventful weekend.....and loved every minute of it.  John was beat from a full week of school (plus OT, ST, PT and MT) so we decided to watch movies and go swimming all weekend long.  A perfect ending to a LONG week.

I took these pictures last night.  Our nightly routine consists of baths, books, prayers and bed.  We alternate rooms (for books and prayers) each night....last night was John's night.  He always says prayers for all of us and they usually go something like this...

"Thank you God for my Mommy and my Daddy and for my Mommy and my Daddy and I love you God.  Amen. " Then I chime in and say, "What about sissy?"  And he says, "Oh ya, and Hopie and Paige (and whoever else he feels like mentioning.  For example, his toys, TV shows, teachers, therapists, iPad, etc.  He giggles the entire time too.)  And we lived happily ever after. Amen. " 

Last night after he said Hopie and Paige, he added.....and Mrs. Holman and the gummy bears she gave me.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this kid....and sissy too!!!!!!!!
