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.

Good Start

The kids slept great last night, woke up happy and hungry and ready to start their day.  I have a feeling it's going to be a good week:)

And since I haven't really updated much about John's progress since his SDR surgery, here goes....

He's doing fabulous.  His legs and feet are much more flexible.  He is 100% more sturdy and get this....he's gained 6 pounds.  Can I get a woot woot?!?!  Prior to surgery his weight stayed around 33-34 pounds for what seemed like forever.  His pediatrician said he was burning so many calories fighting against the spasticity in his legs.  So now that the spasticity is gone his muscles aren't working as hard and he's packing on the lb.'s.  He's still one of the smaller ones in his class but he definitely isn't a pip squeak.  I think he's just perfect!

Love my 40 pounder!!!!!!!!!  And my 25 pounder too!!!!!!!

I swear my baby boy looks like he's ten years old in this did that happen?  Time, please slow down!!!
