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.

The Things He Says

As you know, we were told that John would never talk due to the severity and location of his brain bleed.  So as you can imagine, every word out of his mouth is music to our ears.......and boy is he funny.  I absolutely LOVE his sense of humor (he got that from his Papa Lindley.)  I have no idea where he comes up with these things.

At any rate, I need to write down some of the things he says so I never forget them...

John:  "Mommy, repeat after me."
Mommy:  "Okay!"
John:  "I totally rock!!!"

Mommy:  "John, do you know the difference between a boy and a girl?"
John:  "Ya, boys wear a hat."

Mommy:  "John, what do you want to be when you grow up?"
John:  "A doctor so I can make people feel better.  Sissy is going to be a hammer so she can work just like Daddy."

He also told me this morning that his music teacher is not mean or mad.  Hahahaha!  And my all time favorite was literally made me (and my BFF) tear up.....

Auntie Brittany was sitting on the couch with John talking about his day and what not.  John mentioned that his Daddy ordered him two new smurfs and Britt said, "Wow, your Daddy is super Dad."  John said, "No, he's not super Dad.  He's just Dad."  And then there was a pause and he looks at Britt and says," And he's my best friend."
