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

Eventful Weekend

Well, we definitely had an eventful weekend......not what we had in mind though.  

Mommy was sick all weekend but thankfully recovered just in time for Johnboy to come down with a 102 fever early Sunday morning.....followed by a trip to urgent care and then an evening in the ER.  The diagnosis was a SEVERE case of strep throat......his first encounter with it.  Go big or go home, right?  I'm pretty certain that's John's motto!

Oh and to top it off....Tiko (our furry nephew) was jumping up in down with excitement because Jamie had bought him a dog bone and jumped right on John's face (he was lying on the ground) and knocked his tooth out (it wasn't a loose tooth either.)

BUT, on a positive note.....John enjoyed grape popsicles and playing with Mommy's iPhone at the hospital, staying up way past his bedtime and another visit from the tooth fairy!!!

Never a dull moment in the Birtch home!
