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

July 29, 2012


How has it been three years since God blessed us (after an abdominal cerclage at twelve weeks, numerous FFN tests, weekly 17P injections, onset of preeclampsia and a ruptured uterus) with the perfect little girl??????  She is our second miracle indeed and just as wonderful as the first one!

Hopie, you light up my life and I couldn't be more proud to be your Mommy.  I love you to the moon and back!!!


A HUGE thank you to the BEST sister in the world, Auntie Alli!!!!!  She cleaned up the entire party and bathed the beauties so I could re-decorate and wrap up all the gifts from the family so my little princess could wake up on Sunday morning (her actual birthday) to more surprises!


Nothing better than hanging with Uncle Craig.....super early in the morning.


The birthday girl holding up three fingers.


Thanking her big brother for her gifts!  LOVE these two sooooo much.



All tuckered out.  It's hard work being three you know.
And for the record, my non napping daughter slept for FOUR hours right here on the couch!


John took advantage of his sleeping sister and hopped on her new scooter and took a ride.



Time to play with all of her new toys.....after she enjoyed a birthday dinner of her choice (hotdogs!)




The weekend was wonderful from start to finish!!!!

What a fun and special birthday for little Miss Hope. It is crazy how little her face has changed from her newborn picture. She is a beauty.
