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

Cousins sure do make the best of friends.....and ours are SOOOOOOOO good with John (and Hope of course!)

I love that all the boys go to school together and that they high five John every time they see him in the halls.  It makes this Momma proud of ALL of them.

Play Ball

We are so fortunate that Arizona has a baseball league for our little boy.  It's a league where kids of all abilities are able to play the game safely.  The field looks like a miniature major league baseball field....except the ground is cushioned to protect them if they fall.  They play the kids favorite song when they come out to bat....John choose, "I am Sexy and I Know it!!!!"  Too bad Daddy vetoed it.  Instead, he'll walk out to, "Party Rock Anthem!"

John is VERY excited for his first game and I am certain he will have the biggest cheering section!!!  

Let's go CUBS!!!!!!!!!!
