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

First Day Of School 2013

My baby's are growing up much too quickly.

This year John started 2nd grade and Hopie, Pre-K....and since I am a blog slacker we are now more than half way through the school year:)

Couldn't be more proud of these two.

Surgery #7 and #8

My brave boy endured two more surgeries before his 8th birthday. 

Surgery number seven was to close his G-tube site internally.  The recovery was rough but he bounced back quickly.....as usual.  Now, he has a tiny scar in place of his button and he couldn't be happier.


Surgery number eight.....and hopefully his last surgery, was to correct the position of his right eye (it was turning up and in.)  He sported a black eye for a few weeks but the pain and discomfort was minimal.  The Dr. nailed it 100% and it looks awesome.

Heath Bell


John's AMAZING baseball league (The Miracle League of Arizona) offered us Diamondback tickets, a pre game "meet and greet" in the locker room with Heath Bell, signed shirts and baseballs and some personal time with Baxter!!!!

A fun night was had by all!

We're Back In Business!!!!!

Ok. Ok.  Enough of the hate mail....I am finally back and am going to wrap up 2013 over the next couple of weeks.  Then hopefully I'll be able to stay current....I am not making any promises though:)

Up first....

My sweet baby girl isn't a baby anymore:(  We celebrated her 4th year of life with a Christmas in July birthday party, donuts for breakfast and a trip to Toys R Us.

She's off to a great start and we couldn't be more proud of her.
