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

Be Mine!

Happy 1st (real) Valentine's Day Bubba! Your Daddy and I love you very much and are so very proud of you. You'll always be our little Valentine!

We had some good laughs last Valentines Day.........believe or not, we did have some fun in the NICU. Anyhow, Jessica (John's day primary), Kimya, and I decided to make a clay mold of John's hands and feet and give it to Jamie for Valentine's. So, Jessica gets the clay all mixed up and we put John's hands in it............only for him to grab a handful of it! He then proceeds to get it ALL over him and his isolette. Now remember, he's still in the NICU attached to leads and everything so we couldn't just plop him in the tub. Needless to say that mold didn't turn out too well. I did however keep it......I laugh every time I look at it. We ended making up some new clay mix and just put his feet in it. It is actually sitting right here on the shelf in the office.....lots of memories!

Where on earth did you find that shirt? I looked EVERYWHERE for a shirt that said heart breaker for Cooper! I had to settle for one that said "I love Mommy."

Your little cutie looks like he had a great Valentine's day! He is such a little sweetheart- you better watch out, he's going to be quite the ladies man!

As usual, John has stolen my heart!! I think all those little girls out there better watch out once John gets seriously mobile!

Happy Valentines Day and I hope that everyone enjoyed the brownies!
