Julia almost sitting up!!!!

Oh my gosh!  I am so excited : )  I came into our family room just a few minutes ago and out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw our 4 year old daughter, Regan, playing in Julia's new play area we set up for her.  The reason I thought this was Regan, was because what I saw was someone in a "sitting up" position.  But it wasn't.....it was Julia!!!  She still had her hands on the ground, propping herself in this position, but WOW....go Julia!  I managed to run and get my camera really fast and got two pictures before she rolled over to her back.  I have shown pictures here on our blog of Julia up on all fours, but she had not yet started heading to the sitting up position.   She has been loving this play pen area with colorful foam mat and lots of toys from Beyond Play.  Our Julia is getting stronger and stronger everyday.  Oh, and before I forget.....she is now 28 lbs. 2 oz.  That's up 12 lbs. 10 oz. from her weight of 15 lbs. 8 oz. when came home with her almost 6 1/2 months ago.  She has also gone from 18m clothes to 3T.  We are amazed.  Praise the Lord!

  15. I agree with the previous poster; she looks like a totally different child. Her hair is blonder from being outside instead of cooped up in that unfathomably horrible crib, she's filling out and she is CATCHING UP! Such a sweet pea!

  16. Happened across your blog via another adoption blog. Have enjoyed watching the progress that Julia and Aaron have made from when you first saw them in the orphanage. How wonderful for Julia. It is just more proof of what love and attention of family can do. Would love to hear what the orphanage thinks when they see the wonderful progress these children make, after they (the orphanage) feel they are hopeless for achieving any quality of life.
