Update on Julia Faith

It's been a long time since I have been on these boards...and for that I am sorry - but Julia has been keeping me busy.

We are finally off of all oxygen and most of our medications. We've been cleared from the heart Doc, her eye surgery appears to have been successful, we've passed hearing tests in one ear and are rescheduled for the other ear in the next few weeks.

It's hard to believe that my 1lb 3oz 26 weeker will be 1year old at the end of July.

Julia is basically right on target for a 7 month old (as if she was born on her due date of November). She's learning to sit, trying to crawl and has mastered rolling all around the house! She's eating baby food great and starting to show signs of teething. Although she's still small at 23 inches 12.6 pounds, she's doing great. We are so very lucky.

Thanks to all of you for your encouragement during my pregnancy and her hospital stay...it's nice to share a happy ending with you for a change!

Well, we did it, Julia is almost one! Next Tuesday the 30th our miracle will be one, I can't believe how much has happened this year, how hard it was, how happy it's been...it's like a whirlwind.
Julia is in 6 month cloths, she's tiny! But she's crawling and pulling up and trying to walk and saying bye bye and of course Da Da...ugh! (why not Momma!) I am so proud of how far she's come...she's so special.

I hope you all are well!
