A Trisomy 18 Journey

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain. -- Vivian Greene

Time: In and Out

This week marks another milestone. Julia is 37 weeks old, which means she has been here as long as I was pregnant with her. I know it may not sound like much, but when we were told we would only have days with her, 37 weeks seems like a long time! Although she's still a tiny sweet pea, we have noticed a lot of changes in her in the past 37 weeks. She has gained a few pounds and inches, she has a lot more hair, she smiles a lot, she eats a lot more, she looks around and seems to pay attention to things, she loves to hear Sydney talk, she wears bigger clothes and diapers (barely), she cries less in the car, she plays with her hands, she comforts herself, she makes different sounds, she can support her head a little bit at a time. She's taking her time, but she is moving forward and learning new things. And she continues to amaze us and everyone who meets her. Happy 37 weeks, my sweet Julia.
