Pic of my Yana!
Nope, this isn't new. This was last year, but it is a picture I don't have! And look, proof that yes, she is able to stand with support all on her own! I can't wait to hold her! But boy, we need to help with that haircut! I am thinking bows or a headband. :)
Now for a bit of update info:
Yana will be 7 in March. She currently weighs 25.5 lbs. and she is 37.8 inches tall. None of her development "measurements" such as physical, emotional, social etc are above 11 months. Her lowest "grade" was 4 months! She shows preference for only one little boy who is in the crib next to hers. That makes me sad to think of leaving him behind. He is like her brother. :(
Tavi just turned 4 in November. She currently weighs 24 lbs. and is 34 inches tall. She is at 18 months for her development level. She is WALKING and TALKING a bit. Considering her prematurity, I find this amazing! Also, it was noted she enjoys being around other children, which is good!
As a comparison, Luke, who will be 4 in February weighs 32.5 lbs. and is 38.5 inches tall. He is in about the 30th percentile for his measurements. So that gives you a clue just how tiny these babies are!
On the upside, they should be able to wear my nieces hand me downs, and even some of the neutral stuff of Lukes. At least till we get their health improved!
