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!


  1. Precious girl! I hope you get to bring both your new daughters home soon!


  2. Oh my friend, she is absolutely PRECIOUS!!!! Teeny tiny little angel. Yep--the Lord has given you teeny little ones, but the joy is going to come when you see, before your very eyes, them blossom and grow! THAT is exciting. I can hardly wait to watch from afar :)

    Please pray for us--we are trying to make a HUGE decision. Exciting, but scary.

    Love you, friend.

  3. Thank you all!

    Adeye, I will be praying. I have a feeling... But who knows!? :)

  4. That's amazing! I know how much it meant to you to get that!

  5. She is Beautiful!So happy you got an update on the girls.They will blossom so much when they get in their Mama's arms.

  6. Oh she's beautiful! What a cutie.

  7. How exciting to have something new about your little ladies! All our kiddo's seem to come home teeny-tiny. Isaac was 22 lbs. when we brought him he's 31 :) How happy I am for you guys!!! I can't wait to watch them just bloom! :D
