"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." Psalm 139:13-16

She did it!!
Last night Julianne finally rolled over! She was on her tummy and rolled (in slow motion) to her back! I was so excited. Of course there haven't been any further attemps to complete that trick again. :)
The night before last Julianne had A LOT to tell her daddy after he got home from work! I guess she'd had a big day. Check out the video:
We think Julianne really should audition for the part of the Michelin Man (or baby, I guess). This girl has some serious rolls! Here she is all stretched out.
Julianne had her Ophthalmologist appointment today. It went really well and everyone loved her. She's always giving away smiles. :) Julianne even had to have her pupils dilated. They held her eyes open and sprayed them with a spray that dilated the pupils. They couldn't believe that she didn't cry. She just squeezed her eyes tightly shut, blinked a bunch of times and then flashed a big, two-toothed smile. I told them Julianne was a tough girl. The results of the exam were great! Everything basically checked out normal. This is great news as her stroke had the potential to affect her vision. They didn't see any damage to the optic nerve, she's moving her eyes together, she tracks things well, looks in all directions and is very attentive. The doctor did see some astigmatism. She said this is fairly normal for babies. Usually they'll see either some farsightedness or some astigmatism. She said this will change as her eyes grow with her body. The doctor told me that all babies should have their first eye exam between 6 and 12 months! I had no idea! She said the next time they should be seen is at 3 years old. However, she'd like to see Julianne back in 8 months to make sure that all is well with the astigmatism that she saw today. She did say that, more than likely, Julianne will end up nearsighted as she comes from two nearsighted parents. :)
Thanks so much for checking in on Julianne and, as always, thank you for the prayers. :)
