We Officially Have a Roller!

That's right! "Tummy time" is now "rolling time." I can't keep that girl on her belly! She rolled over this morning and hasn't stopped. :) It was, and is, so exciting! I had been feeling kind of down today about the developmental delays, and gagging, etc. Then God gave us a great gift in letting us see that she is progressing! It was just the encouragement I needed this morning. We're so thankful for this baby girl. Of course, I have a video:

In case you don't already know, I LOVE to take pictures of Julianne and she LOVES to ham it up for the camera (mostly). Here are the latest pictures from the mommy photo studio:

Therapy is going well. Julianne is still just doing what they call "recreational eating"...not eating for nourishment, just eating for practice. It's a slow process but she's doing well. Tomorrow is a long cardiologist visit...echo, ekg, chest x-ray and probably labs drawn. I will try to update this weekend. Thanks for all of the prayers and encouragement!

You do take the best pictures of that cutie little girl. There's no stopping her now. She is so perfect! Try not to sweat the small stuff. Good luck tomorrow. Love you all.

You can never take enough pictures......soon she'll be on the move, or at least she'll roll anywhere she wants to go... : )

Hopefully we'll see you all Sunday morning.

We love you all!!

Wow! Go Julianne!
The photos are wonderful. You could be a professional!
I'll be thinking about you @ the doctor's offices tomorrow. I remember getting overwhelmed just bringing my oldest for routine shots, let alone a barrage of tests in one afternoon. I completely admire your patience and endurance!

These pictures are great! You do take good pictures and I agree you have such a cute little subject. I was wondering what program do you use to edit your pictures? I love to take pictures too and have been looking for a great program to edit with.

Still praying for you and your family!
