Wow!! What a Difference

This first video was taken on Tuesday morning. Hannah could barely sit up and often tumbled over. You may also see that she's not really too sure yet what to do with the stacking cups. I showed her how to hold them and she was quite able to do so but that was about all!

All I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!

Fast forward to today....just 4 days later and check out the changes!!! My sweet baby girl is sitting so much taller and stronger. Her little neck is stronger and look at her play with the toys!

Truly it is an amazing transformation to watch these beautiful little ones grow and change and learn before my very eyes!! So cool to see it in person after reading other's stories but most amazing is to see the changes in my own precious daughter!!!

  5. With each day and every picture you can see her so much more relaxed and happy! As a grandparent, I was so thrilled to see your parents and your friend hold her for the first time. She really likes them already! She is opening up like the delicate little flower she is. So very precious ---

  10. Soooo cute! Wow to the difference in just a week! Brings back memories of Tate in China. Same thing, clueless as to the toys and wobbly sitting. She was 9.5 months. One week, total change.

    You look and sound soooooo happy! Hannah HAPPY!

  16. She does look like she is growing before our eyes! All the attention, movement, hugging, holding and activity shows how much babies need this instead of lying in a crib all day.
    She will be so much fun once you are home! She's a doll!

  18. It was the same with our daughter, everything was so overwhelming for her in those first few days with us and it caused her to regress but then as she became more comfortable with us she started to do things she'd clearly been able to do for a while but had shut down as a reaction to all the scary changes taking place.

  23. Not to discount any great parenting on your part, but often children at adoption are in such shock etc that their bodies simply shut down for a period of time ... and that as they become accustomed to their new life their bodies remember again how to sit, stand, etc ... so sometimes what seems simply amazing is just a child getting back to where they were pre-adoption, pre-traumatic episode.
