11 weeks old...

Little Miss Jubilee had a well baby check up the other day and she is in the 90% for height and 50% for weight...our little string bean :) measuring 11lbs. 9ozs. and 24.5". The ped. said in all his years of practice, he's never seen a 2 month old so strong. She did not want to be messed with and she made that very clear. Whenever he'd come near her with his stethoscope, she'd actually push it away! She did show off by holding her head up like an old pro and scooting forward on her tummy.

Little miss Jubilee continues to amazes us everyday. I could just sit and stare at her all day long. I just love our sweet girlie soooo much!!! How my heart wishes more families would not let fear keep them from experiencing this amazing beauty...the beauty of adoption...the beauty of a miracle child....so many are not seeing the amazing treasures that the Lord has right before them...treasures that they are missing.  The thought that we almost missed THIS...our beautiful babes...brings me to tears. I am so thankful the Lord kept pursuing our hearts...kept showing us that what He had for us was far more amazing than we could have ever imagined.

Hi
My name is Jenna and I came across your site. Jubilee is a real precious and special earthly angel. She is beautiful and has a pretty smile. I love that pic. She is so cute! I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and I have 12 other diagnosis. I also have developmental delays. I love it when people sign my guestbook. www.miraclechamp.webs.com

Happy 11th wk - wow how time has flown by. She is such a precious gift and you are right if the fear could just be erased - how many precious little ones would have forever families to love them too...

Hi,
What a beautiful family you have! I found your blog through a friend of mine, whom you recently bought your baby girl some clothes from off Craigslist. :) She made sure to tell me about you because 1) we are waiting for a match to make my son a big brother, and 2) my son, who just turned 5, has SPD. So I hopped on over to check things out! I can't wait to read more of your blog!

I've visited your blog before but I was trying to find you to let you know you were the winning bidder on our adoption auction at www.anoceansizedlove.blogspot.com.
I don't have an e-mail address to contact you. Feel free to e-mail me at sarahviera@yahoo.com for info or visit the blog.
Such a beautiful family! I need to find the time to read over your SPD post. My son was diagnosed with SPD last fall. I wish I had seen that weighted blanket giveaway! Anyway, thanks so much for bidding and I hope to visit the blog again really soon! -Sarah
