Major accomplishment!

Yesterday Charli was on her monkey mat on her side, and she rolled over on to her belly again (she's done this a few times before). She got her right hand stuck under her body as she has done in the past. THIS TIME tho she worked SO HARD, she scrunched her knees up and put her butt in the air, lifted her head and was looking around for a solution, and kind of tipped to the left a bit and pulled her hand out!!!!!!!!!! This was HUGE for her. She hadn't been able to figure out how to get that arm out before, and I didn't touch her at all! I was SO PROUD OF HER! What a big day for us!!

The mighty monkey rocks!

I'll try and update later...someone is up from a nap now!

Wow! That's great!! If it's ok, I'm going to link your blog to mine?

I'd love to hear more about Charli's story!

Me again... I just read Charli's full story, and some of the facts sound so much like Hannah! Hannah was also 6 lb 11 oz, 19 inches, and spent two weeks in the NICU because of low platelets (and had platelet transfusion). Our girls were destined for us to meet!
