Six Months Ago....

We went to a lobby on the 30th floor of our hotel in China and little Juliana was placed in our arms. She was quiet and reserved. I see now she was in shock, not really sure how to respond. This same quiet girl is the one who this morning woke me up by climbing over me to get between dh and I. She was full of smiles, and kisses, and wanted nothing more than to have the attention of her parents.

In a short six months she has gone from barely sitting up to walking, running at times, always on the go. She is full of energy and the quietness has gone out the window at home. She is still shy with others, but with us she is full of all types of new noises. She has a head of crazy hair, and has finally learned to eat solid foods.


Last night she was dancing with her sisters. She was laughing and trying to twirl in circles like the older girls. Soon we were all laughing at her attempts to dance. What joy she has brought our family. It is hard to believe it has only been six months...

It will be 6 months for us tomorrow - unbelievable. We feel like we won the lottery! Your little one has changed so much. It is amazing.
BTW - is your dear husband at the San Diego conference next week? I'll be there on Tuesday.

Hi KHM! No San Diego conference for me this year. I've been out of the GIS industry for five or six years and don't have a good excuse to go. I enjoyed my time at ESRI and sure miss So Cal!
