March Update

In Rylyn's March update we were told that she is doing great and now weighs 15.4 lbs and is 25.5 inches long. They said she still feels pretty light when they pick her up, but they can tell in her little thighs that she's putting on a little bit of weight! About a week ago during play time, she pushed herself up to a crawl position and they thought she might start going. She was defniitely excited to get to that new position and made a little move but then went back down to her tummy. They think she's going to start soon! We are hoping that she waits until we get there to show off her skills. They also said she's been chewing on her hands a lot lately, and they can feel bumps where more teeth might start coming in. With her solid food, some days she opens her mouth up wide and scarfs it down and other days she couldn't care less about eating it. But she'll still do her little Rylyn giggle either way! The last thing we were told is the other night when she was sitting in her chair, if anyone said her name she laughed hysterically. They said she has provided much entertainment and laugher within the orphanage.


  1. Reading this post makes me laugh and cry at the same time! I miss her SO much! I know you'll love her little laugh just as much as everyone at THOGL does! I'm praying you'll get to hold her in your arms soon!!

  2. I am sure she misses you just as much. We can't wait for you to come stay with us in may!
