The ability of their two-month-old baby to stand and walk shocked the parents.
The “strongest girl in the world” is my daughter, Terza Finn-Johnston, 31, a new parent who makes this claim in jest.
This is as a result of baby Lula’s ability to stand up at the age of 8 weeks in late January.
The child’s power was apparent to Terza and his fiancée Emily Derrick, 23, who both live in Bristol, England, as soon as they left the maternity unit.
At just five days old, Lula was able to support the weight of his own head, unlike other newborns.
It’s very remarkable to observe the parents’ disbelief when the baby stands upright at eight weeks.
According to Tezra, the baby was around a month old when he tried to sit her up to calm her down during a particularly stressful time.
However, “instead of sitting up, she just stood on my lap and didn’t bend his legs,” he asserts.
When Lula was two months old and her father was attempting to hold and support her, she was able to support her own weight after doing it repeatedly throughout the next weeks.
He told The Sun that everyone thought it was rather extraordinary how she could keep herself together even while sitting down, let alone while standing up.
Although Lula can’t walk yet, her parents are optimistic that she will soon be able to.
Mum Emily jokes that she doesn’t want her daughter to mature too rapidly like other parents.
