Look What We Found..........



A FRIEND WHO LIVES IN THE SAME CITY!!!!! Most of you have heard me whine about not being able to find any little ones with Down syndrome in my area. I mean I have had to travel hundreds of miles for Ella to see her friends. Not anymore!! (Although I still want to see my far away friends too). Last spring at one of Emma's soccer games I was talking with another parent and she told me that she had a friend with a baby with Ds. I gave her my phone number and asked her to pass it on to her friend. Well, days, weeks and even months passed and I never heard from her. So this past Sunday, out of the blue, she called me!!! Turns out she only lives 2 miles from me!!! How exciting is that. So yesterday, Hannah and her mom Cheryl came over for a visit. Isn't Hannah adorable!!! She is almost 9 months old. Her mom and I hit it off great and Ella and Hannah did pretty good too. Of course, Hannah just sat there all sweet and innocent with a constant smile and Ella circled her like prey. Once in a while Ella would reach out to "touch" her "gently". She might have only pushed her down once or twice. But I think she likes her. I know I do!!






I finally got a picture that shows Ella's new teeth. It's not a pretty picture but you can see them. She is also getting one on the bottom in the center.....yay!!


Still no results at the time of this post!!

Love those famous faces of sweet Ella Grace.

Of course, you already know, but I'll tell you again anyway. We are praying for a good report from the doctor.

I am so glad you found some local friends! They are so cute together! So how many teeth does Ella have now? Mattie has about nine I believe. She has been working on getting her molars.

keeping Ella in our prayers.

GRRRR, these results are taking forever!!
Oh my, Ella's new little friend Hannah is adorable! I cracked up at "Ella circled her like prey" now that I know the little stinker I can see her being just that... an adorable stinker! While Hannah sat there innocently wondering 'Who this little girl who keeps crinkling her nose and makeing faces at me' is! LOL!
Kiss that face for me, and make sure she is making her 'crinkly' face when you do it!!
