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!!
