A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I met a gal in a restaurant with a little guy with Ds. Well today, Haden and his mom came over for a little playdate. He is almost 15 months old and so a little over 3 months younger than Ella. It was so fun to watch them interact. He was shy at first as once again, Ella circled her prey. Eventually he started moving around in his little tummy scoot way and she kind of followed. There were a few times when they actually interacted with each other but most of it was just kind of hanging out near each other. Of course, getting Ella to sit still for a head on picture was almost impossible and then getting them to both smile wasn't going to happen at all!! Ella isn't really ever around kids her own age, typical or not, so it was really exciting for her to be able to see another little person like herself.
