WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND WE HAVE HAD...FRIDAY, WE WENT TO MY FRIEND HEATHER'S SURPRISE 30TH B-DAY PARTY AT FOX & HOUND. THANKS TO G&G HARNISCH FOR WATCHING THE KIDDOS SO THAT WE COULD ENJOY THE EVENING WITH FRIENDS! WE FINISHED OUT OUR SATURDAY BY GOING TO JEREMY'S 30TH B-DAY PARTY ('TIS THE SEASON FOR THE BIG 3-0!). OUR NIECE ERIKA WATCHED MCKENZIE AND MACY. IT WAS SOO CUTE HOW EXCITED SHE WAS TO GIVE UP HER SATURDAY NIGHT SOCIAL LIFE TO SPEND QUALITY TIME WITH HER FAVORITE NIECES :-) WHAT A GREAT GIRL!
SUNDAY, FAMILY FUNDAY!
STARTED OFF WITH NEPHEW DYLAN'S FIRST HOLY COMMUNION AT CHURCH. WAY TO GO BUDDY! THEN OFF TO THE WITT RESIDENCE TO CELEBRATE DYLAN'S MILESTONE, ALONG WITH HIS BROTHER DALTON'S 5TH
BIRTHDAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DALTON! :-)
WE BROUGHT COUSIN ANNA HOME WITH US TO PLAY AND HAVE A SLEEPOVER. THEY PLAYED FOR A
FEW HOURS BUT CRASHED PRETTY HARD WITH UNCLE JOE WHILE WATCHING VEGGIETALES :-)
UNFORTUNATELY THE SLEEPOVER ENDED EARLY AS ANNA BEGAN FEELING SICK AND YEARNING FOR HER MOMMY. POOR THING HAD A YUCKY COUGH, RUNNY NOSE AND ITCHY EYES :-(
We have been advised by Macy's pediatrician to keep her out of illnesses way. Of course, any parent of a newborn should do the same, however, due to her Down Syndrome, she is especially prone to sickness. No need to take any chances. Better to be safe than sorry! Sorry Kenzie :-(
I stumbled across this sweet poem a few moments ago out there in "blogosphere". I thought I'd take the liberty to change out a several things to customize it for our little Miss Macy. :-)
OH THE PLACES SHE WILL GO!
We are very excited to share our journey
with Little Miss Macy Lee.
She surprised us on December 28th
three weeks early.
A sweet, precious and perfect gift
from our Lord up above,
We welcome her into our lives
with Much Joy and Endless Love.
Fearfully and wonderfully made
By our God in heaven,
Instead of 46 chromosomes,
He gave her 47.
Known as Down Syndrome,
Or Trisomy 21,
The blessings Macy will bring us
Have only just begun.
We share this news with you Not out of sadness or despair, But so you will know,
We are glad you're here! This site was created to simply journal our adventures as we adjust to being a family of four :-) Joe and I were married September 21st 2002. McKenzie Lynn was born June 4th, 2007 and Macy Lee just recently joined our little family on December 28th, 2009. Our little Macy was diagnosed, at birth, with Down Syndrome. We feel blessed that God trusts in and has chosen us to love and care for Macy. She truly is an angel! So if you care to keep up on our new "life journey" feel free to check in on us, as I'm sure we'll keep this blog updated with the latest "Harnisch Happenings" :-)
