Happy "Down Syndrome Awareness" Month

"Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars
I have had a few friends make reference to this song lately, so I thought it only appropriate to share it on the blog. It just makes my heart HOT with happiness! Thanks Angie for sharing your and Graci's favorite song with me and "dedicating" it to us :-) And thanks to Shelli our Early Intervention services coordinator for sending us this adorable video! It is SO amazing!

here are just a few of my favorite lyrics (I bolded my definite faves):
Oh her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Yeah I know, I know
When I compliment her
She wont believe me
And its so, its so
Sad to think she don't see what I see

But every time she asks me do I look okay
I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

So...happy Down Down Syndrome Awareness Month to you all. May we go out of our way just a little more this month and allow ourselves some time to reflect, to sit back and truly appreciate the beauty of each and every one of God's creations. We are all miracles in our own right. Especially our precious angel's who have that extra special (21st) chromosome or "designer genes" if you will :-)

I wish I had more time...but I don't...gotta RUN! Later I will share with you some EXCITING milestones that Macy has CONQUERED! What an all-star :-) She has had an extremely eventful week...
