Plus, we have not yet had the "Your sister has Down Syndrome" talk with her. The day will come, but not just yet. At this point, all that's important is that Macy is her adorable baby sister, of whom she just adores. McKenzie being aware of her extra chromosome would not and should not change ANYTHING! I feel, as though, if we were to sit her down and have a "heart to heart" about it, her response would be "so-what's the big deal?". hehe So, really, what's the point at this point? :-)
This evening we loaded the girls up in the family truckster and headed South to BounceU for the annual D.A.D.S (Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome) Holiday Party. We had Pizza, drinks, bouncing and a great time with friends!
McKenzie, Bailey and Joe getting ready to go down the big slide!
Hi Tessa! She's just a couple months younger than Macy...they're buds :-)
I am in love with Tessa's adorable features and just love the shape of her cheeks :)
Macy, Jacob and Tessa playing patta-cake.
These girls are having a SERIOUS good time!
Not sure what Megan is saying here, but Macy thinks it's pretty interesting!
Oh Wesley (15 months), you are adorable!
Hi Vollen :-) He's jumpin' around with the big kids!
Me and Macy hangin' out...she's not quite ready to "bounce around", but she sure enjoyed watching all the other crazy kids. Some day kid, some day. and SOON!
Vollen had fun going down the big slide...what a brave little guy!
Macy and I. weeee! ? !
next it was Tessa and Wesley's turn to give it a try :-) They went down lots of times! I'm not sure who was having more fun? The babies or the mommies. Judging by these pics, I'd say it was the momma's for sure!
Vollen & Vernon
Tessa, Wes & Macy loved playing with these hoops.
It was so cute watching them play and interact with each other :-)
one minute she's happy...
...not so much...awww
momma makes everything better!
What a fun evening. We always enjoy opportunities meeting and chatting with families from our area who have little ones with Down Syndrome. It has been such a blessing forming good friendships with many of them!
