John Michael enjoyed having two of his friends come over to play yesterday. Gabby came with her mom, Sheree, and Sheridan came with his mom, Lisa. It was so fun to see them interact together. Sheridan was showing off his new sitting up moves. Gabby was the charmer of the group, smiling and clapping and occasionally knocking John Michael over. He didn't seem to mind, though. John Michael stood at the piano and played a couple notes for his friends. I just love seeing him with his buddies! Melts my heart.
On a separate note... we were discussing how to identify fellow Ds bloggers at the NDSC Convention this summer. If you have ideas from previous conventions, please share. I'll soon be making a separate blog for listing names and blogs of people who would like to meet or be identified somehow at the Convention. I was just thinking how cool it would be to have a special name tag or ribbon to identify us bloggers so we might strike up a conversation. Ideas welcome!
I've been married for 20 years to my wonderful husband, Doug. I'm a Catholic SAHM to 5 children. Our 4th child, John Michael, was born in November 2007, and has opened us up to the amazing world of Down syndrome. We are grateful to God for the blessings He's given us and the journey He's put us on. When I'm not spending time with my family, I sing with RSVP, an amazing vocal group, educate on Down syndrome, have my own health and wellness business, and blog about our life.
