She turned 2! Try and resist the cuteness.....







It is going to take everything I have in me not to turn this into a blog simply about Grace. I realize that I do have three other kids, but she is just so fun and sweet and changing every day. I can't help it. She is also the only one that doesn't sass back yet, I doubt that is a coincidence.

P.S. We often forget that she is "different" than our other kids. But in other ways, I just chalk up some of her physical stuff up to the extra chromosome. In these pictures she looks EXACTLY like Lu did at this age. The sausage roll arms, the patchy, mullet white hair, the little button nose..... I have to remember that genetics plays a larger role than the Down Syndrome. You would absolutely pick the two of them out as sisters.

If there were anything in the world cuter than her, it would be the cute clothes she wears that Jane gets to inherit.

She does look so much like Lu!

I want to see the Hugh and Grace pic!! Will you email me a copy? Hugh saw Gracie's picture today and he got so excited!

She is such a beauty and reminds me so much of your Lauren girl at that age and the fun times we had together!

Suzi,

I just went to get it and it isn't there??? Those were the ones at the end of the file. When I uploaded it I just assumed that all of them were on there, but I already erased the card... I am going to look harder b/c those are the CUTEST ones..... I will be so sad if I just didn't get them on...grrr..My teacher always used to say that I "made careless mistakes".
