A Friend Visited Today





Kayla, from Big Blueberry Eyes, http://mdbeau.blogspot.com/ was able to come to our house with her Mommy, Michelle, today and play. It was great to meet them in person as I have been reading her blog for several months now. It is such a special connection that all of us moms of these special babies have. Before I had Ella I wasn't exactly open with people about my personal life and my feelings, but it is so easy to talk to someone who has been where you are. Kayla is the first older child I have met with Down syndrome and I am comforted in knowing that they are just as charming, sweet and feisty as they grow older! Hunter had a good time with Kayla, though I don't think he is feeling very well. The two of them went swimming, Kayla was freezing and shivering like crazy but was very determined to stay in that pool!!! Once we got the big kids all warmed up and changed Hunter fell asleep on the couch and Kayla played with Ella. It was so cute, Kayla kept bringing Ella different toys to play with and offering to share her snack with her. It was very sweet!!! Here is the only picture I got of Hunter and Kayla in together, they were hard to get to stay still!!!

We had such fun at your place! I know Kayla really enjoyed herself! Thank you again for having us over; I hope Hunter is feeling ok and that he was just tired and worn out and not coming down with something! Kayla saw the pictures this morning and kept saying "Ella!" Sorry she was a little rough with her :) It was so nice meeting you!
