We celebrated Nichole's Birthday with family and some friends that have truly become like family to us. Nichole is loved by so many people.
When Nichole was born, I quickly realized that the way we dealt with her diagnosis, would pave the way for how others would look at her. I decided, a year ago, that I would share my daughter. I knew that as everyone else got to know her, they would fall in love with her and see the beauty of her life, with an extra chromosome and all.
I would say that we have a wonderful "family" that celebrates her life with us. A "family" that is able to see the blessings that have come packaged in this little baby. A "family" that without a doubt would say babies with Down syndrome are the sweetest babies (and Ellie too!). A "family" that has blessed us in return.
Thank you, to all of you, for showering our family with love. We are so thankful for you, and we love you all, very much. You will forever be in our hearts, and you will forever be part of our family.

Nichole was not so sure about her cake, so mommy had to help her eat it. She loved it!

Grandma Chachi loves Nichole.

So do her aunties, Ale and Luisa (Lindsey is in the picture too, she is the most fantastic babysitter, and an auntie too)

And here area some pictures of Nichole's (and ours) new family)
Lindsey and Connie Glandon (we missed the rest of the family)

Grandpa Ken and Grandma Darla

Randy and Marilyn, who watch Nichole every Wednesday so I can be involved with youth group.
