Joy is such a pretty girl. I loved these pictures – her face is dirty in the one, but it is so good for her face. I had to post it! :)
Have I mentioned Joy LOVES and adores bread. It’s a good thing she isn’t the one with Celiac Disease. Pretending on the phone – another love of hers :)
Bella’s paramedics are so sweet with Joy – they give her rides! I pray this is the only way you EVER ride on one of these my baby.
Our latest accomplishments – drinking from an open cup! WAHOO! And then from therapy, sorting.

I had some fun pics of Joy to post –but I am in shock today. A very sweet and HEALTHY little girl, Carly, with DS passed away unexpectantly. I had to grab my Joy and squeeze her. How I love this little girl! She is the joy that she is named for. I am so grateful for her in my life. I love you baby.

This was so cool – a vibrating pencil. She was fascinated!
Her daily viewing of Ponyo.
I admit it. I am a coward. Joy had never played with play-doh until yesterday in therapy. She enjoyed it, though. :)
Joy adores her sister!
Miss Kris left us yesterday. She headed back to college. We love you Kris!

Oh and happy news! I found a preschool for Joy. It is close by and has an excellent reputation. I went by with Joy and loved the director and the teacher. They haven’t had a child with disabilities there in 10 years, but they are willing to try – wahoo! We are going to put her with the older 2’s (she has a summer birthday and will just be 3). I am thrilled about that – she’ll get some good peer modeling. She’ll go 3 days a week M/W/F from 9 to 2:30. Yeah for Joy! Yeah for Me! Yeah for Cypress Creek Christian Preschool!

Getting ready for eye drops
Waiting for dilating drops to work
Getting ready for the doc
The results? Far Sighted, Astigmatism.
He gave me a script for glasses but did not promise me she’ll want to wear them! :) We’ll see. He says that if she were a normally developing kid, he probably wouldn’t put her in glasses, but since she has DS, she has difficulty focusing. At this point she is down, right on top of her papers to color. We’ll give it a try and see how it goes.
