New Photos!

We had pictures done today of the girls for Halloween. Unfortunately Olivia broke down after one picture so Alaina stepped up and did the remaining poses so we could meet the six pose minimum. Alaina was great and completed the photo shoot without a tear in sight. I'm going to hold back the Halloween picture until the day so their costumes can be a surprise!

Here is a picture of Alaina at 3 months. Can you believe how much she has grown in this short amount of time? She has put on a ton of weight and is much stronger following her heart repair. She has been doing so well that with agreement from all her doctors she had her g-tube removed today. Hooray Alaina! This is such a big step for my little girl and I'm so proud of how far she has come.

Olivia's birthday pictures from June. This little one is looking all grown up too!

Papa and Gigi Visit and Our 1st Buddy Walk

Papa and Gigi came to visit a couple weeks ago. It was so much fun seeing them again and getting a chance to catch up. We miss you guys already! If you look closely Alaina is blowing a raspberry in this picture, it is one of her favorite games to play with people.

We went to our 1st Buddy Walk in Raleigh this past weekend. The Buddy Walk is an event to help raise awareness of Down syndrome. There was tons of fun stuff for the kids to do, great food, and it was nice to meet other families who came out with their kids.

Alaina in her Buddy Walk t-shirt. The smallest size they had was 2t so just a bit too big, but she looks super cute in it!

6 Months

Well Alaina made it to 6 months and I can't believe how well she is doing. She is still eating great and has even started solid baby foods. Alaina also sat by herself for the first time today long enough for me to take a picture. =)

We all went to the County fair friday night and met up with Olivia's friend Alex and her parents. It was great with lots of rides for the little ones. Look at those smiles!
