This weekend our family and friends came together to collect cookies for NICU nurses and staff. We then partnered together with the Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida and were able to distribute cookies to 5 Central Florida NICU's and the PCICU at Arnold Palmer Hospital. Many children with DS also spend time in the PCICU after repairing heart defects so we couldn't forget these precious individuals. Everytime our family goes back to visit, it brings back so many emotions! These nurses, doctors, and staff will always hold a special place in our hearts.
We would like to send our deepest thanks for our friends and family who helped spread cheer to these wonderful professionals this Holiday Season!

Rainy Day Haircuts

Ok, so I was bored and thought Emerson needed a trim?!? I always envisioned Emerson's first haircut to be an exciting event! Now, I actually think I'm going to have to take her to a professional to fix what I started. Maybe we'll make an event out of the "First Fixing" haircut!
