Christmas Party

Yesterday was our local Down syndrome association's annual Christmas party. This was our second year going but our first year there with Nolan as a walker. The walking made all the difference. Adam and I had fun last year, but Nolan was fairly indifferent. This year, he could walk the huge room all he wanted, and he loved every minute. He had another meeting with Santa, but he was less ok with it than he was last year. And, our favorite part was seeing so many of our friends and their families all together in one place. I'll say it again: I love our Down syndrome community!

Walk. Walk. Walk.

Uh oh. A girl.

Nolan loves his Daddy!
Love how they're both signing "cracker."

As you can see, Nolan had a blast!


  1. I wish we didn't have to miss it again but it was the only day that worked for Molly's 4th b-day party - the joy of having a birthday a week from Christmas! :)
