WARNING: so much cuteness you probaby can't take it....

This morning, I took a ridiculously long time dressing up Addison and taking cute pictures. Why did I spend an entire morning doing this? Well, for one, she seemed to really enjoy it. Two, I haven't posted pics for a couple of days. Three, I needed to do this so I would have something to look back on next week to make me smile.

Here, in all of her unedited glory, is my beautiful daughter, Addison:




yes, i know the violin is backwards...this is the only side that i could hold it up and take the picture from....we'll get the technique down later when she can hold it herself...(-:











I hope this made you smile. Some days I am simply amazed at the beauty that is present in a daughter that I once assumed would be monstrous looking. Myth #1 about children with Down Syndrome: They look funny/different. NOT TRUE. CHILDREN WITH DOWN SYNDROME ARE BEAUTIFUL. I hope this post helps show you that.

Let me know which picture is your favorite. I am always printing out the favs and putting them up on my wall...
