Emery's First Birthday!

My little girl is ONE!  It is hard to believe that it has already been a year.  What a year it has been!  There have been many emotional days filled with tears of joy and sadness.  These days there are lots of happy days.  Emery is doing wonderful!  Emery is commando crawling (she has been since 9 months) , climbs up on things including her brother, she smiles all of the time, she waves hello & goodbye, and she is finally sitting up all by herself.  We are so proud of her!  We still do not know exactly what the future holds for her but we definitely know it will be a very bright future.  Emery is one determined little girl and she does not let Down Syndrome get her down.  Thank you to all our friends and family for your thoughts and prayers during this last year.

We celebrated Emery's first birthday three different times in three different cities.  The first celebration was in Austin with my family.  We went to Dave & Busters for dinner and of course Carson loved playing games.

 The second celebration was on Emery's actual birthday, September 8.  We were in Hartford, Connecticut, with my aunt and cousins.

 The third and final celebration was in Midland with her cousins.  This was the first time for Emery to have birthday cake.  She loved it, just like her brother and cousins did!!
