Down to earth:)

at the end of summer a Down syndrome group called Down to earth located in oshkosh invited us to their annual picnic, we have gone the last three years and it's always a good time:)
lilly and max loved the music... they both really got into it!

the weather was beautiful, and we were able to meet a few new families from their area.

in august lilly had eye surgery,  i was a little nervous about that. i think anytime any of you children have to go under it’s a scary thing. you might be wondering what was wrong with lilly's eyes? well she has/had intermittent exotropia it's nothing serious(it's funny because before having max i thought all these little thing were so very serious) it's just that the muscles in her eyes aren't always working together so, the dr. loosens up the lower muscles attached to her eyes:) but like i said it's not really the surgery that worried me, it was more the putting to sleep:(

lilly before surgery:)

nick and lilly:)

lilly after surgery:(
she did fabulous! her eyes were a little sore and was having double vision for about month.  she needed to ware a patch on one eye for two hours every other day.  now she is great!  everything went perfect:)

over the summer nick spent time with just lilly and max up at the cottage that his family rents, and i was able to spend some quality one on one time up north with my youngest:) it was just what we needed, we took naps together, played, and went for quite walks.   i was really able to appreciate the age of this little one of mine:)
