Go Vikings!

My favorite Viking fans.... and, yes, I have a jersey too!

PS.....this may be the reason Kevin likes having FIVE children....more to influence towards his Vikes. It's sad really.... :)

30 Toes.....

When Grace was first born, we found out that one of the first clues that medical staff look for if they suspect Down syndrome is the toes....specifically for a gap between the first two toes.

I think we are safe to say that all three of my children with Down syndrome have this feature....



This past summer, Sam was looking at Bella's toes and asked if she was missing some toes! We had a good laugh at that one!

But no matter what, we love all 30 of those toes!
