Happy 6th Birthday Jenelle!


Six years ago today our sweet little girl made her way into the world and into our hearts. We are so blessed to have her in our lives, and for all that she has accomplished. Here are some recent photos to share.

This photo was taken Sunday afternoon on Jenelle's favorite ride at Disneyland - the tram! We went to Disneyland after participating in the CHOC Walk earlier that morning. Not the smile we got last year, but then again it had been a long day and she was worn out.




Here are the kids at the pumpkin patch last Saturday. Jenelle is wearing her new "chewelery", which is a device to help keep her from biting her arms and shirt. She really likes it and is using it appropriately.



Always ready to pose for the camera!




Last night, I made cup cakes for Jenelle to share with her classmates. Today the typical students will be in her class for inclusion. This is the first time I have ever made cup cakes for Jenelle... simply because with her improved eating skills, she can actually eat them now! Of course, Jenelle's favorite is chocolate.




And here is one of the family at the crack of dawn watching the sun rise shortly before the beginning of the CHOC/Disneyland Walk in the park last Sunday. Thanks to all who sponsored our team, and to the family for being a good sport to wake up at 5:30!



Happy Birthday Princess Boo!

We love you!

Happy Birthday Jenelle! I'm glad you guys got some chewelry! They didn't have the cloth ones when we got our, so we'll have to get more now! Caitlyn loves the fabric feel in her mouth!

Happy belated Birthday to your liitle one - I love that the "typical" kids joined her class instead of the opposite, I wish my son's class did that.
