Three years ago, I was asked to be a Pilot Parent through the Arc, for a family that had just found out they were having a baby with Down Syndrome.  Guiding them through what they should expect after their sweet baby girl was born.  She came early, and had a heart defect, and spent some time in the NICU.   But once she was home, she did amazingly well. 
This weekend was her THIRD birthday! We were invited to her birthday, along with celebrating her big brothers birthday, who turned 6!  We celebrated at Chuch E Cheese.  It was Mayson's first time ever being there.  ( I like to stay away from that place!)  And to tell you the truth, I had no idea how she would react to such a chaotic place.  She LOVED it though! 

Especially the Pizza-3 pieces of it!

The birthday girl loved it too!  Isn't her new pixie hair cut cute?

Gotta love going for a ride with Chuck E!

Playing a little wack a ball with big sis!

Mayson LOVED the show!

And amazingly enough, she LOVED Chuck E!

She ran right up to him and gave him a big hug!

There was a little birthday dancing.....

and singing too!!

Here is the birthday boy!

The birthday girl with her new dolly from Mayson.  She wears glasses so we had to get her a dolly with Glasses!!

The birthday girl enjoying her cake!!  And let me tell you, she thoroughly enjoyed that cake!!!!
Down syndrome has brought so many wonderful people into our life.  We are grateful for our second family and being able to enjoy special moments like this!
