Joey's 2 Year-old Photos

We had local photographer, Michelle Marrone, take Joey's 2 year-old photos in Old Town Sacramento. It was a blast, and the pictures came out great. Here are a few (ok a lot) of my favorites.

Thanks again Michelle...we had a blast and we love the pictures!

Birthday Cake Done Right!

Joey's second birthday was a blast. (I will try and post pictures of the party later) but for now...check him out showing us how to do birthday cake right.
This was at party number 1 with his friends at Funtastic.

And then on his actual birthday, we had to get him another cake.

And if you think he got into the cupcakes at his party...wait to you see what he did with this cake!

Warning...these get messy!

Yes...he wiped a handful down his face!

By the time he was done there was icing in the carpet...

Dripping down the wall...

But look at that face!

He was having so much fun!

The new header is just a teaser. We had some pictures taken in Old Sacramento for Joey's 2nd Birthday by Michelle Marrone. She is awesome! cannot wait to share more!

Happy 2nd Birthday!

Two years ago today our bundle of joy surprised us...five weeks early...and changed our world forever! For twelve hours after he was born we had no idea he had Down syndrome. He was our first baby and we had no idea that he looked any different from any other newborn.
And even after we found out about the Ds the next morning...we accepted it pretty quickly...and now...much like in those 12 hours after he was born...when we are not going to doctors appointments and therapies... we rarely think about or even "see" his Ds. He is simply our beautiful baby boy!
It is amazing how much he has grown and changed in two years! We had a party for him on Sunday. Many of his friends were there. I will have to post more pics of the party later. But here he is wearing, I mean enjoying his cupcakes.
We love you little man and are so proud of all the strides you have made in two years! More to come on that later as well...but for now Happy 2nd Birthday Joey!
