But as we all know, I have changed a lot in the last two years and this year I was ready to celebrate! In fact as we started the walk I immediately teared up and started feeling sobby because I was so proud of our family and the fact that we WERE here to celebrate.
My friend who also has a baby with Down syndrome also walked with us. Her son is still pretty young so when I told her about the Buddy Walk I asked if she wanted to join our team or walk as their own group. Had I known anyone that first year I would have loved to join their team so it wasn't just Daddy and I walking with the boys. They joined our team and I loved having them. I adore her son (and her other kids) and it's fun to share an event like this with someone who gets it!

It was a wonderful first real experience. There was so much love everywhere and we just had a great time. It is definitely something we will be doing from now on. Oh and for being one of the first teams to raise $2000 we won an ipad. Not to shabby for first timers huh?
