Etta is getting so big and doing SOOOOO well. She reminds me so much of Natalie at that age. You all HAVE to make it to the meetup. I have to hold this baby girl before she gets too big (and too independent haha) You are doing a wonderful job mom and dad!!!
Hi sweet Etta!
I just caught up on all of your news via the journal and you amaze me everyday!! I LOVE watching your video clips and hearing your sweet noises and seeing your sweet smile! Good job sleeping in your crib! Your nursery is so beautiful and you look like a little angel sleeping in there. I loved reading about Holland on your journal and your daddy''s note in there about "floating the lazy rivers" brought tears to my eyes. You are so blessed with a wonderful mommy and daddy, and you have brought them indescribable joy! I just love your whole family and can''t wait to see you again! I promise to get the kids down there to see you soon...if we can find gas for the cars!! :)
Hello sweet Etta! I thought I''d drop a note to let you know that I miss you and love you more than you know. You have alot fans out there and I have heard that your journal is visited muliple times a day by of many us. I just want you to know that your sweet smile helps me get through tough days and has me bouncing through good days.
I LOVE YOU,
(the coolest Aunt ever, way cooler than her sister, or anyone in the world and probably even the universe! JUST KIDDDING!! Your Aunt Kimi is pretty cool too. And all of the aunts I have are pretty darn cool as well.)
You are growing up so fast!! You are so adorable and don''t you forget that!! I LOVE & MISS so very much!! I hope I get to see you again before Christmas! Stay strong baby girl!! Remember your Aunt loves you! BESOS!
Darling Etta, you are such a big strong girl to put up with everything, poking, prodding, sticking needles AUGH! We feel for you sweetie pie. Have Mommy give you a big squeeze for us. Love you very much!
Hi little Etta!
I wanted to tell you how WONDERFUL it was to have lunch with you and your mommy today! I loved holding you and seeing your bright smile and cute wink! (yes, that''s right, you winked at me!)You are the sweetest little girl and I''m so glad you could meet me today. I''ll see you again soon and will bring Kennedy and Price with me!
We just wanted to let you know, that we are watching you grow and do amazing things even though we don''t make many responses. We love you so much, and are so proud of your Mommy and Daddy because they are such great parents.
I''m so glad that your videos work now, I''ve been wanting to see you roll over like a big girl!!!I''m so PROUD of you and how amazing you are.
Also Etta, you look so cute in your bathing suit! I love you sweet baby!
Hi Etta Honey! It looks like you had lots of fun yesterday with Grandmomma Mel. I really liked how you were sharing your smiles with her. We miss you and are already planning our trip back up to see you in October. Give your mommy and daddy a squeeze for me. (I miss them too.) Love you, Nana V
Okay, I had to come right back and sign again after looking at the Alabama slide show! First of all, that photo that involves Whit is HILARIOUS! That kid has to be in show business when he gets older. Also, there is a photo with your Nana (May) holding Etta, and I swear it looks like she is winking at Nana! Also, that swimsuit is the prettiest princess suit I have ever seen. My B on the double-comment.
So glad to hear that you met another family with a child with DS! Connecting with a family who knows where you are is so important. Hope all the upcoming appointments go well, and I am very pleased to hear that Early Intervention is so involved. Happy Birthday Nana V!
