Happy New Year''s eve eve! We miss you. It was great to see you and your Mom & Dad and share your first Christmakkah with you! It was fun holding you and snuggling you! While holding you, you sure did love standing up. Your legs are very strong missy!
I love you very very much! I think about you all the time and when I do I smile so big that I must look like I chipmunk. I am excited to have you experience the holidays in Headland. It''s what dreams are made of. I can''t wait to hold you and kiss you. I love you sweet girl!
Love the pictures! You are all so cute! Especially that little bundle of joy who is getting more and more personable with each day. She will be grabbing that camera one of these days and turning it on you, haha. Love you all very much and can hardly wait to see you next week.
My sweet little honey bun. You look like you are having a blast on your vacation to Panama. It''s nice to see you experiencing all of the places that your Mommy, Aunt Kimi and I have enjoyed together. It makes me feel so warm inside to see you playing with your Panama family. Ito looks as proud as a peacock! I love you so very much!
The coolest Aunt ever,
(okay, Kimi is cool too)
Your great grandma and I just watched your latest videos and loved the belly kisses the best! Mommy sure does know how to make you giggle. Nana said to tell your granddad that he looks like he is keeping a good grip on you when he is holding you. She said to tell you too that she really likes it when you''re squealing. It reminds her of your mommy when she was your age. We miss you and are glad you are having a good time in Panama. The earings are so cute...just precious, according to Nana.
Etta May your are the cutest baby in the whole world!!! You are so adorable in your costumes too! Your smile makes my day! I can''t wait til I see you again! Take care of your momma for me! i love you, lovebug!!!
You are such a cutie in your Halloween costumes. I love them both. You are so adorable as a Pea in the Pod! And in your little Ghost outfit!
We enjoy keeping up with all your progress and your special events.
Hey Pea-Pod! What a wonderful Halloween costume. Leave it to your Mom and Dad to find the perfect one. Your ghost outfit was very cute too and reminded me of the time your mommy went out trick or treating in a ghost outfit. I''ll try to find one of the photos for you!
This week coming up is a big week for you...your first plane ride and trip to Panama. Lito and Lita will be smothering you with kisses and giving you big hugs soon. I''ll talk to you before you leave, but hope you enjoy the trip and get Mommy to take lots of photos.
Happy Halloween you guys! You are so cute. Rylee and I love to watch your videos and look at your pictures. We can''t believe you are so big already! We are also very impressed with how many things you can do.
We hope you post some pictures of your mommy, daddy and Etta pumpkins.
What a sweet girl you are! I''m glad that you went on the hike with Mommy & Daddy. It looks like the day was so beautiful. I especially like the photo of you touching t he moss on t he tree. It looks so soft. Just like you. We miss you and your smiles, but are SO thankful t hat Mommy and Daddy keep this journal up to date for us. I think I am going to buy a camera for our computer so I can see you and talk to you more often. Much love, Nana V & Pops
OMG she is soooooo adorable!!! I can''t wait to meet you guys! Her little expressions and gestures remind me so much of Alyssa. They will have so much fun drooling together while Natalie runs laps around them and tries to lay on them to give kisses. hahahaha
hey sweet girl, we were glad to see you, mommy, and daddy Sun. You are growing up. I love your new pictures. With the flower in your hair, all you need is a hula skirt, and you would be the cutest hula girl ever. Have fun on your walk this weekend, wish we could come too, but we will be out of town. We went to the site and sent support though, what a worthy cause, and positive organization. Love you, Uncle KJ, Aunt Lori, and your cousins
Oh you SWEET Darlin'' - we hope your little legs aren''t sore from those mean ol'' shots. We''re sure Mommy and Daddy will kiss the pain away. Speaking of Mommy and Daddy - HAPPY 4TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY to them. Today they have been married 4 whole years and they are blessed to have YOU Etta May to share in their lives, as we all are. Keep growin sweetheart so you can help Daddy paddle the canoe, but not too fast so Mommy has lots of cuddle time. Love you ALL.
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,

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!
It was so great seeing you! I am missing you so very much already and your momma! You smell so sweet and your are just soooooooooo adorable! I am very lucky to have you as a niece. Want you to know i will always be here for you and love you with all my heart. I can''t wait to see you again. We will have to plan a trip real soon!! Love you, Kimi
