The Graduate

Yesterday, Delilah graduated from The Bell Center. For those of you not familiar, The Bell Center is a wonderful Early Intervention program that Delilah has been attending since January 2011. The staff and volunteers are some of the most amazing people I have had the pleasure of meeting. They truly love their job. We are so lucky to have such an amazing program in Birmingham. We are also lucky that Graduation doesn't mean goodbye...just yet. Delilah will be attending a summer session. Here are some pics from her big day:

Dude...Delilah will be three in a little over a month. You know how I always create a scrapbook for her, and have it printed in time for her birthday. Well...guess who dropped the ball?!?! This girl! In the past 11 months, I have completed 3 layouts. That's right. ONLY 3!!! AHHH!!!!! (Please excuse the excessive punctuation.) Tonight I finally got the motivation to get to work. Nothing like a tight deadline to get the creative juices flowing! Anyhow, here is the layout I completed tonight:  

11 months after the fact, I finally created her birthday layout. Pathetic! 
4 down. Only 24+ to go! Hopefully I can finish in time. Wish me luck!

Sassy Sitting

This week, Delilah and I took care of Addie's dog, Sassy. Basically, we went over to let her out, love on her, and give her treats. Well, at least, that is what I did. Delilah took it upon herself to keep Addie's playhouse and trampoline in tip top shape. She couldn't decided what she wanted to play with most, so she kept going back and forth between the two. Sassy and I just sat back and watched the action. 

Cutest playhouse ever!!!
Being silly!
This girl is always on the phone!!!
Obviously she is in love with both. They are both conveniently available for purchase at Sam's. Thinking one or both may have to be her birthday present this year.

Don't forget, May is Prader-Willi Syndrome Awareness Month. Help us make a cure a reality by donating to my Virtual One SMALL Step Walk today!

PWS Awareness Month

It is May 1st, which means the start of Prader-Willi Awareness month. I wanted to do something special to help bring awareness to PWS, and possibly some much needed Research funds. I had originally intended to plan another One SMALL Step walk. Unfortunately, with John's TDY and other circumstances, it just wasn't in the cards. Luckily, I have the option to host Virtually. That's right, folks. From the comfort of your own home, you can participate in a One SMALL Step walk. Can it get any better than that? 

So my challenge to you, during the month of May, help me spread the word about PWS. Let people know about our Virtual Walk. Facebook, Twitter, email, and Blog about it. If you have the means, please donate, even if it is only $1 or $5.  Every dollar counts!
