Two little princesses

Two little girls had fun dressing up like princesses the other day. We even curled hair, put on lip gloss, and sprayed perfume for the occasion.
























































One of my favorite parts of Ava is this little fat pad on the back of her neck, typical in people with Down Syndrome. It's cute to look at but it sure makes it difficult to keep head bands on! Look how well she is drinking out of a sippy cup all by herself!

And aren't those the cutest feet ever? She is leaning up against the ottoman here but she is able to stand barefoot now, something she couldn't do before. Remember her aversion to carpet and weight bearing? How things have changed.

Oh my gosh, could they be any cuter? That is the most precious moment ever! BTW ... I'm getting ready to bestow an award upon you on my blog. :)

They are so precious, look at that hair! So pretty. :o) I can only see three of the pictures for some reason.

What a precious pair of fairy tale princesses! How wonderful to have such royalty in your "palace", too...they are beautiful.

And look at Ava's rosy cheeks, and those sturdy little feet! What a long road they have "walked" over this last wonderful year - and how many new roads are now there, just waiting to be explored in the years to come. Princess Hope is a wonderful companion and teacher for Princess Ava...

Congratulations to the King and Queen and other Princess and Princes, too ;-)

Best wishes to the Royal Family,
Susan in Ky
