new photo

Here's a picture of Victoria with Joanna and Richard. Victoria is sitting in the soft vinyl chair which the physio brought yesterday. It means that she can sit up and be supported and not end up in a crumpled heap breathing in a laboured manner. Being vinyl, however, it does mean she ends up soggy on her back. Still, you can't have everything. It is a good position for her to be amused by the children and plans are afoot to create a kind of bridge thing from which toys can be suspended for her to look at, bat and perhaps hold.
Yesterday we had Viv and her husband over for dinner which was great fun - he knows everything about airoplanes - model and life-size.
Victoria will be weighed later today so I will post the results when I have them. she is looking very well at the moment and we are very thankful to the Lord for her continued health and development.
Someone recently emailed me that 'if you have to have a disability, down syndrome is the best one to have'. A fun post on a d.s. website considered what the world would be like if d.s. people were in charge. One of the points was that hugging would become much more common. it was suggested that d.s. people esp. like dressing up and food also. This means that weddings are a favoured occurance because the 'rules about hugging are temporarily suspended'!!!
