Buddy Walk 2010 in Pictures

There are no words to describe how absolutely joyous it feels to know the depth of the loving people we were surrounded by on Saturday, October 9, 2010.

I don't think even a panoramic camera could've captured all of Cami's Crew!

If Cami wasn't, well, Cami, then I am afraid to think of all of the little things as parents we would be taking for granted. But, thanks to that magical extra 21st chromosome, we push forward, day by day, celebrating the minute, the small, the big, and the gigantic accomplishments of Cameran as if they are each a milestone that all children's parents celebrate.

Sitting up on soft AND HARD surfaces (as of the weekend). CHECK.

Reaching up when you say "Up", and not just for clothing. CHECK.

Craftily taking off both socks, jammie bottoms, and diaper tabs. CHECK.

Rocking the 4 point crawl stance like she is a sprinter ready to take off at a race. CHECK.

Maneuvering through the house in her walker that she walks bounds like Tigger in. CHECK.
There are so many more things that are exciting right now in little miss Cami's world. Right now she is fascinated with her two puppies (the fake ones that sing and say colors). They make her light up in a way that exudes radiance from her tiny little face.

But enough of that. Back to the Buddy Walk, which is what this post is supposed to be about....

Our little buddy, Caleb, did an awesome job leading the Crew around the trail, holding Cami's sign proudly!

Both sets of grandparents came!!!

Oh, and not to toot my own horn or anything, but we raised over $4,000 in support of our local Ds association, and in doing so, scored a "top fundraiser" prize of a season family pass to the Baltimore Aquarium, AND I am also the proud winner of a raffle prize....Not the hot air balloon ride, not the Signing Times DVD set, not the $50 gift card to Olive Garden.....wait for it.....I won a 3 month gym pass! I guess it really is time to slim down!
