The Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas [DSACT] offers a monthly playgroup for children ages 0-5 years with DS and their siblings. For one reason or another, we have never been able to attend Ink Dots until yesterday. The expressions on Ellie's face say it all.
|Can you spy Ellie?|
|Shake Baby Shake|
Rat-A-Tat-Tots, a local Austin business, provided a free class to the youngsters. Many of whom had a fabulous time with "creative movement" and exploring rhythm through music. Of course being a December Ink Dot, the music was mostly festive such as Jingle Bells and the Dreidel Song.

Ellie was a little young for the crafts and cookie decorating, but I made a nice Christmas tree out of those foam stickers and stuck it onto her wall just above the dresser. It has made changing her diaper much easier as the glittery foam snowflakes and ornaments distract her.
|Gypsy Bear. Look, she is even showing off her Buddha bellie|
|Looks like I need to get her a scarf|
As you can see, Andrew used the camera. I said he was the one who wanted it! We tried a different lens this go around and as you can see, we are still getting used to it.
|See the girl with the striped leggings? Ellie kept trying to grab her pants.|
