It’s becoming more and more apparent that Ella likes music.  

We went to a wedding on Saturday and she loved the post ceremony entertainment of singer and keyboard player.  By the end of the third song she was in the tent with them, did a bit of dancing with the singer but decided the keyboard was much more her thing…

He was very encouraging of her interest and even let her have a go (so the guests were treated to a version of ‘My Funny Valentine’ with quite a few bum notes!!)… 

Then as the newly wedded couple took to the dance floor, Ella had to be physically restrained by daddy for the whole of the first dance.  

She then stole the show with her dancing and didn’t stop until she literally fell asleep about 10pm! 

Too dark for lots of pics but I’ll leave you with a couple from our walk around Blagdon Lake on Sunday morning…

Our first baby, Ella Mary, was born at the end of November 2010. We were shocked to find out soon after her birth that she has Down's Syndrome. I was determined from the start that Down's Syndrome will never define Ella or what she is able to do. We will provide for her everything she needs to become the child and the person she deserves to be. There will be hard times ahead.... there are already many hard times behind us. But I already know that the good times will always outweigh the hard times. She has taught me so much in such a short time and seeing life from a new perspective is a privilege that not many of us get the chance to experience.
