"Friends are kisses blown to us by angels."~ Author Unknown
Are they the cutest or what?Zoey was SO taken by Reid that we couldn't get her to look at the camera .. at all.Reid's mom Cheri took some pictures out in the hallway when we went for a walk and maybe she captured a few with them looking our way.Hopefully she will post them when she gets a chance.But,let me say,Reid is absolutely adorable.He does the most darling thing with his eyes .... if you ask him to give you twinkle eyes he bats his little eye lashes ever so gently but quick at the same time ... you just have to see it to appreciate it fully.I think Cheri might have thought I was a bit crazy because as she emerged from the elevator a complete stranger said "There's Reid".(We told the entire floor that Zoey's boyfriend was coming.)That stranger was our very own sweet nurse Laura. Who,I might add, would like to kidnap all the little Down syndrome children who cross her path.Just a warning to all you parents.Seriously though,it was a nice little visit.So great to meet a blogging friend in the flesh.Reid is so handsome and Cheri is just beautiful.My unshowered ,wrinkly self was a sight for sore eyes .. sorry Cheri.The visit went by far too fast and the little ones were getting antsy.Playtime is not optimum in a hospital room.
ou time to say goodbye arrived before we knew it.Before they left Cheri and Reid spoiled Zoey with gifts of a soft,cozy blanket and a darling outfit, with a fun little cd/dvd.And to top it off ...Reid's big brother Luke made Zoey a very special picture for the sippy cup they brought her.Thank you Luke.The picture is perfect and so very special.We will treasure it always.Someday I would love to meet up again with our Long Beach friends.Hopefully at a park when Miss Zoey decides she has kicked this thing.Till then,thank you Reid and Cheri.So loving of you to fight traffic and parking to spend time with us.It was certainly a highlight in our week.It will be hard to compete with that.
