"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.

Just added your button to our blog. Hospital stays can be tough, but there is also so much joy that comes out of them. For me, I am always grateful for the one on one time with my daughter. Blessings, Susie

how cute these two are together. I can see that little Miss Zoey was smitten, and why not - Reid is one handsome little guy.

Very nice indeed for everyone. And that nurse sounds like a precious jewel - just the one you want around your little ones if they have to be on the 4th floor. of that hospital

Take care

We cannot wait to meet up at the park when she kicks this thing! With the entirety of round 3 almost over...she is on her way! Heather seeing her little eyes in person convinced me all the more that she is hiding little secrets behind her twinkles...secrets of all that she can do, she is just waiting for the right time to unveil it all, like her deciding to show you her sitting skills right there in the midst of chemo. She is so beautiful, so strong, and just so darn loveable...just like her mom!

It was wonderful to finally meet you...Reid I believe is smitten...I was able to get some cute pictures of him brushing her hair with his hand!...And thank you for giving Luke a shout out! When I read him what you wrote and told him you posted the picture he drew for Zoey's sippy cup he came over to the computer with a huge smile...saying in a "cool guy" kind of voice..."That's what I was afraid of"...that it would be posted for all to see...yet his smiled revealed that secretly that is exactly what he hoped would happen! :)

And to all the nurses taking care of Zoey...thank you for taking such good care of her and all the Needhams!

How cute is he? I'm glad you got a visitor to pass the time. I can't wait until we come out. Besides the fact that we love Cali. Give her a kiss from Jax.

That is so wonderful...love the photos of the both of them. They are both so precious! What a great break from the waiting, and all the rest that comes with the 4th floor. Glad it was able to happen for both of you. We send our love to all of you...always!
