August has been a pretty busy, beach, baby showers, and trying to keep Jack well. He was put on antibiotics for the first time a couple of weeks ago and now the cough and runny nose is back! We pretty much expected this due to day care...which he is doing really well with!!! He goes to Ms. Tammy's house 2-3 days a week and has adjusted well. There are about 5-6 kids there and so far so good!!! He really needs the interaction with the other kids and we can already tell he is picking some things up. Tonight is the CMDSS excited...will post pics soon!!

Not cooperating with pic session!!

He loves his Hill!!

Say a little prayer

Please pray for little Liam. He is 2 months old and just underwent repair of his heart. He was born with an AV canal defect. He is still on the ventilator and really needs your prayers. Liam needs for his heart and lungs to get stronger so he can come off the vent. So please, please keep Liam and his parents in your prayers. As a mother, I cannot ever imagine dealing with something like this and it breaks my heart to know what little Liam has, is and will go through...PRAY.

Sunday Fun

The church took all of the kids to Gaddis Pizza and to the carousel in Meridian on Sunday. Luckily Jack had been fever free for a couple of days so he was able to go. The kids had a blast! We will definitely have to do it again. Jack was in awe of the gameroom at the pizza place. He literally touched everything in there. We were a little hesitant about all the commotion and the noises scaring him, but since he knew where all the sounds were coming from he was good to go!

Kat with the kids

He was not to crazy about this seat...he did better riding than sitting!


Paisley and Jack

Running around the game room

We will definitely take him back : )

Then it was off to the carousel. Jack was not to sure about it at first...he had to warm up to the idea!
Hanging close to Grammie

He came around and loved it!

...even started to look a little bored.

Eating their cotton candy afterwards, which none of them liked!

CMDSS Gala 2009

It is time again for the Central Mississippi Down Sydrome Society Gala. It is being held at Luckett Lodge on August 29th. There will be a silent auction, the premiere of the 2010 CMDSS calendar, entertainment by Hunter and the Gators and Marion & Gary Silber will be taking photos again at a special price to benefit CMDSS. Tickets are $50 per person in advance and $75 at the door.

My family and I had a great time last year and would love for anyone to join us this year!!! The silent auction was so much fun with great things to bid on...2 night stay at the Beau, football tickets, pottery, photo session with Marion & Gary, gift certificates to yummy restaurants and so much more! There was also dinner and dancing : ) We also have great family portraits from the gala taken by Gary Silber. Jeramy and I had a wonderful time and were very proud that CMDSS showcased Jack and others with DS with such respect, positivity and class.

Tickets can be purchased at or by contacting Shanna Lumpkin 601 487 6218 or 601 953 1340.
