Shannon Is An Aunt Again

This is Collin Jake Shannon's new nephew born June 23 weighing 8 lbs and 5 oz.
She wanted to hold him but there was just too many people there and no place for her to sit down and hold him.
We were at the hospital all day waiting on him to be born and Shannon did real good. She is aunt to seven now.

My " Arte Y Pico " From Denise Bailey

I have been awarded this by Denise at KKl Primitives Blog.
This is what Denise had to say;
Carol's personal blog dedicated to her daughter Shannon, who has Down Syndrome.
I enjoy reading about life with Shannon. One particular post that had me smiling was when Shannon's dad cut her bangs and forgot to put the scissors out of reach. Like any other child, Shannon got the scissors and proceeded to give herself a 'little' trim on the top as well, and according to Carol, there wasn't much hair left!
Shannon may be a 'special needs child' but she is happy, well adjusted, won 'student of the month' at school and had her photo in the newspaper.
She's special because she has the capacity to love everyone and everyone loves her.
It comes across in Carol's writing, how much her child means to her.
I appreiciate this very much.
