Nichole and her Chickenpox

I hope you took a good look at the first picture of Nichole. Not only because she is beautiful, but to remind you that she usually does look like that.

However, for the last couple of days, she has been looking like this.

My sweet baby girl has chickenpox and it is so sad. Andy and I look at her and we feel like crying for her. They say that children with Down syndrome have lower immune systems. in this case, I hope this is not true. Ellie is already on the mend and Nichole started getting spots two days after Ellie got hers. We are hoping that Nichole's worst day was today, and that tomorrow there are no more new spots!

(I am only posting pictures of Nichole because Ellie said she is too embarrassed to have me post her pictures here. Nichole, poor girl, has no say in this yet. Someday though, she might make me take these pictures down)

And one last look to remind you of the beautiful face waiting behind the poxes!
