Leighton always gets complimented on her beauty. Usually people say it with a bit of surprise in their voice. The best is that she really likes how she looks. She loves any reflection of her cute self. Kids with Down syndrome are actually really beautiful to me. I honestly had limited interaction with people who had Down syndrome before I had this little miss. Not enough to get to know much about them or see them for who they truly were. I started noticing babies, kids, teenagers, adults who had Down syndrome a lot when I was pregnant with Leighton.
I'm glad I get the chance now to get to know these amazing people.
