My Baby Sister, by Cara Cassady

Saturday, October 08, 2005 @ 3:19 PM
I have a baby sister named Maggie. She is cute and funny and silly. SHe has blue eyes, and chubby legs and cheeks, and a flat nose. Maggie has some problems. She has something called Down syndrome. It means she looks different and will be slow learning things. Down syndrome is not contagious. She also has a heart defect. A normal heart has four chambers. Hers has two. Maggie is going to have to have surgery to correct her heart. She likes it when you have her pretend to hit your face, it makes her laugh. She doesn't like her carseat with the straps. I love her very much. It is fun to play with my baby sister.
