For some reason, the first couple of weeks after Levi was born, I didn't remember it. Maybe it was the hormones. Maybe it was the worry I had over his health. But ever since I was a child, I have been enchanted by people with Down syndrome. I used to think, as a parent, I could do that. I could handle that. I wonder if God will give me a child with Down syndrome, because I'd be totally okay with that.
So here I am, adoring this beautiful little girl with almond eyes. I was captivated like usual, and got lost in the moment. I was thinking about how cool she was. Thinking, "Hey, I wonder if..." Then I laughed and thought, "Oh, wait!!"
I am so glad this boy is ours.
Today, at his occupational therapy session, Levi stacked blocks. Physical therapy strengthens gross motor skills, like crawling & walking, while occupational therapy focuses on fine motor skills.
Adam is drawing people with arms and legs now! I love to have him tell me about the picture and write down what he says word for word. How cute is this? I was impressed at how well he placed the stickers to complete the picture.

I gave Adam permission to look at a dog, and the owner was very trusting. She let Adam hold the leash. It was only a matter of seconds before they both were all tangled up!
