Our journey through a prenatal Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) diagnosis and beyond

I wish it were possible to recognize at the beginning of our life’s story what an incredible journey we are truly on. If so, I would have sat down years ago and begun documenting all the ordinary and extraordinary events in this amazing life I have been blessed with. Sometimes, though, it may take just one more thing to open your eyes into the beauty of the life you have led and causes you to pause and truly count the blessings that are now so many they will never be enumerated.

If you are just joining us, please go back to September 2012 to get caught up.

2 months!

Time flies when you are having fun. Or sleep deprived, apparently!

It feels nearly impossible that Owen has been here for 2 months already. Yet it also seems like he has been with us forever.

He is growing like crazy! We go for his official check up this week (boo shots). But at his appointment last week he weighed 12 and 1/2 pounds! And if you have seen him lately, you might suggest half that weight is in his kissy cheeks! He is a healthy little one, that is for sure, just like his siblings.  His petechiae has cleared up completely!  Thank goodness.

We had a good weekend and the weather was much nicer. On Friday it snowed all day, coming down in big beautiful flakes. It looked like we lived in a snow globe. Beautiful!

This weekend we are going to check out our local Gigi's Playhouse, so I am excited about that and making more local connections.
