We can hardly believe that it's already October! So much has happened this past year. Many of you know that October is Down syndrome awareness month and the past 2 years I have participated in 31 for 21 where I commit to blog each day to raise awareness. This year is no different. I will be posting basic information, fun stories, pictures and our own experience raise 2 amazing children with Down syndrome.
Malachi is now 2 and full of attitude! He loves to answer questions with "yeah" or "no." He is officially walking and the joy he feels shines through his smile. He is proud, I LOVE to watch that!! Brain surgery this summer went great and he is recovering quickly. We see less and less side effects of his stroke and are hopeful that he will make a full recovery. We will go back to Boston in the summer of 2011 for a follow up angiogram to see if the surgery was successful.
Elijah will be 1 next month! Yikes! He is the most content child ever!! His smiles and giggles happen more and more and his personality is coming out. He talks all the time and eats even more than that!! This past week he has begun crawling and will no longer stay in one place. His adoption was finalized in Aug. and we were blessed enough to have my mom, brother and best friends there.
Thats all for now. Please check back daily and let me know you were here.
Ps. For those of you that want to share you love for Elijah and Malachi on Facebook, feel free to save the following images to you desktop and use them as your profile picture.
