|Climbing in and out|
Yesterday Felix had a HUGE first. I was sitting outside with him while he was playing in his sandpit. He spent some time climbing in and out of it and I was amazed at how agile he is getting and how quickly he can do it now with no help from me at all. Then something fantastic happened. He was sitting on the front porch when he suddenly stood straight up from squatting without pulling himself up on anything and stood there for ten seconds. He then calmly sat back down again like he's been doing it for months. I couldn't believe my eyes. I think I held my breath the entire time. When he sat back down I cheered and clapped my hands and he excitedly copied me.

Those who regularly read my blog will know about a lady I have been speaking to who is pregnant with a baby with Down Syndrome. She has struggled over the past couple of weeks with the decision of whether or not to continue her pregnancy. I am over the moon to tell you that I got an email today and she is definitely continuing her pregnancy!!! To her, I would like to publicly welcome her to our beautiful, big family. A Community of people who love someone with Down Syndrome, and whose lives have been enriched and enhanced by them. You are about to embark on a wonderful journey. There are many who have travelled the road you are about to walk down and there will always be someone beside you. You will never be alone. Big hugs to you... I'm so happy for you!
|So much to be proud of this week. You're such a clever little man!|
