|Snuggles with his|
Auntie x x x
Felix had us laughing our heads off yesterday. He pulled a tissue out of the box, held it to his nose and then made a massive snorting noise! It was hilarious. I have no idea where he got that from. I don't think anyone in the family blows their nose quite that loudly but he's obviously heard it from somewhere. Such a funny kid! Today, I blew a raspberry on the palm of Felix's hand. He laughed and laughed, then he put the palm of his hand to his own mouth and did what I had just done; blew a huge raspberry. He's such a quick learner!
|My new Felix tattoo|
with a DS butterfly
I had been planning my tattoo for quite a while. Of course, I had to get a Felix the Cat but I also wanted something to represent Down Syndrome in some way. I thought of the Down Syndrome butterfly, but wanted something a bit more simple. I ended up choosing a basic butterfly to match with Felix the Cat and got a little bit of blue and yellow around it (the colours of Down Syndrome awareness). I'm very happy with it, and Felix thought it was great too :)
|Caught with his hand|
Recently I blogged about a precious little boy, the same age as Felix, who doesn't have long to live. His Mum has made a 'Bucket List' of 'firsts' to experience with Ryan before he passes away. I just wanted to share some of the things Ryan's Mum has already been able to cross of her list.
- He got his first (rub on) tattoo
- He held a puppy (brought into his hospital room)
- He had his first beer (rootbeer) on his 21 month birthday!
- He did his first painting
The most recent 'first' was extra cool. He 'drove' his first (pedal) car along the hospital hallway which was fun, but the best bit is that he actually got 'pulled over' by a real Police Officer and given his first speeding ticket!! This was all organised by a friend of the family. How awesome that people are pulling together to give Ryan and his family some really precious memories together.
