We All Love Babies!!

And this little guy is completely, utterly, totally adorable!!!

Hop on over to visit Chris at Mothering by the Seat of My Pants. Chris has three kids - and her youngest, John, was born with Trisomy 21. Chris's blog is heartfelt and real - a wonderful perspective of this journey many of us are taking upon learning our children have Down syndrome.

When I meet new parents, I always encourage them to write, write, write - because it is an amazing thing to look back at your initial thoughts and feelings even a year or two into the journey, and to see how much you have grown and learned and evolved as you have come to fall hopelessly in love with your little one.

Chris is getting her feet planted on the path, and you can tell by her words that she is introspective and thoughtful, and that she will cherish this experience.

Thanks to one of my bestest buddies, LauraQ, for pointing me her way!!!

Betsy, thank you so much for the kind words! I too thank Laura because I found you via her blog as well!

In fact, your blogs were two that I read regularly right after John was born. It was so helpful to me to be able to see what life with older child who have T21 might be like.

Now I know every journey is different, but I feel that in a way we can serve as a compass to each other. Reading about Paige, has helped me, more than once, find my way when I have gotten a bit off track.

Hope you are doing well.
