First Blog

Lesson learned today. You must stop bouncing to throw up. However, once you are done it is fine to start bouncing again. As I was sitting here thinking of what to write about in my first blog, I noticed my 8 month old son (who LOVES his bouncer) had just stopped bouncing for a second. I looked up just in time to see him spit up his excess supper. He did not seem to care, though, and did not even wait for me to wipe him up before resuming his bouncing. Now he is smiling and bouncing all the harder.
Ben is the sweetest baby. He was born March 20, 2008 with Down Syndrome and always has a smile on his face. His heart is good, and other than a couple of colds, has not had any other major health issues. He is truly a wonderful baby. He sleeps great and has since he was 2 months old. He rarely cries, unless he is starved, or just got run over by one of his big brothers. Developmentally he is about a month behind, but is working hard to sit up with out support and to get up on his hands and knees.
Ben's big brothers are John and Noah. They both adore him, even if they don't adore each other. They are both good students in 4th and 1st grade, and enjoy playing sports and Play Station in their spare time.
