I am the Momma of 8 children. Seven here on earth and 1 precious little Angel in Heaven. My children range in age from 2 months to 25 years. My 6 year old was born with a laundry list of complex medical conditions. He has Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome), a rare brain malformation, which resulted from a mutation of the PAX-6 gene, bilateral anophthalmia, which means that he was born without any eyes, so he is totally blind. At the age of 2 1/2 months old he had to have a tracheostomy to help aid in his breathing. He is hearing impaired, with normal hearing in his left ear and has profound deafness in his right. At 3 1/2 years he had surgery to have a Mic-Key button placed in his stomach (feeding Tube), which is mainly used to give him his medications. He also has insulin dependant diabetes and wears an insulin pump, which gives him a continuous dose of insulin. Even with his many dis"abilities," including being globally developmentally delayed, he has accomplished more than anyone would have ever believed that he could. Join us in our journey living with a Dis"Abled" child....

Brother And Me

Timmy really does love his baby brother. Even though his comment about Nate being in his bed with him was "Oh Boy!" Nate is starting to teethe. Almost everytime Timmy and Nate are placed together Nate tries to use Timmy as a teething toy.
These are two of my favorite pictures of Nate. He is 3 1/2 months old here.

Nate is definately a momma's boy. I can't get more than 6 feet away from him before he will start crying. I swear this kid must have a radar that goes off whenever I'm out of his sight. He will let NO ONE else rock him to sleep at night, not even daddy. He has a favorite rocking position. The same songs must be sung each night in "his" selected order. If I deviate from the song order or add a new song to my loong singing list, he will protest.

Nate is a high maintance little boy. He has a wonderful personality and the cutest laugh.
