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....

7 - Months Old

What's new this month? Well, you went on your 1st. out of state train trip to visit Grandma in IL. (Pictures to come soon. Hopefully daddy took some.)

Mommy introduced you to solid foods and juice this month. Your favorite foods are Squash, carrots and applesauce. Your least favorite foods are Green Beans and sweet potatoes. You love apple juice. Feeding you is so much fun. Eating is your second favorite activity, jumping/ bouncing is still your ALL time favorite.

You learned how to hold your own bottle. Well, you will hold your own bottle ONLY when it suits you. You prefer someone else to hold the bottle for you, that is soo much easier.

Your personality is still blossoming and you learn something new with each passing day. It is such a joy to watch you exploring the world aroudn you.

It fills my heart with joy to watch you grow. It also saddens me to realize that over a 1/2  a year has passed and that time is flying by. Soon you will no longer be Mommy's baby, but rather Mommy's little boy.
