31 For 21 - #1

Okay so this means 31 blog entries for Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome).  Yep, I'm already a day behind but in my defense, I fought a migraine all day yesterday and finally gave up and went to bed.  So I'm starting a day late but I'm gonna do my best to make it up.  Hopefully, this will be a learning experience for me as I'm going to try to post a ds fact daily.  Today is an easy one - Down Syndrome is another name for Trisomy 21.  And for a cute Jackson ancedote - one day, after the kids came home from school and greeted and played with Jack, they went downstairs to play.  Jackson was quite miffed that they dared leave him with me, so he went to the stairs and KNOCKED with his little fat fist on the door!  When I opened it, (trying so hard not to fall on the floor laughing) he turned his little self around and crawled right down those steps!!  Was I proud or what?!

Here's a shot of Jack (pre-birth, of course):

And here he is on his original birthday!

Holy cow! Look at that hair! I can't imagine you with long hair, but I guess that's because I've only seen you with shorter! I just kept thinking "Who is that?" :o)

And Mr. Cutie...he had the looks from day one!

Ha Ha! When Jack started pulling the hair, it had to go! It's been almost a year and sometimes I miss it, but mostly NOT!
