Happy 2nd Birthday!

Two years ago today our bundle of joy surprised us...five weeks early...and changed our world forever! For twelve hours after he was born we had no idea he had Down syndrome. He was our first baby and we had no idea that he looked any different from any other newborn.
And even after we found out about the Ds the next morning...we accepted it pretty quickly...and now...much like in those 12 hours after he was born...when we are not going to doctors appointments and therapies... we rarely think about or even "see" his Ds. He is simply our beautiful baby boy!
It is amazing how much he has grown and changed in two years! We had a party for him on Sunday. Many of his friends were there. I will have to post more pics of the party later. But here he is wearing, I mean enjoying his cupcakes.
We love you little man and are so proud of all the strides you have made in two years! More to come on that later as well...but for now Happy 2nd Birthday Joey!
