In medical literature, babies with Trisomy 18 are "incompatible with life." Our precious son, Aaron, is defying the odds and not only living, but thriving and loving his life. This is an effort to share his joy in his journey. Like the little purple pansy, he is tiny, but strong and brightens his corner of the world.

With all the other kids, the refrain was, "They grow up too fast!" Finally we have a baby that is taking things slowly. It is so fun to really enjoy each little milestone, except they're really big milestones. Tonight while playing with Aaron, he grasped a new one, literally!
We were playing with some beaded keychains Gramma Brown brought for him. As I touched the top of his left hand, it caught his attention.
He rotated his hand to touch and then grasp it.
He's absolutely fascinated by the small toy!
As I pulled it back, he wanted it closer again.
He pulled it closer and then back out, studying it all the time.
After about ten minutes, it was time to look for something else to play with.
It's the little things that end up being such big events. I am so grateful for the opportunity to slow down and watch all these milestones that I somehow missed before.
