life and times of a family with a little man with designer genes
A Little Something Extra
Thursday, July 10, 2008
This is how Nathan looked before his first dose of Benadryl after a trip to the doctor. The prevailing theory is a mango allergy. Bummer. Dried mangos have been called "candy" by Nathan. Here's hoping the hives go away soon!
Welcome to our family blog. We have three boys: Nathan (7), Micah (4), and Matthew (3). Nathan is our energetic, sports fanatic first-born. Micah is our charming little guy, who happens to have an extra 21st chromosome (aka Down syndrome) and multiple associated health issues. Matthew is our big-boy-wanna-be. I started this blog the day after we found out that Micah has designer genes (Trisomy 21, aka Down syndrome). We've been through a lot of ups and downs (and a lot of time in the hospital), but God is faithful and continues to show His love toward us.
