March photos - Micah

This is what Micah's feeding tube looked like before getting his new MIC-Key button. He had a button when he first got his G-tube in Feb 08. When he needed a GJ-tube, he could no longer have the low-profile button because he wasn't big enough yet. So he had this awful thing since last May. When he wasn't being fed he still had this ugly foley sticking out of him.

But now he's big enough for a GJ MIC-Key button:

First tooth at 14mos. (and yes, his glasses really are that dirty).

One of the "features" of Down syndrome is hypotonia so Micah is incredibly flexible. It gets better, but I don't have any others caught on film.

Lovin' the bath!
