I have to confess... when I was expecting Micah, I was really looking forward to him having beautiful blue eyes like Nathan's. And maybe even more beautiful, because many kiddos with Down syndrome have Brushfield spots (small white or grayish spots in the iris).
But Micah doesn't have blue eyes like his brothers. And he doesn't have brown hair like them (though his blonde is getting darker). I've seen so many kids with Down syndrome who look a lot like their siblings. But Micah isn't one of them. That sort of makes me sad. Well, maybe what makes me sad is that he doesn't look like his brothers because he doesn't look like his father.
Yes, that's me. And lest you be tempted to think that's a halo around my head (LOL), um no... that would be the peach fuzz that grew in on my head after the dark brown hair that covered my head when I was born fell out (much to my mother's chagrin, as there was NOTHING she could do with it for the first two years of my life).
On a separate note...
MICAH TOOK HIS FIRST INDEPENDENT STEP TODAY!!!
