A Little Something Extra

31 for 21... who does he look like?

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!!!

Micah might look more like you but I see the other boys in him. My sisters and I don't look a like a first glance but as you keep looking you find features that look a like.

jennie, that is amazing how much he takes after you:) i can tell that max takes more after my side of the family too, lilly and i can tell baby grey look like nick and his side. i am so happy that little max looks more like my side... at least one of my three take a little after me:) but i do know how you feel, i'm praying that baby greys blue eyes stay, so he will have the same as max and i know he already has the same nose as lilly... it would be a little of both to tie them all together. anyways, you are so super blessed that all three of your boys are so beautiful:) oh, and congrats to micah on the steps, when i read that on fb i was so excited!

I didn't realize how much he looks like you as a baby! The other two sure do look like Mark. I'm glad you have one who takes after you. :)

Hi, I found your blog on a blogroll and I have been reading and I just wanted to say yay for Micah and he looks exactly like you, which is sooo adorable! We can't figure out who our emmett looks like yet...mostly he looks like his sister but not like his parents at all. lol. :)
