A boy and his dog…again.

Taking pictures of them interacting never gets old. Layla loves him and takes care of him as if he’s her own, and he loves to sit on my lap and pet her. I can’t say enough how happy I am to see them being best friends.

Auggie’s smiles and giggles are becoming more frequent and he already has quite the personality, if it’s not obvious enough. If you’re wondering what the bright blue thing on his foot is, it’s his bandage from getting some blood work done earlier that day. It’s required for a baby with Down Syndrome at the age of 6 months to get a CBC test to check for Leukemia, and as he also has Hypothyroidism, his thyroid levels were also needing to be checked. Needless to say, it was a pretty nerve-wracking afternoon, until we received the call that his test results came back and everything looked GREAT. Our little boy is healthy and his thyroid levels are perfect! He seemed pretty happy about it too, as shown in the pictures. Having a baby with DS comes with it’s challenges and fears, but I wouldn’t trade him for the world. I can’t believe how blessed we are to be his parents, even 6 months later it still feels surreal that we have such an amazing little boy. And I don’t think that feeling will ever go away.

Also just wanted to share this sermon with you: http://vimeo.com/58318290
Britt gave this talk a few weeks before losing his little girl to cancer, but his vulnerability and faith and honesty are so heart-warming. Thought it could bring some more beacons of hope to those moments filled with struggle and fear in your journey with Auggie.
