Beautiful kid, BB.  My wife's cousin who lives in the area has a 5 year old daughter with DS.  Sweetest little girl, we love her very much.

A beautiful boy!  Always enjoy seeing him when he's at the games with grandma and grandpa.

Down Syndrome is a tough disease, and my respect goes out to every person that has it and every parent that has a Down Syndrome kid. I've known a few kids who had it over the years, and I admired how they were able to still do well for themselves even with that hurdle placed in front of them.

The internet can sometimes be a good thing.  After the initial shock of the news (after his birth, no idea from the ultrasounds), our daughter and son-in-law got busy doing research on their phones and, eventually, just buckled down to raising their son.  My wife was with them when they got the news.  She called me and I started doing research as well. A lot of people know someone who is effected by this (about 1 in 700 births last I looked).  As one of our friends told us just get used to a new "normal".  As we've learned most kids are "typical", not "normal".  Every little sign of progress brings great joy.  He is just starting to stand on his own at 20 months.  So he will get to walking soon hopefully.  You just adjust your expectation timeline.  Don't get me wrong, initially the news is devastating.  But with time you see the joy he brings to all our lives.  I have a video of him making a basket in his little hoop and I show it to everyone I know.  Always the proud pop-pop.  And his big brother loves him to death.  Has no idea he is not typical yet.
