Welcome to our journey

So this is my first post, and I just want to tell you a little about us. Rhett is 13 months old, and is the cutest thing ever! I never thought that having a child with Down Syndrome could be such a hoot! He was born in October, and stayed in the NICU for about the first month. He was born with an AV canal heart defect, and had open heart surgery in February 2006. Wow was that an experience....the little bugger tried to buy his way into the PICU on the heart lung bypass machine.

Since he had his surgery he has done very well, and has been growing like a weed. We are going to have our house paid off before him, but oh it is so worth it! He is our million dollar baby! We just had the speech therapist come out on Friday, and he dosen't need speech for righ now, he is ahead! I think that is probablly the first time I have ever heard that come out of someones mouth. Yea for Rhett!!! Any ways long story short.......this is our life! Happy blogging!
