As parents we dream of our childs first smile, first steps, or first words. Well I have one to surpass all of those... a kiss from your child!
I will be honest, when our daughter was born I had the stereotypical view of a child with downs syndrome. Children often have the relaxed bottom jaw.
As a result our daughters sign of affection have been of the best hugs that you could ever receive and then followed by the sloppiest kiss. I thought thats what embraces from our daughter would be.
However just last week, our daughter has perfected, the most simplest and warmest of kisses, leaving us slobber free and heart melted.
So it shows, even now, you can set expectations, but these kids will suprise you and raise your expectations all the way.
Next stop? Ride a bike :-)
