Happy 1st Birthday, Happy Earth Day


Sylas ("Man of the Forest") is officially ONE! He enjoyed sharing his birthday with Earth Day...and celebrated with helping his siblings and their schoolmates clean up a beach that is near their school.

In the evening after dinner, Sylas got his own birthday cake to dig into. All of us anxiously anticipated how Sy would react. I asked him if he wanted cake, and he started kicking and waving his arms around. Sylas has never had cake before, but he sure reacted strongly to the word "cake". Kids must innately know that cake is good! He immediately slapped his hands down on the cake, and proceeded to lick the frosting off of his hands.


Although Sylas is still small, this picture is a little reminder of how much he has grown over the past year. I am working on a photo slideshow of his 1st year, and I will post that when it is finished.
I hope everyone had a enjoyable Earth Day...I would have to say that not only did we have a great day, but a very memorable first year...can't wait to experience the joys that Sylas' second year brings!

  8. Hi! I just found your blog through a friend and felt compelled to say "hi". I also found out at 20 weeks pregnant that our second baby boy has Down syndrome. He was born just a few weeks ago- April 20th, so just 2 days shy of a year from your little one! I loved how you shared your story of how you found out about Sylas' diagnosis. It's strange how I can feel a connection to a complete stranger merely because our sons share an extra chromosome...but I do! :)
