The first year of a baby is one exciting year. The milestones fly by so fast, it's hard to find time to document them. Today, we finally got some pictures of Faustina smiling. She's been smile for a couple weeks now, but those first smiles are so elusive! She's been giving my girlfriends big ones, but she's very stingy for Daddy and her siblings. I guess she likes the mammas :)
I recently read a statistic that 94% of baby with Downs Syndrome are aborted. That number seems too high to believe. Surely, that can't be right. One thing is for certain, the most dangerous place for a baby with disabilities is in the womb. I am adding this petition for Downs babies to my daily prayers- that they survive the womb- the one place that is supposed to be the safest. I am told that in third world countries people with disabilities are abused and mistreated, but here in our 'civilized' world, we just kill them before they can take their first breath. Ok, I am trying really hard not to go into my "WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD??" rant, so I will stop here.
Brighter news: Faustina started rolling too! She's rolls from her tummy to her back. It makes mandatory tummy time a little hard when she's constantly flipping to her back. I lay her down, she rolls on her back. I put her back on her tummy, she rolls back to her back, again and again.
This boy loves his baby sister!
