Happy Birthday, Asher Boy

Two years with our Asher!  It's hard to comprehend he has only been with us for such a short time.  It feels like he's always been a part of us, this little family.  This sweet one has captured our hearts.  I don't know when or how it happened but this toddler brings so much we didn't even know was missing until he came.  There is a peace and joy that seems to fill our home with him around.  I never understood what people were talking about when they told me what a blessing it would be to have a child with Down syndrome but I'm starting to get it.

Asher has come so far in just the last month.  He's started to stand up in the middle of the room, he's tried taking a few steps too!  His sign language has taken off.  He now uses around 30 signs on a regular basis and seems to learn new ones everyday.  We love being able to understand how his mind works and what he's thinking.  What an incredible gift!

Happy birthday, Asher!
