Gavin at 5 weeks
Gavin is a month old now :) He is doing great and is so strong! he has great motor control and strength :) He is now drinking 6 oz of breast milk and formula via bottle and sometimes he will nurse for a second....lol. He feels heavy so I am sure he has gained more weight :) He sleeps alot still but when he is awake I see his little personality shinning though. He makes such funny faces! He saw the PT lady yesterday and early intervention is coming once a week now. PT will come once a month. He is still so young right now but they will be here when he is ready and needing it :) He is so sweet and I love him so much. I am starting to see him as just my son... not just the down syndrome. I am blessed!
Here are some pictures from yesterday when he was 5 weeks old :)
This is a new blog celebrating and noting our journey with our new son Gavin who has down syndrome. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I was scheduled to have a C-section 10/28/08 but when I was just 37.2 weeks I went into labor. Our son Gavin Russell was born 10/16/08 at 11:30 am via C-section. Gavin weighed 8 lbs and 6 oz and was 21 inches long. After Gavin was born and before they tied my tubes we found out about Gavin having down syndrome by the doctors saying " are you sure you want your tubes tied, it looks like he has down syndrome." We were shocked to say the least. I went ahead and had my tubes tied and our journey with DS began. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I know Gavin is a true gift from God and even though I wish with everything that I am that he did not have DS I love him so and will get through this one day at a time.
