Three of Jordan and one of Maggie. Jordan’s might be interesting to other families adopting a little one with Down Syndrome from an orphanage. He’s doing very well… poor guy will still show his years in an orphanage for some time, though. Maggie’s now… it’s just complete 100% adorableness.
New things aren’t too impressive to Jordan. Can’t believe he didn’t want to eat sliced strawberries soaked in sugar. Who would turn that down??? (Will keep trying new things now and then, though)
A lot of this (rocking and groaning) happens at our house. Sometimes it drives me crazy… because I want so much for him to come out of his world and be in ours. Because it makes me feel guilty for not working with him more. But I really doubt that he will do it for the rest of his life – not to the extent he does now anyway. Why share this video? Because I appreciate and benefit from other families experiences and think other families will be glad to know and see that some not normal things really are… normal.
Just a usual meal for Jordan. It is a bit of a trick to get the timing right and watch for cues with him.
