Blogtoberfest Day 22: Twenty-one Today



Twenty-one years ago I gave birth to our first child, a little boy who put us on a slightly different adventure than we had anticipated, but one still filled with joy and wonder. This picture was taken within days of bringing him home.






Here he is at two years old, shortly after he had been very sick. This photo won a "cutest kid" contest (with the prize of a camera) sponsored by a local camera store.







Here is a photo of the two of us taken this past summer at Long Beach on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, the same familiar smiles for both of us.

Happy Birthday to your 21 year old! Love the photos... especially at two... what a cutie. I have a son with DS also, the youngest of our five children and he is a joy as well. Blessings to you and yours!
