So I hobbled around the house while doubled over, and made sure Evie got fed and stayed alive this weekend. I don't think she had any idea how incapacitated her parents were. Ah, the life of a baby!
At the bottom of this post is a Youtube video of "Beautiful Things" by Gungor. I already liked the song, but found out from a friend with her own extraordinary boy that the lead singers of Gungor wrote this song when their child was born with Down Syndrome. I used to play this song during my drive to work, thinking about how our lives would be so different with or without Down Syndrome, but that I knew Evie would be our beautiful gift. Now the song is even more special to me.
