It kind of seems like that. I just didn't have to go through the first 3 years of having twins. Ah! Since Stas has been home he has spent lots of time with his family, gotten his own first pair of shoes (size 7XW---that is extra wide!), gone to 2 of his 3 therapies, and gotten more kisses than he must have in all of his life combined. Ricky is doing okay. Sometimes I think that when he smothers him with kisses, it isn't the kisses that are supposed to dominate. He is certainly letting Stas know the pecking order.
I am the mom of 8...it just happened! When we felt as though our plate was full, God dished us up some dessert. You know...there is ALWAYS room for dessert....right? Along came Ricky, and nearly 4 years later Stas. I LOVE Down syndrome. If people knew what our family experiences with our kids with DS, they would envy us :-) Not bragging, just saying.
