When a Milestone Isn’t Just a Milestone
Baby Adeline showing off those pearly… gums.
Our baby, Adeline, has a heart defect and Down syndrome. Because of challenges associated with Down syndrome, including lower muscle tone, many babies with this condition experience delays in certain areas of development. We celebrate every milestone as we get them.
But at just six weeks old, Adeline had a big surprise for us: She smiled for the first time.
I could tell she was close to smiling by the way she was engaging with us, so I propped her up on my shoulder and started some silly talk with her. She popped her head up and flashed the biggest smile.
Adeline’s smile completely melted me. It was one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen. I immediately told her daddy and two big sisters. — Peyton-Leigh H
