Baby Flex

One of the characteristics of Down syndrome is "an excessive ability to extend the joints." Babies with DS are extremely flexible and Joaquin is no exception. Here is a photo of one of his most favorite positions.  We are constantly reminding him not to poke his eye out...with his toes!!!

i believe this characteristic is indicative of a lot more than just being able to extend the joints. i think it's reflective of a special flexibility in the heart. joaquin is bringing us a much bigger gift than his impressive toe sucking.
