Since Felix started eating solid food, we have tried really hard to give him a healthy diet to develop good eating habits early. People with Down Syndrome can have thyroid issues, making it easy for them to put on weight, so we wanted Felix to develop a taste for healthy food early on in the hope that he will continue a good diet into adulthood. This being said, we have rarely given him sugary food and when we have it has only been a taste, but today was an exception!

After his big play outside, Felix had a nice long soak in the bath. Having a bath is still one of his most favourite things to do. There is so much opportunity for him to learn while he's splashing around. He seems to be going through a phase of wanting to experience different sensations with his mouth. His latest thing is to put his face down close to the water so the bubbles stick to his chin and his tongue. When he lifts his head up he always has a big grin. This morning when I let the water out of the bath (with him still in it), he laid down flat on his stomach and put his mouth near the drain and felt the water rush around it as it disappeared. He thought that was hilarious!
|That's better...all clean!|
I'm looking forward to so many more Easters with Felix. I have a feeling he is going to be waiting in anticipation for the Easter bunny every year for a long time to come. Holidays have always been something special to our family and with Felix now a part of it, they can only get better!
