On November 18 2009 at 4:02 am William Alan Bartosch was joyfully welcomed into our family. He weighed in at 7 lbs 9 oz and 20 in long. We were stunned to discover that he was born with Trisomy 21, or Down syndrome. We love him unconditionally from the top of his toe-head to the tips of his toes. We know that this diagnosis will not define him. He is a happy, healthy little boy that just happens to have an extra chromosome.

Follow us on this unexpected and exciting journey as we learn how to live life Will's Way.

Will's Sweet Tooth

Our friend that is also a Pediatric Physical Therapist gave us a tip that I should try letting Will dip food in things to get him interested. She suggested ketchup or salsa but knowing my little guy and the sweet tooth he has already developed, we tried maple syrup. It worked! He brought it straight to his mouth and has been doing it ever since. As you can see in the picture he is practically choking himself with the cracker to get the syrup off. Great suggestion! Thanks Holly:)
