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.

Trying Threes

Gaga Judie says its 'Terrible Two's' and 'Trying Three's'...well William was definately 'trying' me this day.  When we got home and out of the car, I had several things in my hands including a sleeping Lillian and he wanted to be carried.  I told him to use his big boy feet and walk to the door, but instead he sat in the driveway for the better part of a half hour crying and whining.  I am sure that both Grandma's are saying 'awww' right now, but eventually I have to out stubborn this kid!  So I watched him, very closely, from inside and repeatedly told him to use his walking feet to walk to the door.  Took a couple pictures too.  After a half hour of whining, crying and getting sunburned by Will, Jonas just got up from playing, without saying a word, and took matters into his own hands...literally...and went and got Will.    This boy is so stubborn!!!
