Gibbo,

For the little I have dealt with you on this forum I know that this grandchild will mean the world to you

We as grand parents have a special part in our hearts for our grand children and no matter whether they have special needs (as 1 of mine has Aspergers) or not they fill our hearts with their own characters.

This I would not change for the world.

My thoughts are with you and the family and hope all goes well.

Jenny

My positive thoughts for today. An update on my little mate.

Phoenix is now 3 1/2 and is walking, partly talking, likes tv and been outside and just loves spaghetti and the phone :biggrin:

There has been some worry and tears with the couple of operations he had to have but he bounced back quickly and hasnt looked back.

His personality shines through and his cheekiness also.

I cannot believe that it's three and a half years since you first told us about Phoenix. So glad to hear that he's doing well. I think you can tell from the pic that he's a cheeky chap. Must be the look of mischief in his eyes!

Where has time gone, it has gone so quickly.

My little mate turns 5 today, a happy, healthy cheeky kid. Loves the phone and talks non stop tho at times he is hard to understand but we manage to have a good yak. Sad that I live so far away from him but with the phone and face time we get by. They are hoping to have him in main stream school next year but that is still up in the air at the moment. He goes to Kindy several days a week and loves it. Kindy photo below. So proud of my little mate.

Little mate is 8 now and 9 later in the year. His starting his 3rd year of main stream school in a couple of weeks. He still has check ups with different specialist for some medical problems but all good for now. Struggles academically but socially he has thrived. He has a great sense of humor so he and i clown around a lot. He walks passed and pokes you in the ribs or sneaks into the fridge and pinches a chocolate biscuit and runs past flat out showing you what he has laughing.
Hide and seek was a big thing a couple months ago and thought i would share this photo of him hiding from me :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Gibbo,
We had a special Downs Syndrome child/ man in our family. I say special as I believe they all are.
He loved us all to be there and love playing flute, banjo and his beloved drum sticks he would tap everything.
He loved his TV but on ITV as he loved the adverts. As my wife loved the Top of the Pops ( back in the day!😉), She would try and bribe him with chocolate. Other time we would turn over and he would Sus us out after a few minutes and would give us all a mouthful and beware if he had his drumsticks!!😉
Sadly he left us aged about 42 God bless him
