A Trisomy 18 Journey

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain. -- Vivian Greene

With Julia, the normal baby list of "firsts" during the first year does not really apply. We have experienced a few of those like first bath, first smile, first sleep through the night (just kidding! We wish!), and first cereal (in with her formula). Others such as first laugh, first roll over, first time sitting alone, standing, cruising, walking, talking -- some of those may happen on a delayed timeline and others may not apply. We have accepted that Julia's list of firsts will be different from Sydney's and Isaac's. Julia has had a very unique week of firsts that I think must be included. On Tuesday she experienced her first earthquake. For the east coast it was a significant quake. It was my first one, too. And today we are waiting for her first hurricane. Two big events in one week! My older kids don't have anything like that in their baby books! :)
