Meet Harry!


I realised earlier this week, I've never really introduced Harry. So here he is! 

Isn't he the cutest? 

So, Harry was born on 31st March 2016 at 5:49pm. If you want to know more about his delivery then you can find that here. He's now nearly 4 and a half and about to start school in September - I'm not really sure where that's come from honestly - he's around 96cm tall and weighs around 17kg. 

I've spoken about it all before, but if you didn't know, Harry has Down's syndrome and Klinefelter's Syndrome. He got the diagnosis of Down's syndrome at birth - you can find out more about Down's syndrome here and Klinefelter's Syndrome here

So here are some facts about Harry you may not know

1. Harry actually has 2 middle names - Alexander, which was the name we had picked out for him originally, and David, after my grandfather

2. Most people believe Harry was named after Harry Potter - He is most definatatly not! He is named after Sam's grandfather who unfortunately never got to meet Harry. 

3. Despite never wanting to shorten Harry's name (I wasn't even sure that you could) Harry gets called H. Just H. 

4. Harry is identical to my baby brother (who is now 21?!) but acts like Sam in every way. 

5. The first word Harry learnt to sign was food - He still signs it now even though he can say it. 

6. For Harry's first 3 birthdays we visited SeaLife centre (honestly its great for sensory)

7. He's had 3 main nicknames in his life that aren't H, Rex, Monkey and Bug.

8. He knows 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. 'The Gruffalo' and 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' off by heart.

9. Harry is a complete daddy's boy. Always has been, always will be. 

10. He loves the number 3. When ever you ask him how many of something he wants his answer is always 3.

So there is a little more about Harry! 

Hope you have enjoyed getting to know Harry!

Birth Story

Harry's birth story seemed like a fitting first post on here. Bear with me because it was written months ago. More posts to follow ever...
