Eyes

This post probably seems a little strange...but keep reading...I am still in aw of what I can capture with my new camera. I never before had the ability to capture such detail. I have always thought my children's eyes were beautiful, but now I can record what they actually look like to me everyday. I also have a little something to say about the eyes of children with Down syndrome. Are they not the most beautiful eyes you have ever seen!! When Logan was born and we were given his possible diagnosis of Down syndrome, my doctor said he suspected DS because of two things, Logan's simian crease on his palms and his slanted eyes. It did take me awhile to accept the way that Logan would look, including his eyes. When I got passed the fact that Logan's eyes would look different than most kids, I began to see the striking beauty of their almond shape. You can even see the brushfield spots in the colored part of his eye.

Joel's eyes are so similar to Logan's. He has the light blue colour in the middle and the dark blue circle around. People always comment on how amazing his eyes are. I always think about the saying "the eyes are the window to the soul" when I look at his eyes!
