March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day
Hannah is feeling better although she still has a definite cough and some tightness around her chest - especially at night. On Friday we had the traditional 'movie night' which the brats love. This week's viewing was the new Astroboy movie - Hannah LOVES astroboy.
Afterwards neither child wanted to go to bed - so to delay the inevitable they wanted to watch the special features - one was on how to draw Astroboy. The guy said to draw 4 circles one under the other for proportion - so cirlce one became his head and circle four his legs.
Kit was fascinated by this - and straight away wanted to draw. They watched the bonus feature once more and then Kit sat at the bench and drew a pretty good Astro following the principles the animator ahd outlined. Hannah bear then got her act together - and without any prompting she too drew teh 4 circles exactly as had been demonstrated. Her overall Astro had a few more loops and curls but still - a really good impression - and I really would not have expected her to 'get' the 4 cirlces that quickly without any other instruction or help. GOod Girl - we love you sweetie!! Happy World DS day. In honour of Hannah and other's wonderful 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome I am going to be doing some uni work (eek) buying hot cross buns after church and making chocolate pudding for dessert. Have a great day everyone.
