When John Michael was born, Nicolas was really sad for a while because having a brother Down syndrome meant (to him at the time) that he wouldn't have anyone to play LEGOs with or play ball.
John Michael continually proves to us that he is all boy first and Down syndrome is just a small part of who he is.
Here, brothers are playing LEGOs together, even though the pieces are too small for JM to put together. He's at the Mega Blocks stage for stacking, but took some time out of his busy toddler schedule to play with his big brother.
* Yes, I realize the pieces are super small and can be put in his mouth, but I was monitoring very carefully :-)
