It’s Like His My Mirror…..I’m Looking Right At The Other Half Of Me!

kid child toddler looks just like his daddy father

In case you haven’t noticed this little boy likes to dance!  It doesn’t matter if it’s the macarena or rocking out to Call Me Maybe, if there’s music playing you can bet this little boy will be dancing to it!

Check out the video below to see this our little toddler dancing to Justin Timberlake’s Mirrors!

By the way lots of folks have asked me who is preforming the version of Mirrors you hear in the video. It’s actually being sung by the epic-ly awesome cover band, Boyce Avenue (who I actually think does a better job of performing the song than JT!)

If you like awesome music be sure to check them out on Amazon! There’s a good chance they have covered one of your favorite songs.

Does This Kid Look Like His Daddy Or What?

Speaking of mirrors, it’s like I’m looking in a mirror every time I look at this kid! Not only does he dance just like his daddy, he rocks the bow tie just like him as well!

Check out these pictures of me (Noah’s Dad) as a little boy and Noah as a little boy.

I Love This Kid!

I love this little boy so much. I love how he plays, how he smiles, how he hugs, how he dances, how he eats waffles, and how he loves his mommy and me so much! It’s such a blessing being his daddy!

About Rick Smith

Hi, I'm Noah's Dad and I'm passionate about giving the world a window into our life as we raise our son who was born with Down syndrome. I also enjoy connecting with other families, so let's stay connected.


  1. Suzanne Phillips says

    love seeing your son, he brightens my day everytime i see that smile:-)

  2. Aquilla Phillips says

    I love seeing your posts about Noah and your family. My grandson, Joey has down syndrome. He is truly a blessing from God! I’m attaching a pix of him.

  3. Kathie Barao says

    Sorry Rick but he looks like his mom too. He’s best parts of both of you. Thanks for sharing his story.

  4. Wiviane Ribeiro do Carmo says

    I also love to follow Noah’s stories. I’m sure we are all blessed for having Down Syndrom babies in our lives. This is Walter, my brother, my love and my life. We are from Brazil. He is 33 years old.

    • Hi! Thanks so much for your comment and for sharing your picture. We seem to have a lot of people from Brazil. That’s great.

      Are you a big sister, or little sister?

      What sort of things does your brother like to do?

    • Wiviane Ribeiro do Carmo says

      Hi Rick,

      I have to say that I’m more and more in love with Noah. Your kid is very cute, lovely, a bless. His smile makes the day better.
      I think down syndrome kids have this power to make our days better. Walter has 33, he’s 2 years younger than me. He is my brother, but I’m also a kind of mother to him. We lost our mother in 1996 and dad in 2001. I cried a lot reading Noah’s birth story because I thought my parents have felt the same when they discovered Walter has Down Syndrome. Can you imagine how much prejudicious and ignorant people could be about the Syndrome 33 years ago? I read a document of his birth which even has the word “mongol”. But the fact is that he is lovely and makes our lives better. We love him so much. He loves dancing and is a Chavo’s fan.

    Story abt our baby due in Nov. My daughter was a little concerned that baby had not been moving as much as usual. Son in law has a country western band. He plays guitar and sings. He laid is head on daughters tummy and started singing. Baby started moving like it was dancing. 🙂

  9. dancing … the most natural, free expression love for our kids! 🙂 pic is of post dancing… love it! J is now 20 years old….and plays the drums! 😉

  10. I love seeing all the pics of our precious angels. I have a brother, Vince, 60 yrs old and a daughter, Kathleen, 25 both with DS – they argue like brother and sister. I get a kick out of watching them interact. Kathleen tells me and others (usually checkers at the grocery store) how lucky I am to have her! I have to agree with her on that. Our family has been blessed twice over.
