Noah’s First Swim

We had a chance to take Noah on his very first swim today, and he had tons of fun (I think!!?)

We’re in love.

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. Hi Noah,
    What a handsome swimmer you are! Your father might feel the need to say that you had lots of fun but it was sooooo obvious! And you stand so tall, you are growing fast aren’t you? My Marjolein is growing fast too, she discovered how to crawl on her belly and moves through the living room with great passion, she’s like a swimmer on the wooden floor. I read the letter that your lovely parents wrote when you were born, spot on! We had a note sent with the birth cards making sure everyone knew the situation but foremost knew that she was our little princess and we love her to bits. Your website is… I cannot find the right words to express, but so amazingly great and helpful, you cannot imagine. We read about your Beckman mouth therapy and told our speech therapist, she enthousiastically hopped onto the subject and we now have a kind of Z-vibe too, it’s not electric though. I think there is a progress or is it just me..or or or…. yes, we have a tiny little white tooth coming up. Cute!! The ‘strawcup’ that we are using, also from your website, is working wonders too, we love.
    Thanks for being such a great guy little man, for all the joy that you give not only to the people around you but also across the world.
    (and we are certainly far away… swiming outside????!)
    Cheers m’dear, have a merry Xmas!
