Our new little super baby!

I’m about six weeks late in writing this post, but I want to officially introduce all of our blog readers to Noah and Jaxten’s new baby brother, Koen Breckin Smith!

It doesn’t seem like that long ago that we were welcoming into the world our second child, Jaxten, but here we are with our third bundle of joy…and he is awesome!

It is such a blessing being a parent. There is nothing like the moment when you’re handed your child for the first time.

We are home from the hospital and the boys are doing well. It’s fun watching the boys play with each other and seeing the love they already have their new baby brother. The boys are so sweet with him!

We’re thankful for this “lil bro!”

A 2018 Goal

I spend more of my time sharing moments on our Facebook and Instagram accounts, but I hope to get back to sharing our story on this blog as we move into 2018! I miss sharing our story here and connecting with our readers, and I’m looking forward to getting back to both of those soon.

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. Congratulations to all. He is beautiful and the boys appear to in love with the little guy. If only we could maintain that innocence and purity, what a wonderful world we would live in. I hope that your Thanksgiving was amazing and that Christmas brings you all the Peace and Joy of the season God Bless.

    He’s perfect! They all are. So nice to see a new post! Can’t wait to hear of all of the goings on. Looks like you are moving in the way of our family – we had 4 sons… and now they are all having sons! Well the two that have kids have three boys between the two of them and our oldest son’s first child is due any day. The gender is still a secret but so far… Boys r Us! Lol! Happy holidays to your beautiful family!❤️
