maxs eyes

anytime we meet someone new they always compliment max on his eyes, he has beautiful (handsome) eyes... i know that brushfeild spots are partially to thank for them, but i took this picture yesterday with the flash i was able to pick up the white spots a little more then normal

and just thought i would share it.

(Brushfield's spots: Speckled iris. Little white spots that slightly elevated on the surface of the iris arranged in a ring concentric with the pupil. These spots occur in "typical" children but are far more frequent in Down syndrome (trisomy 21). They were described in 1924 by Thomas Brushfield and are due to aggregation of a normal iris element (connective tissue).

(oh, and max tried carrots for the first time yesterday,... he did not like it:()
