Cruising into the weekend with big smiles 🏍 #happyfriday
Escaped to the woods for a few days and this girl is soaking it all in! She loved exploring the trails and water, finding rocks and twigs and fallen logs to climb over. I love watching her confidence grow as she learns to climb and splash and run and in turn we’re learning to trust her as she takes risks! . . . . . . #dsdn #theluckyfew #morealikethandifferent #upsyndrome #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndromeawareness #trisomy21 #specialneedsmom #letthemplay #magicofchildhood #learningthroughplay
So after my little public melt down a few weeks ago I thought I'd let u all in on some good news....I've turned a corner...something's clicked! I think a combination of being so honest, help from my family, spending more 1 on 1 time with Levi and him being in hospital just shifted something. Were like a different mother and son! I've gone from thinking he didn't like me and hated me holding him to watching him dive from other people's arms into mine! Its like he's sensed I feel different and is now a total mummies boy! Although I know he would have been like this all along if I hadn't of had post natal depression but as guilty as I feel I'm not beating myself up, I'm getting there, Were getting there...and I'm not looking back ❤️ Pic is Levi flat out in the bubbles bit of the pool 😂 he was gone in about 30 seconds!! . . . #honest #truth #thisisme #pnd #depression #speakup #talk #postnataldepression #mentalhealthawareness #backtonormal #progress #pool #bubbles #dsdn #downsyndromelove #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndrome #changingthefaceofbeauty #morealikethandifferent #lifeisbetterwithyou #theluckyfew #family #love #t21 #trisomy21 #t21

I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M ONE!!! Partly because Mama's so in denial she waited three days to get my 12-month photos. #poormama #firstbirthday #dsdn #adore_able #downsyndromelove #nothingdownabouthim #lifeisbetterwithyou #theluckyfew

Cannot handle his chubby baby body and the fact that HE. IS. SITTING! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 and 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 He’s wobbly and unsteady and can only hold it for brief periods of time but we are celebrating this major milestone. 👊🏻 #bigboystatus
💁🏼‍♀️ D I V A 💁🏼‍♀️ As all good Divas do, I customised my outfit by wearing my dungarees in a trendy way. It didn’t matter how many times mummy put them back the right way, I managed to make them look much better like this 🤷🏼‍♀️ #fashionista . . . . #wouldntchangeathing #changingthefaceofbeauty #dsdn #downsideup #dontlimitme #downsyndrome #downsyndromecutie #downsyndrometoddler #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndromebaby #homiewithanextrachromie #lifeisbetterwithyou #morealikethandifferent #nothingdownaboutit #t21 #trisomy21 #t21rocks #theluckyfew #upsyndrome #nothingdown
First time in one of these carts & I’m pretty sure she loved it 😆 @publix #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndrome #daddysgirl #downsyndromeawareness #dsdn #happyfriday
Week 1 of ballet camp is complete. Today’s performances were wonderful. I wish you could have heard Dashiel’s little squeals and seen all of his attempts at copying the girls movements, with a few signs thrown in which matched words from the music. He wanted off my lap and onto the studio floor in the worst way. . . . #balletdancer #ballet #balletclass @saugerties_ballet #dancemoms #dancelife #downsyndrome #morealikethandifferent #upsyndrome #dsdn

Them lotus biscuit milkshakes were something else!😍
It sure got cold in Austria! #lifewithds
When he knows what he wants, he knows what he wants 😂😂😂 also that lazy sign language 😅😅 his speech therapist points to her mouth when she talks to him so now he points to his mouth like he is saying the work but it definitely doesn’t sound like please 😂
Happy three months to my little pip squeak wiggle worm 🐛 never a dull moment with you ✨ • • • #downsyndrome #upsyndrome #nothingdownaboutit #homiewithanextrachromie #lifeisbetterwithyou #theluckyfew #t21 #dsdn #preemie #34weeker
Dear Clara, Sine the weather is kinda icky and Mom and I have stuffy noses, we are hanging’ inside this morning working on my sign language flash cards. I love these things. I already know all 50 of them, but the pictures are awesome and my mom acts so silly that it’s loads of fun EVERY time. Also, I get to do the “high five” game. This is when someone wants a high five but instead of just giving them one, you really make them work for it. I am a hoot I tell you. 😉😂😉 PS. You looked very pretty in your new pants... I have the matchers. All the coolest couples coordinate. ❤️ Rain rain go away, Cutler James ❤️❤️#cutlerjames #beautifulsoul #claraviolet #tinyfighter #bestfriendgoals #bestfriendsforever #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #t21 #toddlerfashion #toddlerlife #morealikethandifferent #theluckyfew #signlanguage #ican #bekind #love #pintsizepowercouple #nothingdown #ndss #dsdn #highfive #workinghard #icandoanything #silly #summerday #rainraingoaway #trisomy21 #learningeveryday

Today we spent our afternoon at soft play. It was pretty busy today so I was interested to see how Amelia would be around so many other little children as she doesn’t get to go play group anymore. I ended up having to chase Amelia around who was chasing around other children (some much bigger than her) and stealing all their toys 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ #daughtergoals #baby #babyspam #firstbaby #instababy #blog #blogging #downsyndromeblog #instablog #instablogging #mumblog #mumblogging #pbloggeruk #ukparentingblog #parenting #mumlife #mum #mumsofinstagram #motherhood #childhoodunplugged #lifewithds #theluckyfew #downsyndromeawareness #dsdn #changingthefaceofbeauty #xtra21 #bornthisway #dsawareness #adore_able #differentlyabled #theluckyfew #lifewithds

Hi 👋🏼 Evie Love’s the name and perfect, almond-shaped eyes are MY game! . Despite eye issues being common for cool kids with that extra 21st chromosome (Down Syndrome), this girl killed her annual eye appointment!!!! Great eye development, strength, vision, and focus! 💪🏼👀💪🏼 We couldn’t be more thankful for the good news, but it’s something we will definitely keep an EYE on. 😉 . . . #EvieLove #DownSyndrome #TheLuckyFew #NothingDownAboutIt #T21 #CTFOB #Trisomy21 #DownSyndromeAwareness #SaveDownSyndrome #ChangingTheFaceOfBeauty #DownSyndromeRocks #DSDN #MoreAlikeThanDifferent #UpSyndrome #DownSyndromeLove #LIFEisbetterwithyou
Woke up to rain today ☔️ (which i’m secretly happy about! Chloe - not so much 🤣) so I thought a wee wintery #flashbackfriday seemed appropriate 🍁🌧 A little 2 year old Chloe here, wrapped up perfectly for the typical Scottish weather 💙 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #zebedeemodel #zebedeemanagement #teamzebedee #childmodel #childmodelsearch #minimodel #kidstagram #instakids #kidsfashion #kidswinterfashion #minifashionista #downsyndrome #disabledmodel #differentlyabled #downsyndromemodel #designergenes #t21 #morealikethandifferent #changingthefaceofbeauty #thisgirlcan #theluckyfew #wouldntchangeathing #iamable #nothingdown #dsdn #amorsindromededown
I had to unwrap her so I would be able to sleep, but first a picture. She was such a stinker this evening, but my heart melts every time I walk in and check on her at night. ❤️#dsdn #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #downsyndromeadoption #sleepingbeauty
Be still my heart!! #upsyndrome #dsdn
Don't mess with a mama bear and a papa bear! We have never really had to fight for Liam's rights before, but apparently now is our time. Without going into too much detail, what our school district promised us for Liam's year in Kindergarten has completely changed, and his rights are being challenged. Apparently they changed Least Restrictive Environment to MOST Restrictive Environment, and went back approximately 30 years. Their "groundbreaking" special education plan should alternately be titled segregation. I'm always laid back and kind, and I don't create conflict unless necessary. But tomorrow morning, I am unleashing my fury. Liam will get to be in an inclusive classroom with an aide as we were promised, and as recommended by his current team. Yes, he will be with "kids of his kind." And by "kids of his kind" I mean human beings who are 5 and 6 years old. IF they refuse to give us that, they will be paying to send him to a school district that can. I love our district, so this is truly heartbreaking. Thankfully, we have an incredible army on our side. 💙💛
Took our bath in the pool tonight, she thought it was the greatest thing ever. ☺️🙃 #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndromeawareness #nothingdownaboutit #dsdn #momlife #outdoorlife
Some days I wonder how we created such a magical little human✨
Por 4 años he tenido la oportunidad de visitar este hermoso lugar @downtenerife donde me evalúan y apoyan a mi familia para desarrollar todo mi potencial. "El aprendizaje es como una torre, hay que ir construyéndolo paso a paso". Que cómo me encontraron??

"La vida en sí misma no tiene ningún significado. La vida es una oportunidad para crear un significado". Hace 5 años no me imagine estar enseñando #yoga y menos Yoga para personas con #capacidadesdiferentes . Gracias @downtenerife por darme la oportunidad de compartir con estos chicos #xtradivertidos y #xtrasabrosos un inolvidable momento. Gracias a mi asistente @emanuel.luis.con y al fotógrafo oficial de mis clases @abianl y por supuesto a un #xtradivertido personaje que me ayudó a crear ese significado de vida @elgordinchi quien no participó en la clase porque estaba en su evaluación en el mismo centro. Gracias a la divinidad por las señales, por hacer que me encuentre con cada persona y cada lugar que me ayudan a continuar creando ese significado de vida. . . #yogaforthespecialchild #yogaforkids #kidsyoga #sindromededown #downsyndrome #trisomy21 #trisomia21 #ds #dsdn #upwithdown #changingthefaceofbeauty #justlikeyou #upwithdown #downrightperfect #downeate #yogateacher #yogaparaniños #españa #downtenerife #tenerife #auténticos
Rory worked on her gross motor skills outside again today! She practiced taking steps up & down on the curb, & walking on uneven ground. We’re also working on coming when I call for her (that’s a major work in progress), because right now she takes off if she has the chance to & she doesn’t understand how dangerous that can be. After she got her workout in, she got some chalk time in before the heat was too much for us. The last two photos just made me laugh. She looks like she’s taking a sip of her water (she wasn’t actually drinking, hopefully someday!) while getting ready to talk about her fitness routine. :) . . . . . . . #downsyndrome #downrightperfect #theluckyfew #dsdn #physicaltherapy #getoutside #documentyourdays #toddlersofig #morealikethandifferent
