Mikey loves to vacuum. He is actually just obsessed with the machine, I think. Any time I vacuum, he is right on top of it. I've been letting him help lately and his favorite job is cleaning the sectional. This picture is real and not staged. He just really loves to help. Hopefully he always does! #lifeisalwaysbetterwithyou #lifeisbetterwithyou #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #thesnyderclan #bigbrothermikey #downsyndrome #trisomy21 #upsyndrome
Happy little face this morning despite her cold and her jabs this week. Just a little rant. A health professional referred to Lizzie as a Down’s child today, they really should know better. Lizzie is a little girl with Down Syndrome, please refer to her first, not DS. #downsyndrome #theluckyfew #nothingdownaboutit #personfirstlanguage #upsyndrome
Are you sitting quietly? I’m going to read you a story 🤗🎀
Astrid är verkligen inne i ett utvecklings flow just nu, jag hänger inte riktigt med. Gåvagnen kastade jag ut för någon vecka sedan för den inte användes. 🙈 Men det funkar minnst lika bra med en Ikea pall. 😉 När jag har försökt gå tränat med henne förut så har hon bara satt sig ,men idag ställde hon sig själv upp och började putta pallen. Det är som att hon har allt klart inom sig (äta med sked, sätta klossarna på pinnen) hon behöver bara processa lite sen kommer det helt av sig själv. Jag är så himla stolt!!! ❤ Astrid tecknar även att hon är duktig på slutet av filmen, undrar om hon har hört det några gånger. 😊😆#proudmommy #triosmy21 #t21rocks #t21 #nothingdownaboutit #downrightperfect #downisup #downsyndrome #downsyndromelove #sweetbabygirl #walk #kansjälv #loveofmylife #love

How beautiful is our sensory bin today at school!!! Learning about Autumn season at @toddenindia Norah loves tactile and sensory inputs, it helps her explore,understand and learn better. What better way to learn about autumn in winter than this super stimulating sensory bin!! #picoftheday #youcandoanything #theluckyfew #toddlersden #babiesofinstagram #nothingdownaboutit #sensoryplay #december #lifestyle #momblog #proudmom #daughtergoals #happysoul #therapy #babymodel #dontlimitme #morealikethandifferent #bornthisway #limitededition #warriorprincess #sensorybin #lifestyleblogger #iamable #dsdn #blessedwiththebest #downsyndromerocks #strengthandconditioning #loveislove #instagram #almostfamous

This afternoon as the clock flipped over to 1:53pm, I lay curled around you in bed watching you sleep. Your eyes fluttered, your mouth was open in a half smile, fine hair floating out in all directions. I breathed you in – you utterly content with a belly full of milk and me utterly content with my arms full of you. Perfect, marvelous, wonderful you. It’s been a year since we first met. Blink. A year. Blink blink blink. Where did it go? Yes, the year but also my fear. The uncertainties. The overwhelm. Where did it all go? I’ve gone back and read On the Night You Were Born a number of times now and I can barely relate. I want to reach back in time and hug the woman who wrote it tight. To whisper in her ear that everything is going to be just fine. She wouldn’t have believed me but I would tell her fervently that a year from now, you will find it hard to conjure up the grief. The intense sadness will be replaced with a love so strong that you want to yell it from the mountain tops. Everything will be okay. In the beginning, I thought about Izzy’s Down syndrome 24-7. There was not a moment that passed that it wasn’t on my mind. I had a permanent Down syndrome thought bubble above my head. When we were in public I had the strangest urge to blurt it out to anyone who even glanced her way. It felt like such a Big Deal that it was all I could think about. I went to bed and woke up thinking about it. I oscillated wildly between acceptance and despair. Down syndrome, Down syndrome, Down syndrome. All the time. But as time marched on, the thought bubble started to dissipate. Perhaps I grew accustomed to the idea or more likely, it was because other than Izzy being diagnosed with Down syndrome, Down syndrome essentially played no role in our day to day lives. Izzy was growing into a happy, smiling, engaged baby. She was eating, pooping, rolling, grabbing, smiling and doing everything a baby is supposed to do. Then one day I realized that I hadn’t thought about Down Syndrome in a few hours. Then a few days. Then all of a sudden the scale tipped and the thought bubble popped. Now I have to remind myself. Oh yeah, she has Down syndrome. [Continued in comments 👇]
We are so lucky to have you. You were the missing piece ♥️ #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #babysteps #stronggirl
The Matriarch. So ever year I make sure to get holiday photos taken of our family... and every year I have to convince and guilt my older kids into it, but I seriously look forward to it even when they think it’s corny. And I love comparing the years prior... so I just got this pic today, the first sneak peak.. so looking forward to seeing the rest 😍😍 photo cred: @thecewbe who had been so patient during the photo shoot with my lateness, my crazy toddler, losing the diaper bag, and my kids complaining . . . . #familypic #traditions #momoffour #family #holidays #christmastime #nothingdownaboutit #extrachromosomeextracute #thematriarch #t21 #mixedbabies #mixedkids #mybabies #love

Tonight is our first day and night in the #hospital for this stay, but marks day 19 for the year. The repair around the duodenal stenosis was successful which we are #thankful for. We were told to expect a 4 to 6 day stay. So now we wait, and I sleep on the room couch yet again. It's not the most comfortable place to sleep but I know I wouldn't sleep good at home so here I am. Praying for a quick recovery so we can go #home . . . #sleep #beeps #ngtube #nothingdownaboutit #morealikethandifferent #dsdn #theluckyfew #t21 #upsyndrome #downsyndrome #lifeisbetterwithyou #ndss

En el festival de navidad de mi hermana Victoria. Si, amo a mi mama 🤣🤣 no le pierdo la vista 😍
Con amor y dedicación todo es posible... Si crees que se puede, se podrá! Con esta función terminamos preescolar! Demasiado orgullosa de mi princesa, del esmero que le pone a todas sus actividades y de lo feliz que se pone cuando sabe que lo ha logrado... A la vez demasiado agradecida por todas las personas que han tocado nuestras vidas y son parte importante de este logro: familia, amigos, terapeutas, teachers, compañeritos, papás de los compañeritos y más... en especial a @colegiodepanama y @jardindeninospty por creer en la inclusión y en mi #valevictoria ❤️ #proudmom #momgoals #myinspiration #wemadeit #downsyndromeawareness #inclusion #downsyndrome #nothingdownaboutit
Well, he didn’t cry but he definitely didn’t smile 🤪 (Elf in training 😂) Loved having this jolly fellow at Church tonight! ...And even though Jesus is the true reason for the season...some Santa Magic is fun too! Loved how this Santa couldn’t wait to get his hands on Daniel 💙🎅🏻 #falalala #tistheseason #theluckyfew #nothingdownaboutit 🎄🎅🏻😍 Merry CHRISTmas!

No photos, mom! I’m in pretty good spirits considering I have RSV, an ear infection, sinus infection, and pink eye all at the same time. Let’s hope these meds kick in and I am better in no time!
Woo Lord today has been a day! One of those days where Wesley better get everything he wants or Adam and I are going to pay for it. We’ve created a monster! And he’s itching sooo bad. I feel terrible for him. Every time air hits his chest, his hands are like magnets and he attacks his chest. He’s even scrubbing it through his onesies every now and then.💛💙 . . . #asdclosure #openheartsurgery #chdwarrior #chdawareness #raisingwesley #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndrome #downsyndromelove #upsyndrome #theluckyfew #trisomy21 #joyinthelittlethings #downsyndromemom #homiewithanextrachromie #nothingdownabouthim #celebratethelittlethings #tubiebaby #o2crew #wesleystevenpost #iamable #morealikethandifferent #t21 #t21love

Ok all you Calhoun Outlet Marketplace (Georgia) shoppers and @rakoutfitters lovers....they have Grace’s candidly kind tees in all 6 styles. (see the go with the flow & dramanatic hanging behind Grace) We dropped by to check out the display & all their other cool stuff and ran into one of Grace’s bff’s , Krystin:) Can you tell they were happy to see each other? Krystin keeps everyone at RAK straight a couple days a week. RAK has the most awesome stuff! Grace is wearing one of their Patagonia coats over her dramanatic tee! Not only do they have the coolest things, they employ people with differing abilities, give back to charities in a big way and are owned by one of the kindest most respected families I know.They have supported Grace since the beginning and we are GRATEFUL! So if you’ve never been to RAK you need to go and you might just have the pleasure to meet Krystin as well! ❤️❤️❤️ #justbekind #candidlykind #bffs #entrepreneurlife #theluckyfew #instores #customtees #grateful #thankful #shop #nothingdownaboutit

I don't know where he learned this, but this silly face is his go-to these days. The first time I made it back at him he cried from terror and nearly flipped out of the cart at Target as he tried to get away from me! Now it's funny all around...except when you're trying to discipline and he whips this out on ya #littleturd
A busy afternoon at Cardinal Glennon for check ups. If you know Dr. Huddleston, you know this dear woman is never far away. Blessed with having her during this process. She has a truly wonderful heart! #miraclebaby #nothingdownaboutit #chdwarrior #dailydoseofemmahelton #chd

Nic usually doesn’t take his eyes off of Colt, but when he is on his own it’s easy to see how much he really understands and can communicate with sign language. People have asked me if I think he will ever talk. I assume he will in his own time, but I really have no idea. We will continue to grow his (and our) sign language skills so he can be a great communicator in whatever form that takes. He will be 3 years old in a month and is still working very hard to say “ma ma” so we are just going to celebrate every victory and not worry about the timeline. I’m so proud of this boy! ❤️❤️ #proudmom #signlanguage #downrightwonderful #nothingdownaboutit #lovehim

This cutie pie was FINALLY evaluated for speech therapy today. I have been pushing for it for months. I was told he wouldn’t qualify but my mama gut knew better. He qualified for almost the max amount. He will be going 2hours a week. Almost as much as Jace. Mom guilt is super high on this one. I should have fought harder. I should have worked with him more. We have the best therapists and I know he is going to do amazing. We all believe we are beginning to see some delays from Down Syndrome now and that it’s not preemie related. So forward we go. Please lift him up in your prayers as we have an occupational therapy eval coming up as well. #parkerandrew #mosaicdownsyndrome #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #t21
