Get your very own felt board! Link located in our bio ❤️ . . . #Repost @somethingalittleextra ・・・ Fear is a liar. If I could go back to my 14 week pregnant self and give my self a piece of advice, it would be that fear is a liar. Why is it that we are so afraid of the unknown? I guess for me I like to be in control, so the unknown gives me a lot of anxiety... but now I know I am the lucky few. New blog post is up. Link in bio. I’m sharing about fear, and overcoming fear and anxiety! I know I’m not the only one whose been there. . . . . #overcominganxiety #overcomingfear #theluckyfew #downsyndrome #upsyndrome #momblog #blogger #motherhood #candidbaby #happybaby #babyboy #love #iamwonderfullymade #momlife #newpost #joshuajames #nothingdownaboutit
My Mama officially shared my confirmed DS diagnosis today! I love you! 🖤 Banyan #Repost @coco_bythesea with @get_repost ・・・ About Banyan At 12 weeks pregnant, with @beingbanyan , I had this feeling of abundant love & perfection take over my whole being..coming from the little human growing within! I remember telling a couple of girlfriends that very day that I felt so good about this pregnancy and the perfection of the soul joining our family. Later that afternoon I received the call letting me know that this babe was high risk for Trisomy 21, an extra copy of the 21st chromosome (aka Down Syndrome). My World seemed to crumble in that moment! We opted out of a confirmatory diagnostic test (amniocentesis) while pregnant and decided to wait until after he was born for a confirmed diagnosis. It wouldn’t have changed anything for our open arms and heart for this baby we were expecting! Never in my life has the lesson been so loud and clear to trust and listen to my gut and intuition, which was telling me all along (as it was that day we got the high risk news) that all was perfect and divinely aligned for me and my family! When Banyan was 3 weeks old we received his confirmed Down Syndrome diagnosis. The combination of Banyan’s DS diagnosis, his AV Canal heart defect, and a couple of other minor and then major health scares it has been quite the journey! (Haven’t been able to pull together my thoughts and share.) At 6.5 weeks old today we are in complete awe of Banyan and his powerful soul and lessons. I’ve never met such a calm, gentle, yet strong soul who is All Love!! We officially join #theluckyfew as parents to a child with Down syndrome. So far we are finding it is like a secret club of especially grateful and evolved people!! There is nothing to fear and there truly is #nothingdownaboutit ! #downsyndromeawareness #trisomy21 #upsyndrome #downrightperfect #homiewithanextrachromie
Over the last few days I have been bowled over by the number of shares the video that I put together, to explain what Down Syndrome is to primary/junior school aged children, has had. It’s not only had over 60,000 views on Facebook, it has had around 700 shares plus a whole heap more from people who contacted me privately for the film. I have had parents of children who go to Oscars school, stop me in the street to tell me that they have shown the video to their kids (which was just so fab❤️) aswell as others who commented that they felt the time wasn’t right just yet to show their children, because to them, Oscar is just Oscar... no explanation needed ❤️ I have had a few messages over the weekend from people letting me know they’d shown it in their school assemblies. But I really wanted to share this one with you.... as she sent her message along with this photo of Oscar up on their big screen... “Thank you so much for that lovely video! I shared this with 200 primary school children this morning and they loved Oscar! Had some fabulous discussions back in class with my Year 6s and we talked about why you call your blog ‘Don’t Be Sorry’. Was quite emotional for me: I have a 5 year old boy and I have followed your story for a few years now so they’ve been growing up together. I just wanted to thank you all and especially Oscar who is now a little star in our school. With love” So huge huge HUGE thanks to all those who have liked, commented and passed it on. It’s just so flippin brilliant that we’ve managed to raise such positive awareness. You guys are the best xxxx #raisingawareness #education #schools #theluckyfew #nothingdownaboutit #SEN #parentingblog #parentingblogger #pblogger #pbloggers #ukparentingblogger #ukparentingblog #mumsofinsta #momsofinsta #downsyndrome #dontbesorry

Looked over this morning and saw these weird marks on Harrison’s cheeks. I started wondering what he did in his sleep, and then it hit me - that was my lip color! So what did I do??? I gave him another one! 💋 💋 💋 • • • #bigadventureswithlittleh #nothingdown #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #dsdn #changingthefaceofbeauty #morealikethandifferent

Far too wet to go out on #Sprogravel adventure bike today.. so we took an adventure in @hoody_chris T5 Transporter that he kindly lent us to transport bikes and furniture.. lots of ‘oooahh!!!’ And pointing at scenery .. Arundel Castle and following a tractor got the loudest ‘oooooohhhhh’ #nothingdownaboutit #vanlife
Flashback to when my mama was 19 weeks pregnant with me and shared how she found out at 12 weeks pregnant that I was high risk for #T21 . I was sending her and my family sooo much Love! I have an abundance of love to give!! 🖤 Banyan #Repost @coco_bythesea with @get_repost ・・・ We are “Expecting” another Baby on Board! We are Expecting a wise old soul to join our family late July! He has already taught us soooo much and has a strong teacher/healer energy. He is all Love, and it feels incredibly apparent that he is perfectly aligned with our family! Did I mention that he is “High Risk” for Down Syndrome!? The geneticist’s say it is 91-95% likely, but we feel that it is truly more of a 50-60% chance. We won’t know until he is born and have realized that it is of no significance to know because of this absurdly strong feeling that he is in perfect alignment! He is already a blessing beyond utter belief and has taught us so many lessons in Trusting our Intuition as well as Conscious Parenting as we proceed on our Path! We couldn’t be more excited to share about him and can’t wait to hold him in our arms!! His name is Banyan, and his gestational age is 19 Weeks, however we have been connecting with him long before conception! Please check out and feel free to share Banyan’s full story from pre-conception to present: @beingbanyan (start with the first post as page one of his book). ❤️ Nicole, Jason @sigitysocal , & Elliana #19weeks #consciousparenting #mindfulmama #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew

Such a lovely day at Rand farm park with the lincolnshire down's group 💙💛
Trying to take good pictures together never works 😂 He’s been having so much fun with his cousins I was told he slept great and is enjoying himself! Im thankful Bryan has such an amazing family 😭😍
The look you make when you finally meet your social media BFF for the first time 😍 we’ve been following @littlelucy_james and @mrsmaloringuyen for a few years now and finally got the chance to meet them this weekend! If #downsyndrome does one thing it’s that it has the ability to bring complete strangers together. Matt & Mal live all the way in St. Louis and happened to be in Florida for the week so we just knew this was our chance to finally see our little girls together! I’m hoping Lucy’s sweet little personality rubs off on Ella, because she has far too much of mommy’s sass lately 😂 • • #upsyndrome #theluckyfew #nothingdownaboutit

When your this cute you just have to smile at yourself. So George is a lovely distraction when you get news that you don’t want to hear. It’s lucky when you are George’s age as you have no care in the world. So yesterday we have come on another holiday (I know another holiday) but it will be the last one for a while as George’s dad will have to work away for a bit. So we are in Sunny Norfolk (well not sunny at all as it’s raining 😂☔️) but we get to see loads more family and will be extremely busy all week. So a typical Sunday for Brits is to eat a Sunday roast. So we went to the local pub carvery. Which was lovely and we had a great meal. George loved it. Not the fact of the food being lovely as he does not eat, but there was 2 young waitresses he had his eye on. His head turned like he was an owl honestly he is such an Essex Boy 🤣 (people in the UK will get that joke) still he was happy #smilelikegeorge #lookinthemirror #ladiesman #flirt #charmer #essexboy #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndromerocks #downsyndromelove #downsyndrom #downsyndroom #downsendromu #sindromededown #sindromedoamor #syndroomvandown #trisomy21 #trisomie21 #trisomia21 #t21 #cromossomo21 #cromossomodoamor #upsyndrome #nothingdownaboutit #morealikethandifferent #specialneeds #sundayfunday #gorgeousgeorge #mooiboy #downsnobounds

I’m pretty sure I’ve met my cap for emotions this weekend. The tears were out of control, eyes swollen, so tired, but so so Happy! I guess I was long over due for the flow. It’s been on hold for a while, but watching these amazing families @adreamretreat and having a heart-to-heart with @etst has released my heart. I’m in love with these people that look just like our family. They reminded me it’s ok...we’re going to have crazy moments, but it’s ok! Dream...then dream bigger! Accept what we cannot change(and I’m talkin’ about wet bath towels left on the floor kinda stuff 🤦🏼‍♀️🤪🤪). Love and live out loud. God is an amazing God! And when I cry out to Him, He always shows me grace! Thank you for these precious people! Just look at my amazing family that God has entrusted Tony and I with... I so love us! ❤️#dontsweatthesmallstuff #TheLuckyFew #ADreamretreat #NothingDownAboutIt #DownSyndrome #tri21 #Extraordinary #TheBestIsYetToCome

Working on speech development is going to be a large part of Finley’s preschool experience when she starts in March and watching herself in a mirror is a great tool. 💕We are extremely fortunate that Fin is so verbal! 💕Like anything in life, the more you can communicate the better you can be understood. 💕We just can’t wait to see what she has to say! 💕💕💕 . . . #chroniclesofcuteness #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndrome #speech #toddlerlife #theluckyfew #therapy #changingthefaceofbeauty #themoreyouknow #finleyandbean

Everyone in the house is sick leading to bad sleeps all around. Yesterday we put the girls in the car and grabbed a coffee in hopes that a drive would lull them to sleep. While the drive only led to Grace being able to take a nap.. we also got a gorgeous impromptu waterfront walk in a neighboring city. . The girls were particularly fascinated by the geese 🦆 <- a duck but you get the idea. . . . . . . #twinlife #twinmom #twingirls #chromosomecutie #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #upwithdown #upsyndrome #LifeIsBetterWithYou #downrightperfect #morealikethandifferent #downsyndrome #trisomy21 #t21

It has been confirmed that Brompton was seen in the car park of The Range in Aldershot at just after 12.00pm on Friday 14th September 2018. Unfortunately the lady wasn’t able to pick him up. I checked the car park at approx 12.45pm and he wasn’t there. Someone must have picked up!! I am so overwhelmed that my original post has been shared over 1000 times! Please, please share again and keep your eyes and ears open for Brompton. Let’s get him home to our little heart warrior where he belongs. Caspar’s cot is too big every night without him xxxx #lost #missing #thebromptonfountain #bromptonthebat #nothingdownaboutcaspar #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndrome #upsyndrome #trisomy21 #t21 #theluckyfew #mummyblogger #bromptonbaby #heartwarrior
When you get that pose just right lol🌟😉 . . .Lord knows what we would do with ourselves if we didn’t have Special Olympics in our lives. 😆 Up early and out the door yesterday morning for another SO competition, this time County Bowling. In FL, County games are the first step in competitions, with Area games shortly afterwards (usually a month later), followed by State Games for those who qualify and are selected. Caleb scored another Blue Ribbon 🏅, with scores of 79 and 75. Practice has really helped since he started back this summer when he was averaging in the 50’s, so all those trips to the bowling alley are paying off! So we keep practicing until Area Games come along next month and hope that he keeps improving! @specialolympicsduval @specialolympicsfl @specialolympics #specialolympics #playunified #liveunified #choosetoinclude #bowling #igersjax #calebscrew 💙💛 #kidsofinstagram #iamable
