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

Had so much fun with my little love and @themotherhoodtribe today @cowabungabaydraper for @fawndesign costumer appreciation! 💙 Londynn is loving the water lately which makes me so excited because the water is something that makes this Mamas heart so so happy!
cupcakes and lunch (yes in that order) with our buds today!
We had so many great fundraising ideas submitted to us last year by Team Captains for our 2017 Summer of FUN-draising campaign, and we can't wait to see what you've all been up to this summer! Stay tuned for details for the 2018 contest, coming soon! #flashbackfriday #downsyndrome #fundraising #feelgoodfriday #downsyndromeawareness #theluckyfew

James wearing his Great Great Grandpa’s cowboy hat and swinging on a swing all of us grew up on!! He had a lot of fun going to see his Papa Jim today!! #jamessullivanparks #lydialeighparks #theluckyfew #cowboy #justaswingin
Amazing day at the Fair!!! 🤗(SWIPE). This is the 1st year that Olivia thoroughly enjoyed every part of it...she played the games alongside Robert, she loved the shows and got on rides! She won 2 prizes on her own, and the smile on her face after she attempted the basketball game...and was still given this pink bear, was priceless!!! ...❤️As a parent to a child with special needs, I often worry if Olivia will be able to do the “normal” things that her peers are doing. Days like this, my heart smiles (and cries) with joy. She is right alongside Robert (who is a yr younger), doing things together. Yay!!! 👏🏼👌👍 #downsyndrome #ocfair #fun #momblogger #specialneedsparenting #theluckyfew
We had a great time @jonathansdream playground today. So much fun, accessible for all and shady in the early morning. All pluses in our book. A great treat after Gus’s hearing test today. #downsyndrome #t21 #theluckyfew #gusgnomies #jonathansdream #playgroundfun
Happy to snuggle my heart warrior! Brother and I had a fun day, but we always miss sister when we’re away, so we’re giving her extra lovins! 😍💋 Nothing to update yet, just trying to soak her up before we leave tomorrow for Tulsa for a week. ☹️ Was really hoping she would be coming with us.. hopefully when we’re back she’ll be ready for discharge. 💖 #chdwarrior #upsyndrome #downsyndrome #theluckyfew #getRemihome #superRemi

I’m 40 next year and I had never been camping before this week. Technically I still haven’t been camping because @readycampuk was definitely glamping - the site at Norman’s Bay was a very sweet set up, clean, organised, right next to a beautiful beach. We were also lucky with the weather, the kids had an evening bath in their padding pool in the sun 😎. We had breakfast outside whilst Rex moaned and moaned about wanting to be on the swings (the close proximity of a play park was a blessing and a curse), we had fish and chips on the beach for dinner and an ice cream van came around too. Bliss (and chaos, obv). #awesomeaudreyemily #kingrexyroo #motherhoodunplugged #motherhood #mumblogger #instakids #childhoodunplugged #theluckyfew #holidayswithkids #colourinmysquare #normansbay #readycampuk #glamping #brightonmum #pblogger #pbloggers #readycamp

But for real. My husband can attest to the accuracy of this. 🤣🤣. Harper is seriously Buddy Walk 2018 ready! She has her custom headband from @lillambbowtique and her custom made teether from @milliebethdesigns. Both in Ds colors. How amazing is that? Now we just need to make her a onesie since we know the shirts wont quite fit her just yet. But otherwise shes ready to support her big sister!!!. . . .

Kara {loves} to talk about bunnies 🐰 So you can imagine our excitement when we stumbled across a bunny nest in our backyard! Oh, Kara will be SO thrilled to see an actual baby bunny!!! 🙌🏻 .....or not so much?? Of course our girl has to be as unpredictable as she can 🙄 Even if she wasn’t impressed, the rest of us loved monitoring & checking on them every morning as they grew. I have to admit, I was asking Jacob what it would take to keep one. What can I say? 🤷🏻‍♀️I get attached. 🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇🐇 *We made sure it was okay to pick up the babies before doing so. Bunnies are now grown & have fled the nest 😭 They didn’t even say goodbye. #babylemonade #babybunny #dramaqueen #bunny #momlife #thisismylife #downsyndrome #lifeisbetterwithyou #theluckyfew #downsyndromeblogger #momblogger #animallover #deathbybunny #scaredtodeath #somanytears #bestpoutyfaceever #poutylips

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
When all 4 big sisters are gone on a “Daddy Daughter” outing and big brother’s on a Church trip, guess who’s the big man of the house? 😳...Colty man.😆 And guess how I get a shower in?...Very quickly. . Colt and Nic go in the Pack n play, that we all know Colt can climb out of faster than most can take a step. I try to talk up the whole “you’re the big brother and I need you to take care of Nic” role which buys me about 2 minutes, before Colt is jumping ship to explore my makeup, toilet paper rolls and whatever else looks like fun. . I am so thankful that my older kids love being with there little brothers or I might never get a full shower in.😳😆 #happyfriday #thesetwo #brothers #theluckyfew

Flash back Friday because I can’t believe this little babe has been making this world a better place for almost a year now! Today was Adley’s official due date. I just knew she was going to come on her own before then but she never did. I obviously know why now, because she had to be extra and do things when she was good and ready! And of course had to do it very dramatically! 😅 I do not miss those NICU days one bit. But man do I wish I hadn’t of wished them away so fast! Those were my only times spent with my daughter as a newborn. When I brought her home she was almost a 2 month old. Oh how I wish I could go back! 💗💗
Hoy ha sido nuestro primer día de playa gallego!!. Ha hecho un día espectacular y el agua, como no puede ser de otra manera, congelada pero muy muy congelada. Aunque eso a Víctor no pareció importarle lo más mínimo. Se bañó como el que más y en el agua se reía de los nervios que le entraba de verla taaaaaan fría. Eso sí, la playa paridisiaca!!!! . #t21 #downaddicts #theluckyfew #sinfiltros #sindromededown #fgarrigou #changingthefaceofbeauty #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndrome #conmiradademadre #differentcapabilities #extracromosomeextracute #autenticos #diferentecomotu #galifornia #miñaterragalega

💁🏼‍♀️ 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
I’ve been in a real funk the past week. . Have you ever set really big goals for yourself... and then missed them... missed them by a lot?! That is me this month. . And apparently I’ve spent the past week feeling bad for myself. Not a good look. I’m taking today to appreciate how far I’ve come instead of dwelling on how far I still have to go. . Just because I didn’t meet the deadline I had set for myself does NOT mean I’m giving up. Something like this would have been enough to completely derail me in the past. I didn’t (and still don’t) like to fail. But I’ve grown a lot in these past months and can now recognize that it isn’t failure unless you give up. . And I have no intention of doing so. #goalgetter . . . . . . #twinlife #twinmom #twingirls #chromosomecutie #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #upwithdown #upsyndrome #LifeIsBetterWithYou #downrightperfect #morealikethandifferent #downsyndrome #trisomy21 #t21 #bossbabe #nevergiveup #motivation

This happened yesterday. A private one-on-one lesson to determine placement for my daughter with Down syndrome at one of the best professional Ballet schools in our state. Half way through my daughter said, “I’m so happy.” My heart filled with joy. Our journey here included heartache. When we moved, I tried to register her for dance at a studio close to our house. As soon as the owners knew my child has Down syndrome, they said, “we’ve tried to work with kids like that, it doesn’t work.” I assured them, “you have never worked with MY child, and I’m telling you she will be just fine.” They would not even consider a trial period and said the best place for her was at a studio offering adaptive dance. The owner even sent me links to a few places. They never even met her. They never even considered the possibility that she was capable. In their eyes she was a kid like “that.” Taking away her individuality and full humanity without ever considering or witnessing her potential. We did try an adaptive dance class. She liked it, but it was not the best fit for her so we only did half a year. When I reached out to this ballet school I was unsure of what they would say. Her diagnosis was never even an issue, “we believe everyone can dance” the teacher said. And my daughter did. This is inclusion. This is seeing potential. This is the true power of dance. Everyone can dance. #downsyndrome #theluckyfew #everyonecandance #balletisforeveryone
