I wonder if these sleeping positions coincide with whatever he's dreaming about? Nevertheless, so adorable... #downforadventure #lairdbear #t21 #homiewithanextrachromie #lovedoesntcountchromosomes #morealikethandifferent #chromosomallyenhanced

Ryan was really feeling this tummy time swing for a while at @downsyndromeoflouisville in todays infant exercise class! He was doing good with tummy time and was even showing off some side lying. That or Ms Dawn is an angel. Lol. He proved me wrong! He has improved so much with his tummy time over the past few weeks, so proud of this guy!

I #mustache you a question - if Ryan’s not the cutest kid on the planet, then who is? #trickquestion A. I wished I looked that cute when I yawned; instead, I look like some sort of scary creature. B. I did not know which one of these pictures was the best, so, all!! 😍 #ladiesman

I meant to post this yesterday. We finally went to meet a friend from HIGH SCHOOL - like...that’s many moons ago. Anyway, we hope to meet her little guy soon, he’s got Down Syndrome and is 9! Let me tell you, Down Syndrome is ONE condition with so many different stories and differences! Every heart story is different, every diagnosis is different, every person is different! It really blows my mind. I have grown to LOVE diagnosis stories and my first concern is always how baby’s hearts are! So meet Ryan’s new friend! It only took me months to talk myself into reaching out because I was afraid she wouldn’t even remember me. And everyone kept telling me it’s fine it’s fine. Lol. 😍

I have two days left of maternity leave. Spending 6 weeks with this little dude has been the greatest pleasure of my life. Although I feel my productivity has reached an all-time low, between feeding, diapering, washing bottles, some laundry, baby cuddles (the BEST, hands down), and just trying survive on 3-5 hours of sleep a night. I'm usually an awesome napper, but this kid is not, so the whole nap when they nap thing hasn't happened. Only two weeks til Spring Break, than 9 weeks til Summer... I just want to spend every second I can with Laird, nevermind I have the rest of my life. It's the GREATEST! He's the greatest!! Ok long post over..have a great day! #downforadventure #lairdbear #t21 #homiewithanextrachromie #lovedoesntcountchromosomes #morealikethandifferent #chromosomallyenhanced

ALWAYS choose kind! It doesn’t cost a thing to smile, it doesn’t take much time to reach out to someone, helping others can come in many different ways...by asking a friend if you could bring their kids home from school, by bringing a warm meal to someone who’s been sick, or better yet reach out to those less fortunate, sometimes our lives are so very busy and it’s so hard to find an hour to go feed the homeless, but how about making a donation instead? We can make this world a better place. Yes WE can! But kindness is also in inclusion, in acceptance in respect. I want that for my kids. I want that for your kids! I want it for humanity, no matter what our abilities are we are all worthy of all the good things in life! Like @theellenshow says every single day: “be kind to one another” @theshineproject my #standupandshinechallenge today is to serve others, I’m a mama and I serve my people every single day, but today, though small, I bought a stranger a coffee, it’s cold in Canadaland and this gesture is big for some! ❤️ have a beautiful day friends!

I love it when he puts his hands on the bottle. No, he doesn’t hold it yet. Just sometimes puts his hands there. But it’s so much more than when we had to just incline him to feed him and his arms would just flopped back. Also, his pinky there, it’s a little bent - that’s a marker of Down Syndrome, did you know? But just because someone has a bent pinky finger doesn’t mean they have Down Syndrome. It’s just a significant amount of people with Down Syndrome have that feature. Let’s all look at our pinkies now! 😆😉

I am not a confrontational person, so please hear me when I say that I'm not trying to call anyone out or make anyone feel bad. I try really hard not to be overly sensitive when people ask well-meaning questions, and I also try to give people grace. But I do want to share something with you. One question I cannot bear to hear is, "So, how high-functioning is he?" I understand the reasoning behind this question. People are geniunely curious about what Abel can and cannot do and how he compares with other kids his age. But honestly? I do not even know how to answer that question. If I compare him to other three year olds, the words "severely delayed," which are written throughout his medical records, cross my mind. No, he isn't walking or talking or feeding himself. What if I told you that he is low-functioning? What would you even do with that information? But if I compare him to where he was a year ago? This kid has achieved more than I could have ever hoped. He lived two years alone in an orphanage, and he's made incredible gains since coming home. What if I told you he is high-functioning? What would you do with that information? I have no idea what he will or won't accomplish in his life. I don't know if he'll live alone or have a job or even if he'll learn to talk. In reality, none of us know what our kids will do as adults! This little boy is three years old. Three. He has an entire lifetime ahead of him to learn and grow and completely amaze us. Whether he is high or low functioning does not matter. What matters is that he is fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God. God made no mistakes in making Abel and He made Abel in such a way as to display His own glory. So please, don't ask me to put a value label on my son's "functioning." I know he will surpass any of those expectations anyway. 🙂

Today’s challenge is to go into a dark room and then turn on a light. I did this challenge when my little Jordan Grace couldn’t sleep in the middle of the night. She always wants me to sing to her and then she promises to go back to bed. There’s a lot of songs she mentions before she decided for the one she really wants. These moments are so precious. Both of my girls make me want to be a better mama. I always feel guilty for being in such a big dark hole when we were given Jordan Grace’s diagnosis. It’s very hard to forgive myself. And the guilt sometimes takes over me 😔 slowly as I write my memoir I’m working through my feelings, my guilt, and the fact that I’ve been truly blessed. ❤️ day 3 of #standupandshinechallenge @theshineproject The video is precious and I couldn’t be more proud, but my words were tough to post. This song is one of her favorites called “pimpón”

Head on over to one of our favorite accounts @littlest_warrior to read our story on their website 💙 #Repost @littlest_warrior with ・・・ Meet Jordan Grace! #littlestwarriorwednesday Our four year old started asking for a baby sister, every night she would ask God to send her a baby sister during our family prayers. My husband and I began trying, we were ready to add a little one to complete our family. It wasn't as easy as our first pregnancy, we tried for months, the stress overwhelmed me. I was thinking maybe our family would not be able to grow. That sweet day came, and we were finally expecting. We were thrilled and sharing our news with everyone! We didn't wait the 12 weeks to share our great gift on the way with all our friends and family. Our Ana Maria would kiss my growing belly and share with us how much she already loved the baby. We would wait to find out if she was going to have a brother or a sister. She was a surprise herself. At 20 weeks, we drove to the lab to see our precious little miracle on the way. The car ride was filled with laughter and song. While laying patiently to get all the official pictures, I kept chatting away with the technician who seemed quiet and focused. When she was finished she said she would be back in a little while with the doctor. Greg and Ana Maria came in and we waited patiently to see the baby again, the fun way this time. We had no idea our world was about to change; in that instant there would be a before and after in our lives. The doctor came in and told us the baby had a heart defect. Tears immediately burned down my cheeks and continued to flow down my shirt. Then I felt the room spinning, too much information I couldn't retain, I stopped listening and began to worry. Would I lose the baby? Could I walk carefully enough to not fall and hurt the baby even more? I couldn't breathe or speak. I'm sure I sobbed loud enough to scare my precious daughter, the big sister to be, who was so looking forward to having a baby to play with. My first words were "is it a boy or a girl?" We were having a baby girl, God had answered my little one's prayers, but with conditions. Devastation filled my soul.

The first account I ever followed of someone who had Down syndrome was CoCo and Livvy. These girls are so incredibly precious, though we’ve never met, we love them and pray for them. They have impacted our lives in a great way. One year we were even in Disneyland on the very same day, but we were not lucky enough to meet this beautiful family. Sweet precious CoCo @lilcocobea is sick 😢 and beautiful Livvy @anewlife4livvymae has a dual diagnosis of DS and autism, it’s been a rough road for her. It was Livvy’s birthday recently and the girls wanted to sing to her. Who has inspired you on Instagram?? I’d love to hear what your favorite accounts are. ❤️

Y’all! I am seriously loving this kids motivation the past few days. #ryanstummytimesaga I’m gonna need this weather to stick around so I can keep these windows open. It’s working wonders. He was even reaching for things WHILE on his tummy today. This is a breakthrough. So proud of this guy! Rolled to his back a few times. Now I’m looking forward to him pushing up with them arms! 💪🏼💪🏼

Entire meal started and finished by my 10 year old. From forming to burger patties to roasting broccoli. He did it all himself. He is going to start taking one meal a week to plan and prepare. I am so incredibly proud of his hard work. The buns he was toasting got too dark and he almost gave up saying “this is too hard”. Hated to tell him to get used to that feeling😂.. I care more that he stuck with it than the fact that I didn’t have to cook tonight! ...almost 😁👌🏽 #TheLuckyFew #DesignerGenes #LifeIsBetterWithYou #ChromosomallyEnhanced #Trisomy21 #DownSyndrome #NothingDownAboutHer #NoDownSide #HomieWithAnExtraChromie #LotteryWinner #LivingItUp #t21 #DownRightPerfect #Worthy #MoreAlikeThanDifferent #ChangingTheFaceOfBeauty #RockThe21 #ShoutTheirWorth #SaveDownSyndrome #UpSyndrome #DontLimitMe #ClassicalEducation #Homeschool #ClassicalConversations #AdvocateLikeAMother #homeschool #homeskills #classicalconversations #homeeducation #cooking

The moment our eyes met, her umbilical cord still connected to me. It had been months of knowing she would be a little different. But this moment was when I knew everything would be ok, I knew she would show us the way. 4 years ago today, I gave birth to our little Jordan Grace, we had prayed for her for so long, and she was finally in my arms. These past 4 years have been filled with everything from open heart surgery to all her firsts, filled with songs, laughter, slowing down and so much beauty...she’s come a long way and showed not only us, but the world that she’s determined to break all barriers and she will succeed. Happy birthday to our precious little one who’s not a baby anymore! 💛
