Bodie had a doctor appointment recently. He got mommy and daddy all to himself for a solid 45 minutes and he was in heaven. Our time spent waiting for the doctor was filled with Bodie singing, interpretative dancing, speeches oozing emotion, and plenty of animal impersonation. This kid is a walking one boy show. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #homiewithanextrachromie #heartwarrior #purposefullymade #bodieluke #heisworthy #chromosomallyenhanced #honestmotherhood #youcansitwithus #wouldntchangeathing #shouttheirworth #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #theluckyfew #seekadventure #iowa #iowacity #upsyndrome #dsawareness #downrightperfect #differentisbeautiful #changingthefaceofbeauty #changetheworld #upsyndrome #aroundiowa #dsawareness

We went to see Santa today at the Holiday Open House put on by Stockton’s Family Resource Network. This is an amazing event for special needs kiddos of all ages to come and engage in some fun activities, have some food, and get their pictures taken with Santa! Here is a shot of us in front of the Christmas tree at the event, since we will be receiving our Santa pictures from them in the mail. We are so thankful to be included in this amazing network of staff, parents, and other sweet little children. It warms my heart to see such love, cooperation, and advocacy come together under one roof. Thank you Family Resource Network for putting the Norris family in the holiday spirit!🎅🏼🎄🎁 (Shirt by @goshoutlove for Emery and @mothering_rare ❤️) #joplynsjourney #joplyndelilanorris #firstpicturewithsanta #holidayopenhouse #familyresourcenetwork #stocktonca #specialneedskids #specialneedsbaby #specialneedsfamily #santapictures #christmastree #firstchristmas #familypicture #christmaspictures #firstchristmaspicture #advocacy #advocatelikeamother #norrisfamilychristmas #goshoutlove #carryon #carryontogether #adore_able #wereallable #rareisbeautiful #littlestwarrior #rarechromosomedisorder #chromocutie #chromosomallyenhanced

Two awesome things happened this month. First, we were able to meet with Monica Mitchell, our TalkTools therapist, for multiple hours AND Annabelle had her tonsils and adenoids removed! It was great to spend time with Monica and to touch base on all of our oral motor efforts. Annabelle has made great strides in all areas of her speech over the years, however Monica (along with our ENT) felt like her constant drainage is really starting to get in the way of her progression. The constant drainage and stuffiness causes Annabelle to breathe out of her mouth because she her nose is so plugged up which then causes open mouth posture which then affects the development of her palate, jaw, mouth, etc which then in turn prohibits correct coordination of lips, tongue, and jaw movements which are mandatory for clear speech. Basically, in order for Annabelle to be able to move forward, we need to help clear up her constant congestion. We understand that the removal of tonsils and adenoids does not help everyone, but we were willing to give it a shot. ~Lanie, Annabelle's momma Read the full blog post at TalkTools.com/Annabelle

These boys are beating each other up all day, until they both decide to sit down for a minute at the table. They love this thing sooooo much! Hunter does so well getting in and out of it correctly, definitely a proud Mommy! Thanks @thestep2company for a table my boys love!

When I got the phone call from my midwife that you had the potential of having an extra chromosome, time froze still. A lot happened in that brief moment inside/outside of time. A lot. Many things were released, and many things flowed in. I am a believer in the addage that you are given what you can handle. I could see the assumptions of who I thought you would be, destroyed. Then I could see beyond to how small I was for being so arrogant that I thought I'd define you before you were born. And then there was a void, an unknown. I had no idea who you were going to be like, what you would like to do, what you would look like. And looking into this void is a scary place. It is unknown. It is what the brain does very well covering up in all areas of the day but can't here. Looking into the void means the chatterbox brain that always thinks it knows...has been locked away. In this naked space I hung in time, frozen. In this now moment, I was out of the way enough to became a vassel to receive. The new awareness flowed in like a river of sunlight to thaw the smallness in me. My first gift of many that I will receive on this journey, I am sure...I have YOU in my belly. You chose me to come through. You are the one that gets to define you. Incarnating outside of expectations, you truly get to follow your bliss. And I am here to support you. This is the Divine moment when we are initiated into the #luckyfew tribe. We have gone to the source, lost our emotional baggage, felt true love/ oneness, picked up our sword and awoke as a warrior, an advocate, a nourisher, a more whole human being. A DS diagnosis is like an alchemists crucible...in goes the ego to be burnt up. In goes the arrogance of thinking you know things about your baby, in goes caring about what people think, in goes friendships with petty small minded people...It is a burning down until it is just you and the gold, the elixir of life called the Divine, our true selves that you, my love, I can see are here to teach me all about! #down_syndrom_naturally

🎥 Off Camera 🎥 Soooo much to do! Check out this mango-licious tray of massive R2E2 mangoes! 😋 All these plans and not enough time to edit shows! The pipeline is full through to next year. Note Elijah’s new Marimba too! Second-hand - see how it cleaned up later.

Did you know that Dec. 3rd is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities? The observance of the Day aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. It also seeks to increase awareness of gains to be derived from the integration of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life. My life has become so much more enriched because of people with disabilities. Imagine how many more lives could be enriched if people just focused on similarities instead of differences. #takingthescenicroute #morealikethandifferent #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndromelove #downsyndromerocks #theluckyfew #downsyndromeisbeautiful #chromosomallyenhanced #homiewithanextrachromie #seetheability #alittleextra #designergenes #upsyndrome #nothingdownaboutit #t21 #212121 #trisomy21 #shouttheirworth #differentisthenewnormal #luckiestmomever #instagood #photooftheday #dsdn #toddlerlife #toddlersofinstagram #sototallyworthit #notspecialneedsjusthumanneeds #notbroken

Tonight begins my favorite part of this season! The Advent season starts tonight and so does the first night of Chanukah. Every night until Christmas we light a fire, make a hot drink and take time to read and prepare our hearts for the gift. This focus on preparing my heart and not just for the gifts on Christmas morning has radically changed my experience of this holiday. We use Unwrapping the Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp . The big book is the Jesse Tree that goes with her book. We also use the Advent storybook series by Arnold Ytreeide. There are 4 books in his series and we read one a year. Both of these resources are incredible read-alouds! We are also going to be studying the Hebrew prayers that we say during Chanukah. Just like the rest of the year, I need to take time and think about what we are saying and why. THIS is my favorite part. #chanukah #advent

Daddy’s busiest time of year is winter. He is coaching 3 of the 4 basketball teams we follow, in addition to owning a business. Bodie misses daddy (so do the rest of us) but their limited time together is even sweeter as Bodie soaks up as much attention from him as he can. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #homiewithanextrachromie #heartwarrior #purposefullymade #bodieluke #heisworthy #chromosomallyenhanced #honestmotherhood #youcansitwithus #wouldntchangeathing #shouttheirworth #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #theluckyfew #seekadventure #iowa #iowacity #upsyndrome #dsawareness #downrightperfect #differentisbeautiful #changingthefaceofbeauty #changetheworld #upsyndrome #aroundiowa #dsawareness

Last Saturday was Bella’s actual birthday, but seeing as her sister entered the world the day before we were unexpectedly occupied. . Today we are celebrating Bella’s miraculous nine years here on earth. In her first ten days she was life flown to a hospital that could adequately mend her broken heart (AV septal defect and coarctation of the aorta). On that tenth day, my husband and I drove through a blizzard at night to see our baby girl before heading into OR. . A week later her patch needed a repair. She was so tiny that the patch came undone. Risks abounded with her delicate needs and tricky solutions, but we felt safe and confident in the hands of the cardiologist at @childrensomaha. . Bella spent a month and a half in the hospital after arriving, and many trips and admissions in the hospital during her first year. It was a rough and rocky start. One that only affords is now with a unique and humbling opportunity to be nothing more than grateful for God’s grace and mercy. . Today we have friends we only have made because of Bella. Not just friends with littles also who have Down syndrome, but people who have been moved by her story. We are humbled and grateful to everyone who celebrates her life with us each year. Thank you! 🐞 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #watchthemgrow #autumnaesthetic #documentyourdays #uniteinmotherhood #morealikethandifferent #chromosomallyenhanced #trisomy21 #heartdefectawareness #specialneedsparent #specialneedskids #t21 #familyiseverything #motherhoodrising #motherhoodslens #risenmotherhood #letthembelittle #littleandbrave #mendedhearts #heartsurgerysurvivor #thisismotherhood #lifeasmama #nothingdownaboutit #homiewithanextrachromie #changingthefaceofbeauty

Recognizing uniqueness is celebrated in snowflakes. Water is revered for freezing in it's own lines of pattern, for looking different. So too could our society dazzle if we would celebrate the unique amongst ourselves.
