As you can see we played a game of cat and mouse before school. Once that door opens she runs full throttle away from me to avoid the car seat lol.

I could just squeeze him all day!!! And today I kinda did. He's got a tummy bug and although fine in himself, we've had some hmmmm...........explosive incidents 😬. Plus I didn't want to send his germs into school, although when I told his teachers today I was informed that loads of the class of had it. Thanks for the heads up!! - - Anyway, as happy as I am that he's loving school, I've missed him these last few weeks. The afternoons were our together time and now I get no alone time with either of my boys, we are always a trio. And don't get me wrong, that's amazing, but it was nice today to just relax and play with River ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ - - - - wouldntchangeathing #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndromerocks #downsyndromelove #t21love #morealikethandifferent #theluckyfew #lovedoesntcountchromosomes #nothingdownaboutit #t21rocks #savedownsyndrome #upsyndrome #disabilityawareness #iamable #thisisme #abilitynotdisability #perfectlyimperfect #lifeisbetterwithyou #thehappynow #livebeautifully #celebratelife #documentyourdays #nothingisordinary #lifewithlittles #thislittlelightofmine #lifeisbetterwithyou #purebeauty #myboy #boymom

Hi! 😊 You may have noticed we've been quiet over here on IG. It's partly because with Frankie at school there's less opportunity for cute pics and she's got a yucky cold on top 😔 But we also had some less than stellar progress reports and I'd be lying if I said they weren't a blow. I needed some time. Because it's hard to hear that your child isn't succeeding when you want them to so badly. It also has us considering whether this is the right classroom placement for her after all. No one is moving her just yet but it's difficult to accept considering I pushed so hard for her to be there. Really it's not about my pride - I left that at the door the day I finally came to terms with her diagnosis - it's more that I feel badly that I might've shoehorned her into some place that she didn't naturally fit. But over the past few days I've realized that all I can do is make the best decision with the information we have at the time and then make adjustments along the way. Nothing is set in stone. And last night I had a dream that Frankie was whining about something but I couldn't figure out what it was. And then I looked down and saw her shoes didn't fit. Talk about metaphors...! What kind of mother would I be if I didn't change her shoes? #lifewithds #education #inclusion #inclusionmatters #preschool #thisis3 #morealikethandifferent #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndrome #justanextrachromosome #theluckyfew #lifeisbetterwithyou

This was one of the first pieces of Down syndrome awareness jewelry I received after Briggs was born. It came in our @brittanysbaskets care package! We have been chosen by the maker of this necklace @6arrowsdesigns to be brand representatives for their amazing shop! They have all sorts of beautiful jewelry, key chains, ornaments and more! . Purchases from their shop give back, as they routinely donate to Down syndrome related non-profits benefiting new parents on this path as well as those who have lost a kiddo with Ds. I especially love the poem that this necklace was inspired by. It really spoke to me after receiving Briggs’ diagnosis. {see photo 3} . .

Juliette’s Fall 2018 school picture! Yes, better late than never. Brandon and I worry like all parents when it comes to schools for our kids. As you may imagine finding a place for Juliette was more daunting because we wanted a school that would love her, encourage her, teach her and protect her as a child with Down syndrome know matter what. Through prayer and research we found the perfect place for this time in her life. Juliette loves her school and is all smiles at drop off and pick up. Her friends get excited when she walks through the door and can’t wait to hug her. She is treated just like the other kids. As our society continues to breakdown the stereotypes of people with differences and see they are more alike them than different, I’m confident we will continue to find the best schools for our girl to thrive and our world will be a better place for Jules and her friends. @thejulietteeffect #juliettelove #educateinspirethrive #downsyndrome #morealikethandifferent

“To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.” Five years! Five years ago, my first baby and Caleb’s big sis said “I do” to her love. Five years ago, my heart soared (and my hinney froze) as they exchanged vows. It was a beautiful wedding, filled with love and close friends, the perfect start of their lives together. And now an adorable little girl to share it with too. So happy for you Courtney and Steven - love you both! ❤️🎩💍👨‍👩‍👧 . . . #fiveyears #happyanniversary #love #family #daughter #igersjax #kidsofig #igersstaugustine #anniversary @courtnoid @smarshalltyler #fbf #flashbackfriday #fridayfeels

Giving her brother some extra love and “wip gloss”😂

E has been saying “Mama! Haircut!” for a while now, so we took her in to get a new do! She got 5” taken off and was crazy excited about the end result!😁 she was nervous during the process, but Zachary held her hand the entire time❤️ • I’ve read that some people with #alopecia experience an itchy/uncomfortable scalp when a new patch is coming in. She hasn’t let me fix her hair in a while and I’m wondering if this is why?🤷🏻‍♀️ We’ll be able to keep her hair down and keep it snack and tangle free now!🙌🏼😍

Soaking in every bit of dad this week! ❤️ • I wish I had gotten the last pic on video. Elizabeth was saying “go, Daddy! Goo!” While Zachary was saying “no more, dada! No more!” He’s the ying to her yang 👫!

We found out in November that Elizabeth has #Alopecia. It has been really aggressive the last 4-6 weeks and she has easily lost half of her hair! • Her outpatient therapists are some of the most supportive, and patient 😁 people in her life and have gone through every phase/stage/everything with us! Today they gave us the sweetest surprise! The entire clinic put together a basket full of the cutest hats and headbands for Ms. E to rock, a Dino for Zachary, and a beautiful water bottle for me😭❤️! Elizabeth was so excited to try on *all* of them...all 85 of them😂. • This therapy clinic has been with us since she was just weeks old and we just love them so much! Forever thankful for all that they do!! Seeing your little girl lose her hair is not easy, but she’s healthy, happy, and with a tribe like ours, there isn’t much to complain about 😁❤️!

Ever since you were born I knew I had to be extra strong for you and me both. I was scared to say the least. I didn’t know how life was going to be for you after you were born. All I knew was that I had to be prepared as much I as could be. During all of those sleepless nights alone with you, I would think a lot about how when you’d become older I would have to protect you from the world. I would get depressed at the thought that kids and/or adults would treat you different just because you were different. I never wanted to leave you alone because I know how mean people can be. But as I’m looking at you right now and realizing how far we’ve both come, I know in my heart that you’ll show those people that you can do whatever it is because you’re so strong, Santi. You’ve proven me wrong, you’ve proven the doctors wrong and you can prove the world wrong, too! No matter what always remember you have people who love you and believe in you. You can do literally anything. I love you so much my little warrior 💙 #ThoughtsAboutYou #BabyBoy #MoreAlikeThanDifferent

E and Z! The duo behind our laugh lines and grey hairs😁! • I was once so worried about adding a sibling to Elizabeth’s world. I was afraid that it would take time and focus away from her development, and that Zachary would get lost in the mix. I was so silly and so wrong! I can’t imagine one without the other! These two live for each other! E is such a mama bear to him, and he looks up to her in the sweetest way❤️

Oh Amelia....THE BEST start to 2019....a laugh 💗 Amelia rarely laughs, she just forgets how to, it might happen ever 3-4 months. But when you play with your child who is essentially non verbal and you make them laugh....priceless 😍 #love #daughter #goodtimes #2019 #newyearnewbeginnings #trisomy21 #downsyndrome #morealikethandifferent #theluckyfew #theamazingamelia

Tomorrow I go for a CT scan. They have to put me under anesthesia but my DR said only for 5 minutes or so. They are trying to look at my airways because something is swollen behind my neck. I think my mommy and daddy are more nervous than I am. I spend some quality time chewing on my sister today to calm them down. I’ll post soon!! 🧜🏻‍♀️ #theamazingariel #warriorbaby #DOWNunderthesea #changingthefaceofbeauty #trisomy21 #specialneeds #downsyndromeawareness #t21love #advocate #lifeisbetterwithyou #theluckyfew #nothingdownaboutit #upwithdown #morealikethandifferent #downrightperfect

the321roadtrip

We're on night 2. Falling asleep on the cpap or with the Aivro 2 doesn't seem to be problematic. We have a positive behavior plan in place for keeping it on, but when his sleepy natural instinct kicks in, that overrides the motivation to keep it on. One of the team members from Kaiser called today to check in. He said that Miles seemed happy, and full of energy and doing well, even with the lack of quality sleep. My response.... Just imagine what he would be like with sleep! Rob and I know what a difference sleep will make to Miles' everything. Speech, cognition, comprehension, endurance, memory. The list is endless. We couldn't pray for anything else for him right now, but a solution to his sleep problems. 💛💙💛💙💛💤💤💤💤💤 #321roadtrip #downsyndrome #sleepapnea #airvo2 #sleep #igotitdown

He’s just like any other 2 year old boy in nearly every way. We have some extra work each day and a few extra appointment but on a day to day basis raising my son with Down syndrome has been nearly identical to raising my son who doesn’t have Down syndrome. Now their personalities are polar opposites but that’s a different subject. Lol #toddlerlife #downsyndrome #typicaltoddler #morealikethandifferent #lifeofru #playingintherain #belovedson

Watering her toy horse...she may have drowned him 😳. When this girl gets an idea in her mind, not much can stop her.
