That Friday feeling! Random thoughts for a Friday - .Saw the movie @greatestshowman last month and still singing the songs in my head. Terrific soundtrack - we loved it!🎶🎶 .When will Florida come to her senses and get back to Florida weather? Tired of cold. This is not why we live here 😨 .Will the @jaguars really beat the @Patriots ? Is Tom Brady really a robot in disguise? Can’t wait for Sunday at 3pm to see what happens. 🏈 .Happy Friyay! . #fbf #fridayfeels #weekendvibes #igersjax #instakids #calebscrew💙💛 . . . .📸: @giselleevelynphotog

As I unwrapped my adorable son from his swaddle at 2:30AM, in the knowledge that after he finished his bottle he would be snuggled back up and put back to bed for hours, I cannot describe the level of jealousy I felt... #parenting #lackofsleep #tgif #saturdaysareforsleeping

She really loves music therapy with Mommy. I tried to get some in before Daddy came home because once he walks through the door, Mommy no longer exists. She's the biggest Daddy's girl ❤. . #love #downsyndrome #t21 #downsyndromeawareness #t21rocksss #trisomy21 #mystory #igtoddler #ds #penelopestrong #morealikethandifferent #theluckyfew #lifewithdownsyndrome #dsastx #DSDN #downrightperfect #nothingdownaboutit #advocate #specialneedsfamily #musictherapy #music #letsplay #lifeisgood #videooftheday

“It wasn’t until Jacob was 30 hours old that we found out he was rocking an extra chromosome, not only this but we found out he also has 3 defects with his heart and has a rare disease called Hirschsprung disease, which means no poonami’s for this little man... well not till after his surgery. He spent the first 5 weeks of his life in NICU. He brings us so much joy and we wouldn’t have him any other way. He is the bravest boy I know! His smile melts everyone’s hearts!” 💙💛✨ @taniabell88 #enableawareness #downsyndromeawareness #theluckyfew

I’m not sure how to even begin this post. There’s a “comedian” Tom Segura and he has a @netflix special where he talks you substituting the word retarded by saying “your idea has an extra 21st chromosome”. Which honestly, I don’t think is funny, even if I didn’t have Flick. I don’t like the word retarded but I got really angry when he targeted people with Down syndrome being retarded. So what he did do when I said something? He copied it and posted on his IG saying “that’s retarded”. Which is even worse right? It gets worse, I was harassed by several of his followers where I was told I was retarded as well as my daughter. That I should kill myself and take a joke. So me sticking up for my daughter and people like her, I was the bad guy to these people. In the beginning I cried because I’m just a mom and I want people to treat my daughter with respect. If we keep saying things like this, she is “different”. I just realized how many people think she’s “retarded”. It broke my heart, but now I’m back. I was scared at first to post this, hoping people wouldn’t continue to harass me, but isn’t that what Tom did by posting that? He set me up for harassment and bullying. Shame on him. So if you have a minute, if you could rate his Netflix specials with a thumbs down, I would greatly appreciate it, as would everyone with Down syndrome and everyone who loves someone with Down syndrome or you know...just generally kind people. #advocate #riseup

Birthday Countdown: T W O M O N T H S Easton’s second month of life was a good one. We got to take him to church. He was finally able to meet my younger nieces and nephews (people under the age of 18 weren’t allowed in the NICU). We celebrated our first World Down syndrome day with my amazing Barrett family. He had his lip and tongue ties corrected. But, the best thing of all was going to what would be our very LAST cardiologist appointment. Going in to the appointment, I had no idea what lay ahead. The last time we looked he still had that “pretty sizeable” hole in his heart (VSD). We were told he could need open heart surgery. After doing his echo- the doctor came in to tell us that there was no longer any hole to be found. His heart was completely healed, and he didn’t want to see us back there ever again!! BEST. NEWS. EVER. A huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I remember running to the car with Easton to cry tears of joy, and call everyone I knew to tell them that my prayers had been answered. Month two was definitely one to be remembered. 💛 #powerofprayer . . . . . . . . . . . #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndromelove #mamasboy #boymom #babyboy #lifeisbetterwithyou #momentslikethese #letthembelittle #babiesofinstagram #babiesofig #photooftheday #theluckyfew #morealikethandifferent #nothingdownaboutit #trisomy21 #shouttheirworth #2monthsold #t21 #dsdn #homiewithanextrachromie #clickinmoms #momswithcameras #throwbackthursday #tbt #tbthursday #chd #chdawareness #lovecarters

It's no wonder they always ask what the heck is wrong! Ryder wokeup with a temp of 102.7. Went to the Dr after a bath and was at 98.1 smh. I explained the high fevers and she felt we are dealing with a different virus because the symptoms are 10 fold of how he was 42 hours before when she saw him. We swabbed for the Flu and RSV. Both came back negative however they aren't always accurate. So we are treating for the flu because she believes that's what it is and wants to be safe. We are back at 103 tonight. Hoping this will get better in the next few days.

She was awake for a little bit (signing “milk” like she’s been in the dessert for 40 years). She was finally allowed some pedialyte and formula, which she guzzled down each time. Her virus panel came back positive for RSV. I don’t know if urgent care didn’t check for that or what happened when I brought her to the er on Sunday... but she’s here now where she needs to be. She’s fighting the flu and RSV. She had a echocardiogram to check up on her and the cardiologist said her heart function was “great”. Her pressure is a little elevated in her right heart but that’s to be expected and isn’t that bad considering. Warrior Princess is fighting very hard and im doing all I can to be there for her. I’m actually eating (hospital) dinner tonight. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I really appreciate it. #warriorprincess #heartmom

We literally had to drag Millie out of school tonight as she was crying that she wanted to sleep over. As embarrassed as this was I really love how much she loves it there. #familyfunnight #morealikethandifferent

So this @seguratom guy thinks it’s #comedy to make fun of #downsyndrome by saying someone or something “has an extra 21st chromosome” to imply dumbness or uselessness. I personally think saying they’re #tomsegura would be a more fitting alternative 🤷🏻‍♂️ This “man” (term used loosely) has obviously never experienced the awesomeness of our #homieswithextrachromies , otherwise he would never be so malicious. I know I’m gonna get a shitload of smartassed, uneducated comments for this post 🤣 BRING IT! #upsyndrome #downrightperfect #nothingdownaboutit #extraordinary #trisomy21 #mykidhasmorechromosomesthanyours #morealikethandifferent @netflix #takeitdown

Hi! It’s me, Hopey. I went shopping with my mom and sisters a couple of days ago. We left my little brother at home and called it a girls day out. I was so excited that I flapped my arms and giggled really loud lots of times. I couldn’t help it. I just felt so happy. I’m always happy, but when I get to go out with my big sisters, I’m even happier than usual. And because I don’t have words to speak, I demonstrate my feelings with actions. I saw you staring at me. My sisters did too. I heard them talking about how angry it made them feel when people stare at me. So I covered my face with my hands. But my sisters pulled my hands away from my face, gave me hugs, and told me how perfect and beautiful I am. They never lie to me, so I believed them. Next time, if you see me out, instead of staring at me ... just smile and say ‘hi’. . . . . . #chooselove #acceptance #downsyndrome #downsyndromerocks #nonverbal #loveconquersall #morealikethandifferent

I say it every month but... 8 months already?! Exactly one year ago was the first time we learned that maybe the pregnancy wasn’t going as well as we thought. My cervix wasn’t as long as they would like it to be, my doctor said.. and I should probably “take it easy at home” and that we would “wait and see” what happened over the course of the week. . Well many of you that follow me already know the ending to that story.. an emergency cerclage placed the following week and 119 days of bedrest. Exactly a year later and I’m looking at these beautiful faces on their 8 month birthday and I’m overflowing with gratitude. #soworthit #iwoulddoitallagain . . . #twinlife #twinmom #twingirls #chromosomecutie #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #upwithdown #upsyndrome #LifeIsBetterWithYou #downrightperfect #morealikethandifferent #downsyndrome #trisomy21 #t21 #incompetentcervix #bedrest #ivfsuccess #webeatinfertility

Happy 2 year gotcha day Lucy Liu and Henry Pierce! You have taught me more about life in two years than my whole life combined. I’ve learned that things are always more complicated than they seem. That thinking you are a good person isn’t enough. That every child deserves to have a family. And that the more I think I have life figured out, the more I realize how little I truly know. Your love, your joy, your passion has blessed us far greater than we could ever bless you. Happy two years into a lifetime of your forever family 👧🏻❤️👦🏻 📷 @yvettemichelleportraits #chinaadoption #adoption #adoptionrocks #theluckyfew #i❤️lucy #downsyndrome #gotchaday #foreverfamily #visionimpaired #bettertogether #morealikethandifferent #dogoodthings #oneless #lifeisbetterwithyou

She’s finally sleeping. When we got here her temp was 105 and oxygen at 84 in room air. Now she no longer has a temperature and after reviewing her X-ray, no longer has pneumonia and that what’s happening to her is probably viral. They’ve tested for a bunch of other stuff and we’re waiting for the results. She’s on fluids and antibiotics and will get tamaflu later today orally. This is the quietest she’s slept for a while.

Happy Hannah! 😍 Some people have the misconception that people with Down Syndrome are always happy though, and that’s simply not true. People with Down Syndrome experience the same emotions everyone else does; they’re human after all. Hannah is a very, very happy baby, but just 2 hours prior to this photo, she had a total meltdown in the car. She’s not ALWAYS happy. However, I think people with Down Syndrome have a natural ability to love everyone unconditionally, and to find joy in things others can’t. They experience different emotions, but they choose to be happy and enjoy life! 💙💛 #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #myheart #dsdn #trisomy21 #t21 #downsyndrome #motherhood #instababy #321 #ds #dsawareness #upsyndrome #changingthefaceofbeauty #downrightperfect #lifeisbetterwithyou #daughter #love #homeschool #beauty #morealikethandifferent #babygirl #savedownsyndrome #wovenwith47 #mommylife #nothingdownaboutdownsyndrome #nothingdownabouther #chd #tof #avsd

Want to FaceTime with Jordan Grace??? Seems I’ve blinked! This precious girl will be 4 years old in exactly one month! Four years ago today I was so scared! Not only did I know she was going to be born with Down syndrome, I had to prepare myself for her to also have open heart surgery. Can you imagine as a mother handing over your child and not knowing if you will get them back? WORST.DAY.OF.MY.LIFE! Hands down! And so this month I ask you sweet friends for any donation, seriously $1, $5 $100 anything you can give to our beautiful @stollerykids for her birthday celebration. It would mean the world to me! The highest donation will receive our book “A Princess Wish” and a FaceTime call from our precious one to personally thank you! Link in profile! ❤️
