Every time I turn around, we're celebrating another month with our sweetheart! SEVENTEEN months feels like both a lifetime & a millisecond in the world of motherhood.
This appointment can be very overwhelming because it's many specialists visits rolled into one big one. It is a long day with a lot of information. Because of this, I have created a checklist to help guide you through your next appointment to the DS Clinic - See inside for a free printable!
SIXTEEN months have came & went. SIXTEEN months of chaos & confusion. SIXTEEN months of love and snuggles.
A lot of these gift ideas help with fine motor skills like the pincher grasp or intentional release, imaginative play, recognizing shapes and colors, and practicing gross motor skills with bigger movements. Or they're just plain adorable & I couldn't pass them up!
When making meals for Kara, I try to incorporate different textures, colors and tastes. Adding these things helps to wake up the sensory system and encourages Kara to stuff her face like she does so very often 🙂 I also like to make enough so I'm able to sit down and enjoy it with her. Mealtime isn't just for eating, it also builds social skills!
This entire month I was wondering where my sweet baby went. Where were the smiles? The giggles? Not even a smirk? Nothing? Okay...
I am not one of those girls who dreamed of being a mom. The thought terrified me, confused me, and frankly, it grossed me out a bit. I knew that I would have kids someday. I knew that I would want them someday (probably). I figured that I would deal with it when the time came.
