Squash In Between My Fingers

I have a vivid memory of when I was a kid and my mom was driving me and my little brother somewhere. She told us "You can be anything you want to be when you grow up." I looked out the window into the trees, "I want to be a deer." My brother followed suit and said, "I want to be a dragon." I wish I could go back and see my mom's face at that moment 🙂

Registering for our Baby with Down Syndrome – Part III: BATH TIME

I LOVED preparing for our baby girl. I loved cleaning and organizing her nursery. I loved seeing it all come together. I would sit in her rocker, hands on my baby bump, and picture holding my beautiful girl instead. I didn't, however, love putting together our baby registry. I wish I would have had someone holding my hand, telling me exactly what Kara was going to like and what I should not waste time or money on.

Kara has some really great stuff that have become major must-haves for our little family. After many inquiries, I’ve decided to share our most favorite items, divided into categories. (You will find the full list at the end of this post.) Stay tuned in the coming weeks and I’ll share much more about each item’s details, a few quick thoughts, and how we use it in relation to Kara’s Down syndrome.

My {8} Month Old with Down Syndrome

As a new mom, I am dreading the day that she pushes me away because she wants to do it herself. Postponing this process isn't the worst thing in the world 😉 She is my baby just a little bit longer and I consider myself lucky that she has the power to slow the clock (take that, Father Time). It is unbelievable what that one extra chromosome is capable of.

Entering the world of Down syndrome has been extremely humbling. It's like leaving your house for the first time. You think you have it all figured out. You know every nook and cranny of that house, but just one step out the door changes your perspective. By the time you make it to the mailbox, you realize that much has been happening right under your nose. You just never thought to peek out of the windows before.
