Words cannot express what these words that Alyse wrote mean to me ️. Photographing her and Flick were the absolute highlight my weekend.

昨日のまこさん

「出来たねリスト」作ってみました
1 雪がっせん
2 おふろ
3 雪がっせん
4チキン
5 はみがき ねる
触っちゃて、消えてるところいっぱいですが
項目は、まこさんと一緒に決めました🤗🤗🤗

できたら、シールを貼ります
完成度はイマイチかなと思ったんですが、
「できたらシール貼れるんだよ〜」
のひと言で、「よし‼️やってみよう‼️」
だって🤣🤣🤣いいぞいいぞ‼️

写真はお風呂上がりに2つ目のシールを貼って、大満足のまこさん

最初は楽しいこといっぱいがいいと思って、
お楽しみのチキンも準備しました〜🤣🤣

このチキン、家までアツアツのまま配達してくれます🤗🤗

いつか日本に完全帰国することになったら、このチキンの配達が無くなることを、心底悲しむだろうなぁ〜〜

「出来たねリスト」は、毎日なんでもリストに載せて、シールをいっぱい貼らせて、いっぱいシールが溜まったら、ご褒美が待ってる感じにしようかと思っています🤗🤗🤗

実はこの後、まこさん38度の熱

今朝は下がってましたけれども……
学校休みました

今朝のソウルは雪。もすうぐ止む予定です。

早く春になぁれ〜〜

Not where I hoped to be today...but I am so grateful for doctors and nurses that are on top of things and take Aviyah’s well-being seriously. We are in the hospital for at least a night as she has dropped weight quickly, is not taking in a lot of fluid, and is febrile. She is charming everyone and I’m grateful she looks so good. I am also grateful that these doctors are being so proactive so we don’t find ourselves in a spot where it’s much harder to come back from. So Aviyah and I will have some mother daughter time in the hospital tonight and hopefully she just gets even better ️ thank you for the prayers for my sweet girl and her warrior heart️ .

I responded to a message the other day from a mom who was freaking right out, just like I did when I received Pip's Down syndrome diagnosis. Ok momma...Breath. Cry. Scream. Do whatever you gotta do. You're allowed to feel afraid. You're allowed to feel overwhelmed. You're allowed to feel guilty and blame all sorts of things. But, if you are indeed lucky enough to be that 1/10 chance and you get to experience life closely with someone who has Down syndrome - I promise you, everything you're feeling today will fade & it will be hard to remember ever feeling this way. My Pip makes my life magic. Stressful. Exhausting. Challenging & all the other things. But her magic covers all that. You got this whatever it is! It's truly hard for me to put myself back in those first few days with Pip, when our world seemed so very shattered, because in just a few days I'm celebrating her in the loudest way possible. 
Seriously, I'm throwing a bloody CITY-WIDE-BIRTHDAY-PARTY for my little girl. There is NOTHING I can possibly celebrate more than her.

So, if y'all are free Saturday afternoon.
And ya like skating, Santa, dancing, Christmas Shopping, Facepainting, bidding on cool auction stuff & meeting the birthday girl herself, please come to the Bash.... Visit happysoulproject.com for tickets .

@whoami2u So beautifully said....and “magic” is the best word you could’ve used! Wish we lived closer so we could come out and celebrate with Pip! We’re sending her all the best wishes for an fantabulous party this weekend 🎉🎉🎉

We started the dreaded four month sleep regression during Thanksgiving week. Both of our kids had been great sleepers before this started. Greyson didn’t have a sleep regression— he sleeps like his Dad. You know how Dads sleep ? Quinn has slept through the night since before turning two months so I guess this is payback for the lack of sleepless nights we had in the beginning 🤦‍️. In Quinn’s defense, we moved her to her own room, stopped swaddling her and removed her from her Dock-a-tot all around the same time. She probably thinks she’s sleeping in outer space—poor girl. Seems like some nights are better than others, she even made it through a few nights last week but this week has been brutal. If anyone is wondering what I want for Christmas, it’s uninterrupted sleep, I wear a size 8 hours.

@cristinabarlera Have you more information about this specific tool??? In Italy we called it "ruotino" (little wheel), but all brands have a more complex attack system...

We've been quiet on here for the past few days. Had to take Hudson to the ER again during the night on Friday. Little buddy is okay now....but his continuous congestion has given him breathing difficulties. ⠀
⠀
It was our 2nd ER visit in 20 days for the same issue...so our ENT has agreed we need a much more aggressive treatment plan to help Hudson. Over the next few weeks, Hudson will meet with additional specialists and partake in studies to help us identify the best treatment options. Thankfully all of the congestion is in his throat and hasn't moved to his lungs - no pneumonia! Phew  ⠀
⠀
In the interim, you can find us in the bathroom sitting in the steam, taking elderberry supplements, sitting on the couch using a nebulizer, drinking lactose-free milk or diffusing essential oils. Hudson's pediatrician joked that I'm an organic respiratory therapist now. ⠀
⠀
Prayers are always welcomed for our little man! Thank you everyone for your love and support and checking in on us. #holdingmoonbeams

@brigidpritchard Oh no!!! Feel better soon little buddy!!!!! Sending love and prayers from Stl!

You’re not a burden, you haven’t ruined my or your families lives, you aren’t Down syndrome you have Down syndrome. And I’m so glad you do, you have opened my eyes and enlightened me in every way possible. Everyday I watch you reach milestones that doctors said I’d never see, and damn I wish I could shove it in their faces. You are my child, my son, my hero. I will forever protect you from harsh words and advocate for not only you but all people with Down syndrome. We’ve experienced some harsh words lately hence the absence of our page but we’re back and ready to kick haters in the ass!! -

@being_mum91 They were so cheeky 🙊 loved watching them ☺️

Not going to lie and say that being a mother to a child with additional needs is a walk in the park. Mostly, my anxiety centres around other people’s perceptions (which sucks). In terms of where Saaj is at - I’m good with his pace. I admire his slow pace in life and kind of just embracing whatever he fancies at any given time. But sometimes, that anxiety creeps up on me hard. 
If you watched my stories, you’d see I was really anxious this morning. Silently anxious till this morning. I was nervous about Saajan’s first nativity at nursery and how he’d be. It wasn’t that he was playing some grand character (he was a bloomin’ snowflake 🤣), it was more fear of the unknown. Fear of not knowing he’d react to a big crowd, the fear of if his quirky mannerism would draw weird looks, the fear of what people would think about the little boy with Down syndrome, the fear of him having a meltdown seeing us - Arj did. Every. Single. Time (bar his last one!). Ive become so comfortable with Saajan and who he is around his nursery staff, and for the most part in that setting, they’re all I deal with. So today I felt an overwhelming sense of fear at other people’s reactions to however he’d behave as it was the first time since he’s started nursery I’ve had to face that situation. 
Honestly, I couldn’t be prouder. He DIDN’T cry, he wasn’t phased and when he saw us, he smiled. None of the fears Ive had over the last few days were confirmed today. In fact, he smashed every single one of them. I’m not sure anyone even noticed he was a little different - I think I need to remember that actually, most parents are solely focused on their own kid to give a hoot about what quirkiness my ones up to 🤣 ... anyway, I literally had tears in my eyes because as he was up there with Toni, it was once again the realisation that actually, I shouldn’t underestimate him. He never fails to amaze me and he possesses this aura that oozes love -  Sometimes I need to practice what I preach - Saajan ISN’T defined by his diagnosis. He’s just Saajan, our Saajan ️

Not going to lie and say that being a mother to a child with additional needs is a walk in the park. Mostly, my anxiety centres around other people’s perceptions (which sucks). In terms of where Saaj is at - I’m good with his pace. I admire his slow

@kerrlee1 Love her!!!

I was feeling stumped on gift ideas for Lucas. Blakely was 10 months old for her first Christmas so she interacted and played more. I'm so excited for these toys that will help with his development. We are really working on neck muscles right now and head control so we got him this fun turtle mirror with toys to help him look up during tummy time. Some wrist and sock rattles to help him find his hands and feet and the wubbanub will hopefully keep his paci in. He loves to fall asleep with one but has a hard time keeping them in his mouth due to low muscle tone and his itty bitty mouth.

Caption the second photo 🤣. George aka Mr Seductive 🤪. So what can we say about George. Yesterday we had a speech and language appointment. They are now trying a new tactic with feeding George. Just to not feed him and to only allow messy play and let him do everything. They could see we try to feed him in the bath and random ways and the effort is there but George is just too stubborn. So we will see how it goes over the coming months. So today’s milestone is........ It seem to be a common theme on his account recently. But today was good. He has been recently going to the toilet to have a pee. But today a little poo came out as well. George’s dad randomly took a photo. But funny enough we are not going to post it 🤣 but it was a great milestone and he done us proud #proudparents #milestone #bathtime #seductive #ladiesman #poser #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndromerocks #downsyndromelove #downsyndrom #downsyndroom #downsendromu #sindromededown #sindromedoamor #cromossomo21 #cromossomodoamor #trisomy21 #trisomie21 #trisomia21 #t21 #upsyndrome #nothingdownaboutit #morealikethandifferent #specialneeds #cutiepie #cutenessoverload #gorgeousgeorge #mooiboy #downsnobounds

@joohelena @bomancissi Å Hjalle blev så glad att se Love☺️

This is William. The jacket William is rocking in this picture was mine and is signed by all important people and rock bands that have Inspired me in some form or another. I never seemed to have a working camera ever so I just had everyone sign the jacket and the legacy was started. William grew up listening to all those bands and the one that stuck with him the most was @shinedown . Being ten years older than him, I like to think he gets his music taste from his big sister. ️ William inspires me more than anyone and to know what an effect this band has had on him means so much. I would love the opportunity for him to meet the band he spends so much time listening to and singing along with. He doesn’t look at people as less than or better, famous or ‘normal’. William gives love to everyone, no matter who they are. He is always kind, always smiling and always willing to give a hug. He is the message #shinedown gives over and over, in human form. This is what Inspires me, the love of music and bringing people together, being kind, sharing a passion through the human connection. #attnattnworldtour #getup #miracle #downsyndromeawareness #musiclover #howdidyoulove

This is me, getting completely real.️ No makeup other than lip balm (and  what’s left of yesterday’s makeup which I slept in), my hair isn’t brushed, and if it looks like I was crying, it’s because I was. I managed to make it through my glucose test this morning, but it’s torturous when you’re 27 weeks pregnant and still dealing with morning sickness every single day. I came out and dry heaved until tears were streaming down my cheeks, then treated myself to Starbucks, which may or may not stay down. I wish I could say I was drinking tea or coffee, but they make me sick every time, so hot chocolate it is! My husband and I fought last night, because truthfully, raising a child who has special needs isn’t always easy, and we have differing opinions on some things. Then again, raising a teenager is hard, raising a tween girl is hard, and, well, Lily is the easy one right now. Juggling 4 kids and all their activities, a husband, a dog and 4 rabbits, a home, and a blog is tough, especially while pregnant and dealing with morning sickness that lasts the entire pregnancy. When you have a big family, life doesn’t slow down to accommodate morning sickness/hyperemesis, so I have to find ways to cope. The plus is that I’m so busy that this pregnancy is flying by! Although I’m excited to meet this baby and know I will adore him, I can’t help but worry and wonder about the timing. How will this baby affect Liam? Why did it happen 5 years after our last child was born, after we decided we were done and gave almost everything away? I’m already a hot mess, and it’s a miracle if I drop off 3 of my 4 kids on time to school each morning, so how will I juggle FIVE? After 14 years of NEVER being away from a kid/kids, I finally got 2.5 hours to myself 5 days a week when Liam started Kindergarten...and now we’re starting over! BUT here’s the thing...I smile because no matter how tough it is, life could be much worse. Life isn’t supposed to be easy, and this is REAL...not a magical, perfect picture that fills our IG feed and makes us feel like we are failing. My life isn’t perfect, but that’s reality. I am completely grateful for my perfectly imperfect life, and my huge family!

@lexieloolilyliamdylantoo @april_michele73 It helps to know we’re not alone, doesn’t it? ❤

@erinmarie1116 You are fabulous momma 💕 thanks for being real always! You are greatly loved for that 😘

Tough skin is hard to grow, I’ve toughened up a lot since having my girls, having to feed them in public I had to ignore people’s stares and comments so I thought I’d have it covered for when someone eventually remarked about Willow. Turns out I don’t. It happened today, some ignorant man made a remark about her to another guy and smirked at my baby. It makes my blood boil looking back but I froze. I was so shocked it happened in my daughter’s school after her nativity. Who expects that? I let her down, I let myself down for not standing up for her and making that man feel as small as he behaved. There will be other times when situations like this arise and I need to be prepared to either educate or embarrass them for making hateful remarks about a beautiful, innocent little baby. For now I’m just going to try and focus on all the people who love Willow, because there’s a lot of them 
That close minded man will never know the love and magic that Willow has brought to so many. I’m going to make sure she grows up knowing how amazing she is and that peoples misguided opinion doesn’t define her at all

@down_syndrome_naturally Yeah, he misses out on the magic of love, for sure! 🌈 His loss. 💖

@rosie_gower_ I’m so sorry people like that exist. That is one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever heard. Willow is beautiful, and she’s very lucky to have you as her mama- you haven’t let anyone down by being lost for words and unsure of what to do in that situation. It’s a situation that should never happen. Lots of love ❤️❤️❤️
