Greyson has DS and was born nearly 6 weeks premature. We were told that he would have low muscle tone and would develop much slower than his typical peers. Doctors simply don't understand our little ones will to fight. At almost 5 months Greyson has worked hard to meet all the of the same milestones as his typical peers. There is literally no stopping this kid. While I do believe in the importance of a doctors expertise, sometimes the human spirit and tenacity defies what's in the science journals. There are absolutely no limits for this guy.
Jeremy's life ambition is to be on @bbcstrictly... Today we got one step closer. Jeremy dances with #blueappletheatre and they asked him to help promote the group at a Mencap today. Here is a small taster of his dance, a tribute to his love of @gleeonfox. There is something wonderful about watching someone get a taste of their dreams. 🔜🕺✨🤞
spent the morning cleaning out my phone and I came across this gem. I cannot believe I didn't share this picture when I took it! I also can't believe we haven't taken Marley back to Chuck E. Cheese's because she had the time of her life that night riding the train, driving the car, and of course eating pizza. 🍕🍕🍕
Mikey is doing great this morning! He ate half an egg and half a container of pureed mangos for breakfast and is playing like a champ! We really appreciate all the love and prayers! We had so much support and we felt all of those healing prayers for our sweet boy. Have a blessed Friday y'all. #Lifeisbetterwithyou#theluckyfew#nothingdownaboutit#t21rocksss
We've loved being part of @alilsomethingextra321!! Quality of shirts are great and the designs are unique! Always a conversation starter when we wear them out! 💙💛 we would LOVE to be part of the team again! #alilsomethingextrarepsearch
Last night I awoke from a deep sleep with a start. Alfie (surprisingly as it's usually Oscar) was shouting "Mummy" at the top of his voice. I went in to find that he'd lost his (new) alligator figure that he'd taken to bed with him and he'd wanted me to find it 🙄
Having found him somewhere under the duvet, Alfie very quickly went back to sleep... but probably because he'd frightened me half to death shouting my name so loudly in the middle of the night, having got back into bed, and now wide awake, I made the mistake of checking my phone.
It was 4am. I saw that I had a Watsap messsge so checked that. Still wide awake, I decided to jump on here and take a look at my notifications. And there, amongst a whole heap of other comments, on a post I'd written last night, asking for people's advice about how to help a little boy called James who happens to have Down Syndrome, I see this comment "Ah sure just kill him" - Pat Ryan
I usually delete, block and report comments like this (which I have actually done before taking this screenshot) but I've decided to share this one with you all. Sometimes I forget how many awful awful people there are out there. Thankfully in my day to day life I don't have to be around people like this man, but if I had 5 minutes in a room with him, here's what I'd say... Pat,
Perhaps i'm adding fuel to the fire and satisfying the attention you seem to desire but I can’t let this pass without a mention. It’s my belief that there are always going to be people out there that say bad stuff. Stuff to cause controversy and to spark a reaction. The internet is plastered with it. I usually don’t comment, choosing not too because it seems that every few months or so, there’s someone saying something derogatory about DS, just as you have and why waste my time and energy.
This becomes harder however, when people like you say such hurtful things. Is it because you genuinely believe that people born with Down Syndrome don't deserve to live? Or does it come down to one thing here? Is it down to your lack of education on the subject?

She's 14 month old today. I already feel bad for her future siblings because there is no way I can keep up with this picture taking and milestone notes😬. Emmy is 16 pounds and most of that must be in her belly because she has the tiniest little legs I've ever seen. She has mastered the bear crawl and follows me all over the house now. We have to really keep an eye on her because she's also pulling up on everything including walls but she doesn't usually know how to get down safely. The coolest new trick is saying, " Hi Dada!" She has said it a handful of times and the first time she did it 3x in a row 👏. Her eating has improved as well. She will now swallow some chunky food which has been such a challenge in the past. She is so fun and sweet and I am enjoying the ride with my little tour guide!! #theluckyfew#upsyndrome#dsdn
If you are in Southern California and want to kick of Down syndrome awareness month with a play date send me a DM for information. October 1st in Orange County!!
There are moments that still strike me every now and again, that this little human is mine. I grew him inside of me!! Half me, and half you @colroberts
My pregnancy was hard, and I can remember going into the doctor and updating him on my weight loss and telling him all I could think about was a little baby inside me with one arm and worrying that he wasn't getting the nutrients he needed. He reassured me that he was.
Little did I know he wasn't missing anything, in fact, he had a little extra. An extra chromosome that is.
The last 10 months have flown by and parts have been a blur as they have played out in a way I could never have imagined.
I'm brought to tears often knowing I got lucky enough to be chosen as this little man's mom, and what a blessing it has been to me. I know I'm a broken record when I say all this but it's the truth. I'm forever changed. ❤️ #downsyndrome#upsyndrome#incaseyouredown#trisomy21#t21#vscobaby#vscodaily#vsco#vscomama#thatsdarling#livethelittlethings#makeportraits#changingthefaceofbeauty#nothingdownaboutit
