Guess who is signing ‘more’ all of a sudden?! 👉🏼BAYLOR👈🏼 is!👊🏼 We’ve been working pretty hard on simple signs and it’s paying off little by little. This boy amazes me everyday. I love him so much!♥️ {{Don’t mine my annoying mom voice!😜}}

Down Syndrome FACT #5: Babies with DS have low muscle tone, known as hypotonia. Babies with hypotonia may seem floppy or loose. Hypotonia is the reason it takes DS kids longer to talk, walk, eat, crawl, etc. than a typical child. To help improve their muscle tone these kids can have many types of different therapies. Right now we are only doing Occupational Therapy with Baylor, he pretty much hates it lol, but will start doing Physical Therapy once he starts showing more interest in crawling. #theluckyfew #littlestwarrior #lowmuscletone #hypotonia #therapy #occupationaltherapy #physicaltherapy #baylorsbuddies #betterwithbaylor

My bubba hasn’t been feeling the greatest the last few days.😞 I LOVE all the extra cuddles, but I miss my happy healthy baby. Kids with DS have weak immune systems so I’m pretty nervous about RSV season. How do you mamas keep your baby from getting sick all winter? Help a mama out and send your tips + tricks my way!🙏🏼

Oh how I miss the feeling of baby kicks inside my tummy!💕 || FACT #20: Did you know that DS is not the result of anything the mother did during pregnancy, it’s a chromosomal abnormality present at conception. #dsfacts #downsyndrome #awareness #pregnancy #babykicks #baylorsbuddies #betterwithbaylor
Aunt Madi bought Baylor the CUTEST jammies for his birthday. We couldn’t wait to put them on him!🙈

I always knew being an aunt would be fun, but I never imagined it would be this fun. Baylor makes everything so happy and I can’t imagine my life without him. Him and his extra chromosome were just what my life was missing and I’ve never been more grateful. ❤️❤️ #downsyndromeawarenessmonth #betterwithBaylor

FACT #7: There are 3 ways in which Down Syndrome can happen, depending on how the cells divide. 1️⃣ Trisomy 21- all cells have an extra copy of the 21st chromosome. This is the most common form of DS. 2️⃣ Translocation- there are 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, but 1 is attached to a different chromosome instead of being separate. This type is inherited and rare; it accounts for only 4-5% of DS cases. 3️⃣ Mosaicism- there is an extra chromosome 21, but it’s not present in all cells. This occurs in 1% of DS cases. || Let me know if you have any specific questions!💙 #downsyndromeawareness #downrightperfect #typesofdownsyndrome #trisomy21 #translocation #mosaic #extrachromosome #baylorsbuddies #betterwithbaylor

It seems like our life has been full of doctor appointments lately, maybe just because we haven’t had one for awhile lol. Baylor had his one year well check yesterday. He did great when they poked his finger for a blood test, he didn’t even flinch and watched the whole time. He definitely didn’t like the shots though.😢 He weighs 14.4 pounds!😯 Which probably doesn’t seem like much to you guys at all... 🙄, but when he started at 2.5 it makes it seem like a lot more! He’s getting so big.😭 He also had a follow up audiology appointment last week. ((Swipe)) He sat so still while they ran the first couple tests. Then he decided he was done. The results weren’t exactly what we were hoping for. We have to follow up with an ENT next week. Please pray that things go smoothly and that we can figure out what the problem is.💙 Other than that, Baylor is doing great! He is getting stronger each day and I’m so grateful for the joy he brings into my life!😄

I love the feeling this holiday season brings. It’s so magical, like you can almost feel Christmas. This year I am going to try to focus more on the #reasonfortheseason, the #truemeaningofchristmas.
Each year, my church invites each of us to #LightTheWorld in 25 ways, over 25 days. We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ by serving others. As we follow His teachings, we let His light shine- in our lives and in the lives of others. This Christmas season I want to invite each of you to participate as well by serving those in need.
🎄
If you text “Light” to 415-944-5765 it will send you a challenge, along with a video, everyday until Christmas.
🎄
The link in my bio will take you to Lds.org to learn more about the #LightTheWorld project.

Happy Thanksgiving friends!🦃 Today (and everyday) I’m thankful for my knowledge of the gospel and Christ’s love for me. I’m thankful for guardian angels sent to guide and protect little Baylor and me. I am thankful for family and their unwavering support in troubling times. I am thankful to be this little turkeys mama. I am thankful for all of you and your kind encouraging words when needed. I am thankful for friendship. I could go on and on, but these are a few. What are you guys thankful for?

Life has been crazy the last few months. I’m going down a road I always told myself I never would and to be honest it really sucks. Life has a way of keeping you on your toes. Everything I do is for this little guy. He makes this time in my life worth it. I see him and I remember why I’m doing what I’m doing. As hard as it is sometimes, I will never stop fighting for him. He is my world. He is the reason for my existence. He is who I am. I see this cute face, give him a big squeeze and all my worries seem to disappear for a minute. I feel as if everything will be okay. I am so grateful for Baylor and the spirit he brings into my life. He fills my life with so much joy.

Today is INFANT PREMATURITY AWARENESS DAY.  Did you know that 15 million babies are born premature each year (in the US)? That’s about 1 out of every 10. There are MANY reasons babies come early and in other cases parents will never know the reason.
.
Baylor was born at 31 weeks. He weighed 2 lbs 8 ounces and was 16 inches long. He was life flighted to Primary Childrens Hospital where he stayed 83 days and underwent multiple tests and 2 surgeries. We sat by his bedside for almost 3 months anxiously waiting to hear the words “You’re being discharged”. Those months were HARD! They were such a roller coaster. Some days seemed much longer than others and felt almost unbearable. I often felt discouraged and like I wasn’t even a mom. I wasn’t able to do all the things new moms were supposed to do and I still feel like I missed out on a big part of motherhood. BUT I am SO grateful for all the medical staff that cared for Baylor while he was there. They were there for him when I couldn’t be. They did what I was unable to do, I owe them my life. Baylor would not be here today if it weren’t for all these medical advances. Life (for many) would be so different without these things. I am so grateful for my miracle boy.
.
Today also marks ONE YEAR since I went into labor the week before Baylor was born. I can’t believe it’s been a year, a crazy year for sure. I’m glad we were able to get the help we needed that allowed Baylor to stay put for one more week. I don’t know what I would do without my little man and all his goofiness. I love you Baylor!💙

To all the cheerleaders (involved in this conversation, you know who you are) that were on the bus to Boise this weekend,
•
After hearing about a conversation that was had between some of you, my heart hurts. We are all faced with choices we have to make every day, some much harder than others. Before I go any further I want to be clear that I’m not judging this person for their choice.
BUT
Knowing that some of you laughed after hearing that a baby was aborted because the test came back positive for Down Syndrome, makes me sad and honestly a little angry. Angry because this person acted not understanding what they were doing. Not knowing that their child, whether he/she had Down Syndrome or not, would be the BEST thing that ever happened to them. A person with Down Syndrome is just that, a person. A person who happens to have one extra chromosome.
•
I just hope that every child on that bus thinks long and hard if they are ever faced with this decision. There are SO many misconceptions about Down Syndrome. Educate yourself. Talk to someone who has a child with Down Syndrome. Ask them what it’s like to care for that child. Talk to someone with Down Syndrome. Ask them if they enjoy life. After doing all this then make your decision. I just hope you take time to actually know what you’re doing.
•
Every choice comes with a consequence. I would MUCH rather “live with” a child that’s differently-abled than live with the guilt of abortion.
•
I wish I could sit you all down and tell you this: Baylor is the BEST thing that has EVER happened to me. End of story. His extra chromosome doesn’t change that, it just makes it better. He may be hard sometimes, every child is, but I love him regardless. Whether he is blind, autistic, born with DS, or cerebral palsy (etc.), he is MY child. And NOTHING will change that. #downsyndrome #differntlyabled #lifeisbetterwithyou #betterwithbaylor

As October (Down Syndrome Awarness Month) comes to an end I am excited to share this project that has been in the works. What better way to spread awareness, love and kindness than through Christ and His love for all His children.
:
I helped put together a project with a bunch of families with kids who have Down Syndrome. We all came together to get pictures of our kids with a model who resembles Jesus Christ. It was incredible to be a part of this and to meet so many new people on the same journey I am.
:
I know that these special people are closer to God than most of us ever will be in this life. I believe that they were sent here to teach the rest of us to love, accept, not judge others, etc.
:
Our hope is that this project will open the worlds eyes to how beautiful and wonderful these kids really are. To Christ these kids are perfect, just like all other kids. Unfortunately, not everyone sees them that way. I hope that after this, we can all try harder to see everyone the way Christ sees them.

My little pumpkin is 11 MONTHS old today.♥️😭 Since we’ve been staying with my parents Baylor has become “one of the big boys”. He wants to be just like his uncles and wants to do everything they do. He looks up to and loves them both so much.
Baylor is sitting so well now! He rolls around like crazy to get where he wants to go. He also thinks learning to walk is much too hard.😂 But baby steps are THE cutest!😍
He watches everyone’s mouth like a hawk when he thinks that you could be eating something. He will grab your mouth and try to get some for himself if you don’t share.😂
He is no longer sleeping at night.🙄 So if you have good ways to sleep train, send them my way!🙏🏼
I love watching him learn or try new things. He is getting to be such a big boy.

Cheesin’ it!😀😍😜 || FACT#22: Myth- adults with Down Syndrome are the same as children with DS. Truth- adults with DS are not children, and should not be considered children. They enjoy activities and companionship with other adults, and have similar needs and feelings as their typical friends. #downsyndromeawareness #rocktober #adults #children #facts #baylorsbuddies #betterwithbaylor
FACT #17: About 45% of people with Down Syndrome have a Single Transverse Palmer Crease or Simian Crease on their hands. These creases develop while the baby is growing in the womb, most often by the 12th week of gestation. Males are twice as likely as females to have this crease. Baylor has one on his left hand, and I think it’s the cutest thing ever!😍 It just makes him a little more unique!

Thank you for being my constant reminder of what life is really about, for reminding me to enjoy the little things. Thanks for showing me that no matter what trial I may be going through, God will guide me through. •••••

Taking advantage of every warmer day we have, they will come to an end sooner than we think 😐. || DS FACT #13: People with Down Syndrome can’t be “more downs” than another. Just like everyone else, each person with DS has their own strengths, weaknesses, talents and abilities. That extra chromosome will affect each individual differently. #dsdn #downsyndromeawareness #downrightperfect #morealikethandifferent #baylorsbuddies #betterwithbaylor
So blessed to have this little fluff ball as my adventure buddy for life!😍💙 •

I always knew being an aunt would be fun, but I never imagined it would be this fun. Baylor makes everything so happy and I can’t imagine my life without him. Him and his extra chromosome were just what my life was missing and I’ve never been more grateful. ❤️❤️ #downsyndromeawarenessmonth #betterwithBaylor

You may not know this, but October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month.💙💛 I’m still new to all things Down Syndrome, but in order to help spread awareness I’ve decided to share one fact a day on DS. Please feel free to ask questions or send me a message if you have anything specific you want to know. My goal is to help people better understand what Down Syndrome is, and to help us all better understand how to love someone who’s a little different than ourselves. 
Fact #1: Down Syndrome is the most commonly occurring chromosomal condition. One in every 691 babies born in the US is born with DS. That’s about 6,000 each year. That’s a lot of cute kiddos with extra chromosomes running around!😍 •

Did you know that September is NICU awareness month? Being a NICU parent is HARD! Not being able to hold your baby for days, sometimes months, is agonizing. AND once you're able to your time is limited. I remember the first time I was able to do Kangaroo Care (skin to skin) with Baylor. After what seemed like 5 minutes (it was probably closer to 20) the nurse came and said it was time to put him back in his incubator. I cried as she took him out of my arms and laid him down in his bed. Watching all that your new baby has to go through is so painful. You would do anything to make it easier for them. But these babies are much stronger than us, they are fighters. I've decided to share my NICU survival tips again, the link is in my bio! Please tag/share with anyone who has gone through or is going through the NICU right now.♥️

My huckleberry picking buddy.💙 He didn't like that mom wasn't paying as much attention to him, but he loved the berries and would look up at me more for more!😋😍 How could I possibly resist a face as cute as his? AND we had a beautiful sunset tonight!❤️ Only downside to tonight, we managed to stain the wildbird sling!😭

Baylor's first camping trip was a success! We stayed on the beach of Bear Lake right next to the water. Four days full of playing in the lake, sun, sand and lots of family time. We went boating, jet skiing, kayaking, etc. and had so much fun! We went to Minnetonka Cave one day, I hadn't been in years so it was fun to go again. Baylor was seriously an angel baby the whole week! Even with being poured/hailed on the last night there. I'm sure we will have many more camping trips knowing how good he was for this one! It was fun to get away for a few days and spend time with family too. Now back to real life. #baylorsbuddies #campingtrip #familytime #bearlake #blessed #backtoreality #farmlife #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #cameramama #betterwithbaylor
