What you need to hear if you are pregnant or give birth to a beautiful child who has Down Syndrome: "You will be proud. Your child will dazzle you. One day, when you least expect it, you will feel your heart stretch. You will discover within yourself a kind of love you never knew you had." Congratulations! You are in for an incredible love and journey that is only given to #theluckyfew 💋💋 💛💛👧🏻💙💙

Vor einiger Zeit hatten wir ein #Shooting bei der wunderbaren Snezhana von Büdingen. Hier das erste von vier Fotos.
Ich bin total begeistert von den Fotos, sie sind so schön geworden! ❤️
Danke, liebe Snezhana.
Auch alle anderen Fotos aus der Serie, die ich bisher gesehen habe sind ganz wundervoll und ich bin gespannt auf das Endergebnis!

Ein letztes Bild von der #kindundjugend.
Hier testen wir gerade am Stand von #hoppediz die nagelneue Tragehilfe #nabaca. Sie funktioniert nach dem Baukastensystem. Man kauft ein Paket aus Hüftgurt (auch in einer Slim Variante erhältlich), Schultergurten (in zwei Breiten Erhältlich und drei verschieden großen Rückenteilen. So lässt die Trage sich optimal anpassen von Geburt bis zum Ende der Tragzeit.
Florentine (Kleidergröße 74) hat das mittlere Rückenteil am Besten gepasst. Das Komplettpaket aus drei Rückenteilen, Hüftgurt und Schultergurten wird nicht teurer sein als viele andere Tragehilfen in einer reinen babysize kosten.
Gut gelungen! ❤️

Zephyn's occupational therapist brought us a rocking horse to play with for the next two weeks to help strengthen his core muscles and he's having a blast using it. .

You know that PBS commercial that says "Every moment is a brain building moment?" (If you don't, watch PBS for like 2 seconds and you'll hear it). I feel like I hear this statement in my head constantly. It's a good reminder to be intentional with Lindie. If she's not sleeping, we're usually doing some sort of purposeful therapy. Lindie currently has three therapists: a physical therapist and speech pathologist (for therapy given by the state through a program called SoonerStart) and she also has another Speech Pathologist (for food therapy) at our local hospital. And then there's me. Her Mama who watches all these amazing ladies and tries to recreate what they do (totally imperfectly!) throughout the day but usually needs a guide to remember. Somedays I wanna just sit on my couch and drink coffee and let her play on the play yard (and honestly somedays I do!), but most days I shrug off my laziness and get intentional with her. This girl is only 6 months old and she's already teaching me so much about hard work. I just love her so. 💪🏻💗 #littlelindiefern .

Hier spielt Florentine mit @oogi.junior, den sie auf der #kindundjugend am Stand der Schweizer Firma @moluk_design geschenkt bekam und schon ins Herz geschlossen hat.
MOLUK entwirft #Spielsachen, die auf den ersten Blick total einfach wirken, Kinder (und auch Erwachsene) jedoch zu einer unendlichen Fülle an Spielmöglichkeiten einladen.
Wir mögen #Spielwaren , die viel Raum für #Fantasie lassen, daher sind auch die niedlichen Gestalten von Moluk uns sehr sympathisch!

Here you see Florentine playing with her new friend Oogi, who she adopted at the Kind&Jugend fair trade at the booth of the swizz toy manufacturer MOLUK.
MOLUK offers toys, which seem very simple, but which invite children and even adults to plenty of possibilities to play and interact. 
We love toys, which leave plenty of room for fantasy, so Oogi and his friends are made for us!

We had Eli's first IEP back in March. I decided to write a blog post about all the stuff I wish I had known before. Hopefully it can save someone some stress ❤️#elienhancesmylife

These two. ❤️ Today I overheard Eliza telling Lindie that "someday when we grow up we're going to be mommies" and for a second I started to interrupt their moment to tell Eliza the facts- that the likelihood of Lindie dating, let alone getting married and being a mommy, was like one in a million (according to my very accurate mind on this very cynical day) and that it's more likely she will live with you in your old age and you'll have to be her "mommy." And then I stopped myself because- who really knows? Who really knows if Lindie will graduate high school and attend college? Who really knows if Lindie will find a sweet beau to call hers? And who knows if one day she may decide to be a mommy? Who really knows? Definitely not me. Who's to say that just because she's my daughter with Down syndrome she's not going to do the things my daughter without Down syndrome will do? And who's to say that my daughter without Down syndrome will do all those things anyway? If I want to give her the best chance at HER future, I have to start believing in her now and living like I do so that others around me do too. And if she doesn't do those things? So be it. But I'm sure not going to let anyone (including myself) stand in the way of those dreams. ✨ #littlelindiefern #rosieandfern .

Love that she loves books as much as me. We've read to her every night since she was a tiny baby and we'll do it for as long as she wants us to. Books and stories are so important for speech and language development, the more you put in the better the outcome for your child.

It has been a year and a half since Theo had his heart surgery and today he had his heart check up. All went well. Theo's heart leans slightly more to the left axis than normal and he has right branch bundle block and a mildly leaky left valve and moderately leaky right. None of this is causing him any problems other than he may sweat quick or get cold quicker than other kids and get tired more easily. He is still highly susceptible to illnesses. Theo had all 3 of these defects pictured and also developed pulmonary hypertension. The small tissue of valves he did have were narrowed, mitral and triscupid valve stenosis. And the tiny bit of valves in his atrium (upper heart) had a hole through this tissue also. One of his ducts didnt close and meant his blood kept filtering into his lungs. It was never just a 'hole in the heart'. It was a gigantic hole in his heart which meant he had no 4 dividing chambers and any tissue was flimsy and damaged or had holes in it and then all that blood mixing together in one go shunted into the hole that still had access to his lungs. His surgeon closed this hole and had to rebuild all of Theo's chambers and repair the holes in his remaining tissue build up the narrowed valves and seperate them and add extra material. The surgeons did a marvellous job and Theo has done a marvellous job of growing well with his repair. Here's to another full year of no bad heart changes. ❤💙 #hearthappy #zipperclub #chdawareness #openheartsurgery #warrior #thischildcan #designergenes #upsyndrome #mrted #thesamebutdifferent #losethelabel #baby #dontscreenusout #theodorable #hearthero #theosdiary #braveboy #changingthefaceofbeauty #blogger #babybear #theosmum #challengingstereotypes #downrightperfect #guestblogger  #downsyndromeawareness #mysuperhero #mummybloggersuk #congenitalheartdefect #atrialventricularseptaldefect

It was a gigantic hole in his heart which meant he had no 4 dividing chambers and any tissue was flimsy and damaged or had holes in it and then all that blood mixing together in one go shunted into the hole that still had access to his lungs. His surgeon closed this hole and had to rebuild all of Theo's chambers and repair the holes in his remaining tissue build up the narrowed valves and seperate them and add extra material. The surgeons did a marvellous job and Theo has done a marvellous job of growing well with his repair. Here's to another full year of no bad heart changes. ❤💙 #hearthappy  #zipperclub  #chdawareness  #openheartsurgery  #warrior  #thischildcan  #designergenes  #upsyndrome  #mrted  #thesamebutdifferent  #losethelabel  #baby  #dontscreenusout  #theodorable  #hearthero  #theosdiary  #braveboy  #changingthefaceofbeauty  #blogger  #babybear  #theosmum  #challengingstereotypes  #downrightperfect  #guestblogger  #downsyndromeawareness  #mysuperhero  #mummybloggersuk  #congenitalheartdefect  #atrialventricularseptaldefect

Look what #zephynbear🐻 just did!! Zephyn walks around the house holding onto furniture but never has gotten up and pushed a toy walking across the room all by himself. He has been capable but always sits down immediately when we try to have him practice. He felt #confident today!! Go #zephyn !!! 👏👏👏💖🎉🎉🎉 .

We told Eliza a few months ago that her little sister has Down syndrome. She didn't really "get it" but we didn't really expect her to and she doesn't really need to yet anyway. We just didn't want it to be something we hid or avoided in conversation. We wanted her to grow up always knowing Lindie has Down syndrome. It's a part of who she is and so now it's a part of who our family is too.
.
Today at Chick-Fil-A she pointed to a little girl and said "Mommy, that little girl is *SO CUTE* just like Lindie! Does she have Down syndrome too?" (She didn't. But she was cute)! I kinda love that this is what Eliza sees in her little sis- a cute little baby girl. And that she is! (And a whole lot more, too)! 😉 #littlelindiefern .

I’m an editor at a magazine for people like me who have Down Syndrome. " "Nine out of ten babies with Down Syndrome in Germany aren’t born. A baby with Down Syndrome can be aborted days before the birth, in what is called 'late stage abortion.' My colleagues and I want to know what your opinion on late stage abortion is, Mrs Merkel. Why can babies with Down Syndrome be aborted shortly before birth?

So it looks like I get to go home today as soon as my walker arrives 🙌🏽 please pray for my pain, it is excruciating to move around but I'd much rather be home and in pain than be in the hospital and in pain🏥🔜🏡

Immer wieder eine Freude, mit ihr am Tisch zu sitzen. Auch wenn danach alles um sie herum aussieht wie Sau.... 🐷
Sie ist, was das Essen angeht im Vergleich zu ihrer großen Schwester so herrlich unkompliziert. 😊 Das darf dann bitte gerne so bleiben.

Bad weather and no school! It doesn't take a hurricane to destroy this house..... just our 3 little minions mixed with a little cabin fever! FINALLY, we have them all settled in for a movie. Fingers crossed we don't lose power. 🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽

I took this the morning of the accident. I miss him so much my heart hurts almost as much as the rest of my body. He's too young to come visit me, but I'm trying to think of ways that Eric can smuggle him in past security :) Today has been really hard, my pain has been unbearable and I don't think I can come home as soon as I was hoping. Please pray that I will heal quickly and that my pain will be tolerable enough to come home soon ❤️ #elienhancesmylife

Even though I had such an incredible weekend at DSDN's Rockin' Moms Retreat in Chicago, I am *so* happy to be back with this sister-sister duo. They make my heart happy and cup overflow... (most of the time)! 😉 #rosieandfern .

Bella sneaking Beyonce some #vegan pizza into dog prison. She's such a kind little sister 😂😂😂 (Bey had a major operation on Thursday so she's enjoying recuperating safely in the cage where little hands can't poke at her sore leg)
