I dig being at Tecolote. The same beach in Baja, different year.
I dig looking at these pictures of Micah and Moxie from 2 years ago
Moxie was a year and a half and we had no idea then that 2 years later, she’d be the one leading Micah all over the place:
If you are a parent of a child with Down syndrome – especially a new parent – all I can say is: CHILL OUT. Everything that seems like SUCH AN ENORMOUS DEAL right now is likely to fall neatly in the “what was I worried about?” folder that we file away silly worries that we once had about our kids. Like, ‘is Johnny going to get teeth?’ – yes, Johnny is going to get teeth; ‘will this kid learn to communicate?’ – yes, that kid is going to learn to communicate (- maybe on his/her own timeline though! gotta keep you on your toes, right?!).
On that note, I dig this old photo of me and my girl:
Here’s another one – totally a selfie – I have to remember to take more of them though because I’m forgetting to, and we all read that post about keeping mom in the picture, right?
I dig this old one of Mikey, even though he looks kind of pissed off in it.
Here’s another one that he looks a little happier in. Sort of.
Oh, but wait – here’s one from NOW in which he DEFINITELY looks happier.
I dig it.
I think they do too.
More random digs:
- I was on Scary Mommy again, yay! Learning to Run
- Ds Blog Hop – if you have a post/link that you’d like to share about Down syndrome or disability, that would be pretty diggable
- I was also on Mamapedia again, 5 Things to Expect With a Child With a Disability
No children were harmed in the making of this post
