When Noah was born one of the fist things someone said to me “There’s never been a better time in the history of the world for someone to be born with Down syndrome!” I think that’s a fantastic (and true) quote, and I couldn’t agree more. There are so many resources (and research) available today to help children with Down syndrome reach their full potential, all of which will only continue to grow as we head into the future. So that quote will continue to be more true as time goes on.

One of my favorite things about our little boy is how much he likes to dance! I absolutely love it, and could honestly watch him do it all day. What’s really funny is much of a hip-hop fan he is. I’m not kidding!
If a hip-hop song is on (in this case, Kris Kross) he’ll dance his little face (and feet!) off and when it’s over, or if I change the station or turn the volume down he’ll say “more” “more “more” until I turn it back on!
It’s seriously the. cutest. thing. ever![Read More…]
We’re proud to announce that Noah reached another major milestone toady…standing up on his own! Most children actually stand on their own (without help from people or objects, which he has been able to do for a while) before taking their first steps, but not our little guy! In fact, we recently posted a video of him trying to stand on his on, but not quite being able to. This is probably due to his desire to be moving rather than stand still. Kids are going to achieve their milestones in their own time and in their own order which is fine by me, why follow the “rules.”[Read More…]
We were excited to learn that the National Down Syndrome Society wanted to feature our little boy’s picture in a special video to be shown in the heart of Times Square to kick off the New York City Buddy Walk, and help rise awareness about Down syndrome!
I’ve already mentioned how much I enjoy New York, and especially Times Square…so this was a particularly special parenting moment for me. (In fact, I’m such a fan of NYC that this was actually his second time to go…and he’s only one year old!)[Read More…]
