etst ER and three staples in the back of her head today after falling off the bed, and Sister's all smiles and love tonight. Today sucked. But tonight's better. It always gets better. She gets movies with big sister, two Popsicles and a pony. 2d
  •   findingjoyandsharingbeauty Oh how scary, I'm so glad she's all smiles again! My sweet boy slammed his finger in the door this weekend. Lots of tears, followed by our favorite xmas movie and a cookie. The pony would have been a nice touch. :) 24h

etst The daily witching hour walk that starts with me all and ends with Dash stretching his arms out as we walk so that his hands touch every leaf, every flower, every bush in our path. I love the juxtaposition of Mom on sensory overload, scrambling to quiet the day's input; and Kids, open to the world and all it offers, trying to touch and feel every experience along the way. Helluva team. 3d
  •   feedthatbaby I should do this summer is looong and we r gettin on each others nerves! Nothing an evening stroll wouldn't cure huh? 2d
  •   marcia0608 @feedthatbaby when my 5 (as of yesterday)-year-old twins are crabby, I take them for a walk. There's something about the fresh air 2d

  •   cassa07 @etst when my daughter was younger we were reading this book and I accidentally said, "Big Buttbrown Hair" we both laughed until we had tears. One of my favorite memories as a mom, one of my favorite books still! 3d
  •   house054 Their room turned out amazing!!! Love!! 2d
  •   laura_bellomo_ @cassa07 my husband and I used to refer to it as "little/big hairy brown nut" and it was a great little in joke between us- until we started almost saying it when we were reading the book to our girls!! so then that had to stop lol 1d

etst Thought about this scenario since the day I found out Nella was going to be a girl: two sisters, one room, one big bed. Tonight's their first night sharing their new bed in a sister room, and I'm a big sap, so bear with me. I've come a long way since Nella was born and really try not to over sentimentalize Down syndrome even though I'm naturally a sap--because objectively understanding and sharing about D.S. and seeing Nella as a child more than "a child with Down syndrome" is as important to Nella's success and future as my instinct to tell you all how adorable almond eyes are or how her little victories are hugely celebrated. But tonight? All those lines marking where I've grown were erased, and I clearly remembered thinking right after she was born that maybe this scenario would be different from what I had hoped while I was pregnant. Look in the magic mirror: two girls huddled together, tired and giggling, legs entangled, bonded for life. It has nothing to do with Down syndrome and everything to do with family and love. Lots of memories to be made in this room with these girls. 👭 7d

etst Summer reads. 7d
  •   elizagracie16 Oh definitely read the fault in our stars! It is amazing!! 7d
  •   erinbettis @smartins76, I was disappointed too. I think it's well written, but the story-line was off for me for some reason. In short, there are far better summer reads. 7d
  •   house054 I've heard "The Fault In Our Stars", both the book + the movie are SO good! 7d
  •   shargirl72 The fault in our stars is FANTASTIC! .... OKAY....OKAY! 7d
  •   shargirl72 Loved Gone Girl. .loved Sharp objects by Gillian Flynn also. I am reading Dark Places atm.. and it's DARK for sure! Gillian Flynn is an amazing author. ♡ 7d
  •   cpnkcullen 'This I believe' ! 7d
  •   peytonlsmomma ️ the fault in our stars! Both the book and the movie are amazing!! 7d
  •   abbeybernardi I love The conscious parent!! It made me realize parenting can be so much simpler and therefore easier than society makes us feel. Lots of love 6d

etst Pic texted from @vintagegiggles. I turned in 81 pieces of baby memories from all my kids--from birthday dresses and Lainey's first-day-of-kindergarten outfit to the nightgown I wore the night I became a mom. They're all cut up now, ready to be sewed into a big quilt that will be stitched together next week. A ceremonious act for this sentimental hoarder who is learning that cleaning up and letting go clears so much space for good. 1w
  •   sarahmseibert I can't wait to see it finished. It will be gorgeous. 7d
  •   bradotomato Cool!!! 7d
  •   vintagegiggles @lgarsh yes! we can make this quilt for anyone! would you mind contacting us through our website or emailing us at threads@vintagegiggles.com so we can discuss specifics for the quilt you are looking for? thank you for asking!! happy Fourth of July! 7d
  •   rdkate Not the nightgown! I could never part with mine. I'll never forget putting my little one down my nightgown on my chest to keep him snugly warm....what a precious idea though, I hope you share the end result! 7d
  •   bandwagonbaby What a wonderful idea! @etst 7d
  •   house054 Love this idea!! I might copy you! 7d
  •   beeandbabes In that same boat right now! It is so freeing once we start letting go but I have to work on it everydayb 6d
  •   candstom @etst hi Kelle, I would so love to know what u do with cute cards/little notes your kids.. Well perhaps when the younger 2 are big enough. I just have them in boxes but there must be a more creative way of doing this.. Love to know your thoughts... 3d
