Today I am thankful for a friend who not only included Addison in her daughter's awesome birthday party, but she also didn't bat an eye when Addison accidentally spilled her water all over the pink tablecloth and homemade confetti. She didn't care when Addison kept going back for only one thing-- crackers. She laughed when Addison escaped the party to roam upstairs and randomly paw through her purses (😳). And she didn't say a word about Addison interrupting the adult conversation a million times to tell us she hadn't spilled her water again but that she was going to get another cracker. Here's the thing about inclusion: it's messy. It can be annoying. It can get in the way. It isn't all tied up in a neat bow of a Facebook "like" where you walk away unaffected. Sometimes it puts you out in a big way. And sometimes it puts you out in a combination of little ways. Today I walked away this party with a full, thankful heart. Because "annoyances" were just labeled "party" and "it is what it is" and everyone had a great time. Not in spite of including Addison. NOT. Everyone had a great time. period. And that was so amazing to be a part of today. I am beyond grateful for amazing friends who just seem to get things that I don't even know how to articulate yet. Addison walked away with a smile on her face and a bag full of chocolate. Today's party seriously made her week. As we got in the car she said in her clear, low voice, "Mama, I do a great job." And as I thought about her mistakes and saw her earnest face and realized all the listening and working and trying that she put into the party on her end-- I looked at her cake-covered, sweet face and replied, "Yes, baby. You did a great job." Because inclusion from her end is messy too. It's HARD work. And sometimes her great job might not look like you want it to-- but it's still a GREAT job. #inclusion #birthdayparty #downsydrome

My morning. #raisingreaders #downsyndromesmarty πŸ˜πŸ“•

#fbf to my favorite heart echo picture of all time. Yes my kids fight and struggle with selfishness and so many other typical sibling things...but even while sorting through all of that, I LOVE that they have each other. Eli so gently holding Addison's hand here really sums it all up for me. They fight hard, love hard. Is there really any other way? #siblings 😍❀️

That moment when you realize she snuck a green marker into her room last night. 😳😳😳 Apparently her creative streak is just on FIRE this week. #lifewithAddison #beinggreen πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸΈ

I kid you not-- she tore a small strip of bark off the tree in front of our house and then fashioned it into a bracelet. A cute one, too! I love the way this girl's mind works! #Downsyndromefashionista #creative #theluckyfew

Okay so I just wanted to give an update from my Instastories the other day. I mentioned how my hair has gotten curlier and curlier with each baby and how I have no idea what to do with it. So many of you suggested getting a specific curl cut-- which I did today! Now keep in mind, I had to run and pick up my kids before she had time to style it at all-- so this "after" is only air dry with a little mousse. I have more working and experimenting to do, but I can see this is going to make a big difference!!! Thank you for pointing me that direction! Isn't it amazing how the simplest things can make the biggest differences? Here's to being informed, and awesome Instagram buddies willing to share. πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜πŸ˜˜ (sorry for the weird hair picture clogging up your feed. Regular scheduled programming will resume soon! πŸ˜‚)

This girl!!! We have reached the sweet spot inbetween infant and terrible twos...and I am loving it. She is way too much fun.😍 Today in the cart she was tickling Eli and then laughing out loud. And she's constantly determined to be part of the big kid fun. She was devastated to miss the pull up dress up game as I was putting her to bed when it happened. Seriously πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. #4thbaby #morgancharlotte #loveher πŸ˜β€οΈπŸ‘ΆπŸΌ

Start of Costco walking "fun activity!!!" morning trip. (Swipe right) End of Costco walking trip. This pretty much sums it up. What can I say except #momlife πŸ˜³πŸ˜–πŸ˜‚ #4kids #costco #shoppingwithkids #summerbreak

Last day of 1st grade. Not sure how I got lucky enough to be the one that she calls "Mama".😍❀️ #downsyndromeprincess
