Nikki continues to share her story (2/7) makatonwithlucinda At my 20 week scan, my world fell apart. The sonographer detected a heart defect and referred me for more detailed scans. There are literally no words on this earth like ‘I think I can see something wrong with your baby’s heart’. They are the hardest words I have ever had to hear. We hadn’t wanted to know the sex of our baby, but once they said they could see a heart defect, I felt like I needed to know ‘who’ we were rooting for. Every part of me wanted it to be my heart, not hers – I still do. The sonographer wrote our baby’s sex on a piece of paper and stapled it shut so we could decide later, back at home whether to look or not. Back at home, we asked Zack to open it for us, and we learnt that we were expecting a baby girl 💗. I will cherish that ripped (thanks, zack, I know you were only 4 but carefully would have been fine.) piece of paper forever.

Today Marnie is 14 months. Her personality is something else. Her understanding is second to none. Her purity and innocence shines through every single day. She eats everything I give her, including olives 😂. She chats away all day and is a fantastic mimic.

Look who’s a big girl now🥰🥰 You guys know that, for almost 3-4 months she’s using swing in side position and today we achieve front seating in swing. It’s really tough for her to balance and weight shift while swinging, but look at this strong girl. She did it so beautifully💖 Veda’s spine is much more stronger than her abdominal muscles that’s why she use to fall back when it comes to balancing on any platform.

Well hello there sweet baby girl. I’m loving these cloudy days. We took a break from mommas endless editing today to take these photos mid day. For anyone who lives here in the desert, you all know that isn’t an easy thing to do. We normally have never ending sun. This softness in the lighting is a welcome change for this lady.

If you’ve ever questioned the value of social media, know this Today, just a few hours ago, the Louisiana Senate voted 34-0 to make it illegal to discriminate against someone with a disability in the organ transplant process LARGELY because of connections made on social media. EviesLaw is officially headed to the Governor’s Office to be signed into law and as crazy as it sounds, in so many ways, we have FB and IG to thank An IG post by an awesome DS mom ( sweet.on.sutton) inspired by a post by another awesome DS mom ( downrightwild) made us here in Louisiana question, How on God’s green Earth are with disabilities being denied organ transplants simply because they have a disability??? But then we saw more posts and we knew we had to do something That’s when we found the National DS Society’s page ( ndssorg) and the incredible resources they provide in conjunction with the Autistic Self Advocacy Network. With their help, we were able to draft an anti-discrimination bill for LA. And we knew exactly who to reach out to We’d been Facebook stalking this incredible, super mom and advocate Katie Corkern ( kscorkern) for YEARS and even though we had never met, we KNEW she was just the rockstar to take us to the next level! And sure enough, right away she hooked us up with the sweetest, most passionate legislator, Rep. Malinda White ( malinda_brumfield_white) . With their help - bolstered by the advocacy of the coolest group of DS parents on social media upsidedownsla - and all of YOUR support following our journey and blasting legislators with emails at every step we did it. 🙌🏼 Evie’s Law is a real thing. It’s happening Guys, we may literally save lives and we have all of you and all the amazing connections made from these silly apps to thank. So thank you. Thank you.

“If I’m being honest, Nurse’s have just about the most important role when it comes to quality care. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Being sick for 6 years I have had both good and bad Nurse’s, I think because the nurse isn’t a doctor many people overlook the importance of having a nurse who has compassion, who will help advocate for you when they see something is wrong and someone who you can trust with your life You might be shocked to find out that on multiple occasions a nurse has played a huge part in saving my life, I have so many names of people I remember that have cared for me in the very start of my health battle Yesterday we finally got to flush and draw labs from my port, while my current home nurse is out of town I was delighted to see the amazing women who had been my home nurse 6 years ago when I was around 14 years old and I was super new to the idea of Feeding-Tubes This is all to say to those who are a nurse or know one please remember how important you really are, many times when I’ve been upset about my situation you are the one who helped keep a smile on my face, allowed me to laugh even when it hurts to laugh Thank you so much, for being in my life and teaching me how to make the most of my life even with all my hardships. 💕 *if you are friends with/are a nurse please comment or tag down below, I want you to know how important you are*

We went and visited our friend Miss Mary at my old job today. The first person Scarlett ever jumped out of my arms to go see. Oh how we miss seeing her every day. The gal I talked everything baby with when we were supposed to be working 🤫 Excitingly telling her to give me her hand every time I felt Scarlett kick. Such sweet days we had, but it’s even more sweet taking Scar to visit. She just loves watching her grow. Thank you for loving on my girl. We love Miss Mary! 💛

A picnic at Wheeler Farm with my Jaynerbug! We ate our lunch, fed the ducks, took a ride on the cow train and saw all the animals, including a brand new baby sheep!🐑 Jayne did not want to leave the sheep but could not understand how the baby was eating 😂 It was so funny The best part though was just talking with her. When it’s just the two of us, she has so much to say and I love it! We were walking along and she told me that her favorite colors are pink, purple and yellow and then asked me what my favorite colors are.👏 😳 This may seem like a simple thing but inside I was doing a little happy dance and told her how nice that was of her to ask. We have been working on her communication skills—looking people in the eye, asking questions about them, etc and she is getting it! I am SO so proud of her!👏 . One of the best parts of having a with Down Syndrome is that you learn to appreciate the little things and realize that every milestone—big and small—is worth celebrating! This is a BIG thing in my book and a victory worth celebrating! 🥳 jaynerbug picnic wheelerfarm downsyndrome nothingdownaboutit upsyndrome theluckyfew itsthelittlethingsthatcount t21 shemakesmehappy changingthefaceofbeauty

“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You” - Dr Seuss ⁣ ⁣ Look at this passionate participation award winner! I can’t believe the school year is over. It couldn’t have ended in a better way. I was so nervous sending my buddy off way back in August. We did it though! We went w our guts even when things didn’t seem right. ⁣ ⁣ Cameron has progressed and shown so much growth. He has made friends, some that will be forever. He has become more confident and independent. We are so grateful for his teachers and his therapists. They are part of our big Team Butler and I hope they realize how important they are. I am so proud of Cameron! And you know what? I’m proud of myself and the rest of the 6 pack. We really do all of this together! 👊🏼

Everybody wants happiness. Nobody wants pain, but you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain. When I found out Lucie would be born with Down syndrome I thought the storms had come and they were here to stay. How wrong I was. Is every day sunshine ☀️ and rainbows 🌈? Absolutely Not. But are most days sunshine and rainbows? Heck yes! This little ray of sunshine is worth every drop of rain. ☔️ Rainbow boutique bow from cinderellabowtique Use code Lucie15 for a discount!

Thank you all so much for praying for Amellia and her bloodwork yesterday. The good news is that her white blood cell count is higher than it has been in a year. The bad news is it’s still too low, so our doctor will consult with other doctors around the world who treat patients with DS with similar numbers and then decide where we go from here. We love you all! Thank you for your support for our family. ❤️ Also, can we talk about this picture of Amellia taken by the lovely lilyglass? 😍🥰 amelliabelle theluckyfew downsyndrome kidsmodel changingthefaceofbeauty
