3:21 Blog Hop Nov 2013

Every month, a cool blog called With a Little Moxie hosts a fun blog hop all about Down syndrome! At the end of the post you will find the link to click to add your own post (if you link up, you end up linking to every blog who has the hosting thing in their post!) Each month participants are asked to share one truth, one tip, and one picture. I hope you enjoy mine!

One truth
They say babies with Down syndrome almost have an extended babyhood because they tend to be both smaller in size and behind in milestones compared to others their same age. But platitudes like "babies don't keep" and "time flies when you're having fun"? Totally still apply. I can't believe we've had this little cutie for 3/4 of a year already!!

One tip
Daniel Tiger has a cute song about "in some ways we are different, but in so many ways, we are the same!" that would be excellent to bust out if you are ever discussing the implications of your baby or child having DS with a preschooler or early elementary school student. 

One photo
Apparently peas are delicious and funny. He did get some in his mouth, I promise :)

Daniel the Tiger might have the best advice for talking to a preschooler about ANYTHING. We seriously quote Daniel the Tiger at least twice a day at our house. And thankfully small child accept differences very easily. They can teach us all quite a bit.

I know Im late to the game but just now reading your blog! I love your one tip- being as we have only known for a year, I must say his second year has flown and I can finally relate to other parents when they say "time flies".
