It's that time again. Down Syndrome Awareness month. I've been debating on whether or not to even think about my tradition to blog every day of the month to raise awareness. Especially since I haven't touched my blog in about 3 months. But here I am. I can't promise to blog every day, but I'm going to try really hard to take this as an opportunity to get back to blogging. There are a lot of things going on in our lives, and we are facing big choices as Kennedy gets closer to aging out of Early Intervention.
It's hard to believe that it was more than 2.5 years ago when we had the shock of our lives. When our first child, a sweet little girl, was born with Down syndrome. The news took us by surprise and the day of her birth brought about many emotions. Especially fear. But, I'm here to say, while sometimes I do still fear the future, the present is pretty awesome.
Kennedy continues to amaze me. Every. Single. Day. She is learning so much, and her personality really shows. She is talking and signing more, though her biggest delay continues to be speech. We are making progress though, and she definitely has the ability to communicate with us. She is still the sweetest little girl. So friendly and outgoing and by far, the BEST big sister. She loves Caleb so much, and they are best friends. They play so well together, and love on each other all the time. She asks for him first thing when she wakes up, and is lost when he's not around. I love the bond that they have.
I promise, I will have photos tomorrow, when I'm posting from the computer.
