"Y'all - don't miss it. Don't get so caught up in what your sweet baby is doing or not doing. Don't obsess about this step or the next step or the one after that or what is going to happen twenty years down the line. Because one day you'll look at baby pictures and think about how adorable that baby was and how all you can remember is therapy and you can't even remember what her hair smelled like. So, ENJOY your baby. It doesn't matter when they walk or crawl or talk. It matters that they are here and that you love them and that they know it. Just don't miss it."
Today I got to meet, face to face, in my own home, the beautiful Chrystal of One More, More Than One, as well as the gorgeous Playette and BD. Good people, I tell you! I've been smiling all day. Chrystal and I had so much to talk about, and it was just really nice to be face to face with someone who could relate on so many levels. I don't know . . . it's hard to explain. Aside from the fact that I just really like Chrystal, it was good to meet one of Finn's "peeps." And you know what? They're kids. That's all. Well, okay, babies but still. Doing all the usual things that children their ages do: following the big kids around, screeching with happiness, pulling the toilet paper off the roll just because. Malea is a DOLL, and I swear I'm not just saying that because I know Chrystal will be reading this ;) Such a love bug, and smart! She took to my kids, and vice versa, like ducks to water. The whole thing was such a treat!
On July 7, 2008 our sixth child, Finnian, was born at home into loving hands. Shortly after he was born, we learned that he has Down syndrome. This is the ongoing story of how our family is being transformed by this little boy.
Hi! I'm Lisa, a 40-something Wonder Mom to six kiddos: Kevin (14), Joey (9), twins, Annabelle and Daisy (6), Lilah (4) and Finnian (3). Oh, and my husband is the multi-talented Michael. He tries to keep me in check, but I just keep on writing.
