Happy world down syndrome day, welles! i don’t care that the world looks at you a little differently because your differences are something to be celebrated. ♥ïļ the magic of that extra chromosome enriches our family. you and your awesome t21 friends enrich this world! last year someone (can’t remember who ðŸ˜Ģ) posted “how does one tiny extra chromosome take all of the malice out of a human?” i don’t know.... but i sure do think that’s something worth cherishing. our planet is so lucky to have this diagnosis in it. happy world down syndrome day to all of you! ☚ïļ♥ïļ #nothingdownaboutit

Our first set of kid stitches. we figured it would be ames! ðŸ’Ĩ though it wasn’t from jumping off the kitchen island or wrestling with brother... it was merely a fall that he could not break as he was clenching his beloved stash of cars. he was a real champ through it all! ðŸ˜Ģ #poorbuddy

Have you lost a loved one to b****t cancer? we are creeping up on the year mark of losing this beautiful woman. with no blood or legal connection, she was still the aunt who my sisters, kids and i loved and admired wholeheartedly. #brand_partner watching her battle b****t cancer twice and eventually leaving behind three kids and an adoring husband was absolutely heartbreaking. because of jill and other loved ones who fought against b****t cancer, i stand proudly behind @susangkomen . please share your b****t cancer story with susan g. komen at www.komen.org/yourone.

Tuesday mornings it’s just the two of us for about 3 whole hours. we do a lot of snuggling and jabbering. what are some of your favorite one-one-one activities with your toddler (technically five-year-old ðŸ˜Ū)?? though i’m fine to just snuggle that whole chunk of time. 😜 @instasize.official

Last week, i turned my head for literally 30 seconds to round up shoes and jackets while these little leprechauns (still don’t know exactly how ðŸĪ”) snuck inside this game. you should have seen the process of me climbing onto the ski-ball machine next to this game to pry them out. ðŸĪĶ🏞‍♀ïļ without making much eye contact with any bystanders, i rushed our little circus out. all after getting some video footage of course... because someday i’m going to have to prove to them why i’ve gone insane. ðŸĪŠðŸ˜… #theseboys #ninjas

I used to have to sit on the ground with welles’ head looking at the ceiling between my legs while pinning his arms under my legs to brush his teeth... 😆 sounds like torture, i know. he’s never been a big fan of the toothbrush. ðŸĪĶ🏞‍♀ïļ we recently got these slim little electric brushes from @getquip and love them so much that i wanted to share with you guys. 🙌🏞 he (along with scar and ames) love the vibrations from the toothbrush and never put up a fight, instead grabbing it the second i swipe on the paste and go to town cleaning those teeth! they’re an easy grip and we hang them right back on the mirror when we are done. can i get a hallelujah for better hygiene?! 😂ðŸĪ·ðŸž‍♀ïļ#quippartner (use code “nothingdownaboutit” for a $10 refill credit)

Yesterday i found this boy n***d and giggling in soaking bedding after naps. this was just following scout (ðŸķ) pooping all over my car on his way to get shots at the vet and ames two blow-out diapers in his jammies. i never could have imagined cleaning this many #1 and #2 messes.... ðŸ˜Ģ good thing these three boys have such darling faces and costco sells clorox wipes in bulk. ðŸĪ·ðŸž‍♀ïļ

Sunny day and light sweaters yesterday... snow storm today. beautiful! but confusing. this has felt like the longest winter of my life. 😆 anyone else dreaming of popsicles and backyard slip-n-slides? ☀ïļ ❄ïļ

Just over a year ago we were so shaken by the news that we may lose a much-too-young grandma. #brand_partner i could not even think of the devastation that scott, the kids and i would go through in possibly losing scott’s mom. our kids are so close to grandma... scarlett in particular has such a strong connection with my sweet mother-in-law. did you know that b****t cancer will affect 1 in 8 women in the us in her lifetime? in the last two years it’s affected four women in our family and taken the life of a dearest family friend. 💔 please share with @susangkomen your b****t cancer story or who you want to protect from b****t cancer at https://www.komen.org/yourone/. #unacceptable #susangkomen #thefactsthestats
