This kid....😍😍 Can you see the newfound confidence in his face? Up until recently he has been a little too nervous to use his walker much. He was showing off tonight and surprised us all by taking a couple baby steps!🤗 #proudmommoment  It’s all about practice and getting him comfortable using it. He will be running this thing around in no time! #ad  Have you all heard about the all new reimagined @gymboree? They wanted to create clothing that would make kids feel great, inside and out. I’d say they succeeded. Baylor’s new outfits from their #madeyousmile  campaign are so versatile and super comfy.😅 If you haven’t yet, CHECK ‘EM OUT!😄 : : : : #madeyousmile  #hbsp  #hbtgymboree  #gymboreestyle  #gymboreebaby  #gymboreekids  #nothingdownaboutit  #baylorsbuddies  #betterwithbaylor 
I can’t believe how fast this summer has gone so far, it’s more than half over. What?! I have really enjoyed spending our days at the lake with this little ham.😍 I am trying to soak in every second. He is so fun right and I know I will look back at this summer reminiscing on some of my favorite memories. I know this is said a lot, but time please slow down.🙏🏼
We had such a fun weekend!😄 We took a little trip, did some hiking, swimming, visited friends, and went to a Rockies game. Baylor had a blast and is the best little adventure buddy. He was so fun to watch during his first MLB game and even caught a foul ball; he was pretty excited about it!⚾️ We hope everyone had as great a week as we did! What did you do this weekend?☺️
I bet you can’t guess where that dandelion ended up.😉 He seemed to have thought it was pretty tasty, though.😋 Is it just boys or do girls put everything in their mouths too?🤷🏻‍♀️ Summer is going to be so much fun with him this year! • • • #nothingdownabouthim  #homiewithanextrachromie  #motherhood  #momlife  #boymom  #itsaboything  #runwildmychild  #gottatasteit  #eatitall  #summerdays  #capturethemoment  #candidchildhood  #magicofchildhood  #babyb  #baylorsbuddies  #betterwithbaylor 
Last night I woke up around 2am and couldn’t fall back to sleep. I decided I would get some Baylor snuggles in and got up to get him. As I laid there with him sleeping peacefully in my arms, I couldn’t help but think about how great life is. The last several months have been HARD on me; going through a divorce is no easy task lol. It’s been one thing after another pushing finalization back, which has been super exhausting. BUT life has also been pretty good lately. Baylor is at a super fun age right now. I don’t know any little boy who’s sillier than he is. He is constantly making me laugh and reminding me what’s really important. We have made some pretty great friends who would do anything for us. They have reminded me to have fun once in awhile. At the end of the day (no matter how hard the day has been), that is what’s important. If Baylor is happy, how can I not be happy? His smile and laughter are SO contagious. When I look into those dark brown eyes of his I feel at home. I feel at peace and I feel an overwhelming amount of gratitude. I’m so grateful to be his mama. I’m also grateful to everyone who has supported Baylor and me in this long journey and who has helped make life better. Im just feeling super grateful tonight. I hope everyone will take a few minutes to remind themselves what’s really important in life and to remember all the things they’re grateful for today. ♥️
Lazy Sunday’s are the best, a day to rest and prepare for the long week ahead. Tonight we are watching Wonder. Who’s seen it? Is it gonna make me cry?😟 lol

Mama missed this cute boy while he was away this weekend. So glad I was able to get a lot done, but I’m happy to have him back for some cuddles tonight!♥️

Today is March 21st. A couple years ago, today would’ve been just like any other day to me too. Now, March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day. A day we celebrate DS, all it means to us, the way it’s changed us forever, and of course all our friends who rock an extra chromosome. I never thought that at such a young age I would be on this journey, but no way would I ever change it.
Today we will be finding 21 ways to serve. What better way to celebrate DS than to spread happiness by doing something kind for someone? We hope you’ll join us! Use #downwithservice and tag us to show us how you celebrated DS today. Also, don’t forget to #rockyoursocks to show the world you love someone with DS. It may strike up a conversation, so be prepared to answer! We would love for everyone who has one to wear their Baylor’s Buddies shirts too. We can’t wait to see how you celebrate WDSD!♥️

Baylor was showing off for Deb (his Occupational Therapist) yesterday!😄 About a month ago we started using the crawling machine thing (I’m not sure what it’s called, but I’m sure it had a better name🙄) to help Baylor get crawling. He hated it.😭 It made me so sad to see him crying so hard. We have been trying a few other things at home trying to find something that would work better for him and his needs. I had a random thought to try a swaddle blanket one day..... it has worked so well. He doesn’t scream when we use and thinks of it more as play time.🤗 Sometimes you have to get creative!💁🏻‍♀️ This guy will be cruising in no time!😌

I miss my babe so much when he’s not with me. I’m so happy he’s back home with mama now.😄
Who else is excited for the 21st, World Down Syndrome Day? Before Baylor, I didn’t even know about WDSD. Down Syndrome is something to be celebrated, though, so I’m glad this day exists.
Inspired by @incaseyouredown, this year (and every year from here on out) we have decided to find 21 ways to serve. We would love for everyone to join us and share with us how they served by using #downwithservice. We hope you’ll all participate!😄💕

“Here sleeps a boy with a head full of MAGICAL DREAMS and a heart full of WONDER and hands that will SHAPE THE WORLD.”😴👼 There’s nothing like a sleeping baby! I mean, they’re great when they’re awake too, but they’re just so peaceful when they’re asleep. Since we received our @lollipopbabycam I’ve been able to rest a little easier. Knowing that I can watch and listen for him wherever I am has given me such peace. This thing can hear EVERYTHING and I mean everything lol. It also has a great camera (swipe to see). I love that the bendable stem (is that what you’d call it? Haha) makes it easy to be put anywhere in the room. I highly recommend @lollipopbabycam! • • • • #lollipopbabycam  #babymonitor  #dockatot  #sleepingpeacefully  #littleangelboy  #iloveyoulittleone  #mamasboy  #latenightpost  #sleepingbaby  #motherhoodrising  #momwin  #lifeisbetterwithyou  #betterwithbaylor  #baylorsbuddies 
This guy is getting so big, and he knows it! Lol The last couple of weeks he has really taken off developmentally. He has started scooting himself around, jabbering way more, standing against things, etc. He’s trying SO hard to pull himself up on things too, it won’t be long till he’s got it down. I love watching him figure things out, he gets so excited when he does!😄
.
Baylor had a doctors appointment yesterday too. He’s doing great and getting bigger. He’s in the 12th percentile in weight and 15th percentile for height on the prematurity chart.
.
A couple weeks ago Baylor had an eye exam. He is a little near sighted. Where everything he does is basically right in front of him, we agreed that glasses wouldn’t benefit him too much right now. He has a follow up in a couple months. I wouldn’t be surprised if he got glasses then.🤓
.
There’s a little Baylor update for you all. We hope everyone is enjoying their week so far! What are everyone’s plans for the rest of the week? We are hoping to get some more sunshine!🌞 So we can ((maybe)) go on a walk.🤞🏼We can’t wait for warmer weather over here!🤗

“Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is, and to forgive yourself over and over again for doing everything wrong.”
Isn’t motherhood incredible? I’ve been feeling a little down on myself lately, telling myself that I’m not a good enough mother, and that I’ll never amount to the mom Baylor deserves. It’s hard not to let your worries and your fears consume you.
Recently, though, I woke up feeling so grateful. Baylor was sound asleep lying next to me; he usually wakes me up with a giant smile (which I absolutely LOVE!😍). Instead of getting up and getting a few things done, I laid there and watched him. He was so peaceful and looked just like a little angel.
As I took in the moment, I began to feel so incredibly blessed. Knowing Heavenly Father trusted me to love and care for this child made my worries disappear. Heavenly Father always knows exactly what He’s doing. I’m pretty sure He gave me that little bit of time to think about this and come to a deeper realization and understanding of motherhood.
Motherhood isn’t about being the best mom. It’s not about doing what other people tell you is best or comparing yourself to another. It’s about TRYING your best and realizing where you may have failed and can do better. It’s about love and kindness and understanding. I think we as moms, understand our kids needs more than anyone in the whole world will ever be able to. We have this bond that is unexplainable. And I think we are all doing a pretty amazing job.
I look at this happy smiling boy and I see how much he loves and needs me, and that’s how I know I’m doing everything right. He turns to me to make him feel better when he is sad. All of his needs are met and that’s why he smiles like this. He is loved and he knows it.
Don’t compare yourself to other moms. No one else can mother your child(ren) like you can. Don’t let yourself or anyone else tell you that you aren’t good enough either. Motherhood isn’t for the faint of heart. You are doing your best and that’s all that matters.

Who has had sick kiddos this winter?! I feel like this year has been especially bad. After spending a little time in the hospital while Baylor had pneumonia I knew I had to find a better nasal aspirator. The Nose Frida’s aren’t too bad, but who wants to do that multiple times a day? Not me. Lol I was so excited when I found @nosiboo_usa! This little thing makes it SO much easier! It’s currently sitting on my dresser (along with a couple of my other cold and flu season must haves) because we use it so much. Anywayyyy, if your kids are constantly getting sick, GET YOU ONE! You won’t regret it. It’s been a life savor for us!😅

So happy that our burp cloths have been helpful!  Thanks for your kind words! *Link to our ALL natural cotton, muslin burp cloths in bio.

Baylor’s first tooth poked thru a few days ago!😅 I didn’t think he would get any teeth for a while still.... He didn’t show any signs of teething and has been so happy so I was pretty surprised to feel something sharp (really sharp!😳) in his mouth one day! Lol I can’t wait to see that little grin with some (more visible) baby teeth in there!😄😍
Baylor has been drooling like crazy so this burp cloth from @weesupplyco has been so nice to have! They are pretty big  and really absorbent too. Message me for a link to buy.🙌🏼

I hope everyone had a good day filled with loved ones.💕 On this day last year we were preparing to break out of Primary Children’s. This night was the first time we were able to sleep in the same room as Baylor. I remember so vividly the feelings I felt that night. Feelings of peace and anxiousness. I’m so grateful for the journey I’m on and the people I have met along the way. If you have any questions about our NICU experience, I’d love to answer them!☺️ ♡ Happy Love Day friends!♥️ ♡ ♡ ♡ #nicujourney  #nicugraduate  #flashback  #happyvalentinesday  #downsyndrome  #morealikethandifferent  #bestvalentine  #heartstealer  #piecesofmotherhood  #motherhoodmoments  #mytinymoments  #betterwithbaylor  #baylorsbuddies
