The Purpose of this Blog

The goal of this blog is to provide education and bring about higher awareness about Down syndrome. It is to share that life with Down syndrome (DS) is not scary, horrible, or to be feared.

My experience comes from raising my daughter, Nebraska Larae (Braska), born November 2006 with Down syndrome.
The posts on this blog are related in some way to life with DS or disability, and they are reposted here from my other family blogs. There are links to those blogs in the margin on the right side of this blog if you would like to visit them directly.

Thank you for coming by.

Easter Dress Value

If you are very observant and have been around for more than a year, you might have noticed that Braska's Easter dress looked familiar. It is the only one she's ever worn in the 3 Easter seasons she's had so far. Grandma C got it for her when she was only a few months old. It's a 3-6 month size. It still makes me giggle to think she can wear it. This year it was a little short, but still plenty big. The little bloomers that came with it are still way too big around the waist. My little skinny minnie!

4/1/07 (Palm Sunday, but she was in the hospital the next week on Easter so it was good that she wore it early that year!) She weighed just under 11 lbs at 4+ months.

3/23/08, 16 months, 15+ lbs

4/12/09, almost 29 months, 21 lbs

You just can't beat that for getting good use out of a dress. Plus Kinlee can wear it sometime very soon, I'm sure. Fun fact: Both Kinlee and Braska wore 3-6 month dresses this year. Amazing!

Just for fun, here's a couple more pics from Easter of my little chicks.
