Special Exposure Wednesday - Sharing

Last week after Kayla got home from school Lucas crawled after her to hang out in her room. A few minutes later I peeked in on them to see what they were up to. I found Kayla had taken both Magna Doodles out of her closet and set them up for her and Lucas to play with. Moments like that make up for the moments she takes toys away from him!





Get It Down; 31 for 21Just a reminder that October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month and in honor of Kayla, and all those who have Down syndrome, I will be participating in the 31 for 21 challenge. Every single post won't be about Down syndrome, but I will post every day. If you would like to join in (you don't have to have someone with Down syndrome in your life either) just let Tricia know.

The lovely LauraJ is participating too; she will be doing a series of interviews on bloggers who have kids with special needs. I was her first interviewee - thanks Laura!

What sweet photos! My two year old granddaughter is doing the same thing with her baby sister. She's takes the toy away and then gives it right back and says "ah baby" and then she hugs and kisses her.

Siblings! How cute is that. Isn't it cool when they start interacting? (interacting positively, that is)

Amy said...

That is so sweet, Michelle! Just shows how much she loves him. Hey, did you get my email about the lost link for Kayla? I don't know if I deleted the email by accident or I never got it because my computer fried or what, but could you please send it again so I can donate? Thank you!

Nancy M. said...

Tammy said...

Oh, I love these pictures! Isn't it wonderful when they actually play nicely together!

Thankfully we're seeing more and more of that with Snuggle Bug and Boo and it just warms my heart.

I'm going to send you a video of the two of them playing together that Oronzo made. It's really cute!
