8th Annual 31 for 21 Blog Challenge

Please join in for the 8th Annual 31 for 21 Blog Challenge for Down Syndrome Awareness Month!

If you're new to the blog challenge please read this post to get a little background info on it and how it was started. I didn't come up with the idea, but this is the 3rd year that I'm hosting it.

If you don't want to read the above linked post, here is a quick summary of what 31 for 21 is all about:

- Down syndrome is 3 copies of the 21st chromosome (in medical terms it is Trisomy21, frequently shortened to T21).
- October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month
- There are 31 days in Oct
- Blog every day (31) in Oct to raise awareness about Down syndrome (T21)
- So ... 31 for 21 Blog Challenge

A couple of guidelines:
- You don't have to blog about Down syndrome every day; just blog every day about whatever you want
- You should mention, at least once, that you are participating in "31 for 21"
- You don't have to be a parent, or grandparent, of someone with Down syndrome to participate
- Grab the button and post somewhere on your blog or in a blog post
- Sign Mr Linky so other bloggers can see all the participants
- Meet new bloggers
- If you tweet, use #31for21

Hi Michelle,

I'm doing this challenge for the third time. I'm blogging for my almost two year old niece, Elyse, alongside my sister-in-law Adelle, who is participating on her own blog. Thanks so much for hosting -- we love 31-for-21.
