I got married in March 2013 and I was 11 weeks pregnant with my 4th (and last) child, my little Baby girl.
My husband Andy and I found ourselves on a unexpected yet amazing journey, which started when we found out our youngest daughter has Down syndrome, shortly after she was born and I want to share our journey with you.
We were both already use to dealing with hospital appointments and stays. As E was born with kidney reflux (vesicoureteral reflux) and a duplex kidney, which means she is at risk of getting frequent water infections (UTI’s). E had surgery in June 2014 to hopefully correct the reflux.
This blog is about everything we get up to as a family and how I manage to deal with day to day life with 4 kids and lots of hospital appointments.

T is my first son and open my eyes to motherhood. He is entering a attitude stage that I’m guessing is his preteen attitude kicking in.
