#Project365 – week 14 

Day 89 

On Sunday we finally saw the sung or the first time in ages. So we put on our wellies and went for play at the park p, bumping into some friends on the way. The kids had great fun.

Day 90  

 We got invited back to Brewers Fayre at Old Brickworks. So I invited my mum along. Sadly the boys were still at school and hadn’t broke up yet. It was just Me, Grandma, E and Baby. As you can tell we had fun 🙂 

Day 91 

The hubby lovely treated me to a rather big breakfast in bed! It wasn’t even my birthday or Mother’s Day. It was just because he loves me.

Day 92 

The hubby was sulking a little because he tired to April fools me but I didn’t fall for it. What can I say I’m use to him being a fool so I wasn’t going to fall for it.  

Day 93 

It was another beautiful day and I spotted some daisies growing in the field next to the park. I hade to get a snap of them because I love daisies ❤️. They always make me think of my childhood and long summer days sitting in the garden making daisy chains. 

Day 94 

 I decided to get in the Easter mood for my #snaphappybritmums photo. The prompt was “hat”. So I thought a selfie wearing Baby’s rabbit hat would be prefect. 

Day 95 

 Another selfie I know but it’s not often me and the hubby manage to get a snap together. And I have to say I really love this picture. 

So there’s my week in pictures. 

I hope you will let me know what you think in the comments.

#BWphotoproject, #MySundayPhoto 29/3/15

I saw this tree when I was out with the children. I found it fascinating and had to take a quick snap.

I knew the instant I saw the tree it would look amazing when I tried some different colour effects on it

I loved the way all the branches hung and how the tree trunk bent and twisted.

I thought it looked amazing, but I was really surprised how dark the sky went with the black and white effect. It made is look very eerie but still really  beautiful. 

This is why this is my #BWphotoproject and #MySundayPhoto.

#Project365 – Week 13

We haven’t done very much this week as I haven’t been at my best and now the kids are ill too. But here’s my week 13. 

Day 81

On Sunday we went to the Sunshine and Smiles World Down syndrome celebration. It was a great day and they had Singing Hands perform which was amazing too. I must say I was rather star struck when they tried talking to me and Baby and just didn’t know what to say. 

Day 82

My kids completely adore Lego and where so happy that these cane in the post while they were at school. 

Day 83

On Tuesday while I snapped this pretty cool picture of the clouds and the way the sun was shine and light them all up. I though it was beautiful. The amazing little things you see while on the school run. 

Day 84

I went into to have all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed and while I was waiting to go down the theatre I thought I would share my sexy hospital stockings. 

Day 85

They said I should expect some swelling and bruising but I was shocked at how much my face has swelled up. They did explain that they had complications removing my bottom 2 wisdom teeth and had to actually chip away some of my jaw bone. It’s safe to say I look like a character from a beano comic. 

Day 86

We received this beautiful personalised apron for Baby from Isabella Peters in honour of World Down Syndrome week. I was so blown away when she offered to send Baby something and I must say it’s absolutely gorgeous and I am completely in love. 

Day 87

Last night I was tagged in a #widn post on Instagram. So I thought I would share my diet of the week. Soup! My face is really swollen and sore so eating isn’t easy, then add the stitches and I have no plans to be trying to chew anything for a while yet.

Day 88

The boys decided to build a Den/fort in their bedroom. I must say I’m rather impressed as they have done it all on their own. I had told them, if their really well behaved they can leave it up and both sleep inside it tonight.

So there you go that’s my week in pictures.  

How’s your week been?

#WickedWednesday #6

This week has been a week full of sulky faces.

 

This was Baby on Saturday because mummy said no to giving her my phone. 

As I stated on my Instagram picture. People who say people with Down syndrome are always happy need to just take a look at this picture. It’s a perfect example of Baby throw an tantrum because she isn’t getting her own way.

Don’t worry I was nice enough to take more pictures of this tantrum (to save for her 18th birthday cake!). So you could see what I have to put up with from my 17 month old. 

Can you say early terrible two’s? 

As you can see she went on to try the “I’ll look really cute while I cry” tactic, to see if I would give her my phone.

  That did work so she went back to tantrum mode.

  She nearly broke me with the “Why mummy?” Look but I stood firm and I didn’t give her my phone. So….. 

  ….she decided to go for my iPad instead.

  The tears quickly dried up and she was back to smiley Baby again. 

Just goes shows, how much of a little madam she can be. 

She wasn’t the only little madam this week though. E has been join her in the sulky tantrum stakes although her wasn’t nearly as cute but was rather funny. 

  

Here is a sulky E because I told here I didn’t know where she put her new Lego magazine. I know I’m such a terrible mummy for not knowing where she left it last. 

I did find it 5 minutes after this picture hidden in the sock basket and when I told E her reply was “Your silly mummy, the socks wanted to read too!”

So there’s my #WickedWednesday which has been full of sulky, tantruming girls. Thankfully my boys have been good ish.

#BWphotoproject – Hearts

 

I was playing with photos and having my beautiful baby posing for a great snap that I could use for World Down Syndrome Day.

I think this photo is great because it doesn’t just raise awareness for Down syndrome but also heart awareness and that no matter what she is always be in my heart. 

We were really lucky that the 2 holes is baby’s heart at birth closed on there own as she got older and she was discharged from her heart specialist at 8 week old. 

Some parents aren’t as lucky as us and I want them to to they ar always in my thoughts.

#Project365 – Week 12

This week is an exciting week because it has Mother’s Day, My 1st Blogiversary and World Down Syndrome Day. 

It’s a very busy and full of fun week.

Day 74 

 

My Hubby and kids made me a special Mother’s Day breakfast. I must say it brought a smile to my face 😀 I am a very lucky mummy!

Day 75  

 

We had a poorly E who was on Monday, high temp, runny nose and feeling sorry for ourselves. Luckily calpol and mummy cuddles where prescribe with docmcstuffins on sky planner. She was fine and back to school the next day.

Day 76 

 

Tuesday was my first Blogiversary and I have some lovely pictures in my post all about it here. I hadn’t realised that Monday had been the start of Down syndrome awareness week. So I made baby a little poser (she was a natural!) and made this picture. I must say I’m pretty proud of both her and the picture.

Day 77 



E was a really brave girl when she went for her preschool booster. She didn’t even cry. she did get a little upset on second injection, but it was nothing a super mummy cuddle couldn’t fix. Super proud mummy at how much a trooper she is 🙂 

Day 78

Baby got her first pair of Piedro boots from her Orthotics doctor. She was given these and some splints because has a lot of movement in her ankles (due to hypotonia) these boots and ankle will give her the extra support she will need to stand and eventually walk. They are already working wonders and I think there beautiful.

Day 79

 

I almost forgot to take a picture on Friday and I only remember when I was in middle of dying my hair. So I had to settle for this lovely hair dye selfie. 

I know it’s so flattering lol 


Day 80



Today 21st March and it is World Down Syndrome Day! 

This is our #lotsofsocks for #worlddownsyndromeday #WDSD2015 #WDSD15 #downsyndrome #trisomy21 #teamT21 #21stmarch 

Today is world down syndrome day because people who are born with the genetic condition Down syndrome have 3 copies of the 21st chromosomes and the 21st of March is the 21st of the 3rd month.

We ask you to wear lots of colourful socks to show that everyone may be different but we as still the same. Plus if you add the heels of sock together but turn one sock upside down it makes and X which is the shape of a chromosome. 



💛💙💛💙💛💙Happy WDSD everyone💛💙💛💙💛💙

So there you go that my week in pictures 🙂 

I hope you have had a great week and I can’t wait to see your photos.
