About last night ❤️✨ Our little munchkin is going in for a minor surgery, and having tubes put into her ears in just 2 days. A few months ago at her ENT appointment we found out she had some fluid in her ears, which is pretty common with kiddos with DS (though thankfully she’s never had an ear infection). We’ve never noticed her not being able to hear, but more than likely things are not coming through as clear as they should be, which obviously can affect her speech. Even though I know this is considered pretty routine and an outpatient procedure, I can’t help but feel a little nervous about it. And also that I won’t be there when she gets it done. But I’m so glad @will3ye will be, he’s so much better about things like this. I feel like I’d get too emotional. But it’ll be interesting to see if her “babble” actually starts sounding like words?! 🙂 Made it to my 38-week checkup today. This has been the most torturous week and a half! If baby boy stays in until his due date I’ll be pretty impressed, as he feels like he’s gonna fall out at any moment! Contractions are getting more intense, but are still very far apart. I’ve had the worse emotional ups/downs too. Because I never made it to these last stages of pregnancy with Wynter all of this feels like it’s hitting me like a ton of bricks. And almost like I’m going through it for the first time again. Time is going by so slowly, but taking full advantage to be with Wynter as much as possible. She isn’t going to be an only child for much longer. ❤️ #papaandwynter #WynterKaori

(And the drool. She’s upset because I wouldn’t let her chew on the laptop cord. 😐) Yup you and me both kiddo. Today started out well enough. We took a nap, we had a bath, then I decide to go for a walk with the munchkin in her buggy, and.....I can’t find my keys! I start hunting around the house, looking in the clothes I wore the day before, my bag, where I thought I put them, etc., Wynter starts whining and getting upset, I step on one of her toys, I set off the car alarm, it was just a total 💩 show! So we ended up staying inside all day, and trying to make the best of it. Just another day to add to the books I guess. 🙃 #livinthelife #feelingallthefeels #WynterKaori

Another @theportraitproject17 in the books for this little one! We started doing these photo sessions with the sweet and talented @prigragg last year when Wynter was only 3 months old. Being able to be apart of something greater and to give back is what it’s all about. We love being apart of this project and are grateful for the opportunity. Thank you so much @prigragg! Can’t wait til next year! ❤️(Then maybe Wynter will be more accustomed to the flash of the camera. Haha! 😉😁) #WynterKaori

Today at the check-out at Target, as I was unloading my things onto the conveyer belt, the cashier asked, “Awe how’s she doing?” (referring to Wynter) I said, “Oh she’s doing fine.” Thinking she was just making small talk. Then she asks, “How’s her speech coming along?” I was a bit thrown off by the question, but as the cashier kept talking I realized she knew Wynter has Down Syndrome. She goes on to tell me she has a niece who’s 3 and also has DS, and how much she adores her and loves to spoil her. It was only the second time (for me) that someone knew, or I guess I should say, actually acknowledged that Wynter has Down Syndrome, and it kinda threw me for a loop! I have no idea if it’s obvious to others that she does (and it truly does not matter to me either way), as it’s not something that comes up regularly in our every day lives. Most of the time, when we’re out people just smile and try to get her to say “hi, or to smile back at them”. That and they refer to her as a boy. 🙄 (honestly I’m so use to it, it doesn’t bother me anymore) And strangely the more I chatted with this woman, the more “normal” the conversation became and was totally comfortable talking to her about Wynter. (She also acknowledged I was a brave woman to have another baby so close to the first. Haha! 😆 I told her, it wasn’t planned. 😁😉) I mean, I’m sure it helped that she was pleasant and cheerful (and who knows maybe she was just doing her job), but I appreciated the casual conversation and it not being a “big deal”, or a “I’m so sorry, it must be so tough” conversation about Wynter having Down Syndrome. ❤️ And in other news....somehow this silly munchkin got herself twisted in the cart and got stuck backwards. She screamed so loud, two ladies came to our rescue to help. It was quite the scene. 🤦🏽‍♀️😬 #WynterKaori #mamaandwynter
