Being 12 is hard! Having Down Syndrome and being 12 is like riding the roller coasters blindfolded and backwards, wanting to get off but everyone around you speaks a different language. No one understands why you're flipping out, they're having a blast. The people and places we can go to just be ourselves without judgment feel like a safe harbor in the storm these days. It was so nice to stop and celebrate all the wonderful things about DS and be loved in the hard stuff too. #downsyndromeawareness #buddywalk #downsyndromemom #stepupfordownsyndrome #im12

👉🏼This photo on the left was me at 18 years old. I remember drinking this pitcher of water and thinking I was so healthy because I had chosen water over soda. Truth is, it was a healthier choice but I was so clueless about HOW to get healthy. I was studying missions at #ywamsalem and wanted so badly to lose weight and feel better about myself because for years I’d been gaining weight, partying and losing confidence. . 📅4 years after this picture was taken I had my first child and made the choice to become the best ME possible - for her👧🏼 . I began walking every day, making healthier food choices and with the help of a lil at-home workout program I lost over 50 lbs in less than a year and felt incredible af👊🏼 . Now this picture on the right was taken today. A total of 14 years later than the previous pic (plus a total of 3 kids now) and all I can really say is dang girl, YOU ARE WORTH SO MUCH MORE than you realize! Don’t hate on yourself if your body isn’t where you want it. 🧘🏻‍♀️Make small changes ~ baby steps, and over time WHEN you stick with it and trust the process • You WILL see results! . I’m still working on being a better me for my husband, my kids, and MYSELF, cause I AM worth it🙌🏻 . If you’re feeling STUCK or need a lil help getting started, let me travel this road WITH YOU👯‍♀️ . ✨Just message me or leave an emoji👇🏼I can’t wait to become life-long fit friends💪🏼 . #momof3 #transformation #momswholift #girlswholift #montana #downsyndromemom #healthylifestyle #gettingfit #saturday #goodvibes #coronaandlime #oregoncoast #oregon #mermaidatheart #50lbsdown
Don’t let that grin fool you. It has been a rough 24 hours. Between Wesley coughing on secretions every 15 minutes while he’s asleep and waking him up, his gtube leaking, and his irritability from pain and being tired, it’s a PAR-TAY over here! . . . #raisingwesley #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndrome #downsyndromelove #upsyndrome #theluckyfew #trisomy21 #joyinthelittlethings #downsyndromemom #homiewithanextrachromie #nothingdownabouthim #celebratethelittlethings #tubiebaby #o2crew #wesleystevenpost #iamable #tonsillectomy #adenoidectomy #t21 #t21love #airwayevaluation
The moment you realize you need to start locking the baby gate. 😅 #warriorprincess #smartypants #proudbaby 💪🏾👸🏽
Saturday sweat! Dirty 30 extreme done. I know I am one of those crazy people who get up early on a Saturday to workout. It’s not that I am obsessed with losing weight or anything. I do it to feel good - physically and mentally. My head is clear after and I am able to tackle the day ahead. I will need all the help I can get today. You see we are off to the zoo this morning. And when you have a special needs child that is a ‘runner’ and has no fear and a husband that doesn’t do so well with crowds and deals with PTSD everyday - a simple outing can be stressful. All this added to my anxiety that has not been controlled lately - things start to add up.  With upping meds and a clear head after my workout, I say ‘Bring on the day - I can handle it’!!! #progressnotperfection #strongmom #autumncalabrese #21dfx #downsyndromemom #anxeity #bringontheday

Tonight has been a tough one for me.. I’m really trying to hold back the tears, what moms do for their kids... here it goes.. it’s a long one this has been on my mind for awhile.  Having a Child with Down Syndrome has been such an amazing blessing, I have been taught more from my 15 year old than I’ve ever done to teach him.. the love, patience, kindness, forgiveness. KAid loves everyone.. he wants to be included just like anyone, shoot he’s a teenager!! Tonight is Homecoming football for his Highschool, and all he has been talking about is going, and cheering on the team, yet he turns and just hugs me and cry’s on my shoulder. I hug him back, and look at him and sign to him, “ what’s wrong kaid?” And he signs back to me “ friends”. This literally took a piece of my heart when he said this... everyone needs friends, regardless of a special need, we ALL need friends, a friend  who will listen, let you be silly, laugh at you and with you, pick you up when your down, remember things you have said that’s important for them, a friend who does not judge, but inspires you to be better. As I wipe my sons tears off his face, I tell him how he is a friend to me, and how much he means to me, he then turned his face and smiled like I have never seen him smile before.  I’m saying this because as a mom, I feel like I’m not giving him all the same experience’s I did in High school, homecoming, the games and dances, the whole social aspect of being 15.. I can’t help but just hurt a little as I see how much he wants a friend, a buddy. For now he has us and we have him, and together we could not be more happy.  #downsyndromemom #kaidshannon #shannonfamily #choosetoinclude #friends
Not sure she could get any closer without being on my lap. I’ll take it as a cuddle. #downsyndromemom #cuddles
We’ve spent a lot of the day in bed! Wesley definitely feels worse than he has the last two days, but it’s manageable! I’ve determined that the best toddler pain control is distraction! We sing ALOT of Baby Shark, we watch ALOT of Puppy Pals, and we do a lot of ridiculous dancing all just to make our boy smile. Adam asked me earlier “is parenting just doing a lot of silly things just to make your kids happy?” 🤣 . . . #raisingwesley #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndrome #downsyndromelove #upsyndrome #theluckyfew #trisomy21 #joyinthelittlethings #downsyndromemom #homiewithanextrachromie #nothingdownabouthim #celebratethelittlethings #tubiebaby #o2crew #wesleystevenpost #iamable #tonsillectomy #adenoidectomy #airwayevaluation #t21 #t21love
Happy Friday!! Yay!! Olivia came and hung out with me at work this Monday!  For a short period of time of course!  This girl loves listening to her phonics songs, that's how she learns!  She also loves to look at herself in the camera/mirror!! Have a wonderful weekend! . . #theluckyfew #downsyndromemom #earlyintervention #nothingdownaboutit #nothingdownaboutdownsyndrome
🚶🏽‍♀️ into the weekend like October is almost here which means me and moms birthday month 🎉  Shirt & Shorts - @kirakids . . . . . #weekendvibes#nothingdownaboutit#photooftheday#downsyndromemom#todlderlife#upsyndrome#theluckyfew#downsyndrome#specialneedsmom#downsyndromelove#changingthefaceofbeauty#t21#trisomy21#fridaymood#blackmomsblog#kirakids#toddlerstyle#babiesofig#melaninpoppin#sindromededown#lamodel#ocmodel#morealikethandifferent#girlmom#childhoodunplugged#downsyndromemodel#downrightperfect#downsyndromerocks#specialneedskids#disabilityawareness

🛑 I’m too tired 🛑 I don’t have enough time {money, energy, motivation, whatever} 🛑 My workout space isn’t big enough 🛑 The video isn’t working 🛑 I ate so.many.carbs for breakfast (thanks MOPS moms 🤣) 🛑 My kids are acting like crazy chickens instead of precious tiny humans  Blah blah blah.  These were just some of the excuses I could have used today to skip my workout. But this shirt was waiting for me {yes, in the clean laundry pile} and it reminded me that I am on this journey, doing the things I do, for a reason.  Not just to lose some weight. Not just to “feel better”. Certainly not to impress anyone or say look at me.  I’m doing the things like working out and eating *somewhat* healthy so I can be my best for those around me...so I can fulfill the true purposes God has for me...so HE can work in me to do more than I can ever ask or imagine.  The excuses are just that. Ditch them and get to it!  #remindmewhoiam . . . #adoptivemom #downsyndromemom #specialneedsmom #adoptallthebabies #momworkout #workoutathome #workoutwithkids #athomeworkout #easypeasy #liift4
Cardio extreme on this Friday. Bring on the sweat. Legs were still feeling yesterday workout but felt great to get the heart rate up. Bring on the weekend!!!! #21dfx #progressnotperfection #strongmom #autumncalabrese #downsyndromemom #happyfriday
Keyaan has hypothyroidism and has thyroid function tests which involves him having his bloods checked. He is on medication for this and the blood test also is a check to make sure he is on the right dosage. As you can see he is looking very pleased with himself as we didn't need to do a bloodtest today as the last one he did in May was fine and apparently its too early to do another! We travelled all that way for nothing really and saw the doctor for 5 minutes. Luckily we didn't have a long wait so I was more than happy to be in and out of that place fast! #downsyndromelife #downsyndromemom #downsyndromediaries #toddlersofinstagram #t21rocks #nothingdownaboutit
So excited to complete this weight tracker sheet this morning! One day left (full body HIIT tomorrow!)! 4 days a week, 30-40 minutes a day has been so good for me! 🤩  #strongereveryday
October may be Down Syndrome awareness month, but everyday is DS Appreciation month in our world.
