I can hardly believe it! This is my 200th post since I started blogging back in the summer of 2008. A lot has changed since then... Monkey Musings now has 100 followers (I LOVE when you leave comment love!), we added a new family member, Luke, last June, John Michael started preschool the first week of December, and my 13 year old is 3 inches taller than me. Craziness!
Thank you for making this ride more fun by reading and commenting. If you do have a child with Down syndrome, then I pray my words have somehow helped you, encouraged you, inspired you, or affirmed how awesome our kids with Ds are. If you don't have a child or loved one with Down syndrome, then I hope my words have helped to educate you. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read our blog, and especially to those who let me know they're out there. I count so many of my blogging, cyber buddies as friends. I hope to meet many of you at the NDSC Convention in San Antonio, TX in 2011. I can't wait! Until then, have a blessed Christmas and a grace-filled, peaceful New Year!
I've been married for 20 years to my wonderful husband, Doug. I'm a Catholic SAHM to 5 children. Our 4th child, John Michael, was born in November 2007, and has opened us up to the amazing world of Down syndrome. We are grateful to God for the blessings He's given us and the journey He's put us on. When I'm not spending time with my family, I sing with RSVP, an amazing vocal group, educate on Down syndrome, have my own health and wellness business, and blog about our life.
