The best and most handsome date for the @GLSEN#RespectAwards! Now - more than ever - the work they do to create safe spaces in schools for LGBT youth and their allies is vital! I'm a longtime supporter and can't thank them enough for all they do! So happy we could be there! Thank you to @OppoSuits for our matching outfits! My shoes by @CreativeRecreation.

Messy bun, getting sh*t done. Basically my motto these days. Who’s with me? 🙋🏼👊🏻
There’s a new blog post on happygreylucky.com with my top 5 tips for busy moms. Because I’m all about feeling great about my hair (hair trumps makeup for me for sure) and I’ve learned a few things over the years on how to make hair look good without investing a lot of time. Because if there’s one thing moms with young kids don’t have, it’s a whole lot of time for getting ready in the morning. Link in my bio if you’re looking for some time-saving tips!

I think we shall now have Flick dance party Friday’s! I’ll post her dancing every Friday!
One question I get A LOT and several for the Q and A for the #downsyndromeawarenessmonth is when did she start walking? First let me preface this by saying children with Down syndrome begin walking on the average of 2-2.5 years and many later than that. I’ll also say forcing the issue of walking is very bad as well. Your child will not use the correct muscles to walk well and it can be detrimental. Their stance should not be wide and after practicing walking for a short amount of time, they should have better balance. So Felicity was cruising at 13 months and we thought any day now! Then 16, 17, and 18 months came and there were no steps. So when she was 18 months she got smo’s. Two weeks later, she took those first steps! 18 months is when she walked for the first time and now she’s running and almost jumping. Her smo’s gave her stability and confidence. She can walk perfectly without them, but it’s super important to continue to use the smo’s, even after they begin walking because it helps with muscle memory. So once she doesn’t need them anymore, she will continue to walk correctly and because she does wear them everyday, we are looking at stepping down to inserts in the next six months. Yes, she does wear the same shoes everyday because they are super supportive and fit over her braces!
