A post by Evie: From my point of view

Hi everyone!
Mommy said I could write a post, because she thinks it's funny that I find certain things so amusing to look at.   I want to share what I look at and why they are so wonderful. 

First, this amazing square on the ceiling. It's a geometric wonder. And everyone knows babies like black and white contrast, so I'm not sure why mommy thinks this is so funny. 

Then there's the view from the sofa while Daddy watches TV.  Why wouldn't I stare at this beautiful dark wood?  Daddy loves this bar table. Mommy at first didn't like it and tried to put it off to the side, but now she admits that Daddy is right and the table is useful for eating breakfast and watching me while she eats.  Look at that carpet with its geometric shapes!  Ikea makes works of art!

This is my view when I get my diaper changed, or Mommy changes my g-tube dressings every night.  I get very excited to see my dust bunny friends.  Fortunately for me, Mommy and Daddy don't have much time to clean the dust bunnies away.

Here's one of my absolute favorites.
Mommy doesn't like this picture above the sofa very much, but I love to stare at it.  It's such a nice white border around the frame. I haven't seen an ocean or lake yet, but it seems nice.  Daddy got it in his bachelor days, but Mommy would rather have something else that goes with her color scheme.  Everyone who comes over tends to say they like the picture though, so Mommy is stuck with it. I am very happy about this. 

Another thing that makes me happy is Jacques the Peacock. Auntie Anissa sent  it to me, and I love to stare at Jacques. 

As usual, I am hugging Sophie the Giraffe. She goes wherever I go!  Daddy gives her a bath every night, but water got inside and she lost her squeaky voice. No matter, I have found my voice and like to say all sorts of things for me and Sophie!

Thank you for taking this tour of "Evie's wonderful views!"

It's Official! The Polka-Dotted Penguin book has launched!

It's official! My new children's book, "The Polka-Dotted Penguin" has launched today!  How fitting that my labor of love launches on Labor Day. The writing of the book and putting all the parts together took about a year. It was definitely a pandemic-worthy project.  I wrote this book because I wanted more books available for sharing with Evie's class for World Down Syndrome Day on 3-21 and for Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. I'm happy to release my new book just in time for October! My hope is that this book will be used as a tool to start conversations with children about how to treat others who may look or act differently than they do. It's all about inclusion and celebrating differences.  This book is perfect for ages 4-9, or any ages who love penguins, or really anyone who loves Evie! Here's how to order: Barnes and Noble (Hardcover): Amazon (Hardcover, Paperback, Kindle) :

Jumping and Friendship Crafts with Evie

This Youtube video was at first made to showcase Evie's first real jump on a trampoline. Then it became a video with a message about making new friends, because I was just so impressed with how Qole gave Evie the space she needed to feel comfortable enough to say yes to getting on the trampoline.   And then as we were making a paper craft about friendship, and we were pulling out different pieces of color, I was struck with how it became a teaching moment for my daughter that people of all colors can hold hands and can look out for each other. May it be so. The world needs it now more than ever.

Then she came home and started busting out of the blankets, and woke herself up all the time. Her arms flailed and her legs kicked while she was sleeping, which of course woke her up. But then she got bigger and craftier, and I needed to fin
