Evie's first photo shoots


Evie's Photo Shoots
Many of our friends have had newborn photo shoots with their babies.  I wanted so much for Evie to have a tiny baby photo shoot as well, but she was in the NICU, and then had an oxygen tube in her nose for the first 5 months of her life.  Now she is getting bigger by the day, so I felt like we needed to get photos done!

Evie's Uncle Dave was visiting and had his fancy camera, so we had some fun with posing her.  Here is a sample of those pictures:


I like this green stuff they call grass. 

This is so fun!

Mommy! You have sweet potato on your shirt!

You're so funny, Mommy!




More photos to come from Uncle Dave!  Pay no attention to my finger at the bottom of the picture.

Our friend Alice does photography on the side, and was nice enough to spend her afternoon with us.  I love how they came out.  Here is a sample of those!  She has an awesome photography blog, if you want to check out more of her work at https://duckie1023.wordpress.com/. 

Looks contemplative...really going for sucking on Mommy's hand

She allowed me to keep the headband on her for the whole time!

My favorite.

New banner photo?

Sleeping beauty...in the middle of the photo shoot.

Making the most out of nap time

She kept her eyes closed for most of the outside shots!

What's up, guys?

Comb over. 

What's so funny?

Too many kisses, Mommy!


Thank you to my expert photographers!!  You made my wish come true!

  2. Cool! You might want to link to her actual Instagram account (https://instagram.com/evietheextraordinary) instead of just the Instagram homepage.

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): https://www.barnesandnoble.com/.../the-polka.../1140115530 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
