Slice of Life

Today I realized my daughter is growing up. Living with Down syndrome has been a part of our lives for over 5 years now. Life moves at a different pace. I have come to love the pace at which we move with Emma. Today we moved forward. The pace quickening a bit. Emma has officially begun a potty training marathon. Today I learned Emma thinks of herself as a "big girl." I try to not baby her, but to hear her BELIEVE she is big makes my heart swell with love, admiration, and the realization that no limits should be place on children. Tonight as Emma prepared for bed, I no longer put a toddler to bed, but a big girl.


  1. She is a big girl! That must've been a wonderful moment!

  2. Hi there, I happened upon your blog from a google blog search. I have a daughter who just turned 5 in July that also has a little bit of something extra by way of her twenty-first pair.

  3. How wonderful that you can cherish this moment in Emma's development. Hope the marathon goes well.
