Great Crayons for Beginners!

Last week, Logan's OT mentioned some crayons that write very brightly without pressing down hard. I looked and couldn't find them, but I came across some window crayons and I bought them for Devin (because he is obsessed with decorating!). They work great on the windows, but they also work great for Logan to color with. He doesn't have to press hard at all and he gets great colors from them! He also discovered that they write great on my table. I want to let Logan use them on the patio door too, but I haven't done it yet. I'm not sure if it is a good thing for him right now, to be encouraged to write on walls.

Where has October gone?

I can't believe I only posted three times this month!! And it was Down syndrome awareness month! Lately, I have been struggling with how to prioritize my time....and I guess blogging fell low on my list, but I am slowly getting more organized and feeling less frazzled. I just have too many things going at once right now. I am figuring it out though. I've found that I love photography, but struggle to decide how much time to devote to it. Time with my kids is number one, but there is always laundry to do, cleaning to attempt and groceries to shop for when I would rather play with my kids.
Down syndrome awareness month does mean a lot to fact, I have spent a lot of time this month planning for next October. Planning for the Fox Cities Down Syndrome Awareness Walk has kept me thinking about what is important for me and other families who love someone with Down syndrome.
Logan is doing fantastic this month! He is showing off new skills each week at gymnastics class, he is talking more each day, he is a little comedian who can make anyone laugh, he has started coming to me for hugs at random moments during the day, he loves to look at books, he loves cars, he hates bed time, he watches and signs along with his Signing Time DVDs, he loves to play with playdoh, he can draw lines and circles, he "runs" around the house with his brother and sister and he says hi to strangers at the store.
I can't wait for next month to find out what he will do next!

No Cavities!

Logan visited his new children's dentist today. He sat perfectly and let them look at all of his teeth. All looks great and we were told he has all of the teeth that a typical child would have right now. He will get his teeth cleaned 6 months from now! Go Logan!

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month!

We walked in the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin Down Syndrome Awareness Walk on September 27th. Thank you to all of our friends and family who participated in the walk and/or made pledges to Team Logan! We are so blessed to have friends and family who support us. I am already looking forward to next year and our 1st annual Fox Cities Down Syndrome Awareness Walk on October 2, 2010!
