On the Eve of Four.
Dear Ellie, Four years ago, Daddy and I were at the hospital.  We went on a Wednesday night, very late, after we went out for dinner and talked about meeting you on Thursday.  The doctors were going to give me some special medicine to help you hurry up and ...

Ellie (and of course, George) insisted on taking my photo rather than let me take theirs. I asked Ellie if she'd stand by the window. No. I asked if she would move from her spot on the couch so her face would be lit more evenly. No. But she did yell, "SELFIE!" and "CHEESE!

What I'm Reading/Watching/Making.
Here's some of what I'm reading this week.  Enjoy! Two Babies , a story about Down syndrome from Dave Hingsburger. These fun gallery walls on I Heart Faces. I just bought a new John Green book, "Looking for Alaska."  I'll let you know what I think! At the e...

Life at (Almost) Four.
If you ask Ellie her age, she'll tell you four, in anticipation of her birthday next week.  She has requested a present to open, with a box.  That's all the guidance she's given us on gifts, aside from a request for a puppy that will not be granted. Life wi...

We finally got our snow day! (And my readers in Chicago and Boston can laugh now.) But we got our 4-5 inches of snow which nicely shut down the entire DC metro area this morning, including all of the schools and most businesses. Ellie was up promptly at 4:45. (Matt and I were up, too.

Milestones and Down Syndrome.
Some milestones that come without much thought for typically developing kids are huge for kids with Down syndrome.  One of those milestones is the ability to ask and answer questions, a skill Ellie is continuing to work on.  And while she isn't quite on tar...

It's another snow day today, or rather, an ice day. The sidewalks looked a bit like a skating rink this morning, so Ellie and I are curled up inside. We are still in jammies, and Ellie has read "Going on a Bear Hunt," "Green Eggs and Ham," and "Sweet Dreams, Curious George" about eight billion ...

9/52.
I asked Ellie if we could go outside so I could take her picture. "No.  I take a selfie.  Inside." Nikon D3100, 50mm, f1.8, 1/200, ISO 800 Ellie (and of course, George) insisted on taking my photo rather than let me take theirs.  I asked Ellie if she'd stan...

Not a portrait.  Just a moment that makes me oh-so-happy.  Matt and Ellie improvising sledding on a cookie sheet on the tiny hill behind our house. Each week this year, I promised to take a portrait of Ellie.  I might take a real portrait tomorrow.  But thi...

A portrait of my daughter each week for a year. Week 7: Cold. So cold. When we woke up this morning, it was -8 degrees Fahrenheit with the windchill. We spent most of Valentine's Day indoors, aside from a quick Daddy/Daughter outing to get pastries and a Mommy/Daughter outing to visit the ...
