Mini Milestones: Walking Down Stairs

For Gwyneth, the larger milestones are spaced father apart than for typical kids, so we tend to notice and celebrate a lot of the mini milestones that happen in between. One of her latest accomplishments is walking down the staircase without any help.

Long awaited update

Well, hello again!

I've decided to reopen my blog to chronicle our life with Gwyneth once again. Life has certainly not stopped or slowed down since the last time I posted almost two years ago! Gwyneth just completed her first year of Kindergarten at the public school, but will be repeating that grade for the 2014-2015 school year. The experience of moving up from pre-K had some ups and some downs for her. I am now expecting each year to bring its own challenges.

For our family, the latest news is that little brother Ryker is not so little anymore (at age 3, he is starting to pass up 6 year old Gwyneth in weight and height) AND we will be adding one more child to the mix this fall! We are expecting a little girl at the end of September and both kids are very excited for their new baby sister.

Summer is moving quickly for us already. We spent a nice two week vacation visiting family and friends in Colorado and returned this week to our home in Georgia. As we get back into our routine, I'll be blogging about our busy therapy schedule, some summer homeschooling activities, and our activities with the Down syndrome community locally and online.
