Day 14: Questions, Questions, Questions!

I'm off to an all-day work conference today, so no time to post much.  But I've noticed a few people opening their blogs up to questions about Down syndrome/our life/whatever from people this month, and I think it's a pretty great idea so I'm going to steal it right now.  It could be great, or it could be an embarrassing moment of silence a colossal failure.

By the way, I do accept Anonymous comments on my blog, so feel free to hide behind  utilize this feature and don't make me look bad hold back and ask, ask, ask away!

Thank you, my friend, for starting me out laughing today! Out loud, at that!
My main question for you at this time isn't actually Ds related but I hope you'll take it since you are um, opening the floor up and all:
how did you grow Sammi's hair so gorgeously? Were you ever tempted to cut it? Did she resist the clips and holders and stuff?
I"m really trying to grow Moxie's hair out into "A Samantha" but it's so hard (to struggle with her to pin it out of her eyes) that I am sometimes tempted to give up.

ps. love the photo of you both

I have a question I was going to email you, but I'll ask on your blog because I'm SURE I'm not the only one!

LOVED the video of Sammi reading. So what are the things you did with her early on to help her get to be a good Kindergarten reader? Help those of us with the little babies!

Yes, reading questions please. Also, when did Sammi start talking and did you start sight words (etc) before she started talking? I think I've waited too long, %^&*( linear thinking. I think we're just going to navigate around the speech & dive in visually. Your experiences?

I have a nephew with DS who will turn two in January. Your daughter reading brought tears to my eyes! I too am interested in what you did to to help her achieve this.

Alicia said...

have you thought on having another daughter/son ??? :)

well, i had to ask since we just added a little girl to our family!

hugs my friend!

Great comments! Keep them coming! Btw, I'll be answering them in Monday's post.

Would you mind sharing a few of your most frustrating moments related to Raising a little one with Down Syndrome? Have you found youve mellowed with time or become more sensitive?

Becca I thought about this all day, and I'd like to ask you to (re?) post a little about Sammi's early years - some history and baby photos and things so we can all see if she's always been as beautiful as she is today (I feel I may know the answer already :))

Anna Theurer said...

Wow, these are great questions. I am with Meriah on how Sammi got the most beautiful locks :) and with everyone else on the reading!
