Hello all!

I've begun this blog as a way of connecting with other mothers. I recently became the first time mommy to little Jaxson Tyler (or Apple Jax, as i prefer) who was diagnosed with trisomy 21 two days after birth.

i plan on posting a more detailed post regarding the pregnancy and emotions that came along with the diagnosis and hope to find plenty of awesome people to connect with!

It feels like a few months ago i was just 21 and virtually careless, it blows my mind when i think about the shift in character i have endured over the past nine months.

anyway, be on the look out for a more detailed introduction! coming soon. :]

Apple Jax! he normally has a feeding tube, but he yanked it out. better this way anyway.


  1. Just stumbled upon your blog and commend you for writing about everything! Blogging can be a great outlet and way to meet people. Some blogs you should check out (if you haven't already) are:
    Early Mama
    Michelle writes about other young moms and has a wealth of inspiring posts!
    Kelle Hampton
    Kelle Hampton wrote "Bloom" about having a daughter with Down Syndome
    And here's my blog if you are curious, I don't post as often anymore, but I wrote about being a young mom and also some fun style posts too. ;)

    1. Thank you! :]

      I have read Kelle Hamptoms blog (and book, oh how I cried), but thank you for Early Mama... and yours of course! I followed you both. :D
