We went to eat tonight in celebration of Joel’s birthday and our parents anniversary this weekend, and he pulled out this fake credit card he got in the mail. He keeps it in his wallet all the time. If you know Joel you know he rarely pulls out his own money and he only gives us this card when we are at an atm because he thinks it’ll give him money. Anyway, it was just so precious and sweet to me that he thought he was paying our dinner. 😊 #downwithjoel #chromosomallyenhanced #downsyndromeawareness #trisomy21 #theluckyfew #homiewithanextrachromie #extrachromosomeextracute #lifeisbetterwithyou

Happy Valentine’s Day and #downwithjoel WEDNESDAY! Here’s my blog post for today. Read about my thoughts on ableism.  Link in bio. Ableism kills dreams, opportunities, acceptance, and kills literally ❌❌ #inclusionevolution #ableismawareness #ableism #disabilities #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndromelove #nothingdownaboutit #siblingblog #stellayoung #asIam #19papercranes #zachanner #inspirationporn #allabilities
Hope everyone had a great Monday! Joel is off of school all week because of Mardi Gras and is in need of ideas to keep him busy. What should he do? #downwithjoel #downlikeaboss #nothingdownaboutit #homiewithanextrachromie #downsyndromerocks #theluckyfew
A night to shine prom on Friday night was so awesome. Joel had the best time. #thankstimtebow #downwithjoel #homiewithanextrachromie #nothingdownaboutit #anighttoshineprom #specialneeds #downsyndromerocks #theluckyfew
So I’m at an inclusion conference in Denver and I’m learning so much and I have to admit, these slides opened my eyes about what inclusion really means.... #inclusionmatters #disabilities #inclusionworks #peakinclusion2018
#tbt to Saturday when Joel played with LSU vs Tulane! He’s everything! 😍 #downwithjoel #downsyndromelife #specialolympics
Joel had fun with Miracle League today meeting some majestic horses 😁 #downwithjoel #downsyndromerocks #downsyndromelove
Joel had a fun time at @tulaneu 🤩 thanks to special Olympics and the Tulane athletes for giving the kiddos a great experience  #downwithjoel #downsyndromerocks #homiewithanextrachromie #specialolympics #basketball
It’s #downwithjoel Wednesday and our new blog post is up😊 have you gotten the response of “I’m sorry” after telling someone about a Down syndrome diagnosis... Well we ain’t sorry! 😅 #downsyndrome #downsyndromelove #downsyndromerocks #downsyndromeawarness #theluckyfew #homiewithanextrachromie #nothingdownaboutit #notsorry
Joel got a get well card form his classmates today 🙃 how sweet of them❤️ #downwithjoel #downsyndromelove #downsyndromeawarness #homiewithanextrachromie #extrachromosomeextracute
Forgot to post this pic from Joel’s last Basketball game with Miracle League. He had a really good game and made two 3 pointers. Sadly I can catch him on camera when he makes the shots 😬 #downwithjoel #downsyndrome #miracleleague #basketball #homiewithanextrachromie
Happy Friday everyone! 🎉 a little update on Joel: he’s doing fine but last night he had a huge tantrum because he wanted solid food. A sausage egg and cheese McGriddle to be exact. He cried, whined, and even hit. Looks like he had enough of this forced diet because of his wisdom tooth removal.  #downwithjoel #downsyndrome #homiewithanextrachromie #extrachromosomeextracute

It’s #downwithjoel WEDNESDAY!  So here’s our new post. Joel had a wisdom tooth taken out today and as you can see by this picture he was nervous! He continuously balled up his fist, grunted, and trembled a lot. I don’t Think I’ve ever seen him also nervous! But all is well now, he is at home being silly and playful😊 click the link in my bio for the full post on how we had a hard time with the doctor and how Joel reacted. #downwithjoel #downsyndrome #chromosomallyenhanced #extrachromosomeextracute #downlikeaboss #theluckyfew #upsideofdownsyndrome
