Addy's Arsenal

Team Years: 3

Welcome to our 2019 DSA of DE Buddy Walk® team fundraising page!  We are walking to show our support for our child and more than 400,000 other individuals with Down syndrome in the U.S. Every dollar we raise brings us one step closer to ensuring that our child and every individual will have the opportunity to reach their potential.

Addison is now three years old and just started Preschool! She loves everything about it so far, and the progress we have seen in the few short months she's been attending is incredible. This event is an amazing day for our family & friends. We hope to see you there!

Our fundraising efforts will support local programs and services, as well as advocacy and public awareness initiatives that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome in our community.

Make your tax-deductible donation today and take the first step toward helping us achieve our goal. Thank you for your support!

Our Funds Raised: $85.00
My goal: $2,000.00 4%

Our little baby doesn’t feel so much like a baby anymore. Almost 6 teeth, cruising and climbing on anything she can find, and learning to take toys back from her big sister! 😂

It’s the sparkle in her eyes, her uncontainable excitement, her ability to see greatness in the simplest things. Her spirit is everything.

What’s worse than being sick? Being sick and having kids. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m exhausted but at least I have this adorable face to look at all day.

Do you ever have those moments where you look at your child and think, “wow, you drive me absolutely crazy, but your the cutest thing I’ve ever laid my eyes on”? Addy drove herself to the bus stop today. I will carry that thing back home every day to see that happiness and excitement on her face.

This is the face of baby jail + an ear infection. Charlotte had me so worried with a 104.3 degree fever. Thankfully 48 hours of cuddles, and many doses of amoxicillin and Advil has her feeling slightly better.

This girl right here never ceases to amaze me. I went to her school yesterday for a PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) training. Addy’s speech therapist is amazed at how quickly she is learning and how willing she is to learn! 
It just made my heart so proud. She is learning to communicate!! And she’s SO excited about it. I am so thankful. This is life changing for her.

This probably looks like nothing to most, but to me, this is EVERYTHING. Last night was the first time I’ve ever seen Addison play with someone.

Addy is a homebody and feels best in her own environment. This was the first time her cousin came over and Addy was ECSTATIC!! They played together all night long. Evy is the absolute sweetest to her. She is so understanding and patient. It just melts my heart watching them. I’m so thankful Addy has her.

2018 has been an amazing year! We welcomed Charlotte in our lives, Addison started preschool, hubby changed jobs, we all made new friends, and we even gained a niece and nephew! I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store for us. I’m predicting amazing things to come. 🥰

Addison has only been going to school for a little over a week and I already see changes. I’m so excited for her and love watching her come home learning new things!

Letting go of control has been tough this week. I didn’t think I’d get so sad watching Addison leave. But the thing that kept me going and smiling was this little girl. This marks the beginning of my precious alone time with Charlotte. I can’t wait to make so many memories with this beautiful, strong, independent, almost 8 month old.
