Full blown toddler mode for Emmy lately. It’s like she knows I’m very slow lately and can’t keep up and she can get away with climbing, throwing and making messes much more easily these days. It’s funny that when I see her scaling the couch I’m annoyed, nervous and proud. Those are good gross motor skills. I do however wish she responded well when I tell her no but instead she just tells me no right back 🙄. I guess this is life with a 2 year old. #toddlerlife#busytoddler#theluckyfew#grossmotor#stronggirl
STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING... Watch this video. It will make your day!!!
We love companies that support inclusion. Look at his reaction! Comment the emoji that comes to mind watching this video! 💛💙 #laurasgreetings
You can usually find her with a doll in her hands these days. She’s mostly very sweet to her dolls but if you scroll you will see that’s not always the case 😬😂. I really think she will be the sweetest big sister. It’s pretty much who she is! I can’t wait to see her reaction to this little guy! #bigsister#littlebrother#theluckyfew#thatsmile

Hannah and Laura have developed a friendship that will last a lifetime. During a recent interview, Laura just wanted to sit by Hannah and ended up playing with her hair 😂 @hannahleebee15
When all the greeting cards are sold and there are no more paintings to be drawn, this friendship will never change 💙 #laurasgreetings
This man with autism has world-class talent in art. We have a hard time remembering what we ate for breakfast... not a chance in remembering a city like he does! 😂
Many individuals experiencing autism or similar have hyper extreme capabilities, almost superhuman like! Like this video if you think this man's drawings shows DISABILITY IS NOT INABILITY 💙
We 💙 seeing individuals experiencing disabilities, like Chris, share their talents with the world! Would you buy his tacos?
We are proud to share Laura's Greetings cards, check out our latest Holiday cards for Christmas and winter 💙💛
Have you ever worried about your child’s future? Wondered who would step in to love and care for him or her if you were no longer able to do so? Are you overwhelmed trying to keep track of all the details swirling around inside your head — doctors, therapies, medications, IEPs, government benefits? Do you long for your child to succeed in school, find a job that fits their abilities, and build meaningful social connections? Are you concerned that you might not be able to afford all of the resources to help your child truly thrive? Does planning for the future feel impossible because you barely have time to plan for today?
Most parents of children with special needs struggle with these same questions.
You’re not alone and we’re here to help.
Creating a Life Plan that includes a plan for today and a transition plan for the future helps you address many of these questions and feel at peace knowing your family is well planned for.

if you don’t already know, October is #dwarfismawarenessmonth & if you weren’t aware, I have dwarfism - obviously. I know it's hard to tell *sarcasm*
so I thought I'd participate this month and share a bit here and there about my thoughts, feelings, and opinions about it all - so let's go ~
I was born with the most common form of dwarfism, #achondroplasia and I’m going to be real here and say that having #dwarfism IS NOT JUST BEING SHORT 🤜🎤💥 *mic drop* It’s a #medical condition with its own complications and risks - head, neck, spine, airways/nasal passage, ears, etc. .
If I was ‘just short’ I’d be pretty damn pleased. Yes, I had #limblengthening (incase you haven’t heard that enough) but I’m still a small human and will use the excuse ‘yeah, I’m 16’ as long as I can just so I can pay a cheaper price or whatever BUT I’ll also be followed by doctors the rest of my life as well as any children I may have in the future
I have a 50% chance of passing on the #gene if I have a child with someone of ‘average’ stature and #tbh that scares me. It’s even more scary if I were to have a child with someone who also has achondroplasia/carries the gene because the risk would be higher and there’d be a chance the baby is born double dominant
“Do you want a child with achondroplasia?” is a question that I really hate being asked.
1. It makes feel like I’m seen as a separate species of some sort
2. Some women (& men) don’t like being asked about having children
3. If I have a child that’s anything like me I guarantee their sass would be far more than I could handle
That’s it for this week ☺️ If there’s any questions feel free to ask 💚
