3 (21) Down Syndrome: Blog Hop!Posted: July 22, 2013
This blog hop is a community project of Down syndrome Blogs and the T21 Alliance. The code is set up so that everyone can participate by adding their link to their post – and host if they want, by adding the code to their own post! So, just follow the instructions through the linky tool (below).
People are people, are people, are people. Period. No subhuman animals, no superhuman angels. No special powers, no fundamental flaws.
No matter their genetics, all people are just trying to make their way in the world. That means all of us feel anger, happiness, rage, humor, empathy, ambivalence, frustration, despair, joy, wonder and every single other emotion that you could imagine. That means all of us should get to yell, cheer, whine, laugh, joke, and cry, free from judgement or adoration based on our genetic makeup.
Again. People are people, are people, are people.
Wear your baby! Babywearing provides something called proprioceptive feedback, which helps all babies orient the relative locations of their body parts. (This link has a good explanation.) That’s why your baby is always hitting himself in the face in while trying to suck his thumb; he hasn’t figured out how to assess the relative location of fist versus head. Same thing the cops are testing during a field sobriety test with the ol’ “close your eyes and touch your nose” bit. Huh. Yet another way that children and drunk people are alike. But I digress. Babywearing. Check it out.

(Now here, my technical ability fails me, I can’t figure out how to make all the hop participants show up. So go here to read more!)
