Caterina Scorsone Honors Down Syndrome Awareness Month

Caterina Scorsone Shares Photos of Her Daughter In Honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month and in honor actress Caterina Scorsone went to her social media to share some pics of her adorable daughter Paloma Michaela.

The Grey’s Anatomy star is an advocate for Down Syndrome. Her 2-year-old daughter Paloma was born the chromosomal condition and the actress often uses her platform as a voice to educate the world on the condition.

The 36-year-old actress posted a series of photos via Instagram on Tuesday. Scorsone wrote that her hope is that the language of the condition changes and gushed about her daughter’s “beautiful” differences.

“October is Down syndrome awareness month. Here’s a little info,” Scorsone wrote. “1 in 700 babies is born with Down syndrome. Language is important. Parents don’t have a 1 in 700 ‘RISK’ of having a baby with Down syndrome.”

“Parents have a 1 in 700 CHANCE of having a baby with Down syndrome,” she continued. “Just like they have a 50 percent CHANCE of having a girl a 50 percent CHANCE of having a boy. (With some beautiful variations in there as well).”

The Grey’s actress concluded her post by reminding her listeners that it’s all in the language and to be kind when choosing the words you speak. “Differences are beautiful. Language changes how people think. Words are important.”

Caterina shared three photos of her sweet girl “Pippa” a nickname the actress often lovingly refers to her daughter as. In one of the shots, Paloma is a happy girl swinging on a swing set. In another picture the actress shared was a sister-sister moment between her eldest daughter Eliza, 6, helping her younger sister drink from her sippy cup.

This isn’t the first time the actress has voiced her support for Down Syndrome. Since welcoming her daughter in November 2016 the Canadian actress has been advocating for more public research funding for the chromosomal disorder.

She has also praised several brands including American Girl, Gerber, Anthropology and Tea Collection for incorporating children with Down Syndrome in their promotions, collections, and catalogs.

Caterina has referred to her daughter as a “blessing” and believes she was sent to her “to teach us how to love.”

Duggars Add a New Baby to the Family

The Duggar family of Counting On has added a new baby to the family. This is exciting news for the Duggars. The thing is you might not see this baby on the show. In Touch Weekly shared that Anna Duggar’s sister just had a baby. Considering that Anna and Josh aren’t on the show anymore, it is highly doubtful the baby will be on there. You never know who will show up at a wedding or event, though.

This is the 4th child for Priscilla, and her husband, David. He shared the news with fans on Instagram letting everyone know that the baby was here. David was really excited about the news. He said, “Destiny Faith Waller is here! She was born at 10:53am on October 2, 2018 Priscilla, Destiny and family are all doing well! We praise the Lord for a safe delivery with no complications! She weighs 8lbs 5oz and is 22.25 inches long.”

Anna Duggar has been really excited about this baby on the way as well. Back in April, she shared about it. Anna makes it pretty obvious that she loves her nieces and nephews. The entire Duggar family likes children considering how many they have. There always seems to be a new one on the way.

Priscilla and David have been sharing a lot of information on their blog about the new baby. It turns out that her other sister was visiting when the baby came. They shared the details.

“Priscilla looks up to her sisters so much. Esther has been an example and encouragement for Priscilla over the years. The Lord orchestrated the timing of Destiny’s birth to be precisely during the only night that Priscilla’s oldest sister Esther was visiting our home. She is on a short leave from mission work that she and her husband John do along with their eleven children in Zambia, Africa. Esther was able to visit along with two of her children.”

You never know who will announce that a baby is on the way next. With so many Duggar kids and all of their wives and husbands, babies are always coming for this family. It is such a blessing and they love having them around.

Do you think that Josh and Anna Duggar will be having another baby soon? Let us know in the comments section below, and don’t miss new episodes of Counting On when the show returns to TLC with new episodes. The finale just aired, but more should be coming an exact date has just not been shared yet.

Meghan King Edmonds and Jim Edmonds Jet off to Mexico Kids Free

Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan King Edmonds has built up the courage to leave her three children for some much-needed one on one time with retired baseball hubby Jim Edmonds, 48.

Meghan revealed this is the couple’s first getaway since welcoming their three kiddos Aspen, 23 months, and 4-month old twin boys Hayes and Hart. The reality star admitted in a blog post that she’s taking a vacation “because our marriage needs it.”

Family first

A post shared by Meghan King Edmonds (@meghankedmonds) on

The 34-year-old TV personality wrote an honest and candid post revealing, “we’ve become complacent in our lives and have taken each other for granted.” Meghan went on to reveal this is she and Jim’s first vacation since before their eldest child Aspen was born well over two years ago.  “When I think about it, it doesn’t seem like it’s been that long – we’ll always have more time to do what we want.  But life is short and we are seizing the moment!” Edmonds wrote.

Like a lot of marriages, the mom of three admits that her marriage has taken a back seat to raising her children and the foundation of her marriage is suffering.

Meghan continued, “Our marriage needs it. We’ve had three babies in under two years.  We’re building a house, we’ve sold and moved homes numerous times, we’ve quit jobs and started new ones. We are constant fixtures in our marriage that are often ignored and we need shining and buffing.  We need US back… and the sad part is that we never even realized “we” were missing.”

Meghan King Edmonds admitted she is “anxious” about leaving her three kids behind in California but is looking forward to a romantic vacation with just she and her hubby. “Most of all I’m looking forward to hanging out with my husband and not worrying about when the babies need to eat next or who has gas or why one hasn’t pooped.”

Edmonds realizes that not everyone is able to pick up and fly to Mexico for some R&R. She suggested a couple savvy options to her fans that can still benefit you and your spouse that desperately need some alone time but can’t afford a vacation. Meghan suggests, “a staycation at a local hotel or a very special date like a picnic in the park without cell phones.”

Edmonds ended her blog post by encouraging all the fellow mamas out there to “nourish yourself in whatever way you need. Whatever you can do, just do it, your marriage and former self will thank you a thousand times over.”

Jinger Duggar Vuolo, Jeremy Vuolo Take Daughter on Trip to Chicago

Jinger Duggar Vuolo and her husband Jeremy Vuolo just took their young daughter Felicity on a fun trip to Chicago. She is still pretty young, but they are already starting the family vacations. Considering that all of Jinger’s family lives pretty far away she should probably get used to traveling a lot. 

Felicity Vuolo is only two-months-old. Jinger started off sharing pictures at the airport before they were getting on their flight for the big trip. She also shared a photo from while they were on the plane that showed Jeremy kissing his little girl. It looks like he is really in love with his daughter. Jeremy seems to have taken to being a father really well.

Kisses from daddy.

A post shared by J I N G E R V U O L O (@jingervuolo) on

It appears that Felicity did pretty well on the plane. Jinger did share a photo holding her daughter and she was sound asleep. People get really upset over a screaming baby on the plane, so luckily this isn’t what was going on at least part of the time. If Felicity is a tough baby, then Jinger isn’t sharing about it with the fans. 

Hopefully, Jeremy and Jinger Vuolo have a great time while they are in Chicago. No word on what the couple is doing there, though. They did go to a Cubs game, which looked like a lot of fun. This is something most people who visit Chicago like to do. It does look like they took the trip on their own.

Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo seem to be doing great. The couple has one little girl and are enjoying being married. They live in Laredo, Texas where Jeremy is going to school. Jinger seems to just be really enjoying being a mom. So far, they only have one child, but seeing that she is a Duggar, there will probably be more on the way soon. There is always news that a Duggar has a baby on the way.

Luckily TLC still films Jinger Duggar Vuolo and lets the fans keep up with her. Since she moved to Texas, that can’t be near as simple as it was before, but the fans would be really upset if they didn’t get to see her new married life. 

Do you think that Jeremy and Jinger Vuolo will ever move back to Arkansas so they don’t need to travel to see her family? Let us know in the comments below, and make sure that you don’t miss the new episodes of Counting On when they air on Monday nights on TLC.
