31 for 21: What About Everyone Else?


Well, I've done plenty of talking about how her immediate family feels about Hailey.  I've shared how much we adore her and admire her.  So, I asked family and friends what they love about Hailey or what makes them think of Hailey.

Here is what they have to say....

  • I love her squishy face, her smile and her determination!!!! Or is that stubbornness (one thing that has nothing to do with DS) ;) 
  • Her smile.  No other child in the family has that smile (and it doesn't take much to get one out of her :-)  Some how her whole face goes into that smile! 
  • I don't know how to describe it, but her shy look.  I love it when she turns her head to the side and looks at you like, "I didn't do it."
I'm thinking that look is a cross between these faces...


  • I adore watching my children interact with her.
  •  I have never been a fan of anything with hearts on it, but since Hailey was born, my eyes are attracted and drawn to heart things, such as clothing, toys, linens, etc.  She is such a strong little girl!!
  • I love how she smiles at everyone even she doesn't know them.  I love how sociable she is and how she draws attention to herself.  She is quite the comedian.
  •  I love her many funny faces.
  • I love that she is fearless and likes to explore.  At the same time, she seeks peace and doesn't like anger.
  •  I love her smile and her personality.
  • One of my nieces thinks she is cute and funny.
  •  She is full of life, fun and energy.  She always has a sweet, but mischievous grin on her face to where she makes her little nose wrinkle.
  • Hailey loves being in the middle of the kids playing.  She has fun and makes the most of every day.
 So you see...her dad, brothers and I aren't the only ones that absolutely adore this little girl!

  1. What a great idea. This is something you can show her one day when she is older and not feeling so self confident. Hold onto this treasure.

    1. I was nervous about having none of our family respond or what they would say. I'm happy with how it turned out.

  3. I agree, what a great idea for a post!! I think we help people around us to realize what a joy (and how "normal") kids with down syndrome are. She is just so so so flippin' cute. She reminds me of Elina with that side look and her clear sense of style.
