31 for 21, day 4

It's all ready 5:30 and I'm just getting around to posting today.
It was my turn for Doctor appts., one of which I learned I am due for the annual, DREADED colonoscopy. (for ongoing ulcerative colitis, for those who are new to this blog.)
 Guess that's what I get for being good and going to follow up appointments.

I'm committed to posting each day for the 31 for 21, so I'll treat you to some baby photos.
Can't go wrong with those now, can we??!
Then, tomorrow, I'll hit the art room again.
(much better than doctor appointments.)

Trisomy 21, otherwise known as Down Syndrome, was found to be the triplication of the 21st chromosome in 1959. Not really that long ago, was it?

This is my take on "overexpression"

more tomorrow!

  4. Love the baby photos. That defines over expression for sure! Can't wait to see your latest art!

  5. OMG! What a treat!!!! Love these pics, Lynn, and I hope you're having a wonderful day in your studio surrounded by tons of art. I hope you enjoy dinner with paint smudges on your clothes!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  6. WHAT??!! This is the child who won't exercise? How could that be?! She's so freakin' sweet...and cute! LOL. Stubborn? Not that sweet smiling face. NOT NOT NOT

  7. Such a happy baby! Love these photos.

  8. Hi Lynn! Being fairly new to your blog, I did not know that you battle ulceration colitis until reading this post. I too battled it for many years in my twenties and thirties (in and out of hospital) and then at age 39 I had to have emergency surgery. (at that point they changed my diagnosis to Crohns disease. To this day, I'm still not sure what disease I really had. But miraculously after having surgery (removing my large intestine), I've had zero problems and no disease symptoms at all for the past 16 years!!! Haven't even been on any medications since surgery, which they say is a miracle in itself. I tell you all of this, to give you hope and to let you know that I feel for you and the pain etc.. that I know you must go through with ulcerative colitis. I've been there and understand so well.

    Hope your tests went well.
