Welcome to my blog!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit! We hope to share with you our journey of raising a child with Achondroplasia, the most common type of dwarfism. If this is your first time here, please start by reading Caitlyn's Story. It will share the beginning of her life with you. Enjoy!

Hanna is Here!

Hanna arrived on Friday June 5th at 4:53 AM - after a total of 21 hours in labor and 3.5 of those hours were spent pushing. She weighed in at 8 lbs even and measured 19 3/4 inches. I had come down with a fever during labor, which indicated an infection, so our stay was extended to 48 hours and I was on antibiotics for my stay. Hanna had slight jaundice and her levels have been decreasing since we've been home.

We are adjusting well and enjoying every minute with our two girls. Caitlyn is totally in love with her little sister and has become quite the helper - as we knew that she would.

We can't wait for everyone to meet our new little princess!

Congratulations!!! Hanna is so beautiful! The four of you are a beautiful family, and the pictures of Caty and Hanna together are so precious! You can tell that Caty is a proud big sister and very helpful in caring for Hanna! I'm so happy for you guys, and seeing the pictures makes me even more excited to see Simon with his new baby brother/sister in a few months!
