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!

Sprinkler Fun!

The girls took advantage of the sprinklers on one of our 100+ degree days.  Caty sure impressed us because last summer she would have nothing to do with getting her face wet.

Our 2 Year Old

So it’s been a few weeks since our little Hanna turned 2.  I just can’t believe she’s that old already – wasn’t I just facebooking while in labor – yes, I’m a mom, I can multi-task :-)
