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!

Simple Woman's Daybook - August 27th 2012

For today – August 27th, 2012

Outside my window… the sun is shining but thankfully it's not scorching hot!  Only supposed to be about 90*

I am thankful for… the trip to the cabin this coming weekend!!

In the kitchen… nothing much going on in there.  Dishes are finishing the dishwasher then will need putting away but that's about it.

I am wearing… shorts and a t-shirt

I am creating… ideas for blog posts.  Slacking - yep that's me!!

I am going to… see what I can get accomplished while Cameron is napping and Hanna is taking "quiet time"

I am reading… Just about to start Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - I've heard it's really good

I am hoping… to catch up on blogs soon!

I am hearing…Max & Ruby - Hanna's show of choice for her quiet time

Around the house… Hanna is watching her show, Cameron is snoozing and it’s pretty quiet this morning

A few plans for the rest of the week…Caty - school, school, school, school, and school.  Minimum day on Wednesday for her though.  Just the usual same ole weekly routine.  Friday will be spent packing for the cabin and Saturday morning we'll hit the road.  We're meeting our friends Al and Jayme and their two girls up there.  Nice relaxing weekend in Pinecrest and we'll head home Monday.  Great way to spend Labor Day Weekend!

A picture that I’m sharing…Caty staying cool

That pink cast sure didn't stop Caty from doing anything!

Flashback Friday - August 17th 2012

Seeing as school just started, I thought we'd flashback to the start of the school year for Caty

1st grade

Homework time!

A few days before Caty started kindergarten she broke a bone in her foot - what a way to start the school year!

Still smiling though!


A few days after she got her hard cast on


Big/Little Sis

Me and my Hanna

Each of us at 2 1/2 months

Bath-time fun!
