Hello. My name is Abby. I'm eight years old and I was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome when I turned two. My parents work hard to help me make sense of the world around me and this blog is meant to help others understand my world and my journey with Rett Syndrome.

The sun came out this weekend....finally!!

It has been so deary here for weeks, but the sun finally came out this weekend.  It is in the 60's today and feels so nice!
Abby's cast is now green.  The purple one was slipping off, so she had to get a new one on Friday.  This one does not allow her to move her elbow, but at least it will only be on for another 2 weeks.
I think Abby views the park as an outdoor therapy session.  She tolerates it, but by no stretch of the imagination do I think it would somewhere she would choose to go.  It is a good place for her to work on stairs, walking up and down ramps and other uneven surfaces, and using her hands.  For Abby, this is all work.  Sometimes we are successful in making it seem like play.  I think today she was so happy to be outside, she didn't care if it was therapy or not.  No doubt, her favorite part of the trip was the open space to roam around.  She is walking well, but I am a little scared to let her walk on the hardwood floors, fearing she might fall again and injure her wrist.  Outside, the ground was soft and she enjoyed walking around and checking out what all the other kids were doing.
This was the first time Logan has been to the park since he started walking, and he loved it!  He has finally found a place where he is allowed, even encouraged, to climb. 


  1. Ahh! We will have to go to the park soon...we went to Bernheim yesterday and it was wonderful. I know the kids are dying to play on the slides and swings and all, though.

    I love your pictures! It looks like Logan was having a blast, and it's great that you were able to get them outside. This weather is so nice...it's amazing how you appreciate the warm weather as Spring starts, isn't it?

  2. i so wish we werent 3000 miles away. Nolan and Logan would be best buds and Abby and Avery, BFF's!! it would be sooooo fun!!
