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.

We have already been trick-or-treating twice, and we will go again before Halloween. There are so many Halloween parties.  Abby is loving it.  She likes the lights, music, and all the costumes.  She liked it much more than the pumpkin patch.  We've had a busy few weeks-here's a few photos.  

Abby and Logan loved trick-or-treating at the zoo.  Abby wore a witch hat with her cute tutu and Logan wore his spiderman pajamas costume.  
Yes, that is a hug!  Abby LOVED the princesses at the zoo, so we got her an Aurora costume for Halloween.  
Abby and I had a play date with Aidan, his brother Kade, and Karlie and her sister Emily last week.  Aidan and Karlie have Rett Syndrome also. Aidan's mom, Kerrie, was nice enough to have us all out to her house.  Her boys are just precious!  I am so happy that Kim and her girls made it, too.  Karlie is absolutely adorable!  It is always great meeting with other Rett families.  We decided that a girls night out is in order very soon.     

Abby's class had their Halloween party today.  She got to wear her costume, which she loved.  Unfortunately, she had a seizure at school this morning.  It was the first one she has had in nearly 8 months. Ugh.  She seemed fine after the seizure, just a little weak.  She still was able to stay for the party and even go to therapy.  Hopefully, it was just a breakthough seizure, and she won't have any more....hopefully.  In the rush to get to her school after hearing she had a seizure, I left my camera at home. She looked pretty sweet in her princess costume-you'll just have to take my word for it. 


  1. Love the costumes! Can't get enough of Abby's beautiful smile!!

  2. HA! I love the pajamas/costume! :)

    I definitely want to get a picture of Abby and Eliana together, if we can. Both Sleeping Beauty! So sweet! And I LOVED the picture of the zoo Sleeping Beauty hugging her. All three of the young ladies who were princesses at the zoo were very sweet, I thought.

    I hope Abby is feeling better today. I am sorry to hear that she had another seizure. :(
