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.

Abby was back at school today, after missing most of last week. She was very excited when she was getting ready (which takes forever to get all her gear ready to get on the bus) She was a little out of sorts at school, though. I think she just needs to get back into the routine after some time at home.

This morning, I was trying to get Abby or Logan to say "dada" on camera for Wes, since he has been out of town for a few days. Logan says it a lot, and Abby has been saying it more lately,too. I asked her to say "dada" and she did. It was very intentional. Usually it seems like she is babbling with or without Wes around. This time was different. It was very cute. I will post it when I figure out how to do a video clip.
