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.

I don't know if you can tell in the photo, but Abby lost her first tooth yesterday. She's getting SO big!! As it turned out, she already had an appointment scheduled at the dentist today. She is pretty happy about all the attention that her big girl smile is getting, but she was less than thrilled to see the dentist. She cried big tears the entire appointment, which took forever. Her teeth look healthy, except for the damage of grinding. Thankfully, she was calmed down by the time we got to the car.

Maybe PT, dentist, and hippotherapy was too much for one day?

Logan tagged along with us to the dentist. I thought he could warm up to the idea of a teeth cleaning since he has one coming up. Let's just say, after witnessing Abby's apparent torture, I doubt he gets in that chair without a fight. Yikes.


  1. What a big girl! I thought that tooth looked loose at the bats game. Sorry about the dentist, but yay or tooth fairy.
