Climbing Mountains

Pillow and cushion mountains, that is. Declan has always been a mover, and after spending the last 12+ months mostly on his tummy and back, little bro is all about standing (assisted) and climbing up, down and around everything that he can get his little legs up and onto. I don’t blame him, I’ve had fleeting moments of feeling guilty and sad that his body has been unable to do some of the things his brain is likely telling him he’s ready to do. Things that babies the same age, and younger, are able to do. Those feelings don’t last long though. He is such a happy little guy; it’s almost impossible to feel anything but joy when you’re around him.

I’m learning that this blogging world is a pretty amazing place. There’s a beautiful little girl, over on the other side of the continent, who has a pretty amazing mom. You can read about them over at A is for Adelaide. Addie’s mom, Chelley, noticed something on the shelves when she was grocery shopping a few weeks ago. This POLP sprang into action, with this touching video and important message. I also have thoughts on the ‘M’ word and have been planning a blog about it…so stay tuned. Please share this video. Spread the knowledge. Ask for change.


About Tammy

I am a single mother to 2 wonderful children, ages 1 and 5. My youngest was surprisingly born with a rare genetic condition, achondroplasia, which is a type of dwarfism. This blog is a glimpse into my crazy life as I wade through figuring out dwarfism and divorce while enjoying every second of my deficient domestic bliss.
