It’s Monday (again!), and I am ready for the week ahead- just 5 days until my parents (mom and stepdad) dock in Boston then Newport on their cruise!
For starters… I am thankful for my LPA district. We have a lot of events planned and though we cannot afford to go to most, it is always a treat when we get to go- and even more awesome that the one this weekend was the first time Dave was able to join in, too! This is also my dwarfism shout-out this week! A few people have found this blog, or me via Facebook, but they have yet to check out the LPA. This organization has been crucial in our education about dwarfism, as well as supporting us as we find the best doctors, activities and parenting advice.
I cannot say enough good things about the national level of the LPA, but it’s the local chapter that really created the close-knit community that I’ve grown to depend on. Mamas and papas who know the ropes have explained so much to me, as well as reaffirmed my belief that Addie can do whatever she puts her mind to- dwarfism is just a part of her, it does not define her. This was totally the case as she led us through the cornmaze at our Halloween get together in Southampton, MA at the Rolling Acres Farm!
Lastly… my random of the week is a huge THANK YOU to Jen from JLS Photography! We grabbed a LivingSocial deal months ago for such a great price, I must admit I was skeptical but… After postponing our summer session due to Addie’s tendency to overheat, Jen braved a threatening sky to take our Fall portraits last weekend at Lincoln Woods State Park. It got a bit chilly, and Addie was squirming for a snack, but she stuck it out with us and made our holiday card decision difficult! These are a few of my favorites, but won’t make it to your mailbox (I couldn’t choose them all for our cards!). As usual, these pictures are not for copying or sharing without permission. Thank you!!!!
Have a beautiful Fall week!!!
