Too Marvelous!

October is Rett Syndrome awareness month and I have a team for the strollathon, so I put together this little video to help promote my fundraising page. It certainly wasn't an easy process. Going through old pictures, remembering all of the things that Claire used to be able to do. How she would feed herself, hold her cup and push her little wagon around. It got me thinking about everything that Rett Syndrome means for me and our family. Sure, it is a pain because we have to do so much lifting and it takes forever for her to chew, meals feel like an eternity. Then I look at her, I love how she reminds that nothing has changed. Sure she can't talk or use her hands, but nothing has changed. Claire is who she is and today, other than allergies, she is doing very well, and I am so in love with her!

I love your video, too. She is so precious. I could have guessed that she was a beautiful baby..but, seriously, that smile is to die for.
