See, I am crazy!

I do not know what I was worried about! We met four amazing families and with so many beautiful kiddos to talk about, I was never in the corner by myself. We spent the majority of the time oohing and aahing over the children and chit-chatting. The kids were all beautiful, here are just a few of the many pictures I took. Unfortunately the older kids were busy running around so I did not take any pictures of he AH kids. First meet the infamous Knoah! Just look at that grin...doesn't it just say "TROUBLE?"
We also met the beautiful Kaela! She is the prettiest little girl with beautiful blue eyes and the sweetest personality.

Here is the handsome Owen. He was the big man, showing off all of his tricks! Look at that adorable face. He reminded us so much of Hannah at that age (except for the fact that he was a boy and didn't really look like her!)
Next up is Aidan, whose Mommy does not have a blog! Just look at those adorable blue eyes. Owen and Aidan both have gorgeous red hair...they almost look like they could be related.

We tried to get the kids all together, I did not have much luck on my end maybe one of the other moms got a better picture. The poor kids had so many cameras flashing at them, they probably were getting tired of it by this point.
Here are all of the Mommies with our beautiful children. From left to right, is Sarah and Kaela, Sue and Aidan, Me and Hannah, bottom: Cat and Owen and Tonya and Knoah.

We had so much fun playing with all the kids and my Hannah absolutely fell in love with Tonya's Hannah! She was still talking about her right before bed. I am so glad we got the chance to meet so many amazing people, thanks Tonya for getting everybody together.

Sounds like you guys had a blast! I have a little girl, Elizabeth with achondroplasia. She's 3 1/2 and will be 4 in June. We are in Michigan a lot visiting relatives. So, one of these times, we'll need to connect with some of you guys. Looks like so much fun!!

Hi Catie, my name is Jaime and I also found your blog through Tonya's. I have a daughter, Caitlyn, who just turned 3 and also has achondroplasia. From the looks of the pictures, it sure seemed like you guys had a great time getting together. I remember my first time meeting other parents of little people, I had some of the same feeling as you did. But it was such a wonderful experience to see kids just like Caitlyn. I would love for you to come and check out my blog. If you don't mind, could I add a link from my page to yours? I look forward to falling along with your story.

I didn't know you had a blog. I'm so excited to see it. Would you mind if I added your link? It was so nice meeting you and your family. Both of your kids are super cute and fun! After we got home I realized I didn't really take many pics of the AH kids...or the older ones. They were all so busy :) Will tried very hard to be part of the 'older' kids, although I don't think they really cared for that :) I hope we get to meet again. Your stawberry pie was amazing. If it's not a family secret, I'd love the receipe :)Hope to see you all again soon.

Catie, I just caught up ond read your blog for the first time. I can't believe you were so nervous to meet everyone! It was so much fun to meet you and your hubby and your two beautiful children and I hope you will be a part of my life for a very long time now!

Oh and PS....GREAT pies!!

Jaime M said...

Thanks for letting me add you to my blog. I went and changed my mistake. I thought that they had said National Guard at the concert, I guess it was just TOO INCREDIBLY LOUD in there. I look forward to reading more of your story.
