So I would like to think that I'm good at this blogging thing (although I've never done it before) but as I look at other people's blogs I think I may be clueless. I love the blogs I've read through meeting people on line. People are so good at sharing their stories, which I know are not always easy. Sometimes it's strange to think you share such personal feelings and issues with people you have never even met before, but I guess it's important to help others and learn from others...and really for me in a lot of ways it's to hopefully help teach others to be more accepting and understand that altough some of us have many differences, we are really all the same.

We have our first LPA event on the 9th of February which I am super excited about. I think it's going to be fun and maybe even a little emotional too. I say emotional because for some reason I feel like when we are in a room with other children and or adults that are little it will make this whole experience more real for us. Maybe not, but sometimes I forget Kaela is going to forever be a little person. I truly have no problem with the fact that she will be little (I wish I could say that about all aspects of it, but when it comes to the health concerns there's no being okay with not okay things)'s just that I have never known anyone who is a LP. I know Kaela will grow up to be the average kid though...the only thing that will not be avearge is her size....and maybe her heart...I have a good feeling about my kids :) Maybe that's the mom talking in me (ha ha)...but I think they will be good caring people. Lets hope at least :)

Anyway- I am very excited about going and meeting new people of any size really. I think Will is going to have fun too- I think he enjoys being around other kids. Matt's starting a play group with the kids in Feb. though, which will be really good for him...both of them really...

So our trip to Delaware is in a few months and I am getting more and more anxious by the day. I am also getting more axnious about meeting more people with Metatropic. I really hope that there will be at least ONE person at the Detroit Conference in June who has Metatropic. It would be really great to actually meet someone face to face! I would really love to meet anyone with dwarfism or a child with dwarfism face to face....I would love for Kaela to have lp friends growing up. I think it would be really good for her...I know I've said this many times before, I guess I really think it would be good for her. I better go tend to my children. Kaela's having fun rolling all over the floor shoving whatever fits into her mouth. She's such a cutie....and Will's off playing with his trucks of course! Who knew a boy could love his trucks SO teddy bears in bed at night..only the biggest metal diggers you can find in the house surrounded by little ones...:)
