I love the family picture! Your girls' hair is so long and beautiful.
Have you always lived in NJ? We're not far from there (we're in PA but pretty close to the state line). I feel like most people we meet have lived up in this area for their entire lives.
Do you sell any of your bows, tutus, etc. or is it more for fun?
If you don't mind me asking, what kinds of medical issues does R deal with? I'm sorry she's had to spend so much time with doctors and in hospitals - poor thing.
I've lived in NJ my whole life! We are in Central NJ and I live in the same town I grew up in!
I do sell my bows and tutus. I have a facebook page set up...I think the link is in my siggy
Rylan is our miracle baby! Besides the trach, if you looked at her, you would never know anything was wrong. So Ry has VACTERL, tracheomalacia, subglottic stenosis grade 2, laryngeal cleft type 3, esophogeal stricture...lol VACTERL is an acronym for various birth defects. She has V (vertebral) scolisos, A (Anal atresia) an imperforate anus, C (cardiac) dextrocardia (heart is on the right side), ASD, PDA (which are little holes), TE (trachel esophogeal atresia) she has a small opening between her esophagus and trachea, L (limbs) she has "funny" thumbs.
So basically...she has a trach because her airway is teeny tiny...when she was born her airway was 95% occluded! No one knew how she made it to 2 months old, which is when she was trached. She had colostomy, which is reversed now and she poos normally!! She actually had her first real poo on our anniversary! BEST anniversary present ever!! She also has a g-tube because she never learned to eat...BUT she is super smart and you seriously would never know she had 17 surgeries!!
Sorry for the novel! I am very open about Ry!

Do you have any other hobbies other than crafting and running?
How did you and DH meet?
Here's a pic of some of my stuff that I had posted on a local yardsale site
I enjoy reading sometimes, but don't have much time for that! Other than that its all about the girls!
DH and I met through a mutual friend that I actually couldn't stand! We've been together 11 years!
