2012 Hydro Family Gathering

I love that we live in the age of technology and the internet. After receiving Tyler’s diagnosis of Hydrocephalus, the internet allowed me to reach out to other family members living with this condition. 2 years ago we decided to turn our online friendship into an “In Real Life” friendship. We met 6 other families in Niagara Falls and decided that this needed to become a tradition of meeting up. So this year we decided to meet up in Nashville. Our group has grown since then and there were 16 families total that made the trip, traveling from all over the country – from Washington to Texas to Virginia. It was so good to see everybody again and met some new faces. I couldn’t ask for a better support system.

Kenna - 7 months old

Another month has passed. I feel like we are heading toward the months of a busy toddler and she is only 7 months old. Kenna seems to be constantly on the go. Rolling is still her method of getting around. But man, she is quick. She can get to one end of the room to the other in a matter of seconds. I can't imagine once she starts crawling and let alone walking. How will I ever keep up?

Kenna also got 2 teeth this past month. Her 2 bottom teeth popped through without us even knowing. Let's just hope the rest come in this easy. She is also learning to make new sounds, which makes for some funny faces.
