up yours, rett syndrome

i was watching some old family videos this afternoon. depending on the day, these videos make me feel different things. today they made me smile.

then i had ryan watch one. his response?: "up yours, rett syndrome."

i couldn't agree more.

for now, i'll share my three old favorites with you. i love that little voice.

and one day {hopefully soon} i'll get brave and post some videos of our little leah as she is now. no worries, she's still cute.

Such cute videos!

dani said...

Yeah. That deserves an up yours. Maybe even something more harsh than a little Mormon swear like that. Leah had the cutest tricks back then but we want to see all of her new ones! When do we ever get to see you guys again??

I love that "bea" for leah, just like bria says-- just like you told me. so cute!
and I love that cute little laugh when you would ask her to say something. she's so cute!

She is such a doll and her laugh couldn't be cuter. We don't need new tricks, just more of that dimpled smile and contagious giggle!

Thanks for sharing those videos! She is so blasted cute (then and now). I am sure it is difficult to watch those sometimes...and I do love Ryan's comment! Hope you are doing well!

Yeah Rett Syndrome can kiss my butt! I must admit I teared up. Love you Leah!

Jenny said...

Oh I love her laugh! That was just so sweet...you'll cherish these forever, and your kids will watch them, and they'll know their big sister in a different, really special way. I need to give you a call -- dinner sometime?

Maren....her sweet giggle is still the same. I seriously love her, it's soooo fun to see these videos of her when she was so little! I love her little face!
