Let’s get the boring facts out of the way first.
- There are four of us: Me, also known as Leah and Mom (am I ever going to get used to that??), Dustin aka Dad, D-Mac or Babe ( I know, I know we are wicked unique with our pet names…), Theodore, who goes by many names including: Theo, Teddy, Piglet, Little and Turtle and last, Akira, who we typically call Kira, but she sometimes gets called Monster or Dogface.
- All four of us are native to Colorado (well we assume Kira is, we adopted her from the Dumb Friends League in Denver), and we like the typical things Coloradans do; such as camping, fishing, hiking and snowboarding.
- When Theo was 32 days old he was diagnosed with Familial Exudative Vitreoretinopathy (FEVR), a hereditary disease that impacts the eye.
- As of today I am four months into this whole parenting thing, and learning as I go. It’s an adventure and I can’t wait to see where it takes us!
