About

About Maggie:

Maggie was born one day after her Mommy and Daddy’s one year wedding anniversary in May of 2007. She has been a perfect baby…nursed like a champ from the moment she was born, never had a diaper rash, never had a cold or fever, slept pretty well since getting her days and nights straight at 5 months, and always an absolute joy to be around! She does have a strong set of lungs, but she only uses them if she’s sleepy, hungry, or wet…the rest of the time, she just hangs out and has fun. She loves the Wu-Tang Clan, Cypress Hill, Beatles, and Pink Floyd. She’s very happy to meet new people, and loves to play and chase her big furry sister Daisy around the house!

At 10 months old, Maggie was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Williams Syndrome. I like to call it “Happy Singing Elf Syndrome,” although I’m sure that’s very politically incorrect. Really, all joking aside, if you have to have a genetic disorder, it seems to be a pretty good one to have. Maggie appears to be on the mild end of the spectrum, so we’re very thankful for that.

About Mommy and Daddy:

My husband, Tyler, and I were married in May of 2006. We found out in September that we were about to be parents. Maggie was born in May of 2007, one day after our one year anniversary. Maggie is our first child, and has absolutely changed our lives in so many wonderful ways. Tyler is an assistant market manager at the Piggly Wiggly, and Perrin is a self-employed web designer who works full time from home while caring for Maggie.

About this blog:

This blog has switched formats from a pregnancy blog (titled “The Incubation of Baby Girl Brunson”), to a mostly non-existent newborn blog, to a blog about the sweetest little elf you could ever hope to meet. I will do my best to keep up with this so that we can share our experiences with family, friends, and other families in need of information about WS. Viewing other WS mommies’ blogs really helped me when we got Maggie’s diagnosis, so I hope to be able to comfort others who find themselves in the same position.
