After much harassment encouragement, I entered the blogosphere to document the delightful (or otherwise) and unexpected moments of my younger daughter's life. Hannah was born in 1998. She surprised us with her extra chromosome, and continues to surprise us with her humor, intellect and obstinacy. She takes our breath away. As my elder daughter once wrote, when Hannah was born, our family went from ordinary to extraordinary.

Hannah is Punny
Kate: Hannah, how do you say "slipper" in Chinese? (Hannah randomly told her how to say it last night.)
Hannah: Um. (silence--brain retrieving from archives....) Tuo xie!! (sounds like "twuh sheeyeh")
Kate: Oh, that's right! Does Molasses (Hannah's beloved Teddy) have slippers?
