So there is this baby and she turned one last week, and her name is Getty, and she has Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1 (SMA1).

Happy Birthday, Beautiful.

While baby’s first year for most parents is full of typical challenges like teething and night wakings, Getty’s family has dealt with much much more… like a diagnosis that there is no cure or treatment for, that leaves those diagnosed with a life expectancy of no longer than 2 or 3 years.


You can understand, then, why this first birthday is so special, and why I hope many will help Getty and her family celebrate by buying Lullabies For Getty , a truly beautiful album of modern lullabies, written and recorded by The Damnwells. All proceeds will go to the Getty Owl Foundation, whose mission is to help find a cure for SMA.

Wouldn’t it be great to get Lullabies For Getty on the Itunes kids charts by tonight? What a fantastic show of support and birthday present that would be for baby Getty! I know we can do it. Please, help spread the word! Purchase the album, tell your friends, support Getty, and count your blessings every night as you rock your babies to sleep to the sweet sound of support for SMA. If you can’t purchase the album, please consider liking them on Facebook, following them on Twitter, and spreading the word with the hashtag #gettyowl.

Thanks for being awesome. (And a huge shout out to Morgan at The818 for being the Queen of Awesome for organizing all of this!)

  • Oh. Ok, handsome. 😍
  • There are so many fresh faces here, and I’m thrilled! My 15 month old is currently napping ON ME so I thought I’d use this as an opportunity to introduce myself and share more about Baby Rabies to you newcomers. πŸ€— πŸ‘‹πŸ» I’m Jill Krause, mom of 4 (nearly 10 year old son Kendall, 7 year old daughter Leyna, 4.5 year old son Lowell- we call him LoLo a lot, and 15 month old son Wallace). I’m married to Scott, my college sweetheart- MIZZOU 🐯 πŸ‘Ά
Baby Rabies is what happens when your baby fever is incurable. And that’s what happened to me 11 years ago when I bought BabyRabies.com and decided to blog anonymously about my secret and sudden obsession with conceiving my first baby. πŸ‘¬πŸ€± The logo is a play on a positive pregnancy test, but we love and embrace all kinds of families and caregivers around here, no matter how they came together. πŸ’–
It is my greatest wish that this space is inclusive and supportive and uplifting, without feeling sanctimonious or void of humor. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are always open to improving ourselves, but perfection is never the goal. 🏞
I’m currently traveling the country in an RV with my husband and 4 kids. We sold our dream house last year to find our dream life. We are documenting that at @happy.loud.life So if you see pictures pop up and wonder why we spend so much time in an RV or why our baby has, like, 4 outfits, or why we seem to go on a ton of vacations- that’s why. πŸ˜† ❓
Are you new here? I’d love if you’d introduce yourself below! ✨
  • I could hug whoever invented the puddle jumper floaties. Kids have no idea the torture we endured with blow up floatie wings back in the day. I can still smell the plastic and hear the awful noise they made when you had to take them off after you got wet.
  • Spring training for summer starts now. 🌞
  • Pic unrelated, but it's a cute baby and the thing I want to tell you about is super relevant if you're into babies! Tonight is the countdown to make sure you name is in for the over $3000 in awesomeness that one lucky someone is going to get! Follow the link in our bio before midnight tonight to see what's up! πŸ™ŒπŸ»β€οΈβ¬…οΈ
  • "And some people say they can’t go biking because they have too many kids. I guess 4 is the limit...for now! πŸ˜€" How awesome is this snapshot from @cabinfeverbus?
  • We are doing some RV improvements and have a giant roll of this reflective stuff laying around. New fav photo back drop πŸ˜† Also,  Lowell is such a big kid these days. πŸ˜“ #loloyolo #wallaceaustin
  • Shout out to @siblingrevelryproject on this National Siblings Day. Photographer @ewmcguire celebrates and documents these incredible bonds all year long. Such a beautiful account to follow. ❀️ #siblingrevelryproject
