"OUR LITTLE FAMILY" JOINS THE TLC LINEUP THIS FEBRUARY
New series following the Hamill family premieres February 17th at 10pm ET/PT
NEW YORK - TLC's newest faces, the Hamills, are not the typical American family. Parents Dan and Michelle along with their son and twin daughters are all little people - all five family members have achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. TLC follows their life in new series OUR LITTLE FAMILY premiering February 17th at 10PM ET/PT. Both parents are proud little people who are even more thrilled their kids (Jack, Cate and CeCe) are little just like them; however, growing up in an average-sized world has its complications, and they know the road ahead for their children is not going to be easy.
Now that Jack is six years-old, and the twins are turning three, the Hamill children are becoming more aware of the fact they are different from other kids. Dan and Michelle use their own experiences to help guide their kids to overcome physical challenges and learn to adapt to the world around them. The season is full of real family obstacles - potty training, starting kindergarten, joining extracurricular activities, sibling arguments - but with a house full of vivacious personalities and tons of laughter, the family faces any challenge thrown their way together and always with a positive attitude.
Throughout the season of OUR LITTLE FAMILY, viewers get an inside look into the Hamills' world from birthday parties and holidays to anniversaries and casual days in the park. The family celebrates the twins' third birthday, and with the girls' ever-changing personalities, deciding a theme proves to be a difficult task. In other episodes, the Hamills celebrate the holidays, dressing up for the first time as a family for Halloween and setting up new traditions for the kids. At Thanksgiving, Michelle agrees to make the turkey for the big family dinner, and for the first time ever, the family takes a real vacation over Christmas. Dan and Michelle also celebrate their seventh wedding anniversary with a romantic parents' night out, but with mom and dad away, Michelle's brother is left in charge of the kids and hilarity ensues.
