One 2 year olds birthday + one Christmas + One New Years Eve = 3 weeks eating, drinking, eating, running around, tired bodies, eating and just in case i have missed it alot of eating.
But the the biggest blessing we got through this past three weeks was Emma and her Diabetes. Is it weird to think that this was a blessing to us? Or is it a way of saying that it really empowered us to take control of it. Taking control so much that in these past days she wasn't hit with extremely high numbers or low for that matter. If she ate alot we would run around, if she didn't eat much and was running around we simply put it to her that she needs to eat something so that she can keep playing. Oh god does she ever love to play.
Her diabetes really connected us to her body throughout the holidays. We generated a great feel of the trifecta of carbs/exercise/insulin. With the risk of jinxing us i must say it was more or less a breeze.
She has always been involved with testing and her insulin. I know she hears us talk about carbs, measurements, etc. That will stick one day when she is old enough to understand such things. But as for now she is really getting that every morning it is test, insulin, then milk. No matter how we do it. And i like that she changes her routine every day and if she says no or she isn't ready we just ask her to let us know when and where she wants it. And 9 times out of 10 she will turn right around and let us know where and how.
Things are going really good for now and i hope everyone had the most amazing Christmas and i wish you all the best for the New Year. I have been cheking in daily on you all. Take care.
Goodbye 2006. You were a wild one. 2007 lets see what you bring.
