Happy Birthday Maddy!


(Maddys 2nd birthday)


(Maddy napping with her daddy)

To the most beautiful,

(First day of Kindergarten!)


(Maddy, Hoppy and I having a Tea Party)


(Not sure, but she is just so cute!)

amazing 12 year old in the world.

(Maddy and I in Hawaii, July 1999, she was 5.5 months old)

Its hard to believe that 12 years have FLOWN gone by since my baby sister entered this world.

I had just turned 12 when she was born. Although I am often not sure how I lived that long without her.

On every 11:11, shooting star, birthday candles, eyelash on my cheek I would wish for my Mom and Dad to have a baby.

I would pray ALL the time for God to give me have a baby sister or brother. (Yes I do have a sister, Katy, but she is 2 years younger than me and my desire for a younger sibling started when I was about 7)

On February 11th 1999 at 1:37am, my wish came true.

(Maddy and I, She is just a few days old)

Every minute since then has been a blessing having you in it.

(Maddy last night at Comedy Sports for her birthday)

I love you baby girl.

(Blowing out her candles)

I can't wait to see what the next 12 years brings for you

multiple sugars

This is hanging on the wall in the waiting area of my Endocrinologists office.

Every time I'm there I can't help but laugh at it!!

I imagine all these multiple blood sugars running around and getting very glucose deprived.

I also imagine walking up to the receptionist while eating starbursts and saying "That sign told me I had to tell you when I was feeling like the many little sugars in me were low.. but don't worry... I can handle it. I just didn't want the blood sugars police to come after me for not reporting my low to you."

hehe. For the record I either refer to it as my blood glucose, or my blood sugar. Not my blood sugars... thats why it makes me chuckle!!

It was that time of year again..

It was time for my quarterly endo (diabetes dr) appointment.

I couldn't help but notice how relaxed I felt the whole time.

There was many times in that past (almost) 10 years where I have just DREADED going to the endo. Hell there was many times I just wouldn't go at all.

All morning I kept thinking about all those times I would dread going, and how terrible that made me feel.

I am so glad that I no longer fear going to see my doctor.

My A1c (measure of blood glucose over past 3 months) was 7.6%. She was happy with that number. I was not.

I want it in the sixes. There is always 3 months from now to shoot for.

My doctor noticed and commented on my weight loss. Yay. :)

She tweaked my basal rate just a tiny bit and told me she would see me in 3 months. It was such a breath of fresh air!!

I am almost 100% positive that I have THE CUTEST NIECE in the world. I know its not difficult to agree with me :) She has a little bit of dinner on her cheek!! So cute :)

Running on E



*200 units is full for me. It takes me about 4-5 days to get through that much insulin so I only fill my pump with that much*

**This stupid battery would not work for some reason when I put it in! I had to try it like 3 times before it worked!**
