I'm not good at updating this thing. I should though since I enjoy it. Since my last post Sophie has definitly changed so much. She seems to change everyday & it is so exciting. Who would of thought that I would be laughing & smiling before 6am in the moring? Not I. Thats for sure. It seems no matter what is going on in our lives good or bad she always makes it great.

For example I recently found out that I am Type 2 diabetic. I was put on Metformin & I'm back to testing my BG again. I also need to start recording my readings & what I eat. I'm taking things slow. I'm not going to freak out like I did when I was pregnant. I can't afford to. I need to take baby steps because I will now have to deal with this disease for the rest of my life. I had my wooooh wooooh moment this weekend & took some time for myself to take it all in. Now I'm charging forward. I've set up my appointments with doctors to get my team in order. Thats what you do when you are diabetic. You get a team together to concor your disease. I know it'll be a strugle but I like a challenge so I know I can do this.

Gary of course is awesome. He let me rest on Sunday while he took the bean grocery shopping. I could not ask for a better husband. He is the best.

Even with all that I still am able to find absolute joy in my dear little Bean. She smiles & I smile. She laughs & I laugh. Of all the things this life has given me she is the best of all.

What the Bean is doing now at 14 months:

She says Mommy & Daddy.

She is walking & running.

She brushes her hair.

She gives me her feet to put her shoes & socks on.

She brushes her 2 & 1/4 teeth.

She listents to direction.

She shakes her head yes & no all at the same time. She hasn't got that down yet but she's learning.

She LOVES music & dancing.
