For family night we took our kids to see Bedtime Stories with our neighbors the Hildebrands. The kids wore their pajamas since it was Bedtime stories. (kinda gross I know but they loved it!) It was so much fun even to two year olds had a blast. The funny story about the Hildebrands is Jill the mom and Jon are like second cousins. All of our kids are within months of the same age. The kids are dead set that they are cousins. It is really cute especially since our kids cousins are all tiny. Ryker and Spencer are just the best of friends but everyone at school knows them as cousins. You cannot tell them any different. We have finally let them be and they couldn't be happier. These are the coolest neighbors ever. The kind that is always there for you no matter what. We love them so much!!
I had an appointment yesterday with perinatology. I guess twins are considered high risk pregnancy so I will be seeing them regularly the rest of the time. I was really nervous to go. I used to be the person that believed stuff happens to other people not us. Ever since Kamryn got diagnosed I have turned into the person that thinks that anything can happen. I hate it. Anyways I was trying to prepare myself all week to be ready for not great news. I have heard the higher risk of birth defects and congenital abnormalities with twins so I have definitely had it on my mind. The appointment couldnt have gone better. They are both perfect (so far). They did an hour long ultrasound of them and looked at EVERYTHING they could. Yes they are still boys but at this point I am so happy they are healthy it is all good!!

"Kamryn loves learning to read in kindergarten. She has a dog, a cat, and a hamster, and in her free time enjoys dancing, tumbling and playing with friends. Kamryn has an older and younger brother. She is proud that she has started doing her own finger pokes and is learning how to do insulin shots. Keep doing a great job at managing your diabetes, Kamryn!"
Needless to say our calendar will stay on January all year. We are so proud of how well she is managing her diabetes even though it has made her grow up a little more than she probably wanted to. We are hoping to get her an insulin pump within the next month or two so she will not have to have all of these shots. It has been a year since she has been diagnosed and it has been a roller coaster ride. It is really just part of our lives now and we just go on as normal (as much as we can!)
