Kamryn got her insulin pump almost a month ago. It was a ton of worry and finger pokes at first. We have gotten the hang of it and it is AWESOME!! Kam can eat what she wants when she wants and we just program the machine to give her insulin. She only has to get poked once every 3 days and it has really helped control her sugars. It has not been without issues to work through (she got cellulitis in her leg :( ) It has been a HUGE blessing in our lives. I was worried it would effect her body image at first but she loves to show it off and wears it on her clothes for everyone to see. She is even starting to learn to work it herself. We need to have her a pro before she starts 1st grade in the fall so she can be independent with school lunch.
She also moved into her new room awhile ago. Jon did an awesome job building it for her and it is DARLING. She picked out what she wanted and has it just her way. I worried she would be scared to move into the basement but she loves it.
Rykers birthday was Monday. I cannot believe I have an 8 year old!! He has been so excited to turn 8 and get baptized and start scouts. We only let our kids have a party on their odd birthday but on their even one they get to take a friend and do something fun. Well Jon and I are huge pushovers and ended up taking 9 kids to the clearfield pool to swim! (it is sooo cheap though!) Ryker has a bunch of good friends and everyone wanted him to invite them and i seriously have this problem where I can't say NO! Kamryn brought her friends to so it turned into a bigger group than we started with but it was a blast.
The night of his birthday we got our families together at the pizzaria (of course!) We seriously are addicted to that place. It turned out really fun Ryker had all of his grandparents and his great grandparents come. His aunt and uncle were there with our cute cousins and then remember the "cousins" that are really distant? We were told that they are cousins and have to come so they came also. It was a big group. Ryker felt so special it was great.
