Sorry I haven't been posting much lately! This week and next are going to be even busier than usual. Yesterday we had a day full of doctor appointments. Ryann went in for her diabetes check up and she is looking good. She weighed in at 46lbs which puts her in the 95th percentile. So she is back to where she was before her diabetes got diagnosed. But he checked her all out and even "tickled" her feet (people with diabetes have to really take good care of their feet). We talked about some of the new and exciting things that are starting to come out for people with diabetes. One being a blood glucose monitor that will tell you a person's blood sugar every five minutes, you can hook it up into a computer as well and set up a program that will keep track of all the numbers.

Calvin also went in yesterday for his one year check up. Boy has he gotten big...funny to think how tiny he was at just 6 months and that they were worried about his weight. They definitely aren't anymore, he weighed in at 27lbs15oz which puts him in at the 95th percentile (he was below the 3rd percentile at 6 months) and he was 32 and 3/4 inches long which puts him over the 97th percentile. He is also looking good (if you couldn't tell by his stats)! He is doing everything that he should be doing at this age and more. He had to get 5 shots, which he wasn't very happy about and made for a rough evening since his poor little legs were sore...everytime you even brushed against them he would start crying.

Well I better finish this update a bit later...the kids are all starting to wake up and they are hungry for breakfast.
