Time to celebrate!

Wow. That last post was a doozy. I'm feeling much better now, thanks to some perspective, a few days with much better numbers, and some sweet comments left by you guys. Thanks for the love!

Today we will FINALLY be celebrating Elise's second birthday... only a few weeks late! It's going to be a little bigger and crazier than we anticipated, but perhaps we can combine it with her one year D-Anniversary to justify the blood, sweat, tears, and cost that has gone into it. Next year her birthday will be much smaller.

It will be very interesting to see what all the activity, excitement, and foods she doesn't eat very often will do to her blood sugar. We were going to grill some hamburgers and hot dogs, but due to the amount of people that RSVP'd yes, we decided to order pizza. Elise has never eaten pizza before. I've heard horror stories about what it does to blood sugar, but I figure her BG will be all over the place anyway, so what harm will a little pizza do. From the research I've done, it looks like I should be using a carb factor of .25 to .32. Does anyone have insight on this?

Can't wait to celebrate my sweet, little girl's life!


  1. WOOHOO!!!!!!!!

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post pics...I LOVE seeing pics :)

    I'm so excited to hear that the party is on...and what a great time you will have.

    Enjoy the pizza...and don't worry about the numbers. It'll work itself out eventually!

    FUN FUN FUN!!!!! I can't wait to hear all about it :)

  2. Happy Birthday Elise!! You have SO MUCH to celebrate!!! Pizza is so much easier than cooking for a ton of people- that's what I'd do! :) Jada typically does pretty well with pizza- IF I get the dosage accurate! Jada also typically runs low if we're having a party for her or one of her siblings. I think the adrenaline rush helps to burn sugar! Maybe this will be the case with Elise as well!

    Yes- POST PICS!!!! And have a great time!

  3. It is about time Elise had a FUN birthday. YAHOOOO! This one will leave you with happier memories. I am so happy that you have so many friends that you needed to order pizza! Great support out there. Have fun and ENJOY!

  4. What you guys have accomplished this year is nothing short of a miracle. You DESERVE a party! Celebrate Elise and her beautiful life, but celebrate the two of you as well. The first year is the hardest, and look at your daughter! She is healthy and amazing! Have a great day! (Also, my boys always run low at birthdays too. I don't know if I over bolus all the sugar or it's the excitment of it all :)

  5. I know you guys had such a good time and please let us know how it all went . You guys are amazing and elise is nothing but a miracle . You guys have worked so hard . God bless and take care .
