Woo-hoo! We survived Elise's first airplane trip, and first night sleeping anywhere that wasn't her crib with only a few bumps and bruises.
It didn't hurt that we were upgraded to first class on the flight (my first time ever!). We made it through security without a problem... in fact they never even looked in the bag that has all her medical supplies stuffed in there. I learned some things about travelling with D that I hope to post about at a later date.
We're staying with some friends while we're here and they have the cutest five year old twins that just adore Elise. And the feeling is quite mutual. She is basking in all the attention she's getting.
The only bad part came at 3:00 in the morning when she woke up with a BG of 58. She hasn't had a low like that in awhile, and I think it was because I didn't give her enough complex carbs with her bedtime snack. It's hard to deal with a low in the middle of the night, let alone in a strange house where you don't know where anything is.
But we dealt with it and got through it, so all is well!
Today is Elise's second birthday, although it's been pretty low-key because obviously we're not home and we didn't bring any presents for her with us. But we're going to have a fun party next weekend after we get home.
I have a separate birthday post for her that's set to publish tonight at 8:56... the exact moment of her birth two years ago today.
