Our new addition!

Don't worry, I haven't had the baby yet... but the title got your attention, right?

Mwah hah hah hah... I am sooooooo evil!

But we do have someone we'd like to introduce you to... Eileen (as in the Dexy's Midnight Runners song Come on Eileen - Thanks to Marc for the inspiration)!

I never followed up on my last post about the Dexcom, but Fred and I decided to not let the price stop us from getting something that could really be a wonderful tool in her diabetes care.

Elise was so excited when we opened up the box. When she saw the sensors she told me, "I'm not going to cry this time!"

I can't wait until Monday, when we have our training session and we will fire Eileen up.

At one point, Elise was showing it to all her babies when she turned to me and said, "I love my Dexcom, Momma!"

Me too, Elise. Me too.


  1. Love it! I'm so proud of her! She is going to do great with it, and maybe you can catch up on your sleep for a few weeks before your little guy makes his grand entrance!

  2. Sweet! She is so cute..I am looking forward to hearing about how this changes your lives!

  3. Yes you did catch me with the title when I saw it on my blog! :)
    When she saw the sensors she told me, "I'm not going to cry this time!"--broke my heart :(( sweet girl

    Hope it makes the road a little smoother for you both.
