Autism CareWalk

Today we walked in the Autism CareWalk with some teachers and staff from Olivia's school.  I had signed up to walk before we received the autism spectrum diagnosis for Olivia.  Wow, what a turnout and such great support!  It was a beautiful morning (although a bit windy) and we had a great time.  Abigail especially liked picking out all the doggies.

Twenty minutes

Twenty minutes jogging, no walking: that was my challenge today. It was a big jump from my last run.

And I did it.  It wasn't pretty. . .it was windy and I took it pretty slow, but I did it. And my blood sugar was 80 afterwards (I just have to take a glucose tablet for every mile I run.  I'm learning.) Just a few weeks ago I couldn't run two minutes at a time.  And now I can run two miles!  I'm feeling pretty accomplished.  My energy is up, my restless legs are better and my blood sugar is improving.

17 Months

Yesterday my baby turned 17 months old.  17 months old already!  She is just an awesome little girl and we are so blessed.  She is finally sleeping through the night pretty consistently (as long as we keep the thermostat below 70 degrees.) Abigail has had 5 teeth forever and now she is getting about 5 more all at once.  She has been a bit cranky lately because of it.  She is about 31 inches tall and weighs almost 26 lbs! Olivia and Abigail are now the best of friends and it is so amazing to watch.  Nobody can make Abigail laugh like Olivia can. I love my girls so much!
