Newest Grandchild

Little Sarah is a wonderful addition to our family. She looks a lot like Dylan when he was born, but she also has some of Jadyn's expressions. Her eyes are the same color as Jadyn's were when she was born. It is hard to catch her with here eyes open long enough to snap a picture. She weighed in at 9 lbs. 8 oz. and was 20 inches long, Amy's smallest in weight and length. Dylan and Jadyn are so excited to have her at home, they are not going to be anxious to go to school all day and be away from her. She is doing very well and eating like a champ. Jadyn and Dylan stayed with us Thursday- Saturday nights. Sarah and Mama came home Sunday afternoon.

Had the snow tires changed to regular Saturday. For once I beat the last minute backlog. Then Monday snow in the forecast. Thankfully, it stayed mostly in the valley and didn't stick. I'm going to Portland tomorrow with Katy, Marcus and Ryder for more diabetes training. Children's blood sugar can really bounce. Hopefully, the snow will not show itself. I'm the bus driver. Having lived there before, navigating is easier. None of this makes much sense. It must be sleep deprivation catching up with me. Too many late nights.

No matter how many toys they have they always want to play with the same one at the same time. Teka is on the left. Beau is on the right. They really enjoy spending time together. The snow has finally melted off so they can run in the front yard playing catch me if you can. They love everyone.
Ryder is doing pretty well since his diagnosis of type I diabetes. Naturally he is not fond of fingersticks and shots, but he doesn't cry. Occasionally an ouch, but that's about it. He only goes to daycare on Thursdays this term so I go over to give him his shot at lunchtime. The other kids got very quiet when it was time for his shot. I kept telling him he couldn't eat until he had it. The others may have thought they had to have one before they could eat.
I am so ready for some consistent sunshine. I need to get outside to go for a walk.
