Life with a diabetic mother

"Mommy, I need my medicine. I pinch my belly."

He then proceeds to lift up his shirt, take a flap of belly skin, and press the drumstick in.

"I'm all done poking my belly."

Dirt Date

Matthew loves to play in the dirt. Digging, shoveling, just sitting -whatever. The other day he told me, "C'mon Mommy. Let's go!" I asked where we were going. "On a date," he replied. When I got to where he was standing in the yard he handed me a shovel and said,"It's a dirt date." Since then he has taken me on several more "dirt dates".

This was not actually one of them. I snuck up on his independent play time because he looks so darn cute in his hat just playing away in the dirt. Notice the rain boots. He took off his tennis shoes (and socks?!) and put the boots on before he headed out to the yard.
I love this kid!

Happy Birthday Matthew!

Ok, so I'm a month late posting this, but give me a break! I am very pregnant people. It's exhausting! We had a Zoo themed party for Matt with all his friends. He loved all the attention and having people at his house. he was not so fond of sharing his toys.
He opened all of his presents by himself and took time to thank and hug everyone after each opening.
His favorite gift was a dump truck set from Grandma and Grandpa. He hopped right on and scooted around the house wearing his "fireman" hat.

Some of Matthew's favorites at two are digging and scooping with dump trucks, coloring straight lines and circles, drinking no caff (milk with cinnamon), going to the zoo, playing trains, and still all things pink.
