You can't really tell from this picture but he was pretty skinny. He had not gained any weight from his 12-month check-up to his dx date which was 9/17/09. He was days away from 15-months. After his diagnosis he gained 7lbs by his 18-month check-up.
And here he is my little chunky monkey now - - -
I actually like looking at these 2 pictures. Nate has grown into such a big, strong, healthy all boy kind of boy. So far, D has not slowed him down and I expect it to stay that way. I know we will have hurdles along the way but we take them one at a time and worry about them as they come.
It is just strange how sometimes D can just punch you in the gut unexpectedly. It happened today with a sad memory but I quickly recovered and thought how blessed I am to have my sweet son here with me.
Looks like he's been putting his waffles to good use. :)
He is such a cutie pie, and you are right- he isn't let D holding him back! Look how much he's grown. We have two of the strongest, most amazing little boys. We should take more cues on how to handle all this D nonsense from them.
Love you and love that amazing all-boy boy of yours!
I've been doing this D thing for 4 1/2 years now and diabetes still gets in the occasional jab. It doesn't get me as much as it used to, but some things still sting unexpectantly. Sometimes it's the wierdest things too. Just wanted to let you know that I know how you feel.
I was sad the other day as I sat in the Endo office. I watched a dad come in with his little guy (3 or 4 yrs old) looking kinda lost. You know that 1st visit when your not sure where to go/ how to check in or what to expect. I remember that day. I was so lost then :(
I am so glad you had the chance to spend that time with him though... you can't beat that.
