A Play Date Picture Post

If you are on Facebook than you know that I hosted a T1 and Sibs play date today.
O M G! It was so fun. Oh yea - and the kids had fun too. I love all my D-Mama pals - new and old!! The kids had a blast and each and every one of them pouted when it was time to leave --- I pouted too!!

Quick introductions ----
In attendance today:

Joanne, Fred (he's cool like that), Elise (3) and Mattias (5-months)
Jessica, Liam (4) and Peyton (1)
Heather, Parker (4) and Avery (2)
Becky, Hudson (5) and Sophie (3)
Me, Sophie (5) and Nate (2)

So, yep - we had 10 kiddos total.  5 of which have T1D - 3 pumpers (2 OmniPod and 1 Pink Ping) and 2 MDI.  Liam was running a little HIGH and Nate was running a little LOW but you would not know it by looking at any of the kiddos!!

 This picture is so funny --- Nate loved Becky and even went and got a chair so he could sit by her! Then he kept bossing her around telling her how to color his Scooby Doo coloring book!  She was SO sweet and did everything he told her to do.  :)

Jo and Mattias

I didn't get a picture of Hudson - how did that happen?  But - he's a super cutie just like the rest of the sweet boys that were here today.  

Diabetes brought us all together (bleck!) BUT - I'm so lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful ladies (& Fred) and all of their wonderful children.  And . . . my favorite part of this post of pics is that unless you know who has T1 and who does not . . . you can't tell by looking at the pictures.

You know Fred had as much fun as everybody else! Thanks Laura for being such an awesome hostess... we had a BLAST!

And what is up with my smile in that picture? I look like I'm trying to take a poop or something! Or I'm about to eat Mattias. So very unphotogenic!

Third. Amazingly awesome!! I wish I could have been there, what a blessing to have each other!

A T1 playdate....how awesome & fun!!! Thanks for sharing the pics...and I love that your fave part is not being able to tell who the T1s are and aren't unless you already know :)

Meri said...

I'm practically exploding from all this cuteness!! How could you take it all in?

Denise said...

How great to get all those kiddos together...what fun!

Reyna said...

Seriously COOL BEANS! Jessica and Jo!!!! Jo - you do not look like you 'need to take a poop!'....and honestly that looks like such a blast Laura! I too, like that you cannot tell which kids have 'd'...the double-edged sword of 'd'...the "invisiblity" of it.

(((HUGS)))

Lora said...

Looks so fun... :)
