I have a few random updates for my loyal blog readers. First, Sydney's appointment went well yesterday. I blogged earlier that her sugars have been pretty unstable recently. Her doctor upped her Lantus (the long acting insulin) to 4 units a day and that has helped dramatically! He was pleased with that. He also did an A1C test. This is a blood test that measures average sugar levels over the past 2-3 months. It is a great test to show what her sugars have been doing as a whole. The results were 7.5 which is a little high but her doctor was pleased with these numbers. Next appointment is in October! Sydney is such a trooper for those blood tests though. She doesn't move. She will shed a few tears but she doesn't move a muscle. Literally, she holds absolutely still! I was so proud of her.
Second, 2 days ago I got something I have wanted for so long! My diploma arrived! I technically graduated on May 10 but they have to wait for my final semester's grades to be turned in before they can issue a diploma. My grades were fine and so my diploma arrived! YAY!
Yesterday afternoon we also got everyone's teeth cleaned. Sydney always does great because she has been to the dentist every 6 months since she was 2 1/2. But this was Morgan's first time. I was nervous wondering how she would react. To my surprise Morgan did great!! She watched Sydney first and then when it was her turn she hopped right up in the chair and did everything they asked her! I am pleased to announce that we all had another successful cleaning with no cavities! Woohoo!

For a couple of hours everyday this week we have been watching my cousin Josh and his wife Whitney's baby girl Becca Raye who is 3 1/2 months old. She is such a cutie and the best baby!! She never cries. When it is nap time I just lay her down wide awake and she falls asleep on her own! I'm impressed. My girls have loved having a baby to play with and Syd is such a big helper! We will miss her when babysitting is through. This is a cute pic but Morgan was trying to talk when I snapped the photo. he he he
