september already?

Where has time gone?  I officially have a 9 month old, a new minimed revel pump, an omnipod (2 pumps?), the summer's pretty much over, and we got a house.  I think that sums it up.

The baby is getting so big.  He's trying to walk.  He climbs up EVERYTHING.  Babbles constantly - says mama, dada, baba, and wow.  He still only has the 2 bottom teeth he got at 3 months and is cute as can be.  He can crawl faster than I can walk, loves all food *majority adult food* except baby mac n cheese and is happy about 99.5 percent of the time.  He's a good baby and we are extremely blessed.  Best of all ... Do I dare say it? he LOVES to sleep.  From 11pm until 10am ... daily.  Plus 2-3 naps a day.    :-)

on to the pumps?  I officially am back to being a minimed pumper and couldnt be happier.  I actually kept the omni pod also to use when I don't want tubing or am wearing clothing that just doesn't work with the tubing.  And even though the summer is ending it's Fantastic for swimming!  Now It's time to be approved for my cgm.  I have an endo appointment in hopes that my dr. will sign off on the paperwork as that's all that we're waiting for.

Summer's almost over and I'm thrilled!  I have the heat, it makes me absolutely miserable.  I'll miss the beach but I love the fall.  I love sweaters and leaves and changing colors and being comfortable!  The only real thing that i'll miss is swimming.  I'm a huge water fan and would swim all day every day if possible.

And the house ... of well WE didn't buy a house, but my brother and his girlfriend did.  They bought a gorgeous duplex and we're going to take the one side and pay them rent while they take the other.  There's a huge yard, 2 car garage, beautiful front porch, 2 bedrooms on our side - 3 on theirs.  I am beyond excited to get out of this itty bitty apartment where we have no space.  Hopefully we'll be moving on or around november 15th.

also head on over to The Gluten-Free Homemaker for an awesome giveaway.  You won't be sorry!  :-)
