Since going off gluten a little more than four months ago, Olivia has grown over an inch and gained almost five and a half pounds. Four months. Five pounds. So, while she was never symptomatic, the celiac was obviously interfering with her ability to properly utilize what she was eating. Either that or she just had one hell of a growth spurt.

Her A1c is 7.2, which is respectable for someone her age and is lower than the day she went on the pump, but is higher than it had been in the last year or so of multiple daily injections. Disappointing. But she was sick a lot this winter and we did struggle with getting everything dialed in when she first went on the pump. Still.

In other news...Four? Four beats the hell out of Three. No contest. I am already loving Four. This was a hard winter for us and I am going to lay a lot of that at Three's door. Three was massive day-long tantrums. Three was exceedingly unreasonable. Four dislikes warms baths and is into screaming and fit-pitching, but Four can talk about Four's feelings. Four and I have been having fun.

Sawyer is not yet crawling, but did say his first word on Mother's Day...bye-bye. Sawyer is going to be my "get into everything" baby. He's the Ninja. You don't know how he got under that table or what that thing is that's in his mouth, but he did it with a quickness. My already light blog posting is sure to fall off to nothing when he starts crawling and walking.

Here's to 4 being the easiest year yet! That's great news about her growth and pump transition going well.

Someone told me that the tantrums stop with 4, but I continue to witness tantrums in 5 and 6 year olds... Being able to talk it out does have it's advantages, that's for sure. Now I just need to figure out exactly what to say and when.

I'll have Elliott give a few lessons on crawling if Sawyer will give some lessons on talking. Elliott is stuck on the letter "A" - his babbling consists of "aaaaaaaaa" for now :)

Great A1C! Higher yes, but still good compared to ours....8.5 last visit, and on the pump since July. With a few adjustments this time, maybe a better report card.

Oh, and tantrums? I'm still witnessing them at 8!
