Amy said...

WOW Jill!!! So much has happened in your family in 2009...Meri's right...what a year!

Leighann of D-Mom Blog said...

Wow, what a busy year!

The diabetes doll is great! We have a bear that has a pod on it. And of course we have Rufus. I may have to turn an actual doll into a diabetic as well.

I just launched a new blog called D-Mom Blog, which I hope is a resource to other parents of diabetic children. I hope to develop relationships with more parents.
