Even though my little guy's actual birthday is not until Wednesday, we celebrated with a fun party yesterday at Chuck E. Cheese. And I have to say...that $1.99 Bag-o-crap was pretty decent! But best of all, Adam had a total blast. He played HARD for 3 hours and I tried to keep up with him diabetes-wise, but by the time we got home, he was telling me he was dizzy with a BG of 57. Oh well...I guess I underestimated the power of play! He crashed hard at 7pm and was out for the night.
I can't believe my baby is 5. It has been 5 years since I've had a baby...he's not so little anymore! He's been through so much in his short 5 years - even as I was looking at this pic, I almost forgot about the cleft lip that was so traumatic when he was born (his surgeon did a truly amazing job - it is so hard to see!), and then the cataract and now the diabetes. Funny how all of his issues are "invisible," but they have had a great effect on all of us. He is a strong, happy boy and I know that will help him throughout his life. Happy birthday my little buddy!
