We got to have some cousin time as my sister and her kids come to visit for a few days. We went over to CHAP (Children's Healing Art Project).
We found a new cool kids salon and David got his hair cut. One of my good friends did his first few cuts and then she moved to another state. I have taken him to a place (just a little nicer than Super Cuts) and didn't have good luck with the cowlicks. I researched and found a place tailored for kids that had recently opened on the other side of town. Bekah has been growing her hair out and I gave her the option of buying some new clips to keep her hair out of her eyes or getting it cut and she chose the clips. That was until she saw this cool place. She wanted in on the hair cut action as well. (She is super shy and doesn't like adults that she doesn't know well) She was totally in to it and even picked a new look from a book.

Miss Kihembah (pronounced kimba) took up most of our spring break. Josh is doing a great job with her. I have to say there is not much cuter than a 2 year old playing with a puppy. Border Collies and Australian Shepherds are herding dogs. Being a mix of both our little gal is a master herder at only 8 weeks old. At first we thought it was cute that she was herding David but now we realize that we need to nip this behavior in the bud. (pun intended) She is one smart puppy! She is pretty much house trained after a week. We only had one poopy in the house and that was in the first 24 hours after bringing her home. She has even rung the bell that we put on the door for her and then went out and made a poop in the yard. Good doggy! She has a tiny bladder and has trouble holding it from her crate (up in Josh's room) down the stairs and across the living room to out side. We carry her so we have been doing lots of laundry as well.

Well tomorrow is back to the grind. I have enjoyed our lazy days of sleeping in and just hanging out. BG wise it's been quite odd and I think Bekah's pancreas may have kicked the bucket. There have been times when I thought she had come out of the honeymoon phase but I am quite convinced now. Since her ear infection she had one day of absolute bliss. BG levels went from 93-127 ALL day long. 24 hours of this, I thought we had reached some sort of BG nirvana. The next day was HBG all day long so I set a temp basal increase of 30% for 24 hrs and then again 24 hrs later. After three days of this and still having trouble keeping her BG numbers in a decent range I went in and pushed her basals all up a notch in the pump. We will ride this out for 3 days (tomorrow being day 3) and then begin doing some basal tests to see where her basal needs are falling right now. She could be growing,or that infection could be back. I guess it's mostly just watch and wait to see if her insulin needs are increasing.
