A Major Milestone!

Yesterday, 11-20-2008, Aaron checked his own blood sugar for the first time! For me, this may be a bigger milestone than taking his first steps or being potty-trained! Some of you may be thinking that your son or daughter was checking their blood sugar years before they were 9. Well, we have never really pushed Aaron (encouraged, yes, pushed, no) to do this, feeling that when he was ready he would do it. Well, that day has arrived! In fact, he wanted to do it 3 times. I teased him that now he'll have to learn how to do his own site changes...he didn't think that was too funny. He can already give himself his boluses (with supervision, of course). I think this is the beginning of the end of his dependence on Mom and Dad!
