Lexi LOVES her big sister so much. She loves both of her big sisters really. Jessi entertains her and makes her laugh day in and day out. But she has a special bond with Ally. I think it is because Ally is so nurturing. She watches out the window as Ally gets on the bus in the morning. And asks a million times a day "Where'd Alla go?" (Wish you could see her cute shrug of the shoulders and twist of the wrists as she's asking!) As soon as I mention that it's time to watch for the bus...she starts saying Ally's name and smiling. She squeals with delight when Ally finally arrives home from school.
Blood Glucose Meters, bloody used up test strips, the smell of insulin, site changes, insulin pumps, glucose tablets, sharps containers, Walk for a Cure (I could go on and on!) will all be just a part of life for Lexi. They have been around our house since before she was born. They will not represent anything foreign or out of the ordinary to her. They won't even represent "life with diabetes" to her....just life, the only way she knows it.
