Day 5: My Birthday Week. This guy. His happiness is pretty important right now and seeing him this excited about his pump has me pretty stoked. #typef1nn

Day 3: My Birthday Week. This guy got his insulin pump set up today and we’re practicing with saline until Wednesday when we get to start insulin. It’s a whole new ball game with a pump and we’re looking forward to better control and a little more autonomy for Finney. It's all still so scary and I still cry at just about everything, but this is life and we have to adjust. We have no choice except to do so with our heads held high and smiles when we have them, which is honestly most of the time for this dude who is just the happiest goofball I know. I love this sweet, silly, smart and super-amazing kid. Happy birthday to me, indeed.

Because nothing says "relaxing bath" like a stuffy old dude staring at you.

Android mode: unlocked! Starting next week, Finney's gonna have his pancreas (via this insulin pump) in a pouch outside of his body, you guys! He's wanted this since we were in the hospital and I'm so glad it only took 3 months. While his pancreas does still spit out a little bit of insulin, which is widely known as the honeymoon phase, it will eventually stop working completely and he will be fully dependent on insulin for the rest of his life. This is just one step in making his care more manageable, and we are so thankful the technology has come so far. Now to find a cure! #typef1nn

A year ago, I just thought today’s date was uneventful and didn’t carry meaning. Now that Finney has been diagnosed with #type1diabetes, I know it as the birthday of the man who discovered synthetic insulin and changed the fate of everyone with T1D. Dr. Bunting’s discovery saved Finney’s life. Until 1921, T1D was a literal death sentence. I’ll celebrate his birthday (and World Diabetes Day) today and every November 14 while wearing my blue and thinking of all the people I’ve met along the way, or discovered we have a shared connection with T1D. (And rainbows, because who doesn’t like rainbows?!? #notAustralians)

If you haven’t seen Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales, you should check them out. The drawings are fantastic and the writing is quite funny. Up next, Big Bad Ironclad.

After midnight and I finally got a picture. It was a surprising emotional night at the @jdrf_az gala. I wasn’t prepared for tears and meeting an amazing group of people. I have plans for next year already and can’t wait to support the kiddos I met and one @typef1nn who I especially love who shows me every day just how brave and strong he is in so many ways. It’s almost halfway through Diabetes Awareness Month and I’ve stayed pretty silent, but only because I have so very much to say and little time or ability to get it out. Diabetes is hard. There’s no cure. There’s only treatment. Finney will treat himself in invasive and inconvenient ways for the rest of his life. We’re only 3 months in, but we’ve learned so much that I never knew before having a son with this terrible disease. It’s not just about shots. It’s not just about blood sugar. It’s not just about his food. His body will do things we don’t expect, even when we are treating him in the prescribed way. Diabetes doesn’t cooperate and it doesn’t care what you do. It will throw a wrench in your life any time it likes. I didn’t intend to go on and on, but I’ve kept a lot close to the chest recently and it needs to come out eventually. We’re tired. We’re overwhelmed. We’re getting by and we won’t stop doing what we can to keep our Finney healthy and happy. He’s just so worth it. #typef1nn
