A Year in Pictures

Tomorrow is Lily's one year Dia-Birthday.  I'm feeling a bit sad and reflective tonight.  It's been quite a year.  Rather than spending my time writing a post that I don't really feel like writing (I'm just not feeling like talking tonight), I thought I'd share with all of you some pictures from the past year.  I've been looking at them and wondering if other people see the things in them that I do.  So, the year in pictures:

Lily, one month before diagnosis

Two weeks before diagnosis

Lily, the day of diagnosis

Lily, two weeks after diagnosis

Lily, two months after

Lily, three months after

Lily, one year later

What a difference a year makes!  As much as I wish Lily weren't diabetic and that she didn't have to deal with this for the rest of her life, I wouldn't trade her for the world.  To me, she's perfect just as she is and I thank God every day that I was given such a precious, wonderful gift!


  1. She is absolutely beautiful! Just perfect. Sorry you're feeling so sad... My husband and I were out of town with Elise on her 1 year anniversary, and didn't realize that we had missed it until the next day. It kind of made things a little easier, I think. This time around, her 2 year anniversary falls on the day before I have the baby, so who knows, maybe we'll be so busy, we'll forget again!

  2. She is beautiful and oh so perfect. I'm so sorry you are sad - I get sad just thinking about Nate's 1 year and it's not even here yet. I totally understand. You've come a long way in a year and look how beautiful and happy she is. Like you said - she's perfect!
