Day 18 A very special Sib of a D-Kid

Sunday, the 18th was my oldest daughter's birthday, she turned 10!   She is Kortnie's big sister.  She takes a backseat to Kortnie and her Diabetes way too often. 

Kortnie was diagnosed with Diabetes 10 days before Stasia's 7th birthday.  It kind of put a damper on her birthday, but she didn't complain. 

Instead of using this post to do the blog prompts, I'm gonna talk up my biggest girl. 

She turned the big 10 this weekend, and we are making a week long celebration of it.  Friday night she had 4 of her friends over and we made let them make up their own pizzas, we had popcorn, chips, a veggie dipper tray, ice cream, and brownies.  They danced to cool music and Justin Bieber, they watched the movie "Brave" and painted nails.  Her friends all went home around 9pm.  It was a good time, and she was gracious enough to let her little sister join in on the fun. 
Saturday I took her and Kortnie to go see Breaking Dawn 2, yeah, a little PG13 for my girls but I made them close their eyes for the too sexy stuff.  We had a great time, I bought them the $20 Twilight keeper soda cups and popcorn bucket, we waited in line for 45 minutes to get in the theater, we got good seats and saw lots of people we knew from our town.  It was fun!
Sunday was her real birthday and we went to church and had a laid back birthday at home, we went out as a family for ice cream cones, and I made her her favorite homemade Mac&Cheese. 
Monday she was back to school, so I went and picked her up and took her out to a fancy cafe for lunch, just her and I we had so much fun, this was a picture from lunch yesterday.  After lunch, her dad and brother met us at her school and we handed out cupcakes to her class.
Thursday she'll have more presents and special chocolate pie at her Grandma's house, it's Thanksgiving, and we'll be thankful for so many things, but at the top of my list are my kids, especially my big girl!
She is 10 now, in 4th grade, she loves Softball, Basketball, and Swim Team.  She loves Justin Bieber too.  She does so well in school, so well that she helps tutor some of her classmates after school.  She says she wants to be a teacher or a doctor when she grows up.  She likes to play school with  her siblings and friends.  She is beautiful!  She helps Kortnie with her diabetes and is always concerned. She knows what the blood sugar numbers mean too.  She loves to bake and cook and is getting pretty good at it.  She likes to help me with my daycare kids.  She rides her bike and goes to Zumba with me.  She is tenderhearted and loving.  She drives me crazy sometimes, and I think she is hormonal, but I wouldn't have her be any thing other than what she is.  She is my first born and was always the best baby, hardly ever cried and slept through the night at 6 weeks old (well she'd sleep a good 6 hour stretch).  She doesn't get sick very often either.  She is our biggest girl and we love her so much!
