February: Baby Love - Welcome Baby Piper!





As some of you may remember from last summer, our very own Courtney Beall, Media Director, missed camp due to the arrival of someone very special!
Courtney and her husband, Sean, welcomed Piper Sue into the world on August 14, 2009 at 12:04 a.m. She weighed 7 lbs., 9 oz. and was 21 inches long. Mom reports that Piper is a very mellow baby who loves to look around and watch people. She also loves pink and the Oregon Ducks! We know you'll think she's as cute as we do ... enjoy the pictures and next time you talk to Courtney you can weigh-in on the Ducks outfit!

How does diabetes fit into friendship, love and dating? This month, we'll take a look at what it means to love someone with diabetes. Check out what we found:
