We are still here! Between Christmas excitement and then sickness hitting our home after sadly you have all been left hanging. To make up for it we have a lot of fun pictures to share with everyone.
Christmas was amazing. The highlight for Deeds was the giant Sock Monkey holding the stocking from Santa and the handmade Sock Monkey blanket my cousin made for us complete with hood and built in mittens. We went to church with Grandma and Grandpa and then enjoyed Christmas dinner over at their house. The kids did fantastic and Jeremy and I were really happy about how well the entire day went. When we got home that afternoon I sat with Deeds and did the new puzzles he got. He was a BIG fan and we already picked up another new one for his birthday in 2 weeks. (SHH DON’T TELL)
The next day is when the over-stimulation and meltdowns hit hard. He’d calmed down a bit by that afternoon but we had another family dinner and it took almost the entire time for Deeds to relax and interact with people. It was even family he knew well and usually adores to be around. The low point was when his uncle said hi to him and he screamed and curled up under a chair. Thank goodness for Magpie, the iPad and wonderful family.
Now we are getting things cleaned up and all the Christmas decorations are being put away. I think our little guy will be happy to have things organized again.
