Holiday Catch Up

My Mom was in town so I had little time on the computer to blog.
This entry will be my catch up blog..........

Dec 21 2008 ---- For the first time EVER my little man was able to sit himself up from a laying position. Until this day he has always had to roll all of the way onto his tummy and then push up to sit. I was changing his diaper and he wanted up, he rolled part way to his side and used his arms to push up, twist and he was sitting! This is such wonderful news - this is showing us he is gaining muscle strength. He has yet to sit straight up -- BUT it is coming!!!!!!

Dec 24 2008 ---- Christmas Eve -- we headed to dinner at the in-laws new home. It was very yummy! Next stop, we all piled into the van and headed to the Christmas Eve train. Zach didn't know what to think at first his SPD kicked in and when the train started moving he had to close his eyes. I believe it was a combination of the movement, noise, and many people. I talked to him while his eyes were shut and explained what was going on, slowly he would open his eyes for a few seconds at a time. It got to the point where he kept them open and even waved to people as we passed by. Again even more wonderful news about Zachary!!!

Dec 25 2008 ---- Christmas Day -- What a fun day! Our family stayed in our jammies all day, I have to say this was the most relaxed day we have had in a while. Zoe had to help Zach with his presents at first but he quickly got a hang of it - shredding the paper into such small pieces. As soon as one present was opened he would quietly ask "mo?" and move on to another one.

Our holidays so far have been wonderful and filled with so much positive on the Zachary front.
I hope that all of your holidays going just as well!!!
