The festivities were a little much for Logan. He got very overwhelmed with all the people and noise and thus, he slept thru most of Christmas.
He did make a brief appearance at the dinner table though.
He is still only comfortable with Mom or Dad holding him. He may let someone else hold him for a few minutes but then it is back to Mom and Dad.
We had one little scare towards the ends of the evening. Logan began a blood curddling scream and turned very blue. I have not heard this type of scream from him before. I thought in my gut that we were going to the ER. Scott got him calmed down in the basement away from everyone, it took awhile to do this. We think he just got very overwhelmed with the lots of people because the crying started when some people were huddling over him and we think he just got scared. I have to say though, that the last time there were this many people and this much noise he was in the ICU, poor baby.
But Logan was a very good boy this year and Santa was very generous to him. He got more presents than anyone. A couple new soft blankets to snuggle in, a dancing Mickey Mouse, Baby Ugg boots, some toys, and then some more toys, a play kitchen to share with his big brother Ethan, lots of clothes, and some soft baby books.
Thank you everyone for all your support this year. It has been one rollercoaster and I couldn’t have done it without all of you. Merry Christmas and to all, and a special wish to all the Heart families out there, A Healthy and Happy New Year.
Maybe just maybe in this new year it will become more widely known that congenital heart disease is the #1 CAUSE OF INFANT DEATH in the United States. The more we know the more that we can do. Please visit 1in100.org for more information.
…and to all the children, GOODNIGHT.
