Christmas day was incredible. Both boys loved their presents and we spent time with our family. Logan’s favorite gift was his Mickey Mouse Santa brought him. Lucas received so many Legos!!! Honestly the boy has an obsession with building Lego creations 🙂 I love it! Santa left a special note for Lucas telling him he was proud of him for being so good and to give Logan extra hugs and kisses. I’m fairly certain Lucas gives Logan a hundred hugs and kisses each day.
Everyone was full of smiles. Brett and I did have some tears when Logan was napping during the day. We just couldn’t fathom everything that was happening. Late Christmas night was also rough for me. I am a huge Christmas fanatic and the night/day after is always hard, but this year was especially hard. Thankfully Brett lets me keep up our Christmas decorations as long as I want :). I will start putting a few things away, but most of it will stay up until Valentines.
Late in the day Christmas, Logan started running a slight temperature. By morning he was breathing through his mouth and occasionally snoring. We took him into the doctor just to be on the safe side. We were wondering if it was an ear infection, but everything turned out to be just fine. He has some congestion in his nose but no ear infection and his temperature went away.
The 27th was a quiet day. We just chilled out in our jammies all day. Insurance approved Logan for Synages (RSV shots) and we received the medicine minus epinephrine. Apparently there is a shortage but we should be receiving it soon as well. Whenever it shows up, a nurse will come out to administer the shots. I about fell over at the cost. $3700 for the one dose before insurance. Shoot, even after insurance its still over $700. For one shot!!!! Ugh.
We didn’t do anything on our bucket list for a few days. We just kinda chilled out and I enjoyed the time with both boys. I need to find more activities though…
Today we watched Rio and Logan tried popcorn. It was pretty funny. At first he liked the taste but then changed his mind.
We received some sand, sea shells, and sand dollars from a wonderful family in Texas 🙂 We will post pictures soon of Logan touching the sand and shells. He always seems so stunned when he touches new things that are cold. Doesn’t matter what it is…if it is cold he just doesn’t know what to think! We also received a blanket made by B4SMA. They make a special blanket for each SMA baby. We will be taking a picture of it with him tomorrow.
I am going to start a list of things not to forget about Logan. Simple things like how he will sneeze two times in a row and then go “o”. Or how he always chats during “diaper change time”. Or how he loves for us to help him sit up straight like a big boy. I know these are things I most likely will never forget, but just in case my memory starts to fail, I will have something to jump start it.
Last thing 🙂 Anyone have suggestions on what activities I can do with both boys? Lucas has all next week off before school starts up again and I want to make the most of it!
