Just... Wow. That's all I can say to describe our first Christmas with Callista. She had such a good time. Of course she had the most gifts out of everyone, being the spoiled little girl that she is. Her favorite gifts include a Dance and Learn puppy, a rain stick, and a giraffe with jingle bells on it. On Christmas Eve, she slept through most of the action, but woke up in time to play with Grandpa Lynch. I think her six cousins wear her out with all the action going on!
She was wide awake for the afternoon activities! Although she couldn't open her own presents, she enjoyed unwrapping in general, for herself and everyone else. Every time she would get a new present, she would look at her dad and if he smiled, so would she.
We celebrated Christmas morning at home, and she slept through most of it too! Of course, I can't help myself but show off her adorable outfit. Apparently it was the only one Walmart/Sam's Club had because I saw a hundred other baby pictures in it as well LOL.
We are back to normal life in just a few days, as my wonderful vacation is soon coming to an end. I'll be sad to leave her! We have myelo clinic on January 4th. I am praying for a good visit. She will have an MRI and a renal scan as well as our regular visits to neuro, ortho, and physical medicine. I feel like these visits too often focus on how far behind she is rather than how far she's come since the last visit. We are hoping her head control to be good enough for leg braces within the next 3-6 months! I'll update after our visit Friday :)
Have a great and healthy new year everyone!! <3<3<3
