Christmas for Brayden

If you think getting a gift for someone is hard...try finding something for Brayden. All of our great ideas we gave to family who got him some great things, anything with lights or music is good. We got him a soothing noise machine for his room (he loves the sound of the ocean).

With all of the hustle and bustle he did great. Seeming to find a nap whenever he needed it.

While he did great, it is still hard to not have him fully participate in Christmas. One of the best things about Christmas is having kids...all of their excitement...their anticipation of everything Christmas...their joy. Brayden is there, being good but no riping into the presents, squeals of joy, excitement about Christmas or running around with cousins.
I want him to know how exciting Christmas is and be in on the action.

He was in his own way. Some sweet moments:
Brayden's cousin, who is the same age as Brayden (only a couple of weeks apart), offered to push Brayden. She did great and he really like it. I loved it.

And Brayden with his Great-Grandmother, my Grammy, getting some snuggles by the Christmas tree...they just looked so cozy.

Love the pics! Looks like Brayden was enjoying himself.

I know what you mean about wishing he got into the holiday and all the excitement, but as you said, he enjoyed the day in his own way.
