Remember your baby’s first or second Christmas. Oh yes you do. All those presents for one little baby. All the excitement that you were a little family and you had to open everything for the baby and were so happy and excited, Meanwhile baby is happy to play with the wrapping and boxes. As the years go by the kids understand Christmas and are more excited about those presents and you are getting day by day updates to the Christmas list. But it can be tough for little ones especially those who have special needs who have no idea why they are going to another lunch or being asked to sit next to Santa and say cheese or why all these people are here at my house sitting around the tree. Last year Christmas just came and went for our little miss. She loved the presents and toys but hid from visitors and there wasn’t any understanding of what was going on.
But this year with a year of preschool under her belt and lots of Christmas craft, songs and activities we are seeing this growing awareness that something special is happening. And so I’ve decided that even if our annual santa photo is a fizzer that at least I have this photo of my cute little miss the year she discovered Christmas.
