Christmas

We had a lovely and relaxing Christmas. We were alone this year for Christmas Eve, which is the day we celebrate. I had to work till 1 pm, and surprisingly enough, a lot of people were buying shoes!
In the afternoon Jultomten came by with presents. About the same time, the first vomit of the day started… Along came a fever and all that other good stuff. Vince was a little champ as always and stayed relatively happy throughout the evening:

Not too sure about that Santa guy (Jultomten) who happened to come just as Bookie went and got the newspaper 😉

Opening a present. Holding on tightly to his hammer that was part of an other present. He held on to that thing all Christmas.

He really got into opening presents, this one he started to open on his own. And it was a:

Spinning Zebra from Fisher Price (nope, I am not being endorsed for this), I think Vince joined an other 50 or so bonuschromosome kids his age from Sweden who alll got this for Christmas. It was recommended on a DS site, and it is really great for gross and fine motor skills. He loved it from the start. Even with the fever and after vomiting he was riding himself sweaty on the Zebra.

He keeps checking himself out in the mirror as he is playing. That is why he keeps looking to the right.

Yesterday Vince started to feel worse and worse. He could not keep anything down. So instead of a trip to Vienna to meet up for Christmas celebrations with the rest of Bookie’s family, we took a trip to the overfull ER at the University hospital. Thankfully our little kid loves the electrolyte water, so he was not dehydrated, so after a loooooong wait and a general consultation we were sent home. Vince fell a sleep immediately. Throughout the night he had a fever around 40c, that is a lot in F too. This morning he seems a bit better and at least could keep some toast down. He is still sleepy and cranky. The only thing that keeps him happy is snuggling with him or letting him wash his hands. For hours. He loves it. He throws the biggest tantrum when you think it is time to leave. He sat outside the door to the bathroom and screamed for a good 10 min, before I gave up and we went washing the hands again. No clue where he learned that?

  15. I am sorry that Vince was sick for Christmas. It doesn’t look like it slowed him down to much with the present opening though! He is such a handsome boy. We were in Vienna for Christmas about 6 years ago, SO beautiful! I hope to return some day, maybe with warmer weather.

  16. I hope he feels better soon…even when he’s ill, he’s a beautiful little boy! Happy holidays!

  17. So sorry to hear that Vince was sick over Christmas. I thought the growling potty-wolf was funny too! Love the Zebra ride! Your Santa…he was vaguely familiar to me…hmmm.
