Until recently, John Thomas did not have much interest or ability to draw much of anything. This past month, we've seen him start to write some of the letters in his name, and some rudimentary stick figures.
John Thomas finished the fall session of skating lessons in December, and we put him in the following session. He can glide on the ice occasionally, but only shows his speed when sufficiently motivated.
Christmas was very exciting this year. It was his first year to be excited about Santa. Last year he was frightened of Santa, and asked Mom and Dad to tell him not to come. This year, shortly after we started decorating for Christmas, he asked Mommy to call Santa right away to make sure he would come. We met Santa at the mall the first day he arrived. John Thomas seemed the most excited kid there. He was jumping up and down as soon as Santa arrived, and moved to hug him right away.
For New Years Eve, we had a few friends and their kids over for a little party. Amazingly, everyone managed to stay awake until midnight.
Overall, it's been a pretty good month or so. Knock on wood that the rest of winter will continue on this way.
