We saw almost all of our nieces and nephews sometime during all of our Christmas celebrations.  It is interesting to watch how they act or react to Christian and some of the things that he does.  His older cousin and one who is about the same age play together really great, but it’s hard to watch him around them because he just doesn’t quite seem to fit in.  Well, unless there is running and/or chasing involved he usually seems like an outsider around them.  It’s kind of sad to watch…However, then there’s Olivia and another younger cousin who just follow him around and watch him so closely, not because he is acting different or “weird” but because they want to see what he is doing – to do what he does.  Now that just makes my heart smile.  I hope to them he will always be cool, even when they know of the challenges he faces.
