First movie and great trip

Oliver saw his first movie on Friday, accompanied by almost 20 family members, including cousins, aunts, uncles and his great grandparents. We had a great time! We saw Skyfall. Yes, I know, not your typical first movie for a 2 year old, but you try convincing 20 adults to go to Finding Nemo 3D. ;) Ollie doesn't know or understand anything about violence/guns anyway. He doesn't have the processing capacity for it. His enjoyment came from the loud sounds, the car chases and being around so many people. Besides, he slept through two-thirds of the movie! We brought his cuddlebug wheelchair, but he only sat there for 2 minutes before we took him out and Chris held him throughout.

We had a great 3.5 day trip to Long Island. We weren't sure how being out of the house for so many days would go, but Ollie since birth has been a go-with-the-flow kind of kid, and this trip was no different.

The hardest part of the trip was actually the ferry trip to LI on Wednesday when he had two seizures and two diarrhea blow outs in the new van. After that the rest of the week was much better!

Ollie slept like an angel in his inflatable bed and was held and cuddled by the entire family. Including his Great Grandma and Poppy.

He was alert and awake for most of Thanksgiving except dinner itself. :) Here he is "eating" turkey. I had planned on drawing a turkey on his pediasure bag, but I forgot.

This Thanksgiving we are especially thankful to have the love and support from so many wonderful people. Thank you for being part of Oliver's Team.
