New years/vacation in Ohio

As I said in my previous post we had an impromptu mini vacation for New Years.
Joe found out that he had off Friday and Monday so that made it a 4 day weekend. We left on Thur afternoon. It was a 4 1/2 hour drive and Emily did so good!

If you have a child with multiple needs you know that leaving your comfort zone is very difficult. We had to pack a lot of things to make sure Emily would be comfortable. We have a mini van and took the back row out and it was FULL.

That little stinker slept pretty good too. At home we have such a hard time getting her to stay asleep but at her grandparents she was such an angel. She did not cry one time! She is not an extremely fussy girl anymore BUT she defiantly has her moments---except at grandma and grandpa's house!!

She got her very first(prob her last too haha) sink bath in the very same sink that her grandma b did!

One night she was so happy and talking up a storm! She was making the most funny sounds and facial expressions too! 
Tell Charlie about her puppy, Violet.

Talking to Charlie on the phone.

You listening grandma??

Cheering on the cards! Even though they lost, she loves watching sports!!

Holding grandpa's arm while she sleeps. 

The best part was meeting ,Ava, Emily's newest cousin!

Lego liked her chair too!

We had such a great time and can't wait to go back!!
