It's still in progress, but I couldn't help but jot down a few thoughts while he's napping.
His Grammy sent a rocking horse from Florida, and it has an animated head and tail. He's a little too small to stay on it on his own, but he thinks it's really cool. Diana got him some neat toys at the last consignment sale, as well as a little rolling thing with gears. He got a ton of cute clothes, but you know, like any kid, he's not that interested. Of course, the wrapping paper alone is probably is favorite thing!
Christmas for me lost a lot of its charm for me in the last ten years or so. It seemed to always be marked with drama and dread. I also seemed to get sick around it every year, but this is two years now I've escaped that. But when you have a baby, it's all different. The best gift you can have is that little human. And with less than a year, he doesn't know anything about gifts or anything, just the joy of being with his mom and dad. It's kind of a Christmas reset for me.
We're off to Joe and Kristen's for dinner soon, where Simon can play with two other Christmas miracles. Be safe, warm and content!
