Holidays and time passing

Well, the holidays are over and not a moment too soon. Do you think I'm a dork for putting the tree decorations away Christmas afternoon? Well, at least the dishes are still out. But not for long. I plan to put those away this weekend.

It's not that it was a bad holiday season. In fact, it was quite pleasant. It just wasn't spectacular. I mean, it's a lot to ask to have the best holiday EVER each time, isn't it? Thanksgiving was here and we had about 10 for dinner. The house was full of babies and toddlers. That was actually a lot of fun. Watching them interact was a blast. They all get on quite well. Christmas was quiet, as usual. Next year, I think G will really be starting to "get it" and it should be getting really fun. The family party was last saturday but the timing didn't work for us as it was in the morning. By the time C got home from work and G. woke from his nap, it was over. Oh well. We might host next year as we'll have the baby and it might be easier than trying to travel. We'll see how it goes.

All's well on the baby front -- last u/s showed him measuring one week ahead which isn't surprising as G measured ahead for his entire gestation. I've started talking to G a little bit about a sibling/new baby but he doesn't much care. I'm not sure how much he can really understand at this point anyway. It's so far away, it probably doesn't much matter.

In G's world things are just fabulous. His vocabulary is finally starting to grow leaps and bounds. I caught myself from cussing last week when someone took a parking space I had my eye on and now when he want's a laugh from me he yells, "AWWWWW FUDGE!". He's starting to get that tape recorder quality in his vocabulary -- we've got to start being careful with the words we're choosing!
