Dear TigerOne,

Happy first Christmas, my sweet boy!

We are spending the holiday with your Auntie, Uncle, and cousins in Sacramento. Your littlest cousin is romping around, he is 3 and he calls you his “Cousint”. He is really looking forward to a time when you are older and can play together, and has promised to teach you how to eat yogurt when you get bigger.

This morning you spent a long time in your bassinet transfixed by the Yule log flickering on the TV. Later in the afternoon we headed over to have dinner with your Great Grandparents and your Great Auntie. How cool is it that you get to have so many Great family members in your life? You weren’t very impressed with your gifts; a ladybug rattle, a travel sleep sheep, a monkey shaped binky holder, a shark onesie, a pirate octopus doll called Captain Calamari, a giant stuffed gorilla, and a of couple cute hats. Not a bad haul for someone not even 2 months old! I think you’ll appreciate the toys in the coming months, and since you are a fiend for white noise the sleep sheep will be of great use on the way home.

This year I think I you got to enjoy the true meaning of Christmas, spending time with family. In the next few years toy fever will probably take over and it will be a while before you realize that Christmas isn’t just about Santa and sweet treats and twinkly lights. It’s about fun traditions, making new memories, remembering good times, and sharing space with the folks who love you most. This is the beginning of a lifetime of magical Christmases together.

    Please don’t forget to mention that he has also spent Christmas with his Great Grandparents, and Great Auntie. Not many kids get to do that! I’d like to think that we get to be included among the people who love him most!

      Oh man, of course! This is what happens when I write posts in the twilight hours before dawn. It is so wonderful that he has you all in his life. Will totally update the note!
