And my other Christmas gift is something I jokingly said to Mr P I wanted this morning but had no expectation at all of getting. I have a tradition of making a stollen for Christmas breakfast, and there was a horde of relatives sitting around my breakfast table when I suddenly became aware of a little voice beside me saying insistently, "Mur! Mur! Mur!" Cub had run out of stollen and was indicating his displeasure by using his VERY FIRST WORD!!!!! Yes, that does deserve all those exclamation marks, because I have never had a first word before, and there were eight other witnesses so I know I didn't imagine it.
So that's my Christmas.
