Gifts  
First off, I have a Yuletide fic! And it's amazing and beautiful and something I didn't know was possible, so all of you should go and read Operation Reunification, a Das Leben Der Anderen | The Lives of Others fic by a wonderful anonymous author.

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.

Congratulations! Somehow this is reminding me of nothing more than The Iron King:

'Madam, Madam,' she cried, 'he has talked.'
'Really?' the Queen replied. 'And what did he say?'
'He banged the table, Madam, and said: "Want!"'
A look of pride crossed Isabella's beautiful face.
...
'Well, Messire my son, so you have said: "Want," said Isabella, leaning down to stroke his cheek. 'I'm pleased that it should have been the first word you uttered: it's the speech of a king.'

LOL! That is an excellent quote. He does do quite a good Little Emperor impression sometimes.

It has made our Christmas here, that's for sure. He did a pretty enthusiastic 'ca! ca!' at the neighbour's cats today as well. I might start to believe this is real soon.

Sounds like a wonderful Christmas. :) So exciting about Cub's first word!

And I'm excited to go and read a Lives of Others fic when I get a chance.

I'm sure you'll enjoy the fic, it's very true to the film and characters. And it has been an excellent Christmas here. I hope you've had a good time too!
