Nine months and his first Christmas.

Today was Christmas just the way we like it: get up to wrestle a happy little boy, open a lot of presents (and eat a lot of paper), have some raspberry waffles from the new waffle iron Mama bought Papa, take a nap (Papa), then spend a couple of hours in the park watching the ducks and the people. After the park, dinner at a friendly diner. The boy had an egg, a banana, and lots of flirting with the waitresses and customers. Then, we tested out the new bathtub toys: a mama duck and three ducklings, four colored boats from Grammy and Pop, a waterproof book, a green frog, plus the old standbys: two yogurt containers.

See the pictures here, including some of his nine month birthday on December 19.
