Up for Air

While we haven't been doing much of anything around here, it's been nice not feeling the self-induced pressure to post something here.  I'm sipping a bit of coffee at the moment, thankful for the desire to drink my favorite beverage again. Yea for the quick approach of my second trimester next week!

Our Christmas was quiet and uneventful, with the traditional feast at my parents' on Christmas eve.
Thankfully, my family held back a bit when it came to spoiling Soren with gifts, well, except for what one of my brothers and his wife got him.
Yep, we're the owners of one of THOSE things now!  To be fair, S loves this, and it's small enough to fit in our living room, providing a great outlet for him to get some indoor cardio after dinner each night.  His little cheeks get all red from all the jumping and tossing himself around in there.
(the spoliers, I mean, his new favorite uncle and aunt)
Our Christmas at home was nice too, with some tasty oatmeal and stewed apples and the opening of a few gifts.
Santa brought a Playmobil fire and rescue set and police car for Soren, which he enjoys playing with.  My brothers had Playmobil toys growing up, and they seemed to withstand the wear and tear that boys wreak on playthings.
He is a bit young for all the little pieces, but I ended up just putting them away until he's older and is not so prone to chewing them.
The best gift for us? The silence that accompanies a child engrossed in new toys!
In case I don't get back to this space in the next few days, I wish you a very happy, healthy New Year! Any fun plans for New Year's Eve?
