The dreaded last-minute Christmas knitting project is finished and currently flung over my loveseat.  Tomorrow I'll look it over for loose threads and then stuff it into a gift bag only to have it pulled back out again hours later by my almost-three-year-old niece who will probably be all, "A SWEATER?  THANKS, AUNTIE LAMESAUCE."  But I bask for now in the sweet glow of accomplishment.

I'm trying to convince my dog that there is such a thing as the Christmas Cat.  Gotta love dogs, they are so gullible this way.  He's now keeping watch in my picture window emitting the occasional low-pitched warning "rrrf."  The Christmas Cat is obviously not welcome in our small yard, that evil fucker.

So -- what do I have to say other than the above nonsense?  Nothing whatsoever. 

Hope everyone who celebrates it has a lovely Christmas and everyone who doesn't has a lovely weekend.  I will be spending the next day or two with my parents, my grandmother, and my brother and family.  There will be shouting arguments over who left the baby unattended and where the toddler's socks went and also why no one is helping to SET the bloody TABLE goddammit and all that nice traditional Christmas stuff.  I have slotted into the "fewest presents ever" category of the family now that I'm the lovely spinster aunt so I will probably spend a good part of tomorrow helping care for my niece and nephew and entertaining them with their new toys.  It's like parenting without any of the glory (or responsibility, thank fuck.)

Love you all.  So glad I've stumbled back into fandom this year.  Mwah.

So when my two nieces were born (1 month apart -- one to each of my two brothers) 2 and a half years ago I gleefully posted photos. It just occurred to me that I hadn't done the same for my sweet wee nephew, born in late May.

In case you can't tell from the photo I've spent part of the past year becoming obsessed with my new digital SLR camera and amateur photography.  Cute baby *H* gets all the benefits with lots of (better) photos of him, far more I took of his big sister at the same stage. BTW, if you've done the math, you know baby *H* is closing in on four months. He is over 20 lbs. We make 'em big in my family, I guess.  I loves him so much.  When he sneezes he does a little cute sigh after, like "Life is HARD!" and he is smiley and full of baby belly laughs.
