Just a quick note to say that we survived both the baby’s first Hanukah and his first Christmas.  As predicted, the baby was much more interested in the wrapping paper than in the ridiculous number of gifts he received- he actually fell asleep before all of the gifts were even opened on Christmas morning.  Given the onslaught of prezzies, I was relieved that the husband and I decided not to give M gifts this year.  It just seemed unnecessary and in synch with our attempts to be nurturing rather than hovering- overwhelming the baby with gifts seemed like it would be more for our benefit than for his.

Since we are still on vacay with my family in the polar opposite of Type-A City, Hippie Town, I’ll be offline for a bit.  But I hope everyone has/had a wonderful holiday.
