Anyway anyway anyway! How have you been this past month? I have been doing the usual mix of nothing and everything, and have somehow managed to not post any and/or none of it*.
*And at some point in the past month, I lost my grasp on the English language. So be it.
My last draft had a little story in it that I still definitely need to share: we gave Henry a pickle at dinner, just to see what he'd think. He took a half bite, so a little flap of pickle was loose, but still attached at one end.
Henry looked at it, then looked at me. 'Door', he said.
Then he poked the door - 'knock knock'. Followed by 'hello?' It was the cutest thing ever.
Well, cutest ever, unless you also count this picture:
Henry and Eddie (Edda and Gerry's son), both looking super Icelandic in woolly jumpers. They came and visited after the mini-Christmas festival thing that happens when the tree in town gets lit. It was great to see them, and they are now back in Scotland visiting family and friends for Eddie's first Christmas.
Also in the category of cutest ever:
Henry is getting really into this self-portrait business.
Um um um, what else did I want to tell you about? Vicki's sisters arrive this week, they're staying for Christmas and New Year's, and my Mum will be coming on the 30th (which is my 29th birthday, wowsers).
We put up the Christmas tree the other day, which felt like an achievement. Henry helped me untangle lights...
... and put up the decorations...
Henry is going to get his hair cut this afternoon, so I'd like to try to get a Christmassy family photo sometime... Heck, I'll settle for not Christmassy, just all three (four, if we include Nina) of us looking decent and in focus. I'll share if it ever happens.
