I invited Aunty Kate and Uncle Justin over for dinner, mam and dad didn't seem to mind, they were cool. In fact they hung out with us for a while to, just long enough for the old lady to make the food and serve it and the old geezer to pour the wine.
Uncle Justin and I hung out at the end of the table, in a strange orange haze, man, what was in that wine. Not sure the food can have been up to much as Uncle Justin appeared to be trying to bite chunks out of Aunty Kates head. Must have words with mum about her cooking.

Christmas came and went in the blink of an eye. Atticus loved all the wrapping paper and only later notices that new toys were around the house. Mama was unfortunately in bed due to a dreaded migraine for the best part of the festivities but Tata occupied Atti for the day and it all went smoothly.
We were still recovering somewhat from the jet lag of our flight from the UK but Atticus didn't let it stop him at all. He had several Christmas outfits for the occasion and wore each of them for a portion of the day - looking mighty adorable in all three.
Surprisingly Atti didn't take that much notice of the lovely tree. I totally expected it to be pulled over at some stage during the festivities but it held up well. He was interested, like all kids, in all of the brightly coloured boxes underneath it however. Thankfully with him not crawling yet it mad things a lot easier for us.

Atticus met Deda for the first time a couple of days after we arrived in London. It was a very, very happy event for both boys. Atticus took immediately to Deda and vice versa. That was great for me as I could pass on feeding duties and cuddling duties to someone else for a while.
