Party Like You’re Two!!

Two years ago, I was snuggling a brand new baby.  Little did I know then what a ham Daniel would turn into!  This kid is so full of personality, he’s nearly bursting at the seams!



All the attention from siblings and Grandma and Grandpa was just egging him on.



I know this is not the greatest picture, but can you see the excitement?!?!  LOVE!!!



We let Daniel dig into his own cake again this year.  He taught us a few things.  First, a little caution goes a long way when a grown-up hands you an entire plate of cake.  Best to make sure it’s not broccoli hiding under all that frosting!



Second, once you’re sure it’s OK, please remember that cake is best eaten two-fisted!



Third, there’s never a wrong time for a round of “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.”



And last, but certainly not least – no matter how difficult it may be, don’t forget to at least ACT like you’re having fun!



We love us some Daniel!!  He is such a hoot and a true joy to have in our lives.

Some of his latest accomplishments:

  • Almost full-time walking
  • He loves to do the actions for “The Wise Man and the Foolish Man” as well as “Popcorn Popping”
  • He signs milk!
  • He’s initiating communication by signing his wants

We have been blessed by Daniel’s presence in our family more than we can ever express.  Happy birthday little dude!
