Daniel turns 4!

Though he doesn’t really understand the concept of birthdays yet, Daniel sure enjoyed the attention and presents and fun of his special day.



He LOVES Elmo, so of course he was lucky enough to get Elmo cupcakes as his treat.  They were a huge hit!



This kid is so much fun!  The personality just oozes out of him.  I love how excited he gets!




He is also super curious and definitely one determined kid.




He is loved and adored by everyone!



A few things about Daniel:

  • He is getting ready for his 4th set of ear tubes.
  • He knows his colors!!
  • He is busy busy busy.  Anyone who watches him says, “I don’t know how you do it.  He just doesn’t stay still at all!”
  • He is getting to be a better eater again, but still loves his yogurt and bread.
  • He is much better about keeping his hearing aids in (at least, when his ears aren’t full of fluid).
  • His speech has improved exponentially just this year.  He is making great strides and saying lots of new words!!
  • He loves to remove his diaper…and I’m sure I don’t have to give you any more details about that!
  • He is a climber.  I have found him up on the countertops (on multiple occasions) exploring the contents of various cupboards.
  • He loves Legos (Duplos) and shuts himself in his room to sit and play with them.


Here is a fun little video of Daniel identifying a few colors.  He knows many more than this, though!

Colors!! He also knows orange, pink, brown, black and white. Progress, baby!! #smallvictories Jared Ripplinger
