My sweet Daniel,
Here is our first picture together. You are just perfect in every way. So precious.
Today you turned one! You are growing up so fast, I can't believe that a year has come and gone. I have treasured all of our moments together from the late night feedings and diaper changes to the cuddling and kisses.
You are such a sweet and gentle little guy. You are very mellow and just go with the flow. Now, that's my kind of baby. You seem to only cry when you are hungry and need to be changed. At night you'd wake up to be changed and eat, then go straight to sleep. Aww.......what a blessing! I think God knew we needed a gentle little guy in our crazy bunch of kids. I'm so blessed to be your mama!
Some special things about you are:
~You got your first tooth when you were 5 months.
~ You currently have 8 1/2 teeth. 8 1/2 because your top left molar is half way out on one side.
~ Rice Cereal and veggies were your first baby foods that you tried. Fruit soon followed as well as baby Puffs.
~ We soon realized that you loved homemade baby food after you refused to it it from the jars. I made fresh veggies and you ate it up without a fight. Yay!!
~You love to give kisses.
~You can wave Hi & Bye, with both hands at the same time.
~You give High-Fives!
~You can Clap!
~Started army crawling at 7 1/2 months.
~ Started real crawling at 9 months!
~You are cruising around the furniture. But haven't started walking yet.
~You have taken one step and then decided it's faster to just crawl.
~You say dadada, gaw, aah, yaaa, and a couple of times ma.
~You are very serious and seem to always be thinking.
~Sometimes it can be a challenge to get you to look up and smile because you are focusing on what you are doing.
~But when we do get you to smile. You look SO CUTE!!
Love your smile.
I have cherished all of the many moments of your first year.
And look forward to the many new adventures to come.
Happy Birthday Daniel!!!
I love you to infinity & beyond!
