Daniel's Very Own Blog

After much thinking, it occurred to me that every 2 1/2 year old little boy needs to have their own blog! It wasn't a decision that was come to lightly (as I type this with a smirk on my face, trying to pretend like I'm serious about what I'm saying here!).

In any case, the blogging of Daniel began even before he was born. Although, at the time, he was being included in my (Amy's...his mother's) blog. And that continued until after birth, and to about 6 months of age, when my blog temporarily went out of commission (it's still being, stay tuned for that). Likewise, the beginnings of Jared (a.k.a. "Stone Baby Number 2") were chronicled in another blog. So it was about time Daniel had his own. That isn't to say that Mommy hasn't been keeping track...check out Facebook sometime and bits and pieces of what's happened over time can be found.

So, my little first born...what are you up to?

You've grown so much already, and things as of late are no exception! Last weekend, you used the potty...twice! Yes, we're in the throes of potty training. In the past, we've seen you poop in the potty, but never pee. So last weekend marked something new, and hopefully something that you'll continue!

Also this week, you started spouting out your letters. During your shower, we were handing you some of the letters that stick to the shower/bath tub. Much to our surprise, you correctly identified many of them! You're just getting so good at these things. Naming colors? Yep, getting better all the time with that! You can count to 15, and you enjoy counting the stairs in our house as you climb them sometimes. You are really very good at naming all of your Chuggington trains (both the toy trains that you have, as well as when you see them on the computer).

And last but not least, you're a really good big brother. I can't say it enough, but even from day one, you were a big help, and always very sweet to Jared. Both of you will make great big brothers together when another baby comes along (but not for a while, of course!).

With ends the first blog post here!
