Irish Baby Blues

I love Danny's baby blue eyes. They are just like his Daddy's, and I hope they stay that way!

Nothing much new to report here, although I have to admit, I am so happy that it has been warmer lately. The other day, as Jay and I were walking around the parkway with Danny, I felt so happy to hear birds chirping or "twerping" (ha ha, Jay) that I felt like my guts were smiling inside. That's how happy I was, seriously. Sometimes I wonder why I don't live somewhere tropical. But I guess without winter, spring wouldn't seem half so glorious!

Danny is moving a lot more. He still doesn't scoot or crawl forward, but he can move in a circle and he reaches for things. The video below shows him dumping out his toy basket to rifle through the contents. He is very curious, and wants to touch everything all the time. Sometimes he is so strong that when I'm holding him, it is difficult to keep him from grabbing things he shouldn't! He has already pulled the mobile off the crib when Jay was lifting him out... and if there are papers or magazines nearby, you can forget it! I'm enjoying the fact that he isn't crawling yet, because I know as soon as he is, I'll probably spend my whole day chasing him!

In other news, Danny now has 8 teeth, and has bumpy gums where his canines are. 8 TEETH! For crying out loud! The poor child has spent most of his life teething!

Here are some more pictures. I particularly love the video of Danny saying "mmmm!"

Fun in February

I got so behind! Sorry for the lack of updates in February. I had so many photographs and videos that I just put them all in a smilebox. Its long, but if you have the time, there are a lot of "firsts" contained inside.. including Danny's first solid foods! I'll try to do a better job in March!

Hey everybody,

I'm sorry I've been slacking with the blog. Our computer was acting strange for about a week, and I got so behind with all the photos I've been taking that the thought of putting them up is so overwhelming. I've been working a lot of nights lately. I know I'm going to need at least an hour to put the pictures up and I don't know WHEN I'm ever going to find an HOUR! Maybe I can put some pictures up this weekend!
