Officially A Toddler!

While Daniel has been slowly working up courage to stand on his own, and while Granny saw something that didn't sink in with Mommy a few weeks ago, over this past weekend, this is what Daniel did! Every evening is now filled with similar action, so it won't be long before the callouses on his knees will be a thing of the past!

While Mommy will miss watching Daniel walking on his knees and flying through the hallway on all fours with his bang-bang-bang-bang...she is spoud beyond tears of her big boy!

Summertime, Summertime









What can we say about today except that!




We went to Granny's and stopped on the way and got ice cream. Mommy and Daddy and Daniel all got cones, although Daniel's was the only one with eyes and sprinkles! He got a "Home Run" ice cream ice cream cone. He did much better with it than the first time we stopped - he ate all of the ice cream this time (that didn't melt first). Maybe next time he'll tackle the cone itself!




At Granny's Daniel got to try out the new waterslide. Much to the dismay of everyone, he was not a fan 0 he clung to Mommy and only smiled when Granny squirted him with a water gun. Maybe a pool would be better, after all, it would be more like a bathtub. Mommy thinks it may have been all of the squealing from cousins Jade and Patrick that contributed his dislking.




Summer has officially started at the Clark household!

Happy First of June!














We can't believe the year is half over already!




Or...that its been nearly a month since our last post. Let's see...biggest news:%20Daniel took a few tentaive steps back on May 22nd, but no independant ones since. He happily holds onto one of Mommy's fingers and toddles down the entire hallway, but the confidence isn't there yet.




May 19th Daniel had his 15 month well baby appointment - he is 21 pounds, 3 ounces and 32 inches tall. Dr. Collyer was pleased with his development. And the best news: only one shot! YAY!




That same day, Daniel went to the park for the first time with Mommy & Daddy. He LOVED the swing! He kept saying "wow - wow - wow - wow" the whole time he went back and forth. The little stationery horesy thingie? Didn't care for it...not one bit.




Another first was Daniel's first ice cream cone all to himself! Mommy & Daddy to Daniel to Bruster's and he got a baby cone on the house! He got chocolate - it had sprinkles and eyes! He got more on him than in him, but he sure had fun!




Memorial Day, Mommy & Daddy & Daniel went to Granny and Pap Paps for a cookout. Daniel liked the potato salad and the baby burger Granny made for him. But his best dish was the buns he snatched at the beginning of dinner!




Today, Daddy went and got doughnuts for breakfast. Daniel shared a chocolate cream filled one with Mommy. He really liked it! It was about the only food he liked today - Daniel is making Mommy crazy by hardly eating. We are all hoping its just a phase!




Enjoy the pics!
