The Last 2 Months

Wow I am way behind on this blog! It seems like there are just not enough hours in the day. Daniel has finally played in the snow for the first time (in Janaury). He had been kicking it in the driveway when we come home from work and throwing it in the air but never bundled up go walk in the snow playing. I am not so sure he liked it! Have you ever watched A Christmas Story with Ralphie? Well I was that mom. I didn't want him to get cold or wet so the poor kid could barely move his arms. Everytime he fell down we had to pick him up because he couldn't move. This picture says it all from his perspective:

We were only outside maybe 20 minutes. Carmen (the dog) was running around like crazy but Daniel not so much. Here are a few more pictures of our fun outing in the snow.

What else went on these last few months. Daniel had his first Valentines Day party. I don't think he has a clue what it means to give Valentines but he really liked the ones with puppies and basketballs on them. He also loved the candy but what child doesn't.

It is hard to believe that next week at this time he will be 2 years old. Life has definitely changed for us in the last year. Our evenings are now filled with Imagination Movers, Playhouse Disney soundtracks, giggles, slobbery kisses, flying cars and plenty of hugs. We are on the verge of terrible twos. We are learning the joys of "time outs" at the Heddleson house! I wouldn't change it for a thing. Every night we read from the Rhyming bible Daniel got on his dedication day. The other night I asked him "Who made the stars" (he has a turtle that puts the stars on the ceiling) and he thought a minute then answered very matter of factly "Daddy". Pretty sure that could be considered a correct answer if he didn't mean Mark! Daddy has done and is everything. If Daniel sees a car on TV it is daddy, if a truck drives by again, daddy. It is kind of funny but I am so glad that he loves and admires his daddy so much to relate everything he does to "daddy".

Stay tuned, birthday party pictures and posts will be next and I promise they will not be 2 months late!
