Wow - I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted already - Where oh where did that time go??
We had a great week with a few not so great moments as well, but who doesn't have those?
We are working on words, but mostly we're getting babble with a few words mixed in. His newest word is 'up' as before he would push on our legs when he wanted to be picked up and we just kept saying up, up, up when we lifted him for about 2 days and now he will say up instead of pushing us. We are working on animals but i'm mostly getting sound effects. So if I point to a cat he says "meow". I suppose this is my fault because I love to make animal sounds!!
This week we visited D's first plant nursery and bought some flowers which we planted yesterday with Grandma. We had trouble getting him to understand how not to step on the flowers. We pointed to his shoes and we tried showing how to be gentle. We also tried comforting the flowers he stepped on. No luck!! We bought him his own gardening tools - just his size but of course he only wanted ours and he managed to trip me with the handle of the rake. That was fun. We also managed to get onions planted and are headed out later today to get some tomato plants.
We went to my grand neices first bithday party and of course D's Aunt Cathy gave him an entire cupcake - pictures below!! He was up that night for over an hour at midnight - thanks Cat!!
Also a big congratulations to my sister Cathy as she and her husband are expecting their first child together!! WOO Hoo!! Daniel needs another cousin!!
Lastly we made a trip to visit Troy's parents - Granny and Grandpa. He did well on the drive (about 2 and 1/2 hours) and we stayed all day. We managed to get our first decent family photo there. There's just something about Granny!
This week proves to be pretty busy also. We have our IAD clinic appointment tomorrow and a few other things going on this week. We'll update again soon!!
