Hi Leah, what an adorable picture of Danny! That sounds like a really fun place you went to. Love the "choo"! You must have cracked up. I'd be fake sneezing like mad just to hear it. Oh, and I had to laugh about your "holding on for dear life" comment: my birthday was on the 4th and it's the last one I'm going to be acknowledging!!!
Jason's also got his 15-month appointment on Friday. He's still being a little devil. The fourth molar is just peeking through now, thank goodness. And for some weird reason (NOT that I'm complaining!) he's been taking awesome naps the last few days instead of his usual 30 minutes. He slept 2 1/2 hours on Sunday, which he hasn't done since he was 3 months old. I almost went in to see if he was breathing! I'm sure it's just a phase but I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts. He also gave up his morning bottle on his own this week. His morning routine has been to go to the fridge, pull on the door, screech at me until I open it , then he'd take out his bottle of milk. Last few days he's been reaching in and selecting a container of yogurt instead. So we're down to one bottle before bedtime. Yay! Like Danny, he's also doing cute things like following directions, giving a bottle to a baby doll, and mimicking whatever I'm doing or big brother is doing. One good example of that is throwing stuff in the garbage. I remember this phase with Brian, we lost all kinds of stuff, a few pieces of silverware, the remote control, a medicine spoon, etc, etc!
Here he is with his latest obsession, pushing DH's full-size mower up and down our very long driveway!
