"He's not nothing anymore!"

Danny turned one on Saturday, and it was a beautiful day! Jeffrey actually got to play ultimate frisbee (in shorts! (in January!)), and Jill, Danny, and I got to play on the playground next to where Jeff was playing. The weather was so nice! We are going to do his cake and ice cream tonight, so I do not yet have any of the fun baby-completely-smeared-with-cake pictures, but hopefully I will soon!

On his birthday, we told Jill that Danny was one now, and she wanted to know what he was before. I think I said "zero" and Jeff said "nothing." Either way, Jill very excitedly went to her brother and exclaimed, "Danny! You're not nothing anymore!" And he really is something. ;)

Last night we were at my mother-in-law's house, and Jill and Danny were playing with the train table Santa gave them (and all the future grandchildren). Jeff was lucky enough to catch this moment on his camera.

(He was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck twice, 
which is why he looks so purpley in this picture. His red is normal though.)

He's a pretty handsome boy these days!

Happy Birthday, Danny. I am so blessed to be your mother. You are very precious to me.


  1. Oh gosh he is so cute! I see so much of both of you in him :) Cute cute cute! Yey for not being 'nothing' any more :D

  2. Danny with the beautiful Tweety Bird eyes and smile that melts a Michigan winter.
    Love you!

  3. Happy Birthday sweet baby boy! Enjoy your cake, and make sure your mommy takes pictures for us to see! (I'm one to talk...)

  4. haha. I laughed out loud at that video. Even watched it twice. Danny is so cute. Time has been good to him based on those pictures! I feel so lucky that I got to meet him and see his cuteness in person. He is such an easy going baby (and since I don't have to deal with his waking up at night) I'd say he is perfect. So glad you are something now Danny boy! Happy Birthday!

  5. Lol that video is too cute!
    Jill is so funny! And so clever!
    Cute pics :)
