This weekend we braved the weather and headed to Ocean City Maryland for Zeyda's wedding. We are so happy to welcome Judy to our family. Daniel had a little bit of difficulty sleeping so he was a little cranky (this explains him wearing his winter coat to walk down the aisle...) but it was a nice weekend and a beautiful wedding.
Daniel started to "get" Chanukah this year. He likes to open presents and he enjoys the candles although he usually sings happy birthday and tries to blow them out. He also followed a long family tradition and LOVES our family Chanukah cookies. We also celebrated Poppop's 60th with a nice family dinner during which Daniel behaved so well we couldn't believe it!
Wow, another year has come and gone. We had Daniel's 2 year appointment just a few days after his birthday. He is 28 pounds and 34 1/2 inches tall putting him right in the 50th percentile for both. Of course these were both approximate since he was less than cooperative. He also now "gets" what going to the Dr means and is less than pleased at the prospect. He is now talking non stop, even putting together 4 and 5 word sentences. Of course him being able to communicate means he can tell me what doesn't want to do just as often as it allows him to communicate what he does want. We had an awesome party to celebrate at Bouncetown with all his friends and quite a bit of family too. He had a great time and can't wait to go back again. His new favorite thing to do is sing Happy Birthday and eat "happy cake".
