I think we are there. Daniel can be the sweetest cuddliest guy one second and in full on screaming tantrum mode the next. (guess which one I like better?) He is very opinionated on everything, ranging from what he wants to eat, to watch on tv or, to which pajamas he deems to be acceptable. I do my best to give him a couple of options any of which are fine with me to make him feel like he is in control a little bit. He has a few favorite books now that he has pretty much memorized and I can hear him sometimes in his crib reading them to himself. He is also talking up a storm. He repeats everything and is talking in full sentences. It is fun to be able to have real conversations with my baby boy! We do have a good time now that Daniel is a little older. Here is some video from a trip to the zoo we took this morning. He loves playing with the goats in the children's zoo, it has been a favorite of his since our first trip there almost a year ago. He also enjoyed watching the gorillas and the lions and tigers.
